markwise (5011) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2016
Bottle courtesy of the Tampa Tasting Crew. Cheers, guys! Pours a deep stout brown with a tan head. Nose is some roast, some sweet mint, spearmint, and some chocolate. Flavor is similar with roast, sweet mint, chocolate, and some earthy bitterness. Medium in body and one to ponder.

Smells like mint chocolate.. no complaints here. Looks great as well. The taste is kind of funky... like York’s Peppermint Patty and spearmint. Don’t like it very much.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Pitch black and opaque with a one finger light beige had that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Sporadic spotty lacing left behind. Robust dark malt aroma with a fresh mint leaf presence along with lighter malt sweetness. Mint smells organic/real yet doesn’t overpower the stout notes. Nicely integrated into hints of coffee bean, burnt toast and oatmeal. As it warms, sweeter desert-like notes come though with bakers chocolate, fudge, etc. decent but could use a bit more of a sweeter malt presence. Lighter end of medium body wih strong charred oak and acrid/burnt malt notes followed by subtle minty sweetness. The mint comes through the most in the finish which is somewhat refreshing but the oak and burnt malts nearly overpower everything. Heavy roast with burnt coffee grinds, oatmeal, charred toast, ash and bitter dark chocolate. Sweeter notes found in the aroma are overpowered and barely noticeable. After it warms and the palate adjust, they start to show up a bit but this beer is severely lacking in balance. Event the fresh mint flavor is kind of weak. Disappointing.

Benzai (11843) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Countbeer. Opaque pitch black color, average sized brown head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma is horrible: mint, toothpaste. Taste malts, toothpaste, mint, earthy. Some might like this, but I find it absolutely disgusting. Horrible, undrinkable.

mcberko (11200) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 25, 2015
750mL bottle, pours a jet black like motor oil with a small dark brown head. Nose brings out loads of mint, some chocolate and roast. Flavour is intense as hell, with roasted malt, loads of mint, and chocolate. Not usually a fan of mint in stouts, but this works really. Palate is thick as fuck - good for small doses. Excellent.
