Pours thick unclear black rich coffee with a beautiful dark cocoa head. Aroma brings some smokiness balanced with not so sweet mint and then rich chocolatey notes so nice. Flavor of an Andes mint, nice balanced chocolatey and subtle mint that has faded nicely over a few years. The barrel has called down nicely but is still great bring there with vanilla notes right where it needs to be with the mint and chocolate.

Awesome mostly minty smell. Taste is very mint chocolate. Just awesome. Easily the best mint chocolate stout I’ve had so far. Low carbonation with a thicker but not quite oily body.

bottle in a trade. shared with 2 friends. poured a pitch black colour leaving a small mocha coloured ring on top. smell of after eight chocolate! mint leaves dipped in chocolate and whisky! still a lot of mint in the smell and taste but not overwelming! oak, vanilla coffee, roasted malts, spice of the whiskey barrel,rye, chocolate chip cookie, bit of a spiced mint flavor of the barrel. this is one unique stout! refreshing mint, it is really complex and blended perfect together with the stout/vanilla and whiskey barrel. it’s something you need to share! nice sipper!

Bottleshare thanks to Daniel 9029340932740, or whatever...
Pours black with tan head. Aroma is rich chocolate, coffee, mint, and richness. whiskey and sweetness at the end. Taste is sweet, chocolate, mint, vanilla. I don’t get whiskey up front, but it does change the beer for the better, Certainly makes the base beer better. In the end - really good.

Pours a dark black. Smell is whiskey and mints. Taste is better than the non BA version. Mint in the front end and whiskey in the back end. I like it a lot. I am glad i traded for this beer. It is great all around..
