Very good stout. Great chocolate and mint aroma, as well as taste. Palate is a little weak for the style. Will get again.

Tap: Pitch black with a frothy & creamy espresso colored head that sinks down to a fine skin in moments. Aroma of York Peppermint Patty. Rounds of dark fudgy chocolate & mild peppermint roll across the nostrils, softened by a nice undercut of roasted malts. Mint comes off as semisweet & candy-like, rather than harsh & medicinal. Not much coffee on the nose, however coffee beans are the first thing I taste when I take a sip. Heavy coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, sweet mint. Really nice balance. Body is a little thinner than I’d like. Nice stout overall, though. I like how the mint never traverses into menthol territory.

Smells like an Andes mint, looks great, tastes the same as the smell with hints of coffee and roast. Great beer. I have never had an odd side brew before, but if this is any indication, I will be trying them much more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

djd07 (4921) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle at Black Sunday. Pours a dark brown with small beige head. The aroma is chocolate, faint mint, roasted malt. Medium mouth with mint, cocoa, nice roast, very good.

b3shine (6155) - Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle to half-pint glass. Looks good; a slightly translucent very dark cola with fizzy beige lacing. Smells of dark malt, chocolate, and coffee. Tastes like it smells with a nice, pleasant mint presence. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied. Good stuff.

bigtaster (686) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2015
From a bottle into a tasting snifter. Pours black with only traces of a brown head around the sides. Nose is a burst of chocolate, mint, and espresso. Body is medium oily, well balanced with slightly sweet finish, mint and coco flavors linger on the tongue. Very little carbonation. Mint is a bit too strong for me here, but is well done.

flatmatt (1198) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours black with a light tan head. Coffee aroma building into sweet chocolate syrup, then mint. Rather sweet milk chocolate mint flavor, some cocoa bitterness and roast coffee. A bit like chocolate milk. Tasty, but a little weird.

Sammy (9198) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle from Champane Cellars. Great minty smell, only a minute of coffee roasting chocolate. Looks good. Not as good tasting however, mouthful under average.

12 oz. bottle thanks to fishmich. Thanks for the opportunity! Pitch black color with a thin ring of white head, light spider web lacing. Aroma reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream. Mint is mellow with a underlying chocolate malt aroma. Flavor again reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream. Mouthfeel is more porter light rather than stout, on the lighter side. Subtle mint and chocolate that comes off nice and subtle. Pretty interesting stout and worth a try for sure.

Pours black. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, and mint. Taste is similar to aroma but with some chocolate as well. The mint flavor is mild and works well in this beer.
