3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

12 oz bottle pous a dark brown/black with a tan head that sticks around. Aroma and flavor completely dominated by mint. Actually smells almost identical to a Girl Scout Thin Mint. A mostly slow-sipper with hints of chocolate coming through past the mint. Pretty nice.

Disgusting. Poured a pretty black with minimal head. Nose was faint, but instantly in the mouth it was just horrible. Try second sip and then it was to the drain. The mint was just a huge turnoff for me.
