You can really smell the mint and chocolate like junior mints. It's jet black and smooth. The taste is like the nose and you are really not let down between the nose and the taste. It is easy to drink a lot of this. A very balanced flavor profile. Many people we shared a growler with on Dark Lord Day also commented that the mint was very balanced. This is an excellent beer that I hope is brewed often.

This beer smells and tastes like Thin Mints. The mouthfeel is so rich. You get loads of chocolate maltiness matched by a sweet mint character that tastes fresh and not medicinal or artificial. It pours thick and jet black. This is the best mint stout that I have had and would be a perfect dessert with or on top of vanilla ice cream.

Thanks to redbird!

Perennial 17 pours black with a large mocha head. The aroma is nice, it's got the usual imperial stout roastiness and chocolate flavors, but with a very nice mint note on top. I'm a mint and chocolate kind of guy, so I'm very much enjoying this. The taste is very nice - it offers a herbal mint that sits over strong roast malts and coffee flavors. As I sip more, i become more accustomed to the mint flavor, which melds very well with the stout base. I can't say I've had another mint chocolate stout to compare this to, but it's tasty as hell. The mouthfeel is on the full side of medium, and the drinkability is exceptional. Overall, Perennial 17 is a tasty as hell stout. I'm really happy with the mint flavor, it makes drinking the whole bottle a much easier task than it would have been.

Thick and chunky. One of the most tar-esque beers I've ever seen. Jet oil black. Head is minimal and lacing is also, but damn it's thick.

Tons of *fresh* mint buried in milky chocolate. Bready and nicely spiced.

A bit green and overly mint, but it sure is fresh and nice for a 75 degree day; rare for a stout this dark. Loads of heavy chocolate. Dry, earthy, fluid, easy drinker. Carbonation is mild and nice. Bitter bite is not found and sweetness is relaxed. Nothing too over done.

Definitely one of the best Mint Stouts I've ever had. Highly recommended. Style is nearly perfect.
