Wow this really impressed me. It was like drinking a Thin Mint cookie in a bottle but in a good way. The mint was not overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a good one. I'm a huge fan of mint chocolate stuff, so this was right up my alley. Slightly disappointed, but this is still solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ Chadís house via trade with drsilverworm. Thanks! Missed out on this when it came to Colorado, so Iím excited to finally try it. Pours a sweep black appearance with a creamy brown head. Mint fudge, a bit piney, thick dark cocoa aroma. Creamy, pretty thick, chocolate mint fudge, gooey brownie dessert flavor., Iím surprised this isnít a smash hit. Tasty stuff.

Bottle. Dark brown with a thin sudsy tan head and a reddish hue. First couple sniffs I get lots of clean green mint and begin to pick up a more mint chocolate note as the beer breathes and warms a bit. Buttery toffee rounds out the nose. Flavor is okay. Not as well integrated as the nose, at least at this point. Slightly astringent at first with a very vegetal-y green middle and more bitterness interspersed with sugar pockets. I was kind of afraid of this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice brown head, lasting with good lace. Black in appearance. Nose of grains, roast and mint. Body is full, oily with a gentle carboantion. Sweet, minty flavors. Light roasty notes, hint of coffee and chocolate. Lil too much peppermint patty action for me. Different and interesting. Drinkability is low. Lightly sweet, yorky finish. Meh.

TheHOFF43 (1771) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a little creamy tan head. Aroma is boozy mint chocolate. Flavor is like mint chocolate chip ice cream mixed with liquor. Definitely interesting.

Darkly roasted coffee layers atop a chocolatey mint base. Tons of bittersweet chocolate. Reminiscent of mint chocolate chip ice cream in liquid form. I really like this brew.

Mint, chocolate, oatmeal, Imperial Stout. Beer bliss. 9.6% alcohol. Original recipe was made by a San Diego guy named Ken Schmidt. Stone Brew Co. was assisted by some guy from Iron Fist Brew Co. in making this beer as well. They suggest letting it sit in the cellar for a few years before drinking. I donít have a cellar, so Iím drinking it now. And even if I did have a cellar, I would still be drinking it now. The mint flavor is overwhelming. The Imperial Stout body is exceptional. This beer is really bad-ass.
