COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our Winter Seasonal Release Beer. Perhaps a mint chocolate porter sounds like an odd combination, but we like to think of it as a match made in heaven. The refreshing mint is balanced with subtle hints of dark chocolate notes, making it a complex yet exceptionally drinking winter ale.

From a 12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Pours near black with brown head and lace. Aroma of mint chocolate cookies. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of dark malts, dark chocolate, minerals, slight oak. Overall full bodied with a refreshing dark malt bite.

BlackHaddock (7235) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2017
12oz bottle at my Son-in-Laws (California) on 25th Jan 2017. Very dark, OK, itís black; difficult to get any sort of head, even when I poured robustly. Mint aroma and initial taste, the dark chocolate bit creeps in a little later. I was supposed to share the bottle, but my Son-in-Law is not one for trying different beers and after one sip gave me his half of the bottle. Interesting beer, but the one small bottle is enough for me.

Leighton (21092) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2016
Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours deep brown with a creamy, beige head. The nose holds dry chocolate, roast, burnt wood and cool mint. Medium sweet flavour with mild dark chocolate character, scorched earth, mint leaf. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Good balance on the finish, with nice mint integration, more mint leaves, dark chocolate and mellow earthy bitterness. Good stuff.

Benzai (15486) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2016
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Dutchdebus. Very dark brown color, medium sized light to medium brown colored head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, dark malts, mint and also some chocolate, although perhaps the name of the beer is making me smell that sort of speak. Anyway, at least kinda close to what they say it is. Taste malts, again mint and some chocolate, but not too much so that it becomes undrinkable. A 22oz bottle on my own would be too much no doubt, but a nice glass of this is pretty enjoyable. Well, itís either that or my sense of smell and taste are deeply letting me down tonight. In any case, better than expected beforehand.

DutchDrebus (5960) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - APR 28, 2016
Bottle @ benzai. Brown to black colour with a small brown head. Smells after eight chocolates mostly. Combination of mint and dark chocolate. Tastes minty, chocolate, dark chocolate. I expected some horrible stuff biut itís doable. Not a huge fan though and 75cl would be way too much to drink solo. Medium body, soft to medium carbo.

androman (2293) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2015
650ml shared bottle at home from Craft & Draft, Amsterdam. Body is pitch black, head is big, brown, fizzy rocky, average lasting, fair lacing. Nose is chocolate, chemical, slightly smoky, flavor is chocolate, mild coffee, herbs, dried fruits, light smoke, toast. Medium sweet, medium roasty bitter. Finish is medium lasting roasty medium bitter. Medium to full body, oily texture, fizzy carbonation. Easy dessert beer, too much carbonation, mint is completely missing and not an exciting porter, not bad though.

Bomber pour to cup. Creamy mint cookie aroma. No foam or lacing, looks like cola. Mint mixed with Porter as expected, a bit flat and artificial.

MacBoost (1886) - Victor, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Bomber from A. Miller. Chocolate pour. Minty. High carb. Light roast. Decent toast. Solid.
