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.

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. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, too much like cigarettes and ash.

Sampled at EBF Saturday afternoon.
Solid black color with an off white head. Smells of chocolate and peppermint. Yup its a thin mint. Taste is very heavy on the mint with bits of chocolate and roast. medium body and carbonation level with a sweet almost syrupy mouthfeel. Decent beer and an A for creativity.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Right Brain. Pours dark brown with cola like carbonation and a fizzy head. Aromas are straight Thin Mints. Chocolate and mint. Thatís it. Nothing more to see here. Actually, it smells great and makes me a little hungry. First sip is a little disappointing, though. It has the flavors promised in the nose, but they are a little washed out and watered down. The mint is stronger and the stout and chocolate take a back seat. Itís good and I was surprised to like this as much as I did, but I would have liked a thicker mouthfeel and a more robust stout to back up that mint.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at MBGWF 2011. Poured a black color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy chocolate mint aroma. Medium to heavy sweet chocolate and mint flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good sweet beer.
