3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Big aroma of mint, coffee, and tobacco. The flavor is minty, tobacco, a slight brettanomyces character, bourbon. This is a bit muddled.

July 21, 2012 from a bottle at All Pints North. Dark brown pour with some head. Bourbon, mint, coffee and chocolate in aroma and taste. Medium body and little carbonation. Really solid beer, but I am a sucker for bourbon.

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!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Been sitting on this one for a while and finally cracked. Pours a dark brown color with a light tan head. The mint is very noticeable as soon as I poured the beer. Dark roast, chocolate, and mint all in the nose. Slight minty start that stays the whole time. Light chocolate and roast notes. Easy drinking and somewhat refreshing. The only let down is that the bourbon notes are pretty minimal. Medium bodied. Ever so slight lace. Overall, decent.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased at Discount Liquors in Milwaukee, WI; enjoyed on my 30th birthday with a good friend before watching the Home Run Derby. Appearance pitch black, like black coffee, with thin tan/cream head that rims around the glass. Aroma like a hodge podge of coffee, bourbon, peppermint, chocolate, and lactose...except that I canít identify each ingredient separately, just smells like all those ingredients thrown into something. Taste is pretty good, its slightly smooth, very strong. The bourbon really comes through, each sip is somewhat shot-like. Seems like the peppermint provides a slight bite, coffee notes also apparent in the finish, leaves a slightly sour feeling. Also, the lactose/milkyness of this fades in the flavor, doesnít taste very thick to me. Its pretty good stuff, happy to have given it a shot.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[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.

Autumn Brew Review í07
Very interesting idea here. Iíve never had mint as a flavor in the brew, but the concept seems to work. Itís like they dropped an altoids into the beer. I can see how some may consider this a love it or hate it type of beer. Refreshing to say the least, and one Iíd drink again.

Pours a deep dark brown with frothy, creamy- tannish head. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate, coffee, and light candied peppermint. Taste is much the same. Peppermint is well hidden and not as explosive as I was expecting. Very tasting offering from South Shore.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bomber pours a dark brown/black with a thin tan head. Iíll have to agree it smells a lot like chocolate chip mint ice cream with a backing of bourbon, not in a bad way though. Wow nice taste! Earthy coffee, a hint of mint, sweet chocolate, and rounded out with vanilla and bourbon. Very well rounded and drinkable. From the aroma youíd think the mint would be overpowering but no one element is every dominate. Very drinkable, nice! I need more of this stuff.
