Opaque black beer, big pale tan head. Palate is smooth and soft and a little dry. Rich dark malts, touch of roast. Unsweet dark chocolate. Slightly bitter dark malt note. The mint is well judged and provides a counterpoint for the robust malt. Finishes dry with more dark malt roast, bitterness and coffee. Different.

12oz bottle. Whoa, super mint chocolatey. Like a high quality mint chocolate bar. Not sweet, roasty, and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from my secret santa. Thank you joeneugs! Pours pitch black with a dark chocolate brown head that is prettyy quick to dissipate while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is slightly sweet and malty with heavily roasted malts, after eight (mint chocolate), dark roast coffee, caramel, cocoa powder, bitter chocolate, peppermint oil, liquorice fudge, charred wood and dark chocolate brownies. Taste is sweet, heavy bitter and malty with heavily roasted malts, high quality dark chocolate, after dinner mints, moist soil, charred wood, liquorice fudge, caramel, burnt cookies, bitter chocolate, dark roast coffee, resin, alcohol and cocoa powder. Mouthfeel is slightly round, slightly bitter astringent, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is bitter and malty with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, bitter chocolate, after eight (mint chocolate), charred wood, caramel, toffee, dark chocolate brownies, chocolate chip cookies, resin, fudge and subtle hints of citrus zest. Nice but a bit over the top with the heavy bitter roast.

12oz bottle .. age seems to have calmed this down nicely .. . pours a deep brown .. mild foam, lacing spots were good .. . mild mint, tar, and deepened grains .. . light mouth, slick finish .. . . Is it called NASCAR because that’s the way a hillbilly pronounces "nice car?"

On tap at Aces and Ales Stone Domination. Chocolate and mint are the toast of this big stout. Mint is an excellent finish for the palate and a great combination for the stout.

Thanks to Hunter or Glenn for the share at Berliner Bash, poured a blaxk color with aromas of light earth, chocolate and mint. Flavors were mint and chocolate, sort of a light version of a thin mint not ocerly minty or overly chocolaty, a solid beer. Thanks for sharing this one.

Bottle. This was an interesting beer. I am not much of a fan of mint but i wanted to try it. Black pour with an awesome mint smell to it. Sweet chocolate taste with a cooling mint finish. Too bad it does not taste as good as it smells..

deyholla (9997) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours black with a brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has kind of a thin mint cookie note with sweet chocolate and a good amount of mint. Flavor has bitter chocolate throughout with a touch of roasted malts and a growing mint note through the finish.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Ariel. Black opaque with dark tan head. Mint chocolate like After-Eight and a little burning aroma. Tastes very chocolatey, minty and fun. Full-bodied, smooth, mild carbonation and chocolate finish.
