COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with Dutch process Cocoa and dry-hopped with 5 lbs of peppermint leaves this porter is sure to impress. While the peppermint leaves lend a light spicy bitterness the dutch process cocoa adds hints of velvety chocolate. The perfect balance of mint, chocolate, and beer.

Pours a rich, dark chocolate brown with a fairly thick light tan head. Roast malty porter has a decided overtone of mint and more than a hint of chocolate, demanding a taste. Flavor has a core of roast malt and strong mint, semi-sweet chocolate, and woody hop notes. Hop bitterness and chocolaty/mint sweetness balance each other quite well, though the latter seems a little stronger. Velvety smooth texture has some good fizz and leaves a chocolate mint and hoppy finish. Choc up another win to Fort Collins - I mint to say that.

Growler shared at Dmacís. Pours a moderate cola-brown color with a small white head. Aroma is of lots of mint extract, some light chocolate, mild sweetness and a little bit of roast. Taste is like a liquid thin mint cookie, chocolate, a solid dose of mint extract, light sweetness, mild roast and a touch of bitterness. Body is a little thinner than Iíd like it, but this was pretty solid.

Growler from Spirits Middletown. Poured a solid black body under a large foamy super light beige head. Aroma is like an alcoholic girl scout cookie, light roastiness, dark toast, mint, old milk. The mouthfeel is a bit thin. Body is a bit thin, softer carbonation and a lingering aftertaste that crosses from mint sweetness to roasty dark malts. Flavor of burnt dark toast, coffee grounds, mint, chocolate. Solid beer but needs more body.

Tap @ Steakout Saloon in Fort Collins. I swear they advertised this as "Chocolate Mint Stout" at the bar, but maybe Iím mistaken (or maybe they were). Pours a deep black appearance with a moderately sized, creamy brown head. Aroma has a fair amount of mint, chocolate, roasted malts, and a touch of vanilla. The flavor tastes like a Thin Mint, though the mint seemed to be a bit overboard in my opinion. There was a fairly herbal, bitter bite on the finish that I also didnít particularly care for. Overall, it wasnít a hard beer to drink and certainly a strong offering for Fort Collins Brewery.
