3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at BP Little Italy. Healthy rocky foam atop ink black. Big thin mint aroma. Flavor is dry and biting, major thin mint character. Fairly hoppy with mint accentuating it. Palate feels a little too dry for this style. Itís not really my style, "chocolate mint," but my its my wifeís favorite.

On special cask at Ballast Point! One of the greatest beers Iíve ever tasted! I canít describe! It has the aroma of a thin month jammed in your nostril and it drinks like a liquid thin mint cookie with a creamy booze flavor! Triple Epic!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap in Temecula. It pours dark brown with a khaki head. The aroma is cinnamon and cocoa. A little toast. The flavor is dark chocolate with a hint of mint. Some solid roasted malt and cookie-like sweetness behind it all. Very subtle and drinkable. Roasted, dark chocolate with light mint in the finish. Really good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Ballast Point tasting room in Little Italy. Poured a dark brown color with a thin sized off white head. You can get the thin mints, not over powering but definitely there on top of the Imperial Stout aromas and flavors. Mint not overpowering - which is good for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Pours near black with a beige head. Rich sweet chocolate malts, mild-moderate roast, and sweet chocolate lasting through the finish. The mint doesnít come out very strong, but the chocolate and sweetness does. Solid.
