Brewed using balsam fir boughs and peppermint, this massive winter stout is black in appearance and is heavily fortified with 9% alc/vol. Welly Mammoth Winter Stout is sure to bring some warmth to fight off the deep chill of winter.

473ml can from scottatron. Canned dec 23rd 2011. Black with a tan head. Deep roasty full flavoured, thick imperial stout. The spruce does not play at all. The best impy Iíve had from Wellington.

[4782-20120916] 473mL can. Smells like peppermint soya candy spice. Black body with a quick bubbly light brown head. More pepperminty soya sauce malt in the flavour with an underlying bitter roast quality. Full body. Really interesting but the roast soya mint is a little overpowering for more than just a sample. (6/3-/7/3/14) 3.3

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2013 2012-09-16. lack body with a nice tan head. Flavour starts or rather pleasant, with a sweet dark malt cord, mild roast malt and a mineral/herbal sarsparila like character to it. Sort of minty? Similar herbal-minty spice in the aroma, mild sweet dark malt below it. Very smooth full bodied plate is just a touch under carbonated. Herbal spice character grows quite a bit strong as it warms, to the detriment of its drinkability. Its okay, but the strong flavour is a bit much after a while. Can from the brewery courtesy of Tupalev has a few months in the cellar

Black pour with nice beige head disappears after a while. Nose is Mint and as said before mint. Almost a tobacco note in the flavor and nose. Mouth feel is lighter then I expected but not bad. Flavor is different but good.

Ontbeertaster (2338) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2012
Can, thanks to scott, pours a nice thick dark black, tastes a fair bit like a tootie fruitiee drink, there really wasnt much roasty, the taste didnt match the appearance, although it tasted quite nice not what I would expect

473ml can provided by tupalev. Oily-looking but fizzy black, large but quick-diminishing tan frothy head. Odd aroma - light treacle, sweetened espresso, light herbal bitterness - and india ink! Taste follows, more india ink and molasses, and now it reminds me of the inside of a ping-pong ball - weird! Syrupy, still, very cloying. Iím afraid I donít think much of this one - but hell, itís probably dead-on some sort of ancient beer style - but I donít like ink or charred cording in my beers.

Johnsense (799) - - JAN 9, 2012
Black pour, fair sized head. Aroma of chocolate mint mostly. Something went wrong beyond that - taste of mint, dirt, almost mossy, chocolate thatís been left out too long. Light getting a mouth full of dirt while crunching a breathmint. Fairly thick body. Preferred Ghosttown to be honest.

Can from the brewery: poured a clear dark mahogany color with a 2 finger sticky tan cap....light carbonation. Aroma is subtly complex - dark dried fruits, coffee, treacle, roasty, mint and cocoa. Flavor has a light sweetness under the roasty-minty-cocoa tones, bit of hoppiness and balsam tag team in the mid palate... dries out in the long roasty finish. The Mint and balsam flavors are not over stated and compliment this big stout quite well. I think the mint and balsam are compatible as stout flavoring and this brew adequately proves that. Mouth feels is silky and it has a smooth character, very easy to drink. If it has a fault itís that it needs a bit of body (maybe some toasted oats to bulk it up)...but thatís just personal preference. All in all a very well carried off brew. Wish there was more available in caged cork bottles ....it would be interesting to see what a few months in the cellar would do to it.

Not to drinkable minty beverage that tasted like mould though fresh. Could have been a decent stout. Unimpressive stout, still thanks fo getting one Stephen.

Can from the brewery courtesy of tupalev - thanks, Jeff! Deep almost-black body with ruby tinges and a small tan head. Aroma is very odd - chocolate is noticeable (as the other raters have all mentioned), but itís dominated by a really unique herbal quality from the mint and balsam, with additional notes of licorice... itís what I imagine some old timey herbal remedy mixture might smell like. Medium bodied, mild carbonation. Flavour starts quite sweet with a hint of molasses, before the herbal notes take hold, with the fir and mint melding with hops and a slight boozy warmth in the medium length finish. Really interesting stuff - I canít say that I loved it, but I certainly liked it, and Iím glad to have tried it.
