3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured on draft at Weasel Boy. Pours a darker brown with a tan head of foam that is short lived, but leaves a ring around the glass. The aroma is roasty and sweet with the mint just barely being noticeable. The mint actually comes through a little odd. I don’t know that I would be able to tell it was mint if I wasn’t already told so. The taste is roasty and herbal, the mint comes through a touch, but really plays almost no part. Probably my favorite of my trip.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, dark black with thin beige head. I can’t really get anything from the aroma, just some slight roasted malts. Taste is weak chocolate, some dark fruits, weak mint, not what I was expecting. Meh

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at OH! Growlers! Tasting on 01/31/2012: The beer pours dark brown with a thin beige head that burns away fairly fast to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark mint chocolate and malt. Medium body with a sweet chocolate flavor and mint character that is more Klondike Bar than Andes Mint. Some malt as well. The finish is chocolatey with a slightly minty aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Glass at Weasel Boy on 11/25/11. Dark brown pour with a very thin off-white to beige head. Aroma of milk and dark chocolates, roasted malt and subtle mint. Roasty flavor with subtle mintiness and a good amount of chocolate before a roasty finish. Was expecting the mint to be more in your face, but still a tasty stout.
