misrahi (31) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Poured from bottle. Pours bear black with dark cream colored head. Aroma is of mint leaves and cocoa nibs. Mouthful is heavy bodied. Taste is suprisingly minty, with the roasted and chocolate noted rounding out the finish. The mint was more present than expected, but all in all another solid collab brew.

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods Washington P Street. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. The mint really comes through on the nose as it warms. Bitter chocolate on the tongue with the mint coming through on the finish. Hides its alcohol well. Solid but not as spectacular as I was hoping.

TXBadger (1214) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 26, 2014
Pours a nice black color. Mint, chocolate, roasted malt, and a bit of caramel sweetness on the nose; all follow onto the palate. As it warms, the mint really comes through and it’s like drinking a thin mint cookie. Very good if you like mint flavor, which I do.

BoostIPA (1181) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - APR 16, 2014
12oz bottle as a trade extra. Pours a jet black with a small white head. Aromas of mint and chocolate, duh. Taste is semi sweet and slightly bitter. Flavors of mint, chocolate, roast, some coffee. Very thick mouthfeel. Impressive,actually. Finishes pretty sticky and sweet with boat loads of mint. Pretty decent.

vtafro (2784) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle. Black pour with tan head. Roasted, chocolate, mint aromas. Flavor is chocolate, roasted and malt, one of the better mint chocolate beers I’ve had.

Paincane (127) - Georgia, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Very dark brown body with thick khaki head. Nice lacing. Minty, dark chocolate & roast malt aromas. Bittersweet dark chocolate, mint flavors remind me of a hotel pillow mint. Excellent.

SamP01 (537) - New Jersey, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Purchased 2012. Pours a deep black with a razor thin tan head. Has a rich chocolate dark roasted caramel malt nose, with some dark fruity notes and slight licorice sweet bitter flavor on the end. The palate is a full rich creamy body with good carbonation, a bit of sticky mouth feel. The finish is sweet chocolate, roasted caramel malt, some mild mint flavor shows up as it warms up, has a lingering kind of sweet chocolate roasted bitterness on the end. Was expecting a bit more mint but could be the aging. Overall a good drinking tasty and full flavored brew.

Very black, not quite as much mint as I expected, plenty of chocolate though.

12oz bottle, served in a snifter glass. One of my favourite of the Stone collaboration beers.

(Backlog) On tap. The look is black in color, dark, and has a tan head. The smell is minty, chocolate, cookies, alcohol, roast, and raisins. The taste is sweet, artificial, minty, and eh.

12oz bottle courtesy of DrSilverworm. Thanks! Deep black body, rusty beige head that fades out a little, but still laces the glass quite well. Really pleasant aroma, doughy cocoa chocolate. The mint is there but it is pretty easy going, which is quite refreshing, to see a new uniquely flavored beer come out and not go overboard with the ingredient showcased. The mint chocolate really works here..quite balanced. Quite a fantastic beer. Quality ingredients fully utilized, expertly brewed. The alcohol is perfectly masked or incorporated...this goes down quite easy....but it is bold enough that you know it is big.
