Smells like mint dipping tobacco and I couldn't get over it. I understand the appealing theory, but couldn't have more than a sip.

Fun stout. Looks great in the glass and on the pour, thick stout. The look and mouthfeel are spot on. Taste is sweet mint chocolate.

Solid offering.

Near black draft pour with thick brown head, not much lacing. As expected nose carries chocolate and mint but leans toward roasted malt. Flavors seem both muted but more mint. Mouth is huge and carbonation below average.

A cellared bottle from 2/2016 I squirreled away as the fresh draft version I tasted was too much mint for my liking. Pouring it in a 13oz. snifter for the review.

Look- Pours a pitch black used motor oil color with a centimeter of mocha colored foam after a very aggressive pour. It disappears quickly leaving sparse lacing and an oily residue clinging to the glass.

Smell- Dark chocolate, mint, mild tobacco.

Taste- Dark semi sweet chocolate, mint, a little dark roast/char.

Feel- Oily, somewhat thin and flat, but dangerously drinkable for a 10% beer.

Overall- It's definitely a dessert beer! A year has nicely balanced this bottle with equal parts chocolate and mint. It reminds me of Fanny Mae Mint Meltaways or Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies. Very rich and decadent to the point that I'm getting full finishing the final half glass. It's definitely worth a try, share it with a friend.

Appearance: It's a dark black, creamy, decent looking beer with a brown head that has little lacing.

Smell: It's smell is okay...mostly minty, and uniquely mixed with a chocolaty, syrupy type aroma.

Taste: It has a nice taste...sort of like chocolate mint cookies, with a touch of molasses, which nicely balances out the alcohol content.

Mouthfeel: It's body is heavy with some light carbonation, but very smooth and somewhat silky.

Overall: For a stout, I'd say it's a quality beer, and would recommend it for anyone who likes sweet, thick imperials.

Unknown vintage; drank 4/28/16 on draft @ Jerry's Andersonville.

Black/brown appearance.

Dark khaki head; nice lace.

Thin mint cookie notes in the nose; it's uncanny!

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Thin mint cookie flavor up front; faint booze heat notes on the finish. A bit too sweet & simple for me to love, but thin mint fans should horde this!
