Capa (2031) - Manama, - NOV 13, 2012
Dark with a brown head. Aroma is minty, chocolate, and light roasted malts. Medium bodied. Flavor is much like a Girl Scout Thin Mint. Chocoalte, minty, light roasted malts, and a bit of toast. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer and could happily put a few down in an evening. Sure, itís a gimmick, but itís one that worked quite well, IMO.

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

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.

Bottle from unknown shop. Pours black with a half inch khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the bottle. Big mint on the nose with faint chocolate. Massive mint on the tongue as well with the chocolate flavor more expressed on the finish. Solid.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Aroma - a lot of pleasant aromas here, chocolate, mint - (much like Girl Scoutís Thin Mints) ~ nice and sweet Appearance - dark brown/black body; opaque liquid; head is huge and beautiful about 2 1/2" brown head ~ that slowly subsides (also nitrogen look when it pours); great lacing all the way down the glass - great looking beer. Taste - roastier than I would have guessed based on the aroma; chocolately, and some subdued mint. Sweet, but also a little roast bitterness - not much though Palate - body is medium; texture is kind of thin for a stout; carbonation is average; and the finish is roast and medium in length a little bitter, but not too much. Again, as Iíve said before, I am in love with this brewery. I canít say enough good things.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2014
On tap at the Knick. The smell is like Andes Candies chocolate mints. That is all. Dark black opaque with thin cocoa-tan lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Tastes like Andes Candies. I think this is the first minty beer Iíve tried. Interesting. Light hop bitter finish with lingering sweet mint flavor. OK, but I couldnít drink a lot of this.

kramer (5107) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Tap. Pours a clear dark brown body under a small fizzy light brown head. The nose is pretty awesome, smells exactly like a box of Girl Scout thin mint cookies. Just a little big of roastiness makes it past the mint, but thereís plenty of chocolate cookie in here. The flavor mimics the cookies pretty dam well too. A nice restrained but notable mint flavor over a chocolaty and roasty malt. Finishes with a lingering chocolate cookie note. Medium bodied with a watery texture and soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty damn awesome Stout. Really well done flavorings that donít overwhelm, but donít get lost either.

This beer comes as advertised, the mint and the chocolate are evident and pair well together for a good dessert beer.

Bottle from my 100th trade. Pours black with brown head. Nose and taste of peppermint, chocolate mint candies, earthy bitter malt, chocolate chip mint ice cream soda float and vanilla. Medium body.

On tap at Capones 2013 Black Friday event. Dark brown, almost black, with a creamy tan head. Roasted malt and chocolate mint liquor. High carbonation and moderate body, sweet, more chocolate chip mint ice cream on the palate. Could smell this forever but not sure I would drink too much again.
