Purchased 2012. Pours a deep black with a razor thin tan head. Has a rich chocolate dark roasted caramel malt nose, with some dark fruity notes and slight licorice sweet bitter flavor on the end. The palate is a full rich creamy body with good carbonation, a bit of sticky mouth feel. The finish is sweet chocolate, roasted caramel malt, some mild mint flavor shows up as it warms up, has a lingering kind of sweet chocolate roasted bitterness on the end. Was expecting a bit more mint but could be the aging. Overall a good drinking tasty and full flavored brew.

Pours jet black with decent brown lacing, strong mint chocolate aroma. Tastes just like it should, rich chocolate with lots of mint. Mouthfeel was the only thing even slightly lacking in this beer. Alcohol is almost not detectable against the overwhelming notes of mint chocolate. These guys had an idea and they executed. Well done. Ken Schmidt should start a brewery if he hasn't already. If only this beer was more widely available...
