Bottle Appearance: Oily, pitch black Aroma: Chocolate and mint Taste: Bittersweet chocolate, with a fairly bitter mint finish. Palate: Heavy body, mouth coating, flat, mint provides a bit on sensation on the tongue Overall: Good beer; I like the fact that it ends up being more bitter than sweet... avoids coming across as artificial.

Black as night in appearance. Light does night penetrate this one. Good head retention. Very much so like a thin mint Girl Scout cookie on the nose. Very rich in flavor and this is like dessert in a glass. The mint flavor is barely held in check by the luscious chocolate flavoring and roasted barley. The mint also does a great job of masking the alcohol.

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.

Picked up the bottle locally, enjoyed from a savor tulip. Brew poured a gorgeous silk black that settled into the glass with a generous creamy milk tan head that hung out forever. As soon as i opened the bottle the smell of.mint chocolate chip ice cream filled the air. Upon closer inspection, that is the perfect analogy. Really nice nose. Flavor is more beery with a nice chocolate malt with mint glazed over the top. Not quite a good as the nose would suggest, but tasty none the less. It is an interesting mix for a beer, but this one is as good as any other i have tried, but i don't think mint chocolate beer I'd ever something that i will flip out for...but certainly an curious about the barrel aged version if this one.

Thanks to Joe for the hook up on the 32oz growler.

A- Pours pitch black with a very slight tannish head. This stuff is thick and a bit oily.

S- Smells of sweet chocolate with some slight hints of mint. Nice dark malt profile.

T- The chocolate is quite prevalent, with little hints of mint coming through. Beautiful chocolate malt profile, with a touch of hoppiness. I would have expected a bit more mint coming through, but the base beer is delicious.

M- Nice full body with just the right touch of carbonation. Could have used a little more bubbles, but that could be as a result of the growler.

O- Overall, this was the best Mint Chocolate stout that I've had. While it could use a bit more mint, the base beer was very very good. The chocolate and malt profile work very well together, and make this beer very drinkable. Curious to see if it is any different out of the bottle, but I might need to swing back for another growler.

The beer pours a jet black with a thin, wispy tan head that laces. The nose is cool mint and a touch of sweet chocolate. It drinks with chocolate and malt sweetness forward followed by non-artificial mint leaves that sooth and cleanse the palate. A hint of alcohol and mint leave a quickly fading bite in the finish. The mouthfeel is a rich, full-bodied sweetness followed by a biting minty finish. This is an elegant thin mint in a glass. I'm definitely grabbing a bottle while it's still available.
