(12oz can thanks to jjfoodie) clear medium brown, fine creamy tan bubbles. Nose of thin mints, wrigley gum, spearmint, chocolate. Taste is very minty, chocolate wafers, weird combo of flavors.

Black pour from bottle at Rugans. Browns sticky head. Smells like mint chocolate. Tastes like mint chocolate. One of the more unique beers I've had

In theory this should work, unfortunately the mint is too forward. What you’re left with is a Girl Scout Cookie.

Pours dark, unclear, almost black coffee in color with a big creamy sandy colored head. The aroma totally give vanilla root bear and light spearmint, such a delicate balance, almost too delicate for a stout base, but I love it for the sweetness of course. The flavor brings a root beer aspect as well, a bit of sweet vanilla and birch like malt flavors. The spearmint and peppermint are so subtle on the backend and then lay cleanly in the mouth. They may have found the perfect balance for mint in a beer with this one!

What a cool take on the style! It pours an oily black with a huge chocolate frothy head that leaves thick chunky suds lacing. The nose is of wintergreen and spearmint. Thick licorice and spearmint flavors abound. Dark malts and grains intermingle with a licorice finish. The body is round with a smooth mouth feel. An easy drink and extremely interesting interpretation make a wonderful one-off take on the stout.

12 oz. can shared with multiple others at brew club. Pours a medium, light beige head, with some lacing, over a dark brown black (SRM 40) body.....nose is spearmint, peppermint, chocolate, light coffee.....taste is mint, chocolate, cocoa, hints of coffee, finishing with mild bitterness.....mouth feel medium, minimal astringency, carbonation low. The various mints dominate both aroma and flavor, but are partially balanced back by the heavy roasted malts. The net result is somewhat mono dimensional. This is a beer to run against sweet deserts.

35 cl can @ home. Pours dark brown with a tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is mint, chocolate, and cocoa (it basically smells like After Eight chocolates). Flavour is much like the aroma – with a minty finish. Fascinating experiment.

damn, this is quite the interesting brew .. . lots of minty coco and fresh mint .. . light mouth .. . a unique beer for sure and very well put together, but my one can is totally the limit .. . . She’s made of iron. I assure you, she can sink....and she will.

Pours dark brown w/ a rapidly dissipating tan head that leaves no lacing. The aroma is quite the blend of mint(s) & some subtle chocolate & vanilla notes. The taste is thin yet refreshing but actually nice for the summer. Not exactly a stout but the added mint flavors really make this interesting. Pretty good!
