I'm going against the grain I guess here; I loved the non-ba version

A- Nice black thick molasses, coffee head in color, medium lacing with low legs

S- Nice mint leaf>chocolate>great malt backbone. Can't complain

T- Everything is in the right proportions IMO here. Mint, chocolate and malty backbone. Love it

M- Nice and thick and smooth, just the way I like non-ba stouts. Perennial nails another one.

O- Maybe some people don't like this extreme amount of flavor with their stouts, but this one was great for me. I loved it. I should get more of it!

On draft at Whole Foods in Alexandria, VA.

The beer is black with a thin beige collar. The aroma offers a huge helping of chocolate mints, dominating the scent. The flavor follows suit. Think Girl Scout thin mints or Andes candies in beer form. True to the name. It's certainly well executed. that said, it becomes cloying rather quickly. A fun beer to sample or enjoy a small pour, but a bottle could easily be split many ways.

On tap at Bridge Tap House in St. Louis.

A: Black body with brown highlights and a dense tan head. Tremendous retention and gorgeous lacing. Perfect.

S: Overpowering mint. Smells more like mouthwash than beer, albeit in a very authentically minty way. I admire the intensity.

T: Follows the nose: more Scope than Thin Mint at first, although a touch of smooth chocolate does show up as it warms. Ok, but unbalanced.

M: Smooth, well carbonated, full body. Great.

O: Interesting but a bit disappointing.

Cheers!
