3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours black with a medium sized creamy tan head. The aroma is very nice with chocolate, mint, roast and everything that goes into a great stout. Mint can sometimes be overpowering in these beers, but I thought this was well balanced with everything else. The flavor again shows great balance between the chocolate, roast and mint, especially once it warmed a bit. Some decent bitterness at the back. Very smooth mouth feel and medium plus body. No alcohol to speak of. This is pretty solid and I have a couple to sit on for a bit.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle 9/19/12 (Binnyís Downers Grove)-41į in Snifter-Pours black with a one finger brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, and slight mint. Taste of the same with more chocolate and the mint lingering just a little. This full bodied brew is well balanced as I was expecting the mint to be overpowering but is nicely infused.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
19 oct 2012, bottle. Black, thin. Nose is gorgeous: light charcoal, count chocula cereal, faint mint. Thin body and faintly fizzy. Dark chocolate and mint. Heavy on the chocolate, faint mint, bitter chocolate finish. Very nice and bit too minty or sweet.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from bev4less. Pours midnight black, good foam. Aromas are very faint of some dark malt and mint. Taste is heavy of mint and chocolate, almost like creme de menthe, or a chocolate milkshake. Good, but perhaps a bit cloying. Not much development past the mid palate. Pretty one dimensional, but the one dimension is solid enough and as advertised. Good mouthfeel and solid body, until the finish, which just sort of peters out. Good, not great.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, purchased at the brewery. Hearty near black pour, light brown head that leaves curtains of lace. Aroma is rich sweet cocoa, roast, with a kiss of mint. Sweet and chocolatey, thickly malty, with a leafy mint presence in the mid palate that leaves a nice cooling sensation deepin the throat (in my chest actually!). Roasty bitterness in the finish. This was so freaking GOOD!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Purchased at Binnyís in Chicago, IL; enjoyed on a Tuesday night hanging out at home. This stuff is delicious, happy that I had the chance to get this in Chicago. Appearance is pitch black, moderate thickness, very rich tan rim around the glass. Aroma of dark chocolate malt, definite mint presence, lactose, a hint of vanilla, espresso, oats, smells very fresh. Taste is slightly decadent, thick but also smooth, sweet, minty, roasted malt, a touch of bitterness. Very good stuff.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma brings mint leaves, vanilla and subtle chocolate to the nose. Pitch black in color no foam. Very sweet, minty fresh taste with some strong cocoa flavors. Some very slight molasses and herb sensations take over this palate. The mint is extremely evident. Overall, this is a dessert brew, deserving strongly to be paired with ice cream or a pizookie. Iíd give this an A+ rating.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Completly dark black, small tan head. Aroma is cocoa and a bit of mint. First taste is the chocolate in there and then the mint picks up. Very thick, not much trace of alcohol. Not to much sweetness either. Itís like eating an Andes mint and letting it slowly melt in your mouth. Long aftertaste of mint that stays with you. Really really enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served from a 12 oz bottle from Baronís. The appearance is a coffee brown hue with a huge lacing medium brown head. The aromas have a healthy dose of mint with chocolate, and raw roasted malts. The flavors follow with a mint full mouth with chocolate lacing. The malt backing seems powdering to me not really sure how to say it. Does develop into tasting like a Thin Mint. The alcohol is there but very subtle. It makes you think of a mint liquor or a mint julep. Very enjoyable. Will have to revisit this a few times.
