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.

This was a surprising beer to me, it was smooth and the mint was like an andes mint. It complimented the beer because the two aspects of the mint and the stout just flowed together. A beer I really enjoyed and would definitely recommend.

Pint on tap. So this is a pretty fantastic beer, I was immediately impressed with the appearance and aroma. It looks like a regular stout--tan head, dark, opaque, average lacing. The mint smell is apparent but not overwhelming - it lets the other smells shine through. The real spearmint and peppermint make this awesome, the taste is very fresh for a stout and not overbearing. Just a great new style of beer, I really really liked it!

More than a Girl Scout cookie in a glass, but could be a stronger stout. Peppermint and chocolate tones linger to be savored until your next sip. You’ll enjoy.

A Girl Scout cookie in a nice stout. I like this beer. It could be better with some nitro and a little more aromatic to the mint.

Can from Total Wine. Pours dark brown with a khaki head. Aroma is tons of fresh chopped mint and dark chocolate. Taste is semi-sweet with beautiful mint and hint of roast. Medium bodied and somewhat slick. Lots of herbiness in the finish. The stout itself is pretty good, but I think the use of mint is near perfect. Its not artifical in the least and is so fresh and vibrant. Nice, nice job!

Can from Trembling Madness, York. This is a very dark brown-black beer which pours with a thin tan head. It has an extremely unusual mint and chocolate flavour, slight coffee notes an more gentle mint on the finish. Amazingly different and just like an After Eight chocolate in a bottle!

Aroma and taste is a nice stouty cocoa backbone. Then u add some mint in to it. Also a little milky sweetness. With out the mint this is a good stout, with the mint it depends on if u like mint in ur stout. Appearantly I did. Medium body, slick feel.

The aroma came out stronger once the beer warmed up. The flavor was great but the mint was over taken by the strong chocolate at the start.

Pours dark, unclear, almost black coffee in color with a big creamy sandy colored head. The aroma totally give vanilla root bear and light spearmint, such a delicate balance, almost too delicate for a stout base, but I love it for the sweetness of course. The flavor brings a root beer aspect as well, a bit of sweet vanilla and birch like malt flavors. The spearmint and peppermint are so subtle on the backend and then lay cleanly in the mouth. They may have found the perfect balance for mint in a beer with this one!
