katrinaez (1054) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Really nice. Perfect balance of peppermint scent and flavor. Nice cocoa and a tiny coffee ending. More other flavor than coffee. Nicely done though. Not overly sweet like an ice cream. Bottle

hopscotch (10522) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Bottle... Pours black with a short-lived head. The nose is of creamy chocolate and mint, an After Eight Mint Chocolate Thin unfolds as it warms. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with modest carbonation. The flavor offers a mélange of milk chocolate, vanilla and mint, but it’s a touch thin. Finishes toasty with a chocolaty aftertaste. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!

arminjewell (9207) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 14, 2015
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of big mint, cocoa, thin mint, some brownie, hints of coffee, roast. Taste was a mix of chocolate, coffee, slight roast into cookie, mint, finishing slightly sweet. Very well done.

Pinball (11788) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2015
vintage bottle a few years old. No gusher, but some volcano activity after openend, so a sneaky volcano beer. aroma is bone dry coffe and roasted malts, bitter toffee, bitter nuts. dark chocolate. harbal bitter mint notes too. flavor is roasted malts, faint citrussy note (could be connected to the volcanic gushing) very dry and very straight bitter malty. somewhat watery but then it’s only 6%. Not sure it was a good idea to age this one, but it is a fine dry stout, the mint is only used as a discreete spice, it does not ruin the already pretty solid dry stout flavor.
