22 oz bottle thanks to TipTop. Served up in a tulip.

A: Pours up a black body with a finger of brown head. Held to the light, it stays mostly opaque except at the bottom where some red hues push through and you can barely see through the beer. The head has decent retention and leaves some spotty lacing on the glass throughout the experience.

S: The aroma is one thing and one thing only. Friggin thin mints. Heavy does of chocolate that is dominated by nose perking mint. I don't remember the first bottle I had last year having this much mint presence, but it is big now. Big in a very good way. I just want to keep my nose in the glass.

T: Its odd what happens here. There is the faintest chocolate and even fainter coffee presences starting things off here. Mint then rides in hard and heavy. I mean, there is almost a menthol like presence at times. Its intense but enjoyable. I cannot pick up on any bourbon at all. That about rounds off the flavor, but its still very enjoyable.

M: Heavier side of medium in body with a lighter carbonation. On the palate, there is sweetness and a touch of that menthol note that gets up into the nose during the sip. ABV is light and barely noticeable. Aftertaste is all mint.

OA: Just a very enjoyable beer. It is incredibly different flavor profile but it works. I kind of wish there was more bourbon presence but I don't know if I could handle the added dose of flavor. This beer is big in flavor and intensity. I am a fan.

Served In: Tulip
