Vernal Minthe Stout by Ska Brewing Co.
American Stout
5.80 % ABV

Real spearmint and peppermint
— not extract — combine with cocoa nibs and vanilla beans to create your reward for making it through winter.

Ancient Greeks tell us ('cause we talk to them) that Persephone turned Minthe into a mint plant in a jealous rage, to keep the little nymph away from her man Hades. Jealous rages rarely end well, but if one did result in mint we're glad: this is a unique and delicious stout, and we recommend having one while you calm the hell down.

Once we translated their Castilian, we realized we had to support their dream. We knew you wouldn't let us down, grapes. An oak-aged stout fermented with Malbec grapes. Complex and slightly boozy, yet balanced.

SOUL MATES
A sweet stout with real peppermint, spearmint, cocoa nibs and vanilla beans. A great dessert beer, or try it alongside any dish with mint in it, like Thai Grilled Beef Salad.

Sweet, with roasted and chocolate notes for balance. A lingering peppermint note brings you back for another sip...

(Served in a Nonic)
A- This beer pours a jet black body with a bubbly tan head that last a good bit.

S- The minty herbal aroma reminds me of old time aftershave with some vanilla notes in the finish. Some woody herbal qualities come through as it warms. Some brewer’s licorice comes through in the finish aswell.

T- The spearmint flavor is fresh but mild with a roasted black malt finish that is stronger. The blend of cocoa nibs and slight fresh mint hint linger in the finish.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle fizz in the finish.

O- This beer is really well built and all the flavors blend and balances but they are not muttled. This is very interesting and the mellow stout is really needed to show the mint.
