From a bottle it is brown with a slight head. The aroma is of bourbon and mint. It tastes of chocolate and mint and has. A bitter and sweet flavor that resonated on the palate

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of peppermint patties. Flavors of mint, chocolate and notes of coffee. Gentle roasted finish. Nice dessert beer.

22oz bottle. Rating #69 (haha). Dark cola brown with a tan head. Big mint aroma with some vanilla and chocolate and coffee to add a bit of bitterness. Flavor is decent, more mint and coffee with some dark chocolate and a little bourbon, not bad, but it needed a little more body for the barrel aging. (2796)

Dark black pour with a nice tan head. Strong bourbon and mint nose - really wonderful! Not too thick, but a big burst of coffee, bourbon and heavy mint in the taste. Unlike any other beer I have has before, really nice!!!

Pours a smooth dark brown color with a slight bit of carbonation. Proclaims on it’s bottle to be a "Bourbon Barrel Coffee Mint Stout." From the scent I can definitely pick out the peppermint and coffee along with some robust malts. There is an explosion of flavors in it’s taste. Mainly sweet caramel malts stand out with the taste of coffee and a dash of sweet peppermint. Perhaps what makes this beer the best is it’s bourbon barrel process in combination with the ingredients used. Fairly robust and delicious. Granted I’m drinking this in the summer but this would make a great Christmas present as a stocking stuffer.

22oz bottle from Atom, thanks Adam! Pours a deep brown, mostly black colored body with a finger-width, creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is like a Peppermint Patty. Lots of mint with a nice chocolate backing. Bourbon comes out a bit more as this warms as well as a light roasty note with just a touch of coffee. Flavor is similar. The mint is again strong, but thankfully not too overpowering. Still very reminiscent of a Peppermint Patty up front, but the chocolate is sweet enough to keep it balanced. A light bourbon towards the end as the roasts and coffee come out a bit more before this finishes somewhat dry and a bit woody with a pleasant, cooling peppermint. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a really unique and enjoyable stout. The mint is strong, but really well balanced by the chocolate and light bourbon, wood, roast, and coffee elements. Would love to see this in a slightly bigger body, but as it is, this is really easy drinking. Great beer.
