One of six stouts we shared last night at the Vine Street Pub during Stout Month. This one tasted exactly like it sounds--like a thin mint cookie straight from the fridge. Easily the favorite for all three of us last night. Aromas of cocoa powder, mint and roasted malt. Medium bodied, balanced and delicious. Dark chocolate, thin mint cookies and roasted malt.

A homebrew contest winner tapped at Vine Street pub for Stout Month (drool).
I had this on a nitro tap and wonder if this affected the taste as much as the feel. I didn't have a normal tap sample, so I really wouldn't know.
A dark brown pour, just about reddish black. Chocolate malt looking head. Rich and creamy.
This beer is suppose to resemble a mint chocolate cookie from those scouts who are girls. I can detect a bit of mint in the nose. Along with some plum, cocoa and slight coffee.
Served cold, and I should have waited a bit longer to start drinking, b/c the mint in the taste wasn't really there until the end. For that matter, not much of the other aromas either. Sure, some dark chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. I just wonder if the nitro changed it a bit.
Very smooth feel. A slight bite at the end, and that's where the mint comes in.

On tap at the Vibe Street Pub for stout month, apparently this has mint and cocoa powder. Dark black color, decent head. Smells slightly like chocolate and mint. The taste is spot on thin mint cookies. This really tastes like a mint chocolate cookie stout. Impressive.

On-tap at Vine Street Pub for Stout Month. Served in an 8oz milkshake pilsner glass.

Some literature on the beer:

"Girl Scout Stout: Adam Boggs does it again with this chocolate mint sensation. This year's Stout Month homebrew contest winner features unprocessed cocoa powder and fresh mint balanced by plenty of roasted malt. Adam says it best: "If you like thin mint or grasshopper cookies, or just enjoy having fresh breath right after drinking beer, you'" love this one!"
Malt: Domestic Pale 2-Row, Roasted Barley, Chocolate Malt, Carafa
Hops: Fuggle
Adjunct: Fresh Mint, Cocoa Powder, Pure Peppermint Extract
OG: 1.065
5.7% ABV"

A - The beer pours a muddy dark brown color, not black. A nice creamy brown head, with good retention and lacing.

S - A great nose with a nice mix of mint character along with roasted malt, chocolate, and cocoa. Excellent nose. Very pleasant.

T - The beer starts with a mild mix of chocolate and roasted malt flavors. The middle of the beer brings a mild bitterness from the hops and the emergence of the mint. The beer finishes with a nice mint flavor to complement the roast and bitterness well.

M - Medium bodied with good carbonation.

D - Very easy to drink.

Overall, this was a very good beer. I am glad to have been around to try it. Given the chance I would surely buy it again.

Note: This review was a re-post from my former account, jmkratt, which was hacked and I lost all my reviews...sorry for the redundancy.

Serving type: on-tap
