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.

Can at SBWF 2013. Pour black with a Brown head. Mint aroma and taste of mint chocolate. It is a fun brew but a few cl is enough.

This beer borders in a gimmick beer, but is really good. The mint jumps out so much more than I expected. It's a boozed up, liquid Thin Mint. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2013
Canned at SBWF. Near black, rich head. Strong peppermint aroma. Sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Simplistic flavour of chocolate and mint. Low bitterness. Gimmicky, and not really in a fun way.

fiercepanda (505) - Missouri, USA - SEP 28, 2013
A black beer with minimal tan head. The aroma is heavily minty with a little cocoa. The flavor is mint chocolate, not bad, but thin bodied.

gyllenbock (4397) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2013
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.

Canned at Stockholm Beer&Whisky Festival 2013. Black beer eith a beige head. Mint aroma, after eight. Mint flavor, tooth paste. Really strange.

DiarmaidBHK (3347) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 22, 2013
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.

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.

Can. Pours a dark brown with small beige head. The aroma is a strong mint toothpaste and chocolate. Sweet chocolate and overpowering mint flavor. Decent.
