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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but was released in bottles recently. Pours completely pitch black color with a nice dense 2 finger very dark tan head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, mint leaves, toast, light char, light coffee, and light herbal hops. Very nice aromas with good balance, strength, and complexity of dark roasted notes with moderate mint presence. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, mint leaves, roasted malt, light coffee, light char, toast, herbal, and light roasted earthiness. Lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, mint, roasted malt, toast, coffee, light char, herbal, and light roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of dark roasted flavors with moderate mint; with zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice stout! Nice amount of robustness and balance of roasted flavors with moderate mint flavor; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours dark with little head. That aroma is mostly malt, but a subtle minty-ness comes through. Very inviting smell and similar to a thin mint. The taste is a little thin. I do get some mint toothpaste taste, which is a bit of a turnoff.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate and cigarettes. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights and a small beige head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate. The finish is very ashy and cigarette-y. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, too much like cigarettes and ash.
