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 ......

Can at the Half Marathon Tasting, May 2015. Don’t worry Jay, this one was terrible. Pours a deep brownish body with thin off white lacing. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with notes of earthy roast, dark chocolate malt, tobacco and lots of artificial mint and toothpaste flavor. The mint and roast are both potentially strong flavors on their own, but the balance is off in this one.

Can. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Sweet thin mints, mild roasted malts, slight huskiness, and moderate sweetness. Odd, but kind of enjoyable.

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.

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.
