look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Thick black body. Nice mocha head. Thick collar.

Smell - Tons of mint. Overpowering mint. Chocolate.

Taste - Chocolate. The mint takes over. Really too strong of a mint flavor that comes off as very sharp in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Thick and heavy. Overcarbonated.

Overall - I thought I'd like this more, but the mint is too much.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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.
