cracked one open thats been in the bottle for 2 weeks. was worried and skeptical after bottling day taste but everything is rounding out nicely. the aroma is strong of mint- no vegetal flavors. thin tan creamy head- the supposed oils in cocoa powder were not a problem. when you taste it the mint hits you right up front, followed by a slight chocolate that mixes with it, then they both fade to more of a generic stout but the mint lingers on to the finish. great recipe, cant wait to see how the flavors develop. my only concern was a slightly 1 dimensional character due to my use of safale us 05, its too clean and will rebrew this with a more appropriate strain of yeast.
