COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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!

22 ounce bottle pours dark black with aromas of choclate and some earth. Flavors arw choclate, mint, cookies, and some earth. Flavor was pretty amazing not much in aroma but tast is almost thin mint milk shake.

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.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Poured from a 22oz bomber and into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint. Bomber was $6.99, so this had better be good! Appearance: Pitch black. Dark tan head that has about three fingers, then dies down to a thin foam on top. Very little lacing. Really a nice looking beer, even with a lack of lacing. The bottom of the bottle yields quite a lot of sediment. Smell: As others have said, chocolate mint ice cream. York peppermint patties. Andes. Girl Scout Thin Mints. Anything you can think of with chocolate and mint. Taste/feel: Itís what the smell is, but more muted. This beer actually has surprisingly little flavor, to me. There arenít bold roasty characters, thick chocolate, or pungent mint -- itís just really mild... not sweet, and very mildly bitter. Thatís not a bad thing, but not what I was expecting. Beginning to end, this drinks like a weak porter with some mint added. On the finish, I supposed thereís a hint of roasted malts, but itís not much. The feel is actually pretty thin, which makes me think of this as a porter. I thought Naughty Girl Stout would be thick. Heavy. Copious amounts of chocolate with heavy notes of mint, but I donít get that. Bad beer? Nope. I can say that Iím disappointed though... thereís just not much in the way of flavor. I suppose this would be a good one to session, but why would somebody really want to session a minty stout, even if it is this mild? I donít know just what to make of this beer, but I donít think it ought to be sold in bombers. I tend to think of beers that are available only in bombers to be massive in smell, taste, and ABV. I love the look of this beer, and it has an inviting aroma, but itís just lacking, overall. A 22oz bottle shouldnít be too hard to finish, just because itís pleasant and not cloying.

Bottle with a few brahs, pours black with small beige head. Notes are really light: chocolate, weak mint, tooth paste, and bland flavor. Really thin palate. Satanís bake sale rapes this beersí butthole.
