COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Thin mint cookie, meet John Niedermaier A stout made with organic locally-grown whole leaf mint. She’s just back from a stint in the cooler for being too naughty. She might have mellowed out but this stout is still naughty at heart.

Bomber. Pours a nice black, with a good looking dark brown (espresso almost) head that hangs around a finger or so deep. The smell is extraordinarily heavy in mint. There are subtle tones of roast and chocolate, and this thing has so much potential. The taste is all mint, with the other flavors not coming through at all. The mouth feel is really thin, and I'm glad it doesn't hang around too long. For a beer that started so well, it all fell apart once it enters your mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Near black pour with a frothy, brown head. Smells exactly like a thin mint cookie. Its a bit of a letdown from here as the flavors are bland malts with a hint of dry mint lingering in the aftertaste. Very thin body with average carbonation. Not bad and certainly different, but a little more complexity could have made this a home run.

Bottle at home via trade with FlandersNed. Pours opaque black with a small, frothy tan head head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is mint, chocolate and roast malt, prunes and earthy hops. Flavor is dark malt and fruits with moderate mint, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

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.

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.

umich03jm (2119) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAY 25, 2013
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.
