robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2004
2004 Autumn Brew Review: Dark Coloring with No Head. Some Chocolate/Mint Aroma. Some Roasted Coffee and Chocolate. Mint Not as Evident as I Would Have Like, But it Was Balanced Very Well and a Wonderful Sweet Stout.

Stine (1453) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Tap at the Muddy Pig. Deep brown with some burgundy glow and a metallic hued tan head. Searing mint aroma with a dirty mocha touch. Calming down with warmth, as the substantial malt body unearths itself in caramelized sugar, cocoa, and toasted coconut flourishes. Sugary and falsified with candy. Flavor retains a mild vinous character that imparts black licorice and prunes; burnt dark chocolate brownies and hints of eggnog layer a bit loose over a lightly acrid, thin folgers roast. Higher gravity would be salient to counteract the muddle of flavors that sits in watered down discontent. Chocolate grahams, some wood, and lots of contrived spearmint flavor in the finish. A rambler, disconnected and slightly dissonant, with a few overblown voices.

pepsican (1419) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - AUG 27, 2008
GTMW! Black pour with a light tan head. Rich coffee and mint aroma. Flavor was mint, chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Light and thin, could use more body.

zizzybalubba (1317) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Sampled at GTMW 2009. Black pour with a fizzy, beige head. Aroma of (surprise) coffee and mint. Flavor is (you guessed it) mostly coffee and mint but blends well with the chocolate maltiness from the stout. This is a very interesting blend and I don’t know of any other beer I have tried that uses mint. But it works. I was intrigued by the concept and pleasantly surprised by the results.

xmarcnolanx (925) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Cask GTMW, thanks to Kan. Aroma is mint, chocolate, coffee. Very minty and sugary. Taste is sweet mint with chocolate and hints of coffee and finishes with more sweet peppermint Andes mint. Decent.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Pours dark brown with light head. Aroma of coffee mint and stout (in that order). Flavor matches aroma. Delicious

bookman10 (587) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2008 Tried this on draft at the brewpub in Ashland. An almost overpowering mint flavor to this one. The first few sips were interesting--it does taste like a mint/chocolate cookie. But by the end, all I could taste was mint and it was a bit like drinking medicine.

incutrav (577) - Woodbury, Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2008 Had on tap at OC in A.V. Tastey stuff, mint is a bit more subdued then the Bourbon version it seems. Still good rich and malty, with a decent coffee backbone, that seems to fade as you drink it. Nice to see that it made it’s way to the cities, will save me yet another trip to the brewery.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 24, 2005
Tap at brewery. Moderate to thin dark brown head. Slight burnt aroma . Fully opague - black. Taste is full coffee, bitter from coffee, not hops. Resinous and thick. Burnt toast. Mint is quite muted and late. A bit heavy handed with the coffee for my taste.

KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - FEB 12, 2008
On tap at the Muddy Pig in St. Paul. Dark rich brown pour with a nice fluffy tan head. The aroma is mint and bitter cocoa. The mint and bitter cocoa are present in the taste as well but there is a hint of dark candied fruit too. No one flavor dominates this beer, but the bitter cocoa is present throughout.
