Here at Golden West for brunch after yoga, I just have to take advantage of the decent beer selection and get a beer, even though its not even three o'clock in the afternoon yet.

I wrote: "Flying Dog Mint Chocolate Stout. At first I only detect chocolate on the nose. After a bit, I smell an alcohol/mint smell. With some thought, I'm not sure I'd know the difference between them, unless I'm thinking of vanilla, which is nothing like mint. In any case, this beer tastes mostly like a regular stout. Letting the beer sit on my tongue, I could slightly detect a minty flavor. Some moments later, I had burped, and to be frank the minty flavor in it was more noticeable." 2:55PM ET
