decaturstevo (4664) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 4, 2011
Brown black pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is minty and not much more. Flavor is sweet mintiness and a hinto chocolate. A bit thin and fizzy. Not bad but not my cup of tea.

RB1 (117) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Bottle sampled at Daknole’s Memorial Day Tasting (Thanks Sparky). Pours very dark, minimal head. Aroma is dominated by mint. Taste is bourbon, coffee, and overpowering MINT. Finish is minty coffee. For me, the mint is just not a good fit for a bourbon barrel stout. Too sweet. Mint should stay at the Kentucky Derby; in Julips, where it belongs.

Bottle generously shared by Sparky...thanks, my friend! Aroma of used coffee grounds, caramel, and a little vanilla. Flavor is similar. Fairly smooth...no off flavors. Medium mouthfeel.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Thanks to Ughsmash for this rare tick... dark brown body with a light tan head, forms a ring, no lace... the nose is awesome, totally nails mint chocolate chip ice cream, no coffee or bourbon, the mint is a touch to strong comes off a bit chemically but I’m digging it... the taste is lighter, coffee with more mint, a little more balanced but too light so its a touch disappointing... worth trying if you love mint but other than that you can skip it

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Bottle… Pours dark brown with a small, creamy, taupe head. Good retention. As expected, the bouquet is a bit odd – herbal sassafras, dark chocolate and a whisper of sourmash whiskey. Medium-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is chocolaty with a touch of mint and a mild, herbal, sarsaparilla component. Tilts just a tad toward the sweet side of balance. Things wrap up with nice mocha and a subtle kiss of acidity.

madvike (2578) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Bottle - Pours deep brown with a rapidly dissipating frothy tan head. Nose is light bourbon sweetness with pronounced creme de menthe, chocolate, and a bit of coffee grounds. Real smooth, with a nice medium roast, creme de menthe, irish creme, a bit of sweet oaky bourbon. A bit of a flat finish, with a bit of coffee and some sweet syrupy flavors mingling with the oak. A little thinner than I expected, and not a ton of carbonation. Going to have to agree with some of the others that it tastes a bit artificial, but it still works pretty well. For one pour, it’s pretty pleasant.
