Brown, tan head. Nose is wild mint and rich milk chocolate. Taste is the same, with the mint very up front but never overpowering. Brown sugar, well water, and other characteristics typical of dark Belgian ales complement this chocolate mint-forward beer well. Medium, creamy mouthfeel. A very unique take on a strong Belgian ale. I don’t typically like mint anything, but this is just so incredibly well done that it took little time for me to appreciate the quality of this beer.

On tap at the Funky Buddha. So stoked for this to be number 1200. Brown pour with an off white head. The nose is unbelievable, straight Andes Mint. Smooth and rich with all kinds of delicious mint, chocolate and caramel highlights. A hint of cola with a desert like finish, butterscotch?? Awesome mouthfeel, good body and carbonation. The high ABV is not apparent at all. Another gem from my boys at the Funky B.....

Poured a dark brown color with a khaki head at the Funky Buddha. Aromas of fresh mint, licorice, and chocolate. Flavor is much the same with the mint and chocolate playing off of each other. After each sip i notice more of the earth mint flavors with a touch of licorice on the backside. Real nice christmas beer, and the 9.4% abv is hardly noticable, this is a dangerously delicious beer. Pours dark brown (nearly black) with a small, creamy, khaki head. The aroma is absolutely amazing. It’s all about freshly crushed wild mint – hand picked and pungent – not like a stick of Wrigley’s gum or an After Eight thin mint. Nice chocolate nuance as well, although it takes a back seat to the wonderful wild mint component. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with moderate carbonation. The flavor offers loads of dark chocolate and freshly crushed mint picked right out of my childhood backyard in Overland Park, Kansas. Leans bitter. The high abv is not at all apparent. Finishes bittersweet and so very minty and chocolaty. I’ve tried at least a couple chocolate mint porters and such in the past, but none of those resemble this beauty

On draft at the Buddha for their special Thursday night releases. Dark brown color, murky and cloudy. Nice aroma of fresh mint and soft dark chocolate. Flavor is a mix between the mint, chocolate and slight roasted almonds. Very tasty to say the least. The ABV is masked especially well here. Great job!
