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.

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.

omhper (19383) - 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.

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.

yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2013
Can. It pours a very dark brown body, looking unclear, and topped by a dense, finger-thick beige head. The aroma has a lot of mint, leaving too little room for chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. It’s full-bodied and smooth on the palate, semi-sweet, with too much mint in the flavor too. Roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate, and some roasted malts bitterness in the end. Which of course is also mint-ish. Overall, quite nice, but please use less mint. 130819

Dark brown color, good brownish head. Mint-chocolaty aroma. Light-bodied. Some chocolate tooth paste, mint. Minty. Awful.

(12oz can) Pours a dark brown body with a small tan head. Aroma of Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies. Flavor of watered down Thin Mints and chocolate. More mint than chocolate.

Can poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lasting creamy tan head. Aromas of mint, dark chocolate and roastiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of mint, chocolate wafer cookie and ligh roastiness with a smooth lingering chocolate mint finish.
