2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sample at SBWF 2013.
Dark brown with a small head. This was a strange beer, totally dominated by mint. Also chocolate and some roasted malt. Not my cup of tea.

3.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at freshcraft. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Massive mint on the nose which is more spearmint than anything. Lots of mint on the tongue well but it doesn’t blend with the beer very well. What smelled natural feels artificial on the tongue. Finishes clean but its a miss for me. Maybe mint would work better in a sweet stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I wouldn’t drink two of these in a row, but the fact that one beer can balance so many extreme flavors is impressive. Very minty with a very silky mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours to a deep brownish black body with a spotty light tan head. The aroma has a very pronounced mint and menthol component. Vanilla and herbs. The flavor is kind of sort of like a thin mint cookie. Medium body with a crisp menthol. No artificial flavors at all.

Can 355ml @ Motel Room, Motel 6, Kingman, AZ
Pours reddish dark brown with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate and way to much peppermint. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with a long peppermint and chocolate finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. It pours a very dark brown body, looking unclear, and topped by a dense, finger-thick beige head. The aroma has a lot of mint, leaving too little room for chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. It’s full-bodied and smooth on the palate, semi-sweet, with too much mint in the flavor too. Roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate, and some roasted malts bitterness in the end. Which of course is also mint-ish. Overall, quite nice, but please use less mint. 130819

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to errl for sharing this can. Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has a ton of spearmint and chocolate notes. The flavor is similar. The mint really stands out but it is joined by some chocolate and roasted malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
