Small head but it leaves a blanket of lace. Not ass dark as most Stouts as some light shines through.

Exactly as advertised, with a great peppermint aroma.

Okay, I find this to be a really cool beer. This is like a Girl Scout's thin mint cookie. I've got to give them points for the originality. AND it tastes good. Okay, I need to get serious here as this is a novelty beer, but I do like it. It's very easy to drink, but it has two flavors: mint and chocolate. I can see this being very successful with the night club set, reminiscing about their childhood days.

Nice dark glass of beer. Has very little foam, almost none. Smells like mint, chocolate, coffee. Taste just like a liquid version of a peppermint chocolate candy, although they have done away with the sweetness. It is not a sweet beer at all, and actually there is no sweetness lingering. It is a straight stout, not overly bitter, and a bit watery.

Nice idea.

Wow. This beer is perfectly named. Totally captures the flavor of a thin mint cookie. Everything I wanted in a beer when I think about mint and cookies. So appropriate.

32 oz growler poured into a tumbler.

Appearance - Black, a little transparent at the edges. Big off white head. Lasts forever. Nice lacing inside the glass.

Smell - Peppermint and dark chocolate. Blends nicely and smells exactly what I expected it to.

Taste - Peppermint. Dark chocolate roasted malts. Peppermint lasts throughout and lingers in the finish, making it a little astringent at points. The chocolate turns bitter and begins to taste like coffee.

Mouthfeel - High carbonation. Too thin. Bitter finish.

Overall - The adjunct flavors taste great, but the stout lacks some body.
