Dark pour. Coffee, mint, bourbon, raisin pour. Flavor is much the same and incredibly unique wow.

hopscotch (10901) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Bottle Pours dark brown with a small, creamy, taupe head. Good retention. As expected, the bouquet is a bit odd herbal sassafras, dark chocolate and a whisper of sourmash whiskey. Medium-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is chocolaty with a touch of mint and a mild, herbal, sarsaparilla component. Tilts just a tad toward the sweet side of balance. Things wrap up with nice mocha and a subtle kiss of acidity.

deyholla (10792) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Bottle thanks to someone at freetail release. Pours a near clear dark brown with an earthy brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of mint with roasted malts and a bit of sweet bourbon. Flavor has a bit of mint but mainly roaseted malt and a bit of bourbon,

j12601 (9890) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Pouring at the grand tasting at RBSG in Philly. Pours a light black to brown with a thin white head. Mint chocolate chip ice cream. Light isopropyl, more mint and cocoa. Minty and herbal, spicy and smooth. A bit too minty perhaps? Chocolate, coffee, and light wood and roast on the finish. Very interesting beer.

arminjewell (9426) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Bottle, pours deep black with thin tan head. Aroma has notes of peppermint patty to a tee, lots of peppermint, bordering on vegetal, with chocolate, slight vanilla, coffee, slight notes of caramel. Taste is slightly vegetal, but not as minty chocolate as the aroma, with more complex notes of roast, toffee, burnt sugars along with the mint and chocolate. Coffee is more prevalent. Overall a very interesting beer, creative and unique, but feel like some areas could improve.

douglas88 (8749) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle thanks to Dallas. Pours a pure black color with a medium grey head. A light nose of chocolate, roast and mint. The flavor is odd: clear mint, dark chocolates, a thin palate. Some ash. OK.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2008
On tap at GTMW. Poured deep brown with a light cap of deep beige head. The aroma was sweet with Andes candies as the most accurate descriptor (hefty mint and sweeter chocolates).. the barrel impression was light and just left a little vanilla and sweet bourbon in there. The flavor had sweet chocolates again at the core with tangy bourbon and oak surrounding.. warmth brought out a whole bunch of mint and finally a little of the promised coffee (the java was surprisingly light in this brew).. the odd components worked surprisingly well in here. Medium-bodied with a creamy, smooth feel on the palate.. long, refreshing impression on the finish. Tasty.

JaBier (7394) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2011
Bottle shared by a friend. Darkest brown pour with a thin beige head. Malty and chocolatey nose with mint, coffee and a cough drop note from the mint. Very mentholy. Cough drop flavor with some sourness (possibly from the barrel, possibly infection setting in), chocolate and mint before a coffee finish.
