The appearance was a dark chocolaty brown with no head to speak of. Then again, it was served in a plastic cup. Not much of a smell when cold. As it warmed up you could smell a hint of mint and coffee. The flavor was similar to their Russian Imperial Stout (with the addition of chocolate). It had a bitter chocolate flavor (thus the name), but it also had a coffee flavor. You couldn't taste the mint, only smell it as you were drinking it. It was bitter, not from hops, but from the chocolate. As it warmed up it became sweeter. The mouthfeel was light and easy (i.e. It went down smooth). I wouldn’t say this is my favorite beer, but it was easy to drink a few.

The appearance of this beer was a little dissapointing. It had a small head that didn't last long and it left just a little lace. The color was black as night though and that looked good.

The smell was of mint with a subtle hint of chocolate. That is exactly what I expected. There were not really any pronounced aromas. The mint was the most forthcoming but it was still a little subdued.

That taste was great. It had a great stout flavor. You could tell there was some roasted barley that gave you a little coffee flavor with some roasted bitterness. There was a subtle mint flavor, not overpowering which was good, and some dark chocolate. I thought it was very well balanced. The alcohol was 7.1% and that was hidden well. I think if it wasn't the beer would have lost a lot. The mint would have had to compete with the alcohol and it would have lost it's appeal.

The mouthfeel was pretty good. It could have been a little thicker but the carbonation was right on. It was subtle carbonation, exactly what I want in a stout.

This was far too drinkable. It went down really easy and it was smooth. The alcohol was hidden really well even at 7.1%. A great limited edition from Maumee Bay Brewing.

$1.25 for a 12 oz. plastic glass at happy hour.

This is your standard stout from Maumee Bay. It had that Maumee Bay taste to it. I don't know if it's their yeast or their equipment, but the same taste runs through all their beers. The chocolate mint stout is no different. It's good, but not much mint and not much chocolate taste there. My wife thought it tasted like Scope, so there's some room to argue. Check it out if you're in the area.
