Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2014
4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had on-tap at Boat Works in St. Clair Shores, Michigan.
Appearance: Black with a creamy tan head. Phenomenal lacing. Apparently to the average person it looks like a Coke...
Smell: It smells like a mint stout. Imagine that. It doesn’t have that singe-your-nose-hair mentholtastic mint aroma you may expect, which is a good thing. A lot of chocolate with a fair share of mint.
Taste/feel: I jumbled between a 3.75 and a 4 and just went with the 4... especially since this beer tastes even better when it warms up a little bit. This is definitely a sweeter beer, with only a bit of roasty/dark chocolate bitterness. It definitely tastes like chocolate mint ice cream or things of that sort, but thankfully it still drinks like a BEER. I was looking forward to this, and it didn’t let me down.
