A - dark black, nice tan head
S - awesome mint dominated with chocolate - think Girl Scout Thin Mint
T - very good - mint, chocolate, roasted sweet smooth
M - nice thickness
O - very good, I was worried it might be too much mint, but so not at all

This beer tastes like Thin Mints; I don't know what else I can say about it that might be useful. Do you like Thin Mints? Specifically, do you like alcoholic Thin Mints? Then buy the shit out of this beer; it's everything you could want out of a beer that tastes like Thin Mints. Don't like Thin Mints? Go fuck yourself, but also this beer probably isn't for you.

As heretical as it sounds, I think I prefer this to Abraxas. I can buy a lot of better Mexican Chocolate stouts for much less than $25 a bottle. $17 a bottle is still a lot for a non-BA stout, but I'd be much more willing to buy it again. It is what it is, and it does what it does better than other mint flavored stouts I've tried, and I can't say the same for what Abraxas is trying to do.

Pours opaque black with a tan head that quickly disappears completely. A huge amount of mint and dark chocolate flavor and aroma. Thick creamy texture. Tastes like a York Peppermint Patty candy.

Be in the mood for mint on this one because it tastes like 17 mint leaves went into each glass. Mint on nose and at first sip followed by roasted malt and bitter chocolate. Coffee rounds the flavor and I'm left with to much bitterness. Cocoa, burnt malt, and black coffee leave to much bitterness on this beer. Mint needs a bit of sweetness to make it enjoyable and this beer has none. I was left chewing mint leaves and washing them down with bittersweet chocolate chips. I was hoping for mint hot cocoa, but finished disappointed.
