Cask @ The Magpie Brentford. Phone rating so brief. A nice chocolate minty palate thats not too generic . Good rich bitter dry notes. An interesting and strange stout.

wimpyjoe (4909) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2015
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Black with a thin off-white creamy head. Has plenty of mint choc-chip in both its aroma and taste. Itís pretty much the liquid version of the ice cream it is that stated!

Garrold (2007) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2014
Cask. Hallamshire House, Sheffield. Very dark brown. Bubbly, thick, tan head. Dark, roast malts. Fresh mint. Spearmint. Hint of coffee grinds. Taste is mostly sweet. Some dry. Some roast bitter. Bit of treacle. Full, chewy palate. Finishes light bitter. A lot less minty than it used to be, Iím sure. And better for it.

weordie (193) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2014
Pours a dark brown, minimal head. Great scent of the chocolate mint from the pint. Taste is pleasant, slight aftertaste of the chocolate mint that is quickly replaced with a strong stout taste. Nice for one pint, couldnít have more

BeerViking (2810) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 Cask at the Magpie, deep dark brown-black with a tan head and a big, almost overwhelming, cocoa nose. Palate is dry-sweet cocoa with roasty malt, burnt bitterness and just a hint of mint. Quaffable, but OTT.

gegwilson (1607) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Keg in Tapped, Leeds. Pours pretty dark with a tan head. Plenty of chocolatey mint flavour. Like a liquid after eight. A good pudding beer.
