3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Mild nose. Dark chocolate, mild mint. Light earthy bitterness. Hint of smoke. Medium finish. Balanced flavors. I wish it was a tad more sweet to bring out the mint, opposed to a bittersweet menthol flavor. It’s OK ......

12oz can from Craftshack. Pours black with a small foamy tan head. Aroma of burnt chocolate, roasted malt, and thin mint cookies. Taste of black malts, dark chocolate, toothpaste, and some sourness in the finish.

Can at James’s with Andy, James, Jay. The can is black with white and gray writing and the woman on the front is white holding a plant lady. Recyclable for 5c. Spicy earthy aroma; light body with peppery notes and curbed heat. Short legs appreciated.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Ebony, still and dark. No light gets through; hardly any bubbles do, either. A whisper of a cocoa-colored ring. Sourdough bread, toast, dark chocolate, and Andes mints in the nose. Just a bit more chocolate than mint. Clean and in perfect balance. the flavor leads with toast, a hint of tangy sourdough, dark chocolate and sweet mint. Not overly herbal -- more sweet, like toothpaste. Creamy medium body, good heft. A little oily. The mint is noticeable but subtle; a perfect amount. Clean, clear flavors. Like brushing your teeth with a chocolate toothbrush.

Draught. So this is a really minty stout. I would have this with Girl Scout Cookies or ice cream other than that think before you drink.

If you like to dip Peppermint Patties into stout, you will love this. The first couple of sips were novel, but that wore off pretty quickly.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black oily body with large dark brown creamy head that rapidly disappears into non-existence. The mintiness is most evident in the aroma, and displays itself like a peppermint patty, but in the flavor, it comes off as a little medicinal menthol flavor. Roast and burnt chocolate. Decent, but the flavor just doesn’t do it for me. A little thin on the palate.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Sugaya. Choco-mint candy nose, with some roastiness and a bit of coffee. Dark translucent brown color with ruby highlights. Chocolate mint, again, in initial flavors. Rather sweetish and a bit too much cola note. Thin body. The mint is not overpowering, but it is everpresent and overpresent. Body is fairly thin. Interesting for the first few sips but not beyond that.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home Wednesday 10th September 2014 Pours black with a mid sized frothy off-white actually light beige head. An experience not unlike drinking a stout immediately after cleaning your teeth. Clean, fresh, minty but with those usual stout characteristics in the background. A great mouthwash of a stout that is actually better than it sounds. A6 A4 T7 P3 Ov13 3.3

"I think this would work better if it were a bigger beer, as the thin feel is almost overwhelmed by the enormity of the aroma and flavors, but it’s still solid. At 7,8,9% though, it’d probably be epic. Nose is spearamint and peppermint dominated, as is the flavor, with vanilla and chocolate playing an important backup role. The menthol of beers. I dug it. A couple in our party did not, but the rest of the 6er will make a nice after dinner brew. Best by last week, so I better hurry up on that."
