12floz bottle, BOD: 12.01.2016, ~$1.75 unit cost, poured into a pint glass. Near black in color and head settles to a ring. Aromas of peppermint and cocoa nibs are also found on the palate. The peppermint provides a cooling sensation, and the cocoa/coffee/dark malts add a supporting light sweetness and roast. Body is really thin, which for such a beer like this I would more. Fairly interesting nonetheless. thegreenrooster (4558) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 12, 2017
Pour is a dark black with a large tan head. Aroma is just like those girl scout thin mint cookies. Plenty of chocolate and mint. Flavor is equal parts mint and chocolate. I am not a real big fan of that green mint and chocolate chip ice cream you can get at any store but this beer does taste exactly like that so I’ll give it some props. crossovert (13908) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2017
355ml bottle. Pours a dark brown,. Aroma is mint-dominant, sort of like mint chocolate chip ice cream. Falvor follows, mint like ice cream, chocolate chip, the coffee is subdued, only adding bitterness. It isn’t too bad actually. Good, if derivative, flavor.

Non Beer Trip Beer Trip #99. 12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Ann Arbor Eisenhower. Dark brown, large foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of roasted malts, mint, chocolate. The taste is Thin Mint cookies, chocolate. Thin bodied, lingering mint. Onslow (1528) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Inky dark brown with small tan head. Aroma is mint, dark chocolate, some roasted grain and toast. Taste is creamy sweet up front, vanilla and a little raisin; mint emerges in the middle of the swallow and a nice dark chocolate and burnt toast note emerges with the mint at the end. The mint is the primary taste but is not a one-note artificial taste, but actually retains some of the herbal and bitter tones found in fresh mint or raw oil. Emerging bitterness from the roasted grains and perhaps some hops curtails the sweetness at the end of the swallow, and the very is a mild but nice lingering roasted grain bitter. I don’t get much coffee in this despite the name. Palate is ok - light enough to enjoy on a summer day. Overall this is well crafted and tasty, I liked it more than I expected I would.

Just okay...definitely had a chocolate mint thing going, but also this bottle seemed to be souring a bit. Still drinkable. drowland (9057) - Georgia, USA - JUL 6, 2016
7/6/16. 12oz bottle thanks to rdixon77! Black pour with a small khaki head. Fake mint aroma, mild chocolate. Big mint flavor, mild chocolate, slight sourness forming. Hmm. MrChopin (4305) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 10, 2016

near black, thin cream ring. Mint heavy nose, synthetic, light cream. Peppermint pattie flavor, thin sticky and sweet. Smooth, very singular, what you’d expect.
Really nice. Perfect balance of peppermint scent and flavor. Nice cocoa and a tiny coffee ending. More other flavor than coffee. Nicely done though. Not overly sweet like an ice cream. Bottle GenDV138 (7699) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Bottle at the nuplastikk returns tasting in VA. Dark brownish black. Aromas of big mint, chocolate, roasted coffee. Tastes of mint, dark and milk chocolates. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Pretty spot on for what they were going for.
