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 itís quite interesting to say the least, and not offensive at all (as I feared).

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 isnít and rather the mint tastes natural and complioments the stout fairly well. I canít see myself wanting to drink more than one can of this at a time, however I am glad to have given it a go!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sehr dunkelbraunes Bier mit schŲner leicht bršunlichen 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 donít so itís not. Itís 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

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Can): Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is awful, smells like someone chucked toothpaste into a stout. Flavour isnít much better, just a blast of really overpowering mint which mixed with the regular stout flavours, couldíve been nice but this just hasnít worked at all. Underneath the mint thereís 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.

Can from StarmoreBoss, Sheffield. Nice looking beer, that promises much. Spearmint, cocoa, lightly roasted coffee. Taste is not as complex, though. Dry, bitter, but a bit thin. Light body. Dry finish. Probably better with a square or two of decent chocolate.
