Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Matt. Thanks man! Pour is pitch black with a small brown head and sticky lacing. Big minty aroma - spearmint, cocoa, some vanilla, bourbon, toffee, and caramel in the aroma. Taste is big dark chocolate, minty, botanical, coffee, somewhat nutty, earthy, and spearmint with a roasted finish. Thick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Pretty good, but a ton of mint that overpowers the majority of the beer.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, big thanks to Matt for the pour! Thick black pour with tan head, dissipating quickly, aroma brought notes of oak, cocoa, roast, whiskey, slight dark fruit, lots of spice. Taste was a mix of big dark chocolate, coffee, roast, nice whiskey, rye, nice oak, hints of earth, more mint, herbal notes, finishing fairly herbal, slightly sweet. Well done, but I think I like the regular better.

Damico (3003) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Pours thick unclear black rich coffee with a beautiful dark cocoa head. Aroma brings some smokiness balanced with not so sweet mint and then rich chocolatey notes so nice. Flavor of an Andes mint, nice balanced chocolatey and subtle mint that has faded nicely over a few years. The barrel has called down nicely but is still great bring there with vanilla notes right where it needs to be with the mint and chocolate.

BiiruBierBeer (738) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Awesome mostly minty smell. Taste is very mint chocolate. Just awesome. Easily the best mint chocolate stout I’ve had so far. Low carbonation with a thicker but not quite oily body.

markextrae (2512) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2014
bottle in a trade. shared with 2 friends. poured a pitch black colour leaving a small mocha coloured ring on top. smell of after eight chocolate! mint leaves dipped in chocolate and whisky! still a lot of mint in the smell and taste but not overwelming! oak, vanilla coffee, roasted malts, spice of the whiskey barrel,rye, chocolate chip cookie, bit of a spiced mint flavor of the barrel. this is one unique stout! refreshing mint, it is really complex and blended perfect together with the stout/vanilla and whiskey barrel. it’s something you need to share! nice sipper!
