Brewathlon Minty Moose Stout | Chad'z Homebrew Reviews #11

I've had many flavored stouts before (i.e. coffee, chocolate, etc.) but I've never had a MINT stout! Well, my friend Chad aka "BrewAthlon" brewed up a batch of "Minty Moose Stout" based on a Randy Mosher recipe. Unfortunately, he over-primed the bottles and I had to open this in the sink before I even started reviewing. About half the beer was lost to foam, but I managed to save at least half of it to get a good review out of it.
