3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours thick and black with a very small tan head that disappears quickly. The nose is bit time mint chocolate, overpowering, smells like hersheys mint chocolate syrup. Taste is sweet and balanced however. Delish. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy after the initial alc burn that associates with BT. Body is heavy and the finish is long. Still no replacing the original but can’t knock them for trying.

At The Bruery. Mint and chocolate aroma with some alcohol. Lots of chocolate mint flavor with roasted malt and bourbon alcohol. Think Chocolate Rain with Mint.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black pour with no head or carbonation. Candied mint aroma, chocolate, alcohol, bourbon, and oak. The vanilla is a bit overshadowed. Smells a bit on the sugary side. The flavor is akin to an Andes mint. Intense sugar sweetness, oak, and bourbon. Quite boozy, some intense mint flavor, and a decent amount of chocolate. Okay, but not something I was able to drink much of.
