Draft poured into a tulip glass. Pours a nice dark body with a tan head, smell is overwhelmingly of mint and hints of chocolate and roasted malts. The taste is predominately that of the mint, with plenty of bitterness and roasted malt. Little to no taste of chocolate. Decent mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Overall interesting attempt at a well known and well loved flavor combination. Could have worked out better, would have liked more chocolate forwardness and maybe some lactose to mimic ice cream better. Kinda one note.

Like drinking a junior mint. Definitely different but I wouldn't go out of my way to get this offering. Flavorful but just not my thing. Kudos to trying something unique flavor wise without drowning if in booze.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a bottle into a Guinness glass.

Appearance: Brown-black and opaque. Very small tan head.

Smell: Sweet mint and chocolate, also a bit of toffee. Not that far removed from a Girl Scout thin mint.

Taste: Oh, this is sadly very watery. The mint is there in the front, but it's kind of like mint toothpaste. Behind it, the rest of the chocolate stout is pretty weak, too. I'm sure getting what they wanted was an ambitious task, but I don't think this was it.

Mouthfeel: Fairly thin, although the mint makes the finish a little more interesting.

Overall: Not a pour, but I wouldn't buy again.
