On tap at Barcade, pours pitch black with thin beige head, not much lacing. Aromas and flavor of thin mint girl scout cookies, dark chocolate, andes chocolate, hops, and more mint chip. Carbonated with a medium body. This is unbelievable, shits on the stone mint choc chip beer. Cheers

A near perfect beer, delicious in the fall and winter months. It's a thin mint in a glass. No more description needed...it's fantastic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good stout but I would like a bit more mint flavour to complement the aroma

Pours a near black with a dark tan head. Aroma of creme de menthe and chocolate syrup. Taste is sweet bit not overly the roasted malt and bitterness from the hops blends nicely with the mint. Well crafted. Very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Transfer from BA review on 2-3-14- Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance Ė The beer is served a nearly pitch black color with a bit of tan foam on the surface of the brew. The head fades quite fast, leaving a trace level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell Ė The aroma of the beer was big of chocolate smells with a good deal of roasted malt. Along with these aromas are some sweet vanilla and caramel smells as well as a bit of a raisin and cherry smell. A very heavy amount of mint is there as well giving it an overall minty dark sweet chocolate smell. Taste Ė The taste begins with a sweet chocolate flavor mixed with lots of roasted malt. A good level of vanilla and caramel sweetness are present from the start, with just some lighter amount of mint. While the mint is lighter at the start, it really grows quite intense as the flavor advances, melding very well with the sweet chocolate flavors of the brew. The roasted flavors of the taste dwindle a bit at the end, but are replaced by more sweet chocolate. With the transitions of flavors that occur throughout the taste, one is left with a nice sweet mint chocolate flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel-The body of the beer is medium in its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the lighter side. A slightly thicker and creamier body may have been a bit better for the mint chocolate flavors of the brew, but even with that said the lower carbonation was quite nice, and overall the mouthfeel of the brew was good. Overall Ė This is a fantastic dessert beer. It tastes just like a mint chocolate bar. While not one I would want every day, for a sweeter dessert style beer, this one is fantastic.

Pours dark unclear coffee black with a small dark caramel head. Aroma is sweet and delicious bringing vanilla and mint and sweet chocolate all so well blended in the nose - right up my alley with the sweetness! The flavors bring a minty base prevalent but not overbearing, I could see where it would be for some. The flavors of roasted dark chocolate are there, really bring a mint chocolate chip ice cream flavor. Body is not too creamy which is okay, but nice and clean.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Exactly what it claims. However it is a little syrupy. Very sweet but that mint hits hard to balance. Truly good for dessert. Not something To have with a meal. Must have alone or after. Tap

Pours deep dark brown with a mocha head. Aroma is roast, dark chocolate and mint. Taste is sweet with some roast bitters. Medium bodied with a slick and creamy texture, alcohol is well hidden. If you like mint chocolate chip then this beer is for you...itís fantastic. It never gets to sweet and has a perfect amount of mint.

Got in a BIF from JNForsyth. 22 ounce bottle into snifter; no bottle dating, but is a recent seasonal release. Pours pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, mint, light coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and mint/dark chocolate notes; with great strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, mint, light coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roast/char bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, mint, light coffee, dark bread, light smoke/char, and herbal/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice balance, robustness, and complexity of dark/roasted malt and mint/dark chocolate flavors; with a good roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and no cloying flavor after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. A nice light cooling sensation from the mint shows up after the finish as well. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice mint chocolate imperial stout. All around great complexity, balance, and robustness of dark/roasted malt and mint/dark chocolate flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Served on-tap at the Tasting room. A - Pours jet black with a light cascade of two finger tall off-white head leaving light lace down the glass. S - Smells of, you guessed it, peppermint, and lots of it. There are other flavors like chocolate and dark roasted malts but the peppermint is extreamly strong and overpowers most of the other flavors. T - Starts off with a HUGE dose of peppermint and never really goes away throughout the entire glass. As the peppermint dies down a bit you get hints of chocolate and the dark roasted malt core but then the peppermint comes back and pushes them back into the shadows. The finish is a mix of spicy peppermint and even more peppermint. It is really that much peppermint. M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Roasty, minty, feel that lingers LONG after consumption. Peppermint burbs over an hour later? Yup. O - This one is spot on. It has a little too much peppermint in the taste but it isnít really a big deal. It really does taste like they just took a box of thin mints, crushed them, and threw them into the keg.
