Le nez est vraiment spécial, la menthe est présente mais plus on la respire, plus les malts grillés et le chocolat noir s’intensifient. En bouche, le corps est moyen avec une bonne effervescence et le chocolat domine complètement le champs de bataille avec une touche de chlorophylle. Solide!

Draft at capones during black Friday 2012 with Vinny, Alan and Bill. Pours a deep black with thick tan lacing. Aroma is mint chocolate syrup. Mouthfeel is medium to full with notes of rich chocolate, spice, mint and light roast. Awesome in small doses.

Damico (3137) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Pours unclear dark black with a creamy caramel head. Aroma brings sweet chocolate, like Andes mints, so delicious! The flavor brings an excellent balance of light mint and sweet chocolate on a full creamy and almost crisp body. Really enjoyed this overall!

Poured from bottle. Pours bear black with dark cream colored head. Aroma is of mint leaves and cocoa nibs. Mouthful is heavy bodied. Taste is suprisingly minty, with the roasted and chocolate noted rounding out the finish. The mint was more present than expected, but all in all another solid collab brew.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours black with beige head. Aroma is mint and malt. Full bodied, chocolate and roast malt flavour. Long lasting finish. You do not taste the alcohol in this.

12oz bottle $3.99. When I saw Ken Schmidt’s name on this I got excited thinking about that nice coffee macadamia beer from years back but this was not as tasty. Standard stout blackness with a coffee colored head that leaves a good lace and hangs on through the entirety of the glass. Initial aromas are dark chocolate and then later the slightest whiff of mint. The flavor seems mostly chocolate and malt to me with only the slightest touch of mint. It does have a fleeting reminder of that chalkiness you get when you bite into a thin mint but overall it is not quite a girl scout thin mint cookie (shoutout to Mountain Sun) nor an andes chocolate mint. Not bad but I won’t revisit it. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-13-2012 03:48:29

Beautiful, dark stout, and you can definitely taste the mint and chocolate. The malt gives a great dark sweetness to the brew. Overall, a tasty brew to try out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Very impressive! Big and full of flavor and really tastes like mint chocolate. Bitter dry finish hugely satisfying. Hides alcohol way too well. Make more!

Tinco (611) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2012
Pitch black liquid with a nice brown compact one finger head. Aroma is chocolaty, sour coffee, some mint. Taste is roasted, dark chocolate, burnt malts, touch of smoke in there, maybe a slight mint flavour, little salty. Overall a good imerial stout!

Bottle. Black with a creamy light brown head. Earthy mint, vanilla, and dark chocolate aroma. Tastes of chocolate, caramel, mint, and vanilla with a bitter dark chocolate and menthol finish. Oily full bodied palate. Good.
