Notes: Big & Bold with a touch of Mint. This Imperial Chocolate Milk Stout is kicked up a notch by using fresh picked mint in the brewing process. The milk sugar leaves a pleasant residual sweetness that is balanced with the chocolate & biscuit notes of the specialty malt that are seductively balanced with aroma of the cacao nibs and fresh mint. Look out Keebler we got a thin mint beer!

Excellent imperial stout - though ABV and feel reminded me more of a regular stout - with a good hit of mint. No date printed on bottle. Pours a deep dark rich brown, almost black color with some off-white head and spotty lingering lacing. Smells of rich chocolate fudge, mint, caramel, vanilla, lighter medium roast coffee and nuts. Taste follows the nose, with a great-tasting mint - not artificial or overly sweet. Reminded me a little of a mint-infused mocha coffee (rather than toothpaste or an after-dinner mint or York candy). Fairly rich but a little thin on the mouthfeel, decent carbonation, one could easily be fooled into thinking this was actually a regular stout (instead of an imperial one). Very tasty, nonetheless. Good with savory dinner as well as sweet dessert.

Deep black, with red tint when looking through the edge. It had a very thin head, split the bomber with my eldest daughter and we drank it out of snifters. Sort of smells like a Thin mint.
It is a nice imperial stout with a lite chocolate nite with a touch of fig, and a subtle mint finish. It is not overly sweet. All in all a nice Imperial Milk Stout that I would buy again. Even my wife thought it was “not bad” , she likes Mexican beer and the Oatmeal Stout from Buoy Brewing, and that is about it. I’m going to have to find their tap room in Vancouver!
