Pours a dark, dark brown, might as well call this one black - the tan top on this one looks like it'll stick around for a while, but fades surprisingly quick. The aroma is pretty much unlike anything I've sniffed to date; minty and loaded with a menthol-like aroma, followed up by hefty amounts of cocoa and bittersweet chocolates. I'm wondering if they were going for the "Thin Mint" girl scout cookie flavor/aroma here. It's close, but the mint characteristic is a little more medicinal and strong than sweet and tingly like it should be. Mild roast and coffee on the tail end of the nose as well.

The taste is full on with that mint - I have to say the mint comes off a little bit better on the palate than it does in the aroma. Much to my surprise, coffee is a little bit more noticeable on the palate than the chocolate. The cocoa is there, but it really doesn't show up much until the aftertaste. The aftertaste is loaded with a deep, dark cocoa, nearly bittersweet, along with that lasting minty flavor that carries from start to finish. Body is surprisingly light, this feels stronger than 6% ABV. Low-medium carbonation and a lightly silky mouth feel.

Not bad, but nothing excellent either. Different - I'll give it that. I think the mint flavors could've been a little better, they seemed a little awkward and contrived at times. Overall, pretty tasty, but I probably wouldn't seek this one out again.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Big off white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Minty. Roasted malt. A bit of chocolate.

Taste - Bright mint. Chocolate roasted malt. Mint persists.

Mouthfeel - Medium low body. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Packs a lot of nice flavor into a pretty light stout. I'm a sucker for mint, though.

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!

I got a bottle of Right Brain's Naughty Girl Scout from my friend Ben for Christmas, thanks a lot Ben, this is the second beer Right Brain has bottled. I've had this beer before, but i'm happy that I get to try it in bottles now, so let's see how it goes. No visible bottling date, but it's fairly fresh. Poured from a brown 22oz bottle into a snifter.

A- I really like the label, what's not to like about a sexy grown up girl scout, it fits the name nicely, and really catches the eye. It poured a nice dark black color that didn't let any light come through with a finger and a half of dark tan head that died down to a thin ring that left some decent lacing behind. This was a nice looking beer, but I wish it had just a little more head to it.

S- The aroma starts off with a nice amount of dark chocolate followed by some medium roasted malts that imparted a medium amount of sweetness. After that comes the mint which imparts a great spearmint aroma that seems to stick out the most and when combined with the chocolate and roasted malts it really does have a aroma that is similar to those chocolate mint girl scout cookies. This beer had an awesome aroma it's exactly as described and is very similar to the cookie.

T- The taste is pretty similar to the aroma and it starts off with a nice roasted malt flavor that had a good amount of roast to it along with some nice dark chocolate flavors and a lighter amount of medium sweetness. Towards the end comes the mint which is nice and not too overpowering. There was a lighter amount of bitterness with a chocolate and mint like aftertaste. This is a pretty good tasting beer, it tasted just like the cookie, but in beer form.

M- Pretty smooth, a little crisp, medium bodied, and it had a higher amount of medium carbonation. The mouthfeel was nice but the carbonation could have been toned down a little.

Overall I though this was a good beer and a good example of the style, this is the only Mint Stout I have tried.but I really like how the mint is there but it's not overpowering. This beer had ok drinkability, it was smooth and the flavors did a great job at holding my attention, one bottle seems to be the right amount. What I liked the most about this beer was how the beer was exactly as intended and did taste and smell like a thin mint. What I liked the least about this beer was the slightly higher amount of carbonation. it was a little unnecessary. I would buy this beer, it's a good winter time beer and I recommend this beer to just anyone who wants to try a beer that tastes like the cookie. All in all I was happy with this beer, it delivered just what I wanted from it and would make a great dessert beer. Good job Right Brain, this is a good and unique beer, it's pretty memorable.
