De la poudre de cacao dans une base caramélisée délicate et un côté mentholé fort qui se prolonge dans l’amertume torréfiée.

taster at Avery on 11/16/14. brown pour with a tan head. chocolate and mint aromas. strong mint flavors with some chocolate. the mint dominates the finish and lasts like a breath mint. nice but more than a taster would be too much for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear deep brown with a dark beige head. The aroma is earthy and somewhat herbal with cocoa and something almost like marijuana. The flavor is a bit light and nutty and earthy with a mint note that’s not very poignant and it generally kinda falls apart at the end. Not chocolaty enough but there’s still that dry slightly bitter mint note.

Tap at Avery. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is very minty and chocolate- as assumed. A little roast, smells like a peppermint patty. Taste is very minty, sweet, dry backbone, medium to full bodied. Overall, good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taster at Avery’s. Appearance: average sized off-white head, deep amber red/brown color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: mint, cereal, chocolate, vanilla, roast, nuts. Palate: full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Taste: heavy sweetness the whole way through, tastes like a Girl Scout Thin Mint. Overall, I really enjoyed this beer, it is different and well done, even if it is not the most balanced (too much mint).

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2013 Special tapping at Avery. The appearance is a very dark brown, with a thick foamy cream colored head. The aroma is of mint chocolate ice cream, very sweet. The taste is very sweet too, chocolate with a mint finish. Medium body with a semi dry finish. Overall a very sweet stout, but good.
