Thin mint cookie, meet John Niedermaier A stout made with organic locally-grown whole leaf mint. Sheís 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.

This beer is being served at "The Avenue" in Lansing. I got a bit in a snifter, and tasting it after having a shortís amber ale of some sort that I canít recall the name of right now. It is a bit on the light side for a stout, which results in the lowish marks for appearance and palate. That being said, it does have a nice bouquet, sort of a bit of licorice, chocolate, and a hint of mint but just on the end of things, and not a bad note to end on at that. Itís also not crazy on the ABV so you can have one or two and not have to call a designated driver. That being said, spring is here, and triples are what I am cravingÖ

Not very happy with this purchase. Granted, it is spot on artistically - itís a stout version of thin mint cookies. The mint, mild sweetness, and chocolate make it feel like a drinkable cookie, but... drinkable cookie. I donít want to drink a cookie. Granted, I saw Naughty Girl Stout without catching the Girl Scout reference - I saw Naughty Girl, and expected a stout thatíd spank me, and I got thin mints, so I was totally unprepared. It was an experience. Try it, but have a beer on hand to drink afterwards.

Pours very dark brown with about one finger of tan head. Aroma is some roast some chocolate and the mint flavor is chocolate and mint. I didn't really like the mint. Medium bodied. Decent beer.

Black pour tan head. Coffee chocolate and mint aroma. Thinner body than I hoped for. Thin mint, chocolate taste with an off finish.

Nice chocolate mint smell and flavor. Mint taste is a bit forced and piercing. Overall not too bad Iím not sure how much of it I could have though.

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Bottle: First bottle enjoyed a year ago thanks to Jeff. Re-rate of a fresh bottle thanks to Kevin. Pretty dark, creamy black pour with a tan, foamy that recedes quickly. Aroma is minty, menthol-y, & full of some deep, bittersweet chocolates underneath. Mix of a York peppermint patty & peppermint Skoal. Taste is not as thick as it looks. Light notes of peppermint, menthol, cocoa malt, faint roast, & a touch of prunes in the finish. Lightly medicinal, Iím not completely digging the mint character. Little too menthol-like... Unfortunately gets more harsh with time. Not for me.

Bottle... Pitch black pour with a small, taupe head. Fresh mint is predominant in the aroma, but there are faint, deeply-roasted malt and cocoa notes. Medium to full-bodied and watery with vibrant carbonation. Charred, ashy flavor that leans slightly toward the bitter side of balance. Not much else going on, other than some faint, fresh mint. Finishes thin and watery. Needs more mint and a lot more malt. Some thickening sugars and/or lactose would also be welcomed, since this is listed as a sweet stout. I wonder about that, as thereís no mention of lactose in the commercial description. Bottle courtesy of FlandersNed!

Bottle shared by Mike at his place. The mint is definitely there, more herbal than candy in quality. Plenty of dark chocolate in the nose. More earthy mint with dark chocolate in the flavor with a surprising amount of smoke. Slight char to go with the sweetness is really nice.
