A very dark beer, almost black. It has a lot going on in each mouthful, and at times can be a little overwhelming. It has the chocolate and mint flavors that it is supposed to have, but finishes with just a hint of coffee flavoring to it. A good beer, but I couldn’t have more than one at a time.

355ml bottle into a shaker glass; served cold. Aroma: So much chocolate. It is like a glass full of cold melted chocolate. Glorious. Appearance: Opaque, dark brown body. Even with an aggressive pour, the head is small and dissipates completely very quickly. Taste: A little chocolate at first, but then it’s all dark roast coffee and dark roasted malt and dark. Palate: Medium-full body with lots of prickly carbonation. Moderate-long finish and ends on bitter chocolate. Overall: Great stuff! Nice and straightforward, but doesn’t skimp on flavor.

Good stout. Very good in fact. Smooth, with a hint if roastiness. Thick but not crazily so. Hides its ABV exceedingly well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

alexanderj (3320) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle; poured a very dark brown or black. Brownish head. Aroma of chocolate, wood, earth and mint. Quite roasty, some chocolate, some spice/mint, a touch dry with some woody notes. Lingering finish. Solid.

12oz bottle from Frys. Coal black with a brown head. Smells faintly of chocolate but not much from the aroma considering what's next. Incredibly heavy beer and every bit of it sweet. Almost like a mouthful of chocolate ice cream. It's quite good for a desert beer. While chocolate beers are not my thing, this one is probably the best ice ever tried. Sweet and thick enough you could almost dip cookies in it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Growler pours with a mahogany colored body that supports a tan colored head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, cream soda notes and a bit of burnt malts. The taste starts with some dark roasted malts moving into a sweet cream soda sensation and then ending with smooth subtle mint notes. Pretty nice but nowhere near as tasty as the version from Stone.

Tap at Papago. Deep brown pour with a lasting chocolate brown head. Mint fudge brownies with a hint of roast on the nose. Fudge, brownie batter and Andes mints. Not overly sweet, not too much roast or mint. Really a helluva good mint stout. Better than the stone version.
