Slipstream (1932) - USA - DEC 26, 2012
On draft at Caponeís. Another classic Stone collaborative release! Lots of mint flavor, along with some cocoa. It wasnít as sweet as I expected it would be.

Braudog (5489) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours with the mighty visuals anyone would want from an imperial stout ... towering with tan foam you could put a footprint in. The head wonít let much of any odor from below; on the first sip I get full-on, thick bakerís chocolate. Canít say I detect mint per se, but there is a stark knife-edge of bitterness at the end, but itís more along the lines of what you get eating pure cocoa. (#4862, 12/20/2012)

Theydon_Bois (6994) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle share at Willisís flat post Pigís Ear - cheers to the big man himself, 05/12/12. Iíve written down (at the end of a boozy doo) Opaque mid black! Black - opaque, really ! Accompanied by a thin dirty coffee head up above thats swims to the edge and leaves a pond. Nose is dark malts, bitter dark chocolate, mint choc chip ice cream. Taste follows, bit of a one trick pony in this respect, light wood in the taste, molasses, booze, mint choc chip. Full bodied with soft carbonation, boozey warming finish. Ok but a bit of a curious number throwing mint and shit in ! Certainly one of my lower rated Impy Stouts and one Iíd probably not bother revisiting (Doh - I have a bottle in my stash ... trade trade trade)

daknole (8540) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Almost black with a brown head. Lots of mint,roast and some milk chocolate. Flavor is mint, cocoa and roast. Just a touch too much bitterness. But solid.

msante79 (2209) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Bottle I picked up in NY. Pours near black with thick dark tan head. Nice looking stout. Aromas of roasted malts, mint, chocolate, and light coffee. Flavor was amazing with loads of mint, chocolate, some roast, and very light coffee. Tasted just like a Meltaway. This was the first mint chocolate stout that was not a mess or had some type of fake menthol flavor. This is an awesome beer.

thome50 (887) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Bottle. Only opened because a bottle I was going to throw in a trade box decided to open. (Better than opening in the box with Fedex!) Pours a deep brown/black with tan, khaki head that is about 1/4". Aroma is malty, chocolate. Taste is bitter chocolate, coffee grounds and a slight mint candy flavor. Overall, not my thing but all this seems to work well together.

bleeng (1474) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours black with a rich looking tan head. Nose of maltiness, superb mint and chocolate-just like the label. Starts off rich chocolate and minty candy, very rich and smooth and fluffy. Flavors hang around. 12oz is enough though.

Jriggz7 (117) - Indiana, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Black opaque body with thick creme tan head. Nose of Andes mint chocolates. Smooth chocolate notes upfront then roasty, mint finish. Mouth feel creamy. Tasty stout.

magsinva (846) - Virginia, USA - DEC 12, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2012 Bottle from Wegmans Leesburg - pours pitched with a finger of dark chocolate head. Aroma has notes of alcohol, chocolate, pine, and malt. Iím not getting a lot of mint, though. Taste is a hint bitter with a smokey toasty finish. The bitterness from the hops becomes more prominent as you make your way through the glass. Palate is thick on the initial attack and then fades into lingering dryness. Overall, a great Complex dry stout! Updated, added missing numerical score... Details...

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Bottle from Caponeís. Pours jet black with minimal tan head that laces well. Nose is mint, cacao, dark choc, hops. Tastes smooth and velvety, with roasty choc malt, a big mint flavor, cacao, lactose, and an overall flavor profile that is like a slightly less sweet Andes mint, but with more piney hoppy flavor. Finishes smooth and complex, and is a great stout.
