COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION Widmer took a classic holiday candy and converted it into malty goodness. Locally sourced peppermint and cocoa powder and cacao nibs give this porter a wonderful aroma of chocolate and mint. You’ll experience a slight menthol like cooling up front that finishes with the wonderful flavor of chocolate. The brewers added just enough hops to accent the peppermint and balance out the chocolate notes.
Tap @ Holiday Ale Fest... Poured dark, near black with a light tan head. Chocolate, minty nose. Ashy, roasted malts, toasted caramel sweetness, with added mint and roasted malt. Burnt grains, and a charred wood character. Someone actually pulled off mint in a beer.
