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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 there’s no mention of lactose in the commercial description. Bottle courtesy of FlandersNed!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz Handbottle. Raging mint aroma in chocolate and roast. Mostly mint. Nice, strong and fresh. The mint is a little confusing. Pours deep black-brown with a deep, silky tan head. Flavor is a confusing blend of mint, menthol tobacco and barbeque. Leafy and spicy. Body is a touch thin, but edges towards a mint marinade for lamb. Roast comes up in toffee and hazelnut on the backend. Dry. A little oil in the background. I like the play of fresh mint and roast, but the mint comes somewhat as toothpaste. Otherwise, pretty damn interesting. Thanks Sean!
