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!

Terrible... Things in this beer were mixed that should not have been mixed.. first off mint and bourbon.. no.. I thought this sounded interesteding but a 2oz sample was still too much.

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, itís pretty pleasant.

poured a deep brown with a fizzy tan head that fades. aroma was very upfront with mint, then cinnamon, oak, and chocolate. flavor was mint, watery coffee, dark roasts, and alcohol. body was thin and fizzy. I had really high hopes for this one. I just wish the base was an impy stout or something stronger.

Always thought adding mint to a stout would be good, so now I finally tried a pour at RBSG. Pours out black with a thin tan head. Aroma is of coffee, chocolate, roast, and very subtle mint notes. Taste is chocolate, heavy oaky bourbon, roast, coffee and some lingering mint in the background. Lots going on.

From a 22 oz bottle shared at home. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of peppermint patties. Flavors of mint, chocolate and notes of coffee. Gentle roasted finish. Nice dessert beer.

Wow! That was my initial reaction- incredibly tastey. Makes you want to lick the entire glass inside and out after you are finished. Poured a very dark, thick black colour with a reddish tint. Head was finger sized, brown and sticky. Creamy mouthfeel is an understatement. Minty, dark chocolate and coffee notes. Faint but noticeable oak and whiskey spirit underlining the taste of this beer. Awesome!

Had this at the All Pints North festival in Duluth, MN. Has an awesome mint chocolate chip ice cream scent, taste however was disappointing, it was rather artificial almost like mint flavored floss.

On tap at the Great Lakes Brew Fest. Pours a dark black with red hints. Aroma is grassy, lemony, bourbon with chocolate. Watery flavors, chocolate grassy. Meh.

Oily black pour with a nose of fresh mint and java. Flavors follow pretty much a straight line...mint, coffee, chocolate, touch of the bourbon barrel. Just OK.
