Oh wow! Sampled on draught at the ABR í07 in Minneapolis, MN. Pours an opaque dark brown brew with a thick light tan head that has good retention and lacing. Aroma of a chocolate mint wafer with a touch of bourbon and coconuts. Taste is full bodied, very light carbonation with a more coffee mint flavor with some bourbon character. Finish is smooth, creamy, with a nice coffee and mint aftertaste. Remind me to order my yearly supply of those Girl Scout chocolate mint cookies. This brew was a wonderful experience.

Draft at ABR. Roasted malt and mint dominate the aroma. I picked up a bit of bourbon, but I didnít think that it was overpowering. Creamy malt, cocoa, wood and mint on the palate. Fairly rich and creamy. I like it!

[Draft, ABR í07] Pours black with a nice large tan head. Bourbon dominates the aroma, although there is definitely some mint there too. Taste is once again way too strong of bourbon, with mint a powerful second and roasted malt more of an afterthought. Medium mouthfeel. Long finish. Iíll give this beer points for originality, but the bourbon takes the score down. Iím officially off the bourbon bandwagon.

GTMW 2007. Poured a dark black color with orange highlights. The aroma and flavor reminded me of an alcoholic version of the famous thin mint Girl Scout cookie. Broken fresh mint leaves, a touch of bourbon, and milk chocolate. As far as I could tell, the only missing ingredient was a pinch of salt. There was also a watered down coffee note. It was a bit thinner than I had expected, but not watery by any means. Very good beer.

10th Annual Mid*Winter Brewfest. Pours to a dark brown/black body with a creamy light brown head. The aroma is like a light vanilla infused York peppermint patty. The flavor is also full of the menthol but is quite balanced by the chocolate and lightly changed by the vanilla from the bourbon barrel. It starts off mellow and accelerates into a menthol monster. The palate is refreshing and vibrant. Quite different and definitely nice.

On tap at Deepwater Grille in Ashland. Pours dark black with thick off-white head. Aroma of bourbon, coffee, mint and sweet malt. Every flavor is apparent in the taste and all at different times. Great.

This beer is the embodiment of comfort and security. the aroma of coffee and mint with flirt of burbon. the guy who said "Peppermint schnapps...aroma" clearly has his head up his butt. the flavor is that of dark roasted coffee and fresh dark chocolate with a bit of Bourbon all wrapped in christmas mint.

Black with a smaller tan head. Peppermint schnapps, cola and coffee in the aromas. Flavors actually cling to the aromas with an added dose of cocoa. For me barrel aging in this one has pushed it to a liqueur type quaff. Slick and smooth in feel. An interesting libation

SUPERIOR FALLFEST: Black Coloring with Sandy Head. Wonderful Complex Aroma...of Chocolate, Sweet Malt, Mint with a Light Coffee and Bourbon Whiskey Notes Mixing In and Out. Roasted Coffee Notes Balancing out Sweet Malt - Chocolate and Mint Notes Most Prominant with a Slight Whiskey Background.. Overall, the Bourbon Aging Seems to Push Out the Chocolate Mint Flavors to Make it Really Creamy, Rich Chocolate/Minty Brew Thatís Quite Enjoyable!
