12 oz bottle shared by scotter. May 2012 on bottle. The pour is a hazed black brown, with a minimal khaki head. The aroma is mint chocolate, very much the thin mint girl scout cookie. There is a bit of roast, and general malt sweetness present as well. The taste picks up more on the the stout flavors, featuring roast char initially, dark chocolate notes, then opening up to the mint chocolate of the nose. Some alcohol heat evident in the back. The palate is medium bodied, with soft carbonation, an oily mouth-feel, and a dry alcohol finish. Nice use of the mint. Thanks for sharing this one Scott, I had wanted to try it.

Bottle from Secret Santa. A dark pour with a tan head on top that settles as a thin film. This smells like mint chocolate chip ice cream or junior mints with a dash of coffee as well as a little caramel. The flavor adds plenty of roasty ash notes to go with unsweetened dark chocolate, mocha, and mint. Slightly creamy body with a dry and bitter finish. Fortunately, the mint is not out of control but I probably wouldnt have wanted any more than the 12 oz bottle I had. Despite its heft this drinks rather smoothly. Not necessarily something Ill want to revisit too many times but this was no doubt a solid beer.

Wow this really impressed me. It was like drinking a Thin Mint cookie in a bottle but in a good way. The mint was not overpowering. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a good one. I'm a huge fan of mint chocolate stuff, so this was right up my alley. Slightly disappointed, but this is still solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ Chads house via trade with drsilverworm. Thanks! Missed out on this when it came to Colorado, so Im excited to finally try it. Pours a sweep black appearance with a creamy brown head. Mint fudge, a bit piney, thick dark cocoa aroma. Creamy, pretty thick, chocolate mint fudge, gooey brownie dessert flavor., Im surprised this isnt a smash hit. Tasty stuff.

TURDFERGUSON (4055) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown with a thin sudsy tan head and a reddish hue. First couple sniffs I get lots of clean green mint and begin to pick up a more mint chocolate note as the beer breathes and warms a bit. Buttery toffee rounds out the nose. Flavor is okay. Not as well integrated as the nose, at least at this point. Slightly astringent at first with a very vegetal-y green middle and more bitterness interspersed with sugar pockets. I was kind of afraid of this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours thick and chocolaty... darkest beer Ive ever had!! ever so slightly minty... but a bit too roasted and bitter for me....tastes good but finish is a bit harsh... a heavy stout
