Brouwerij (915) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 11, 2014 2/11/2014:
Pours brown with fine tan head, minimal lace. Aroma is strong mint, chocolate, and roasted malt. Flavor is mint, chocolate up front, with a toasted, nutty malt finish and mint aftertaste. Mint flavor seems to have been toned down significantly, providing better balance. Moderate carbonation, light body, and mildly cool (mint) finish. Much better than last years.

On tap at Mtn Sun. Pours an opaque brown with a quarter finger of tan/light brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, cocoa, with definite mint in finish. Flavor is strong mint up front fading into caramel, roasted malt, chocolate malt and cocoa flavors. Soft to moderate carbonation, medium body, and slightly cool texture. This beer is too minty for me, completely unbalanced. They should have skipped the peppermint extract or at least used less, a more subtle mint flavor would have been nice. Could probably use slightly stronger/darker stout character as well, A decent beer but I definitely didn’t need a whole pint. Rating: 2.9

Tap. Pours opaque black with thin, creamy tan head; decent retention and spare lacing. Aroma is mint leaves, chocolate malt, vanilla, light figs, and light floral hops. Flavor is balanced mint and chocolate with supporting spicy hops, light ash, and some dark fruit esters; dry, lightly bitter finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2012
On tap at the Vibe Street Pub for stout month, apparently this has mint and cocoa powder. Dark black color, decent head. Smells slightly like chocolate and mint. The taste is spot on thin mint cookies. This really tastes like a mint chocolate cookie stout. Impressive. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 02-28-2011 06:13:25

arminjewell (6100) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Pour on tap at the Vine St location, dark brownish black with off white almost tan head. Aroma brings huge, huge notes of mint, chocolate, and roasted malt, the crackery cookie though also comes through and balances it very well. Taste is literally thin mints in a glass, you have the fresh mint, sweet chocolate and sweet cookie/biscuit, finishing fairly dry. Very well done brew.

TAR (2445) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - APR 4, 2011
Draft at Mountain Sun: Browned ebony. Fizzling, jagged light-beige head. Unattractive nose of metal, earthy roast, potent mint, baker’s chocolate, and raisins. Prickly and watery. Very thin. Sharp and prominently minty and earthy with roast and crackling malt-derived phenolics which clash with the acidic, vaguely defined roast. Malt remains shallow as bittersweet chocolate and dusty cocoa strongly persist. Finishes with notes of plastic, cola, and harsh, raspy malts which continually fizzle and collapse on the palate. Sorely lacks delicacy, the mint is overbearing, has a very nimble malt structure, and is thin/overly roasty, consequently. Not very fun.

SirADNielsen (8949) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 24, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2012 Tap @ Vine Street location. Dark brown black appearance with a small head that completely disintegrates. The nose really does smell like a thin mint! Cocoa and a dominant mint aroma on top of more conventional chocolate malts. Absolutely delicious dessert beer that freshens my breath.

onceblind (3965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Tap at Vine Street. Near black with nice light brown head. Dark bitter chocolate aroma with roast malt, mint, and some molasses. Taste is minty on the start, with roasty smoky malt in the middle, finishing in creamy mint. Not quite as chocolaty as I expected, or as chocolaty as the thin mint it’s supposed to replicate. It’s mostly delightful, but has a certain bitterness that’s unappealing. ***this beer is MIND-BLOWING when paired with the chocolate cake from the menu. After a bite, I took a sip of the beer and it tasted like liquid thin mint. I think this is what the brewers were going for, but it only comes out when chocolate cake is with it. With cake, this beer approaches a perfect 5.0 rating, but, thats not really fair to consider in the normal rating, is it?***

not a mint fan, so take that along with this. tastes just like those damn cookies. pour looks good, solid black and perfect head and carb level. dry to sweet ratio is fine, but good god man if i wanted a cookie i would have bought one. rough 1/2 pint to get through, but prefferred to the cab barrel stuff i had the same night.
