[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.

Aged about a year. Pours dark brown to black. Small brown head that dissipates to a fair soapy lasting beige topping. Interesting and unique aroma. Someone said mint chocolate ice cream and thatís right there. Theres some smooth bourbon there as well. I think the age has helped take some edge off. Flavor is much the same but much less substantial. Body is a bit light, thin. Finish is sorta tangy, light roasty with some mint. A good beer but does not compare to the big boys.

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.

A very nice stout. The mint is subtle and compliments the chocolate nicely.

Had some big pours from this out of the bottle recently. Not sure how old it was. I was extremely impressed with this. Strong mint scent that fades into vanilla and chocolate sweetness as it warms. Really enjoyed this.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - APR 9, 2011
Pours black with a medium mocha color. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, mint, light bourbon........kinda smells and tastes like an Andes Mint. I expected it to be really boozy, thick, and cloying but it was actually quite balanced.

hellomynameis (874) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2007
Dark with some red hues. Lots of mint in the aroma. Very chocolatey flavour with the tiniest hint of bourbon flavour. Lots and lots of mint in the aftertase. it was pretty good, and it all worked well together but itís just not my thing and I didnít much enjoy it.

Steasy66 (847) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Bomber into snifter. Black with medium tan head. Aroma is crazy, like mint chocolate chip ice cream. I really donít know what to say about the taste. The mint and coffee are strong. The beer is really sweet, but its a sugary sweetness, not a malty one. I donít get the bourbon barrel at all. Not sure what to say, interesting beer, but not up my alley.

Westchesterco (845) - mclean, Virginia, USA - AUG 8, 2013
From a bottle it is brown with a slight head. The aroma is of bourbon and mint. It tastes of chocolate and mint and has. A bitter and sweet flavor that resonated on the palate
