I was at Right Brain on Friday and was lucky enough to have this beer on tap.
Appearance - Very dark color, looked how a stout should look. It didn't have too much of a head, but the head that was there sort of looked like it had a little green hue to me. Maybe that's because I already had a few beers is me though.
Smell - It smelled like mint chocolate chip ice cream!
Taste - Just like it smelled. Think mint chocolate chip ice cream or thin mint girl scout cookies.
Mouthfeel - The carbonation was spot on. The beer tasted sort of thick if I remember right.
Overall - Think mint chocolate chip or girl scout thin mint cookies beer. I enjoyed this a lot!
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a 22oz bomber and into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint. Bomber was $6.99, so this had better be good!
Appearance: Pitch black. Dark tan head that has about three fingers, then dies down to a thin foam on top. Very little lacing. Really a nice looking beer, even with a lack of lacing. The bottom of the bottle yields quite a lot of sediment.
Smell: As others have said, chocolate mint ice cream. York peppermint patties. Andes. Girl Scout Thin Mints. Anything you can think of with chocolate and mint.
Taste/feel: It's what the smell is, but more muted. This beer actually has surprisingly little flavor, to me. There aren't bold roasty characters, thick chocolate, or pungent mint -- it's just really mild... not sweet, and very mildly bitter. That's not a bad thing, but not what I was expecting. Beginning to end, this drinks like a weak porter with some mint added. On the finish, I supposed there's a hint of roasted malts, but it's not much. The feel is actually pretty thin, which makes me think of this as a porter. I thought Naughty Girl Stout would be thick. Heavy. Copious amounts of chocolate with heavy notes of mint, but I don't get that.
Bad beer? Nope. I can say that I'm disappointed though... there's just not much in the way of flavor. I suppose this would be a good one to session, but why would somebody really want to session a minty stout, even if it is this mild? I don't know just what to make of this beer, but I don't think it ought to be sold in bombers. I tend to think of beers that are available only in bombers to be massive in smell, taste, and ABV. I love the look of this beer, and it has an inviting aroma, but it's just lacking, overall. A 22oz bottle shouldn't be too hard to finish, just because it's pleasant and not cloying.
