Stine (1464) - 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.

well, this is definitely a well crafted beer. but the mint is overpowering. i couldnít finish my sample... iím sorry, i guess i donít like mint in my beer. (or peppers). (or smoke). maybe if it was my first beer of the night and i had time to sip and enjoy it, iíd rate it differently. iíll try it again.

pepsican (1438) - @ $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.

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.
