    Me three. It just sounds delicious.

    According to the TX Label Approval thread, this beer should be available real soon.

    Had it at GABF. It's pretty good and worth seeking out. The mint is balanced very well.

    The Ben E Keith rep for CM Westgate reckoned "two or three weeks" when I asked him on Wednesday. He said that Lukcy Basartd would probably be here before Mint Chocolate, maybe next week.

    To update as of yesterday, looks like thhhe Mint Chocalate should be soon; maybe this week and looks like Double Bastard will arive before Lucky.

    As always, nothing is set in "Stone".

    Got a bottle of Mint Chocolate and Lucky Basterd at Sunrise in Austin today. They got a single case of each, 1/person, so get it while you can.

    Picked these babies up today, then promptly took them to the car wash with me. :p I'll be drinking one tonight, and will report back. BTW - got em at Specs RR. They got 1 case, limit is 2, and they're in the back.

    Still have about a case of this up at Bangers. I like how they made three different labels for each of the collaboraters for this beer. The Iron Fist one is hilarious.

    This is a beer that definitely improves as it warms. First sip, cold and right out of the bottle, showed no real signs of the mint or chocolate flavors. After 5-8 minutes coming up to temp, however, its a totally different beer.

    Gentle mint flavor that is well defined but doesn't overwhelm the beer, with a nice chocolate backbone. I'm glad I got 2, and honestly might grab a few more if they're still around in a few days.

    I thought it was a chocolate bomb start to finish, but didnt get the mint as strong as I would of liked.
    Damn good beer nonetheless...

    I dont think its on tap there, I think they're selling the bottles. Their Fb post about it showed a picture of the bottle.
