Cask at Craft Clerkenwell, Leather Lane, London, Friday 18th December 2015 Pours dark brown edging towards but not quite black. The chocolate and mint combine really well, not quite mint chocí chip well, but beery well. Smooth, mint more noticeable on the nose than in the mouth but a little creamy milk chocolate. Itís good.A7 A4 T7 P3 Ov15 3.6

Ugh, I hate mint in beers. However, thatís another prejudice utterly destroyed this festival (c.f. sorachi saison). Black, small loose head. Wowsers - after eights! Ditty taste, but a very robust porter behind it. Gently burnt. Finish a little hint of ashy burntness, but not drying. Nice drinkable palate, feels good in the mouth. Mint is very well integrated with the chocolate and the roast. Impressed.

Cask, Peterborough Beer Festival 2015. Black with a bubbly beige foam. Chocolate milkshake with dark toffee and raisins. Mint follows with a bready yeastiness. Fairly herbal and medicinal with trace banana. Dry and peppery on the finish. Good.

shoulderbroken (3479) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2015
Tap at Craft. Aroma is chocolate, cocoa, roast and mint. Taste ramps up the mint quite a bit. Like a liquid after eight. After you get used to the mint the chocolate comes back a little and itís sweet and malty. But itís all about the mint. I quite like it. Finish is very malty, barley and caramel. Very smooth and easy drinking.

Towey1989 (1574) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2015
Cask at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell. A deep brown to black colour with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, mint (Like mint choc chip ice cream), some roasted malts and slight vanilla. Taste of chocolate, mint, roasted malts, subtle coffee, some vanilla and slight raisin. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A bittersweet, mint choc chip finish with some roasted bitterness. Really well balanced between sweet mint chocolate and bitter roastiness. Like drinking a mint choc chip ice cream, smooth too.
