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.

Pyrmir (3901) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2013
Sample from can @sbwf13. Black with tan head. Aroma of mint, chocolate, roasted malt and burnt notes. Taste is a bit thin, mint, roasted, burnt. Not my chalice of ale.

jamestulloch (1866) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Can from Drinkmonger. Black body with a thin beige head that fades. Light lacing. Aroma of After Eight chocolate mints and vanilla ice-cream. Flavour of mint-choc-chip ice-cream. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft carbonation. A great beer for the end of a night - but I couldn’t have more than a pint. This is much better than it could have been.

Opaque dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Soft and smooth palate, airy and semi dry. Light tangy dark malts. Touch of dark chocolate and sweetish vanilla. Dominant flavour is smooth spearmint! Finishes smooth and semi dry. Tangy spearmint aftertaste. Hangs together well.

HonkeyBra (3655) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - OCT 26, 2013
12 oz. can. Rating from notes. Pours a rich black pour with a fluffy tan colored head. Aroma of mint, chocolate, thin mint girl scout cookies, not much else. Flavor is strong mint, strong milk chocolate. That’s about it. It’s like drinking a girl scout cookie. Which is fine, but it gets tiresome on the palate. Medium bodied, nice carbonation. Overall, meh.

dfinney23 (2116) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Looks like a typical stout. Aroma of chocolate and mint, as is the taste. Great dessert beer, if you’re into that sort of thing. Certainly unique.

bwa5879 (787) - Portage, Michigan, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Pour like espresso, a bit of cola colored head on top. Aroma is pepperming, spearmint, and sweet chocolate. Good scent for dessert, very unique for a stout. Low carbonation, thin body, clean finish. Flavors of spearmint/root beer, peppermint, sweet chocolate. Not too bad, would be great during the christmas season and only a few at that, mostly a novelty to me.

Sammy (9280) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2013
Very dark with lasting mocha coloured head and lots of lace. Aromas of chocolate and mint. Smells better than it tastes, medium mouthfeel but very herbal concoction, improving as warms because more bitter chocolate. Too much mint. Extra in trade.

One of the a few beers I could only handle a few sips. This is a peppermint stout which tastes awful. The worst combination ever. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jmgreenuk (5531) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 8, 2013
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.
