Aroma and taste is a nice stouty cocoa backbone. Then u add some mint in to it. Also a little milky sweetness. With out the mint this is a good stout, with the mint it depends on if u like mint in ur stout. Appearantly I did. Medium body, slick feel.

I always though a mint stout would be interesting and now that I have tried one I can say that, yes, for sure it is interesting. Specifically, it is interesting in a way that I can kind of pretend I enjoy it but not in a way that it is entirely unlike drinking beer right after you brushed your teeth. The thing is, beyond the the minty gimmick, this is actually a good American stout. It is deep black with a brown head that fades to a long-lasting ring and leaves big splotches of lace. It is tasty with lots of roast character complimented by a good amount of hops, big and rich, and for some reason someone put mint in it. I can see doing something like this as a homebrew experiment but I’m not sure how it made it to production at a fairly large craft brewery. I applaud the effort but I am never buying this again.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Interesting to say the least, pours a very dark reddish brown with a finger of tan head. Aroma of candy canes, mint gum, milk chocolate, cream soda and cocoa. An average carbonation fits well,but the body could do with a slight bulk, the beer manages to be both ice cream like in creamy taste but still slightly thin on the palate. Initial taste is of bitter chocolate followed by almost pallet cleaning mint, a milky note is present and combined with the almost artificial vanilla, the beer is given a mint choc chip ice cream character. A good amount of traditional American stout malt character is shown, however the mint aspect of the beer is just a bit to much.

Pint on tap. So this is a pretty fantastic beer, I was immediately impressed with the appearance and aroma. It looks like a regular stout--tan head, dark, opaque, average lacing. The mint smell is apparent but not overwhelming - it lets the other smells shine through. The real spearmint and peppermint make this awesome, the taste is very fresh for a stout and not overbearing. Just a great new style of beer, I really really liked it!

Can, thanks to Fergus I believe... It pours very dark brown with a small tan head. The nose is roasty, toast, fresh mint, dark chocolate and After Eight mints. The taste is roasted malt, toast, earth, ash, light alcohol, mint chocolate and light bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nice mint chocolate character, but not a whole lot else. Decent.

Actually the WORST beer I’ve ever had IN MY LIFE. I’m three beers into the six pack over two weeks and I decided, after opening and sipping the fourth, that I could not stand another drop of this horror. Combine any cheap mouth wash with an otherwise probably tasty stout. Slam it into a can. Waste my time and money.

This is a fun beer... tastes similar to the chocolate mints you can get at Olive Garden. Good mouth feel and very good taste if u like mint.

Can from Trembling Madness, York. This is a very dark brown-black beer which pours with a thin tan head. It has an extremely unusual mint and chocolate flavour, slight coffee notes an more gentle mint on the finish. Amazingly different and just like an After Eight chocolate in a bottle!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355 ml can.
Pours black color with a small off-white head. Aroma is - surprise, surprise - quite minty, some milky chocolate and cocoa follow with subtle ginger notes. Flavor is quite spicy at first, then come the mint and chocolate, nice hints of vanilla, dark malt notes and some cocoa on the finish as well. Feels a bit light and at times christmassy, not quite sure what to think of this. I have to admit I had my fare share of doubts about this one, but it’s quite interesting to say the least, and not offensive at all (as I feared).
