3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Craft Beer Co, Islington. Retains the subtle bitterness of a stout with a dark chocolate that’s more apparent then the mint.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask-conditioned at the Gryphon, Bristol 22/4/2016. Near black, with a decent, off-white, head. Plain chocolate, roasted malts and some slightly jarring ’After Eight’ mint character in the finish. Fine.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned at The Gryphon, Bristol. Dark brown with cream head. Slightly weird this one, certainly there is a chocolate hit, sweet and smooth but then a chemical note, presumably the mint element, I wasn’t too keen on that part. Don’t think I would return to this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: sweet milk chocolate, caramel, mint, After Eight chocolates. Appearance: clear black, small, frothy, beige head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: After Eight, mint, light toasted malts, a touch watery, dry, bitter finish. Overall: interesting Sweet Stout, a touch too intense on the mint chocolate for my taste. Pint at CASK Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sampled from cask @ Thornbridge Pub Den Bosch. Dark brown to black color, small brown head. Smell and taste are indeed mint, pretty watery and thin with slight stout hints. Don’t like it, not my thing at all.

Pours black with flat head. Aroma of milk chocolate, vanilla, light light menthol. Taste is initially slightly minty followed by a milk chocolate sweet finish. Body is a bit too light but otherwise creamy and smooth.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Hare and Billet, Blackheath. Dark brown pour with a beige head. Mint chocolate matchmakers aroma and taste- which is no bad thing as I like mint chocolate matchmakers. Nice combination, works very well.

Pint in the rake. A pint of mint chocolate. Surprisingly pleasant with no overpowering elements. Consumed with relish.
