Know what you're getting into. If you don't like York's Peppermint Patties or Andes Mint Chocolates, then give this one a wide berth, and particularly because it's not cheap. But it's a beautiful-looking beer, and deftly crafted (these flavors/ingredients can't be easy to work with, or balance). I, personally, am glad to have tried it, but I also know I won't ever feel the need to try it again. There are better straight-up imperial stouts, and there are better straight-up mint chocolate candies. And they are considerably less expensive.

This beer will clear your congestion with only a smell. Only for the mint lovers. Perfect mouth feel. Chocolate balances the strong mint. Phenomenal beer.

If you like chocolate and mint, you'll absolutely love this beer... it seems like Perennial used the same base stout as Sump and Abraxas, which has an amazing mouthfeel. Tastes like an Andes mint chocolate.

If you don't like mint, don't bother going for this beer. It is what it says it is.

Menthol. So much mint and chocolate. Too much mint. Roasted malts. Not a big fan.

The first thing that struck me, as I was pouring, was the viscosity of this beer. Wicked dark and somewhat thick. Nice thick brown head. Nose is very apparent mint. Flavor brings a good deal of it too. Though after time, it is washed out for the most part by the cacao and other typical impy stout characteristics. Chocolate, mild molasses, smoothly sweet wads of malts. Great beer. My first mint stout and I love it. More please.

Good lord, who thought this was a good idea? Smells like someone dumped some peppermint extract into the beer prior to bottling. Overpowering everything - I can barely smell any chocolate or anything else - this smells way overdone. This is confirmed on the palate. Incredibly intense, grossly so, the mint is overpowering. I had to spit this out. Awful.
