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).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour on tap at the brewery is dark black with thin off white to almost white head, aroma brought big peppermint notes, some roasted dark chocolate and espresso, hints of other roasted malt as well, slight cookie/bread note as well. Taste reminded me of a thin mint, sweet sugary bread and chocolate notes with a big mint and chocolate note, very slight coffee note, finishes fairly sweet. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Novelty act. Mint aroma is overwhelming as in you can smell it from several feet away. Worth a sip or two, but only application I see for this would MAYBE be over some vanilla ice cream in a float. Not that the flavors are anathema to the Out of Bounds Stout base, but I don’t know what the point of this beer is, as in why anyone would want to drink more than a sip or two and say...’huh, yeah that is what I was afraid it would taste like.’
