Thick tan head. Rather fluffy. Definitely pick up the cocoa in the aroma. Surprisingly not much of the mint carries through. Flavor reminds me of a cross between an IPA and a Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie!! Body is not overly thick. Interesting collaboration!

12 ounce bottle. Opague black color topped by a thick creamy tan head. Rich roasted malt aroma hints at bittersweet bakers chocolate and tobacco. Flavor of roasted malt, cocoa, espresso and subtle mint. Finish is bitter and roasty. The mint has long since disappeared. Overall, a unique take on an imperial stout.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Pours very dark, opaque brown with a finger of rocky brown head. Dissipates quickly with some lacing. Aroma is roasted, smokey with tones of chocolate and alcohol. Taste it sweet malt, chocolate/cocoa, and mild tobacco up front, bitter/dark chocolate afterwards. Mint flavor does not seem particularly pronounced. Mild to moderate carbonation with a big body and a relatively smooth mouthfeel. The mint is present more in the mouthfeel than the flavor. Can definitely sense the warming effect of the high ABV, but you don’t really taste it. A very interesting and rich imperial stout.

Bottle. Pours out an attractive black color with a big, dark tan head. Aroma is of an Andes candy/ York peppermint patty; solid chocolate to mint ratio. Taste is about the same, just a really nice blend of mint and. Rich chocolate, nothing overpowering, just in nice balance. Some light roasts notes and even some bitterness creep in there in the background. This beer is awesome! Been saying for years someone needed to make a mint chocolate stout, and man did they hit a home run with this.

hopdog (11501) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2012
12oz bottle. Poured black with a large sized tan head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, and some mint. Tastes of mint, chocolate, roast, cookie dough, and vanilla.

RedSox2004 (1665) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Ink black with a dense medium brown two-finger head, good retention and wonderful web-like lace. Mint-forward aroma, with strong milk chocolate right behind. Mint overwhelms the coffee and chocolate flavors, with a hint of hops bitterness toward the end. Full body, minimal carbonation, silky smooth texture, and an overpowering minty finish. Too much.

after4ever (7577) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 16, 2012
12-oz. Pours jet black with a dense and creamy dark tan mousse. Rings of light lace. Big beautiful rich chocolate mint nose with roasty undertones. Creamy thick body with soft carb. Roasty dark chocolate mid palate with a beautifully integrated slight accent of mint. Long chocolatey finish.

reggiedunlop (3657) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Pours black with a huge mocha head...nice retention and lacing. Aroma has notable mint and chocolate...a bit like thin mints or peppermint patties. Flavor has bold roastiness, dark chocolate, and mint...a bit of a stale note of some sort. Mouthfeel is medium/full and creamy with a minty/roasty finish.

Bottle. Very dark, tan head. Smells roasty, slightly minty. Tastes smoky, thick, creamy, nice mint, roasty bitter finish. Pretty tasty.

Thanks Lance! Black pour with a small tan head that laces. Aroma exactly of an Andes mint, sweet chocolate, fresh spearmint, roasted malts and touches of earthiness. Flavor follows suite with pronounced mint, but not overbearing or fake, cocoa and roasted malts. Creamy mouthfeel with a bitter finish. Damn good beer.
