Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours an opaque black with a light brown head. Heavy chocolate and mint in the nose. Rich body, massive bitter dark chocolate with great mint accents and a bitter finish. The closest you can possibly get to After Eight in a bottle! 220413

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.

rlgk (12838) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle at "Darkness comes to town", 131116. Black beer with a nice beige head. Mint aroma, roasted, caramel, chocolate, toffee, cookies. Mint flavor, chocolate, cocoa. Too much mint. It kinda kills the rest of the beer.

brokensail (12508) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 2, 2012
Black in color with a finger of khaki head. Pretty nice mint aroma. Decent chocolate, sort of a Hershey syrup sort of character, some sugar, licorice, and plenty of roasted malt. Lots of mint flavor, heavy on the roasted malt, some cocoa powder, and molasses. Dark chocolate, slight sugary sweetness, and a lasting herbal mint note on the finish.

bhensonb (12149) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours black with a dark tan head. Aroma is definitely mint. Full bodied. Flavor is very chocolate and very minty. Like the girl scout cookie. Very nice. Quite interesting.

Bottle share at Willis’s flat post Pig’s Ear - cheers to the big man himself, 05/12/12. I’ve written down (at the end of a boozy doo) Opaque mid black! Black - opaque, really ! Accompanied by a thin dirty coffee head up above thats swims to the edge and leaves a pond. Nose is dark malts, bitter dark chocolate, mint choc chip ice cream. Taste follows, bit of a one trick pony in this respect, light wood in the taste, molasses, booze, mint choc chip. Full bodied with soft carbonation, boozey warming finish. Ok but a bit of a curious number throwing mint and shit in ! Certainly one of my lower rated Impy Stouts and one I’d probably not bother revisiting (Doh - I have a bottle in my stash ... trade trade trade)

bu11zeye (12112) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2013
(12oz bottle) Pours an opaque black body with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, mint, caramel, toffee, and graham cracker. Flavor of chocolate, mint, roasted malt, and light vanilla. Very much like liquid Girl Stout Thin Mint cookies.
