durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Draft from the taproom. Pours black with a rich tan head. Nose is dark chocolate and mint. Taste is big time mint and big time chocolate, but they work so well together. Mint does not come across as sharp or intrusive as it sometimes can. Great beer, especially in 5oz-at-a-time pours.

jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Draft at Jerry’s. Black with big, foamy, flotsam brown head, good lacing / Smooth, mellow, creamy nose of chocolate, mint, cream / Medium body, some chew, some initial sweetness, but with nice balance and distinct bitterness, and discernable heat on the finish / Flavors of dark roast coffee, prune, plum, chocolate, caramel, mint / Nice flavors, but body doesn’t quite stand up to the big alcohol.

Bottle at Torst. Pours black with tan head. Nose and taste of heavy mint leaf, roast chocolate, milk chocolate, cocoa and vanilla. Lots of mint up front. Medium body.

hershiser2 (3410) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2013
$16.49 for a 750ml bottle from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours almost black with a dusting of a head. Smells like a York peppermint patty. Tastes like burnt oil or that yellow cough syrup I had as a child. This was hard to get down, but got better as I drank it.

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Whew! Thick sticky deep brown pour with little to no tan head. Aroma is mint chocolate shop ice cream so props to them for hitting that I. The nose. Kind if a listerine kick to it as well. Medicinal, very minty. Finish is boozy and hot. Kind of a gimmick beer. Not terrible, but not great.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle shared by phaleslu, bottled 3/2013.. Very dark brown / black color. Good thin brown head. Splotches of lace. Awesome big mint aroma. Herbal, with a hint of dark chocolate in the aroma. Bigger body. Nice chewiness. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Bigger bitter taste, lightly herbal. Light hint of alcohol. Love the mint flavor. Awesome big minty imperial stout.

Travlr (25177) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Draft. Very dark brown color, brown head. Aroma of chocolate covered mints. Taste is big, roasty cocoa, on the sweet side for sure. Tasty.

EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 30, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2015 The aroma is indulgent with a combination of creme de menthe, dark cocoa powder, and alcohol, and the appearance fuses an opaque, viscous black color with a medium brown head that fades quickly to just a ring of the same color. The taste is quite pleasant to the tongue with its heavy umami character alongside a slight sweetness, mildly minty, and a touch of bitterness; furthermore, the palate combines a full body, soft carbonation, minty finish, and an oily texture.

TheBeerGod (6233) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle - 750mL crowned. Used-oil black with a thick, dense bubbly brown head. Aroma is Thin Mints! I love Thin Mints! Maybe a touch of roasted malt and booze but otherwise this is Thin Mints. Taste is strong chocolate mint, roasted malt, dark chocolate, cocoa and soft booze. Body is medium-full and very chewy with a dense, full, bubbly carbonation. The mint lingers and there’s mild alcohol warmth from this. Finishes as it began - more Thin Mints. There’s roasted malt, cocoa, dark chocolate and soft booze. This is quite possibly the best dessert beer I’ve ever had!

bobbyberbiglia (188) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 29, 2013
750ml Bottle A - Pours a beautiful motor oil with a one finger mocha colored head. Great retention/lacing. S - Thin Mints! T - Dark bitter chocolate, roasted malt, with a bitter hop punch. Alcohol is hidden well. M - Medium/full bodied. Mild carbonation. Chewy texture. Overpowering bitter finish with a hint of mint. O - Would liked more mint in the taste profile. Might need to sit for a while.
