COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Real spearmint and peppermint — not extract — combine with cocoa nibs and vanilla beans to create your reward for making it through winter.

Ancient Greeks tell us (’cause we talk to them) that Persephone turned Minthe into a mint plant in a jealous rage, to keep the little nymph away from her man Hades. Jealous rages rarely end well, but if one did result in mint we’re glad: this is a unique and delicious stout, and we recommend having one while you calm the hell down.

zacgillbanks (2562) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2014
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!

olio (6523) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 9, 2014
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).

(12oz can) Pours a dark brown body with a small tan head. Aroma of Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies. Flavor of watered down Thin Mints and chocolate. More mint than chocolate.

Dark brine pour, brown head. So the mint is there but in a natural and smooth way. It actually wit is well with the stout.

Interesting one this. The smell reminds me a lot of chocolate chip mint ice cream, which lead me to thinking that maybe the beer would be overly cloying and sweet. Luckily it isn’t and rather the mint tastes natural and complioments the stout fairly well. I can’t see myself wanting to drink more than one can of this at a time, however I am glad to have given it a go!

Beerhunter111 (8393) - Hasborn, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2014
Sehr dunkelbraunes Bier mit schöner leicht bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Geruch stark nach Pfefferminze, etwas Schokolade. Im Antrunk starker Pfefferminz Geschmack, Kaugummi. Im Abgang kommen dann auch Kaffeearomen durch. Wirkt leicht scharf durch die Minze.

This would be higher if I liked mint, but I don’t so it’s not. It’s just a little too overpowering, like I left my toothbrush soaking in a caramel stout. Watch it go down in under 6 seconds: http://teamchug.com/?p=135

Pizd (433) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2013
(Can): Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is awful, smells like someone chucked toothpaste into a stout. Flavour isn’t much better, just a blast of really overpowering mint which mixed with the regular stout flavours, could’ve been nice but this just hasn’t worked at all. Underneath the mint there’s some roasted malt, chocolate and coffee flavours but it takes a lot of concentration to get past the hellish mint. So disappointed, sounded like a delicious idea for a beer.
