3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Brian - thanks! Dark black pour with a healthy expresso tan head. Aroma is crumbled thin mint cookes with slight roast, bitter chocolate, and perhaps some hop bitterness through the finish. Taste is mint and minimal roast with chocolate and noticeable hop bitterness. Very clean with a light mouthfeel. Great beer. Very much a lower ABV, thinner take on the Stone collaboration stout with mint.

This is an interesting beer. Dark out of the bottle with a foamy brown head. Milk chocolate and minty/herbal nose. This really does taste like a thin mint cookie. Milk chocolate, fresh mint, some cookie malts. It is getting a little rich as it warms. Very creative beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on 5/30/13 from a 22oz bomber bottle obtained in the Easter Bunny BIF. Pours nearly completely black with a thin brown head that slowly recedes to thin lace. The nose is full of dark chocolate with tons of mint, it actually smells almost exactly like a Thin Mint. The flavor is a little bit more disjointed, with the dark chocolate malt up front and the mint coming through as very herbal and somewhat bitter on the back end. The body is medium with light carbonation and a long chocolate, minty, and nicely bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Pours almost pitch black with a small foamy head that quickly fades away. Aroma is medium roast, chocolate and mint. Taste is like thin mint cookies mixed with light roasted coffee. More bitter than sweet though. Medium body, mouthfeel is a little chalky and foamy. Overall, pretty good and unique. Could be great with a little more chocolate sweetness and a better mouthfeel.

Deuce. Pours a dark brown, near black with slight fizzy head. Mint chocolate in the scent. Taste is minty, with roasted malt, chocolate...a bit dry. Kinda just seems like I drank a beer too soon after brushing my teeth. Different, but just ok.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to pint. Looks good; black with beige lacing. Smells and tastes solid; sweet, malty, and minty. Nice and smooth on the palate too. A good take on the style.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Pours black with a deep tan head. Aroma is exactly as the name and description suggest, mint chocolate cookie, beyond that suggesting licorice, slight roasted coffee. Minty cocoa flavor, slightly medicinal hinting at cherries and licorice. Be nicer with a fuller palate, though.
