3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Fresh Craft, Denver. Poured a deep mahogany with no head at all. The aroma is unsurprisingly mint and chocolate. After Eight for anyone who knows what that is. The flavour is medium bitter with a fresh mint chocolate slightly watery palate. A really different and unusual beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Fresh Craft in Denver. Pours a dark cola brown with a fading tan head. Mint chocolate nose and flavor. Not overly sweet and fairly light bodied, but plenty of flavor. Slight bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sampled at Fresh Craft, Denver. Pours near black with a ring tan head. Aroma of mint and chocolate, like "after 8" mints I would have as a kid. Brilliant! This is also present in the flavour, moderate sweet and bitter but unfortunately fading into a slightly weird aftertaste. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Canned@SBWF2013. Black colour, small off-white fluffy head. Aroma is mithe, some chocolate and mild herbal notes. Flavour is very similar. I hate minthe as such, but actually in this beer I didn’t find it that offensive.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
