Shared with JLindros. Poured into a Kate the Great a neon aquamarine. Smells like mint, cocoa nibs, little vanilla. Really aromatic. Taste is almost artificially minty, cocoa nibs, more white chocolate than regular chocolate. rather mouth wash like, practically unbearably so. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. This was a struggle.

Bottle: 2012 release, 187ml nip. Plasma green color, not a goddamn bubble in sight. Smells like mint chocolate chip cookie dough with a finish of York peppermint patty. Seriously delicious. Not overly minty or spicy as many other reviewers state. Tastes like a McDonalds Shamrock Shake, only with a mild, underlying cocoa dust aspect. Again, think York, but sweeter with some honey in the periphery. Minty sweet, dessert cookie finish. Not sure why the reviews are generally so shitty, this mead was crazy delicious. One of the best Iíve had from Kuhnhenn, actually.

JaBier (5652) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Bottle shared by a friend. Green pour with no head and minimal legs. Aroma of mint, vanilla and slight chocolate. Minty flavor with a hint of chocolate and vanilla before a thin, dry finish. Not bad, but I was hoping it would be more robust in flavor and sweeter. A little more chocolate would have been nice too.

2013 bottle shared with family on Christmas day. Pours blue-green color, still. Looks exactly like mouthwash. Kinda smells like mouthwash too. Very minty aroma with just a hint of chocolate. Taste is the same. So much mint that it even seems to cover up the honey taste. I could barely drink it. A couple family members surprisingly liked it though.

Scope blue/green pour. And it smells and tastes like scope. I couldnít finish my glass. Weird and overly minty.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle from Rayl101! Pours like scope and has an aroma similar to it. Taste is minty with little chocolate. An unusual fail from the team at Kuhnhenn.

Green scope pour, no head. There is mint and faint chocolate. But this is a scope mess. An uncommon weak mead for this brewery.

Dogbrick (9661) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2013
2012 bottle. This Mead pours a clear green color that reminds me of Haas Easter egg coloring. Decent legs on the glass. Minty aroma with touches of chocolate. Full-bodied with flavors of mint and chocolate plus honey in the background. The finish is earthy mint in subtle chocolate. Overall pretty good but didnít quite achieve the Andes mint flavor for which I was secretly hoping.

madvike (3105) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle from BenC...thanks Ben! - Pours clear pale green with no head. Nose is mint chocolate chip ice cream with some almond extract. Yep, this is truth in advertising. Taste is about the same, with lots of mint and a touch of chocolate. Menthol on the finish. Thin and slick. Good stuff!

mcberko (9753) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2012 6.3 oz. bottle, sent from northernbrews (thanks a lot, Jeff), pours a crystal clear lime cordial green with no head, not even a few bubbles. Nose reminds me of absinthe at first, quite boozy, with notes of both mint and chocolate chips, and a bit of honey is with all meads. Flavour brings out the mint on top of the chocolate chips, melding together quite cohesively, with the honey holding it together. Iím not usually a fan of the mint chocolate combination, but this mead succeeds with it. Booze is hidden very well, leaving only a slight burn. Decent stuff.
