Poured a black body with one finger tan head that leaves some lace patches down the glass. Aroma is pretty much chocolate with some mint presence in the back and touches of roasted malt. Smooth, light, easy to drink, I can see why some people might not consider this a true beer as for a split second it seemed like I was drinking a dairy based drink. Nonetheless, I quite enjoyed this beer. The chocolate and mint offer up a good sweetness and are balanced and there is a touch of roasted malt presence in this beer along with a dry finish. Maybe b/c I like sweet beers and sweet things in general I liked this beer more than others but it was simple yet oh so good.

Very unique beer. Thick and viscous, it pours opaque black with a thick foamy milk chocolate head. Loads of mint and cocoa in the smell. Tastes sweet and minty like a chocolate candy cane or an Andes mint in beer from. Pretty boozy; actually tasted like more than 10% and wasn't hiding anything. Heavy like cream in mouthfeel. Couldn't drink it frequently but a fun change of pace if you know what you're getting into.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled 3/2014.

Pours an almost opaque super dark crimson-brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, mint, herbal toothpaste, and mint mouthwash aromas. Taste is much the same with mint chocolate candy flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with slight toothpaste and mouthwash aromas, but the flavors are more candy like.
