Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thick black pour with nice tan head that lasts well, aroma brings notes of...thin mint. Literally. Some notes of chocolate, cookie, some nice mint, hints of coffee, slight earth, more mint and chocolate note, but this aroma is ridiculously like a thin mint. Taste is way better than I thought it would be, nice chocolate, rich with dark cocoa, mint, some nice cocoa nibs, almost a hershey bar type phenomenon with a cookie, mint background, finishing with fairly sweet, slightly dry. This is pretty damn impressive, and the best version of this style I’ve had by far.

jhamp9 (1683) - Corinth, Texas, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Black with a super dense khaki head. Great lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate, mint, and coffee. Taste is dark chocolate, caramel and mint. The mint starts off herbacious but becomes a more traditional mint flavor as it warms up. Tastes like thin mint cookie all together. Not too thick on the palate but silky. Very good.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Dark black pour, not super thick or oily. I thought the mint would be subtle and sort of "off in the back" but it’s more in your face then I thought. Flavor is a mix between bitter chocolate and fudge. Overall very good!

RamyG4 (324) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle. Pitch black with a medium brown head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, mint, some coffee, and hops surprisingly, Taste is heavy sweet, mild-medium bitter, with more coffee and mint chocolate. Finish is bitter, hoppy, with a little cool mint. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Too hoppy for an imperial stout.

12 oz bottle I lucked into at Spirits Crossroads. Poured a pitch black body of medium to slightly thicker density and one of the most amazing super dense foamy heads I have ever seen, three fingers high and lasting the entire time. The head alone is worthy of a seperate rating of 5. Aroma is like an alcoholic Girl Scout thin mint cookie, chocolate syrup, mint, roastiness, cookie. Medium/full body with softer carbonation and a slight touch of warmth. The flavor matches the aroma but bumps up on the roastiness quite a bit and the cookie flavor becomes more of a burnt toast, with mint...so maybe a bit different after all. Really great beer, wish I had a bowl of ice cream to go along with this, or better a scoop of vanilla or two and a bottle of this might make the absolute best milk shake ever.

Black, finger of mocha, dark tan head. Chocolate, roast, carmel malts. Mint keeps the aroma so sweet and pleasant. Mint right up front followed by the malts that are in the aroma. The chocolate that is added is there and good. A little vanilla notes on the back end. A little bitterness and dry finish rounds this beer off nicely. Overall very good! Cheers.

Consumed on International Stout Day 2012. Pours black with tan head. Aromas of roasted malts, mint, chocolate and some alcohol. Burnt malt flavor with bitter chocolate and a hint of mint. Full body with minimal carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel.
