12oz can. Rating #31. Dark black with a tan head. Big and sweet mint chocolate aroma, really nice, like ice cream. Big mint flavor with a big mint aftertaste, kind of a creme de menthe thing going on. Cool stuff. (2808)

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. can poured to a Czech-pils glass at Lunar Brewing Co. with a dark brown, ruby highlighted color, moussy/frothy, tan head foam, and good cling to the web-like lacing. The aroma was a dessert nose of mint, chocolate, and caramel, with some roastiness hidden in there someplace. From there, the experience went down hill. Softly carbonated with a watery & thin texture, light malt, and low hop bitterness. Not a lot of character, and found it hard to finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with a fading but laceful beige head. Nice aroma of dark earthy cocoa, smokiness (almost with a tobacco twang), and a sweet touch of mint. Flavor is nice and sweet with a welcome complexity and creaminess. Nice and chocolaty beginning with some roastiness and toasted caramel mixes with a mild but lingering mintiness. A touch earthy with the finish coming dangerously close to a plastic tone, but pleasant and unique.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can. Pours brown black with a medium creamy tan head that quickly goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is roasted malts, mint, vanilla and a little coffee and leather.
The flavor is sweet chocolate and vanilla malts, some roast and a lot of mint. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, a little odd with the sweet chocolate and vanilla, roast and mint, but I think I like it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. can pours a dark cola brown with small tan head and lots of good lacing. Aroma is very strong on the mint with a considerable chocolate and toothpaste, but with some roasted malts that come out in the aftertaste. Body is medium with low carbonation. Mouthfeel is silky smooth. At first this made me say WOW for the first time after trying many beers in a couple of months, but then it seemed like an artificial attempt to try a new flavor of beer to beer geeks who also enjoy Girl Scout Thin Mints, although this beer is not wafer thin. Unfortunately, I ended up coughing some of this up on my keyboard as I wrote this, thinking about the waiter in Monty Python’s "The Meaning of Life" who offered an absolutely stuffed Mr. Creosote an after dinner mint after a huge dinner and a couple cases of Guinness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2013 Can. Pours brown with tan head, settles quickly with minimal lacing. Aroma is minty and chocolate, andes mint, girl scout thin mint. Flavor is similar to aroma, very minty and chocolatey. Reminds me of a junior mint. Flavor is intense, almost artificial, but not quite over the top. Soft to medium carbonation, medium body, and somewhat smooth texture. Interesting, minty, worth trying once.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; poured a dark brown to black. Head was a somewhat light cocoa. Aroma of cocoa, vanilla and mint. Reminds me of Christmas mint M and Ms. Flavor tasted similar; really like mint M&Ms. Finish was somewhat tasteless, but it did linger on the palate for a while (the feeling, not the taste). Palate was quite nice overall. Don’t normally like too much mint, but this one I thought was fairly good.
