Have to tell you, I wasn’t entirely sure how this would go. The idea of drinking Mint and Chocolate together had me thinking the beer would either be like melted ice cream, or a stout with mint just shoved in.
…Wasn’t even close. The aroma includes just a hint of mint, with dark chocolate permeating throughout. Take a sip and you get exactly the right combination of rich, bold Stout with the sweet flavors you’d expect from the ice cream.
I cannot tell you how nicely all of the body and mouthfeel played games on my palette. Imagine a scoop of mint chocolate chip ice cream floating in a beautiful, dark & bitter stout.
I am very excited to try another glass, and no doubt that I’ll pair it with my wife’s badass 7 Layer Magic Cookie Bars.
