750 bottle, thanks Rusty- Pours black with a nice frothy dark tan head. Aroma is minty, chocolatey, tobacco, dark roasted malts. The taste is mint, chocolate, dark roasted malts, sweet and very dessert like, strong alcohol presence, but not boozy. Strong and flavorful, rich.

this was definitely one that was as advertised. poured dark and thick with a dark tan head.

the mint worked in this one. i didn't really get the cacao as much. easily consumed. creamy mouthfeel.

Preface - I love thin mints. I've been waiting a while for this beer and happened upon it at Side Project Cellar in St' Louis, MO. Pours near black with a thick, dark tan head that sticks around for the duration. Smells very minty and chocolatey - if you don't like that combination, then don't order this. Tastes exactly as it smells, and very smooth for 10%. I will drink this again if given the opportunity.

Poured a pitch highly viscous black. The bright brown head was almost over reactive, nearly going over the glass. Aromas remind me of Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies. It had a sweet chocolate presence with notes of mint. The flavors however was different. The rich sweet chocolate stout was noticeable and exceptional; but then came the mint. It was raw and almost a bit too harsh. Like someone dropped a mint candy in the beer. Some may argue that it's not overwhelming but I find it being too much. If it was just kicked back a notch, it would have been a killer beer, like drinking a chocolate mint cookie. The mouthfeel was full-bodied and creamy. Overall the appearance, aroma and mouthfeel were great but when I tasted the mint, it was just too much.

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.
