You can really smell the mint and chocolate like junior mints. It's jet black and smooth. The taste is like the nose and you are really not let down between the nose and the taste. It is easy to drink a lot of this. A very balanced flavor profile. Many people we shared a growler with on Dark Lord Day also commented that the mint was very balanced. This is an excellent beer that I hope is brewed often.

This beer will clear your congestion with only a smell. Only for the mint lovers. Perfect mouth feel. Chocolate balances the strong mint. Phenomenal beer.

On tap at Perennial during SP Pulling Nails release Sat.
Thick and minty just as I heard and it did not disappoint at all!
Amazing but would ensure I had a friend or friends to share as it is a big one if cracking the 750mL.

Stumbled upon this at The Monk Kettle in San Francisco. $38 a 750ml bottle. Little steep but I said why not. Boy, this guy didn't disappoint. Look pours black with cappuccino lacing barely any head which quickly disappears. Smell of mint and chocolate. Lots of cocoa nibs in the smell. Taste is very impressive. Mint up front followed by chocolate chocolate chocolate with a bit of a cookie cracker finish. Alcohol is there. Burn is present at the end but boy is it good. Could be a bit more thick like Even More Jesus but a minor complaint. This was bottled March of this year so I'm curious to see what some age would do on this guy. Top marks Perrenial.

Had this at Mikkeller bar in San Fran. Great nose if you like mint, mouthfeel is silky smooth and great taste. Not sure why this is not rated higher. I really enjoyed it!

Smells of mint and a little chocolatey.. Silky smooth.. Up front it does taste very much like the aforementioned Andes candies.. Some charred taste at the end but extremely enjoyable.. I like mint and really enjoyed this beer.. If you're not a mint fan be cool and leave it on the shelf for the rest of us.. Otherwise this is highly recommended for what it says on the label

This beer smells and tastes like Thin Mints. The mouthfeel is so rich. You get loads of chocolate maltiness matched by a sweet mint character that tastes fresh and not medicinal or artificial. It pours thick and jet black. This is the best mint stout that I have had and would be a perfect dessert with or on top of vanilla ice cream.
