3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Inky dark brown with small tan head. Aroma is mint, dark chocolate, some roasted grain and toast. Taste is creamy sweet up front, vanilla and a little raisin; mint emerges in the middle of the swallow and a nice dark chocolate and burnt toast note emerges with the mint at the end. The mint is the primary taste but is not a one-note artificial taste, but actually retains some of the herbal and bitter tones found in fresh mint or raw oil. Emerging bitterness from the roasted grains and perhaps some hops curtails the sweetness at the end of the swallow, and the very is a mild but nice lingering roasted grain bitter. I don’t get much coffee in this despite the name. Palate is ok - light enough to enjoy on a summer day. Overall this is well crafted and tasty, I liked it more than I expected I would.

Just okay...definitely had a chocolate mint thing going, but also this bottle seemed to be souring a bit. Still drinkable.

near black, thin cream ring. Mint heavy nose, synthetic, light cream. Peppermint pattie flavor, thin sticky and sweet. Smooth, very singular, what you’d expect.

Really nice. Perfect balance of peppermint scent and flavor. Nice cocoa and a tiny coffee ending. More other flavor than coffee. Nicely done though. Not overly sweet like an ice cream. Bottle
