Bottle shared by pmoney. 750 ml bottle served in a FFF teku.
A: Pours a dark black color with a dark tan head forming on the pour. It recedes to a frothy ring leaving behind some soapy looking lace.
S: Dark chocolate and mint leaves on the nose. Slight roasted malts, but this is all mint and chocolate.
T: Dark chocolate and fresh mint leaves up front. Unsweetened bakers chocolate and some light roasted malts in the mid-palate. The finish takes on an artificial mint flavor, reminiscent of Colgate.
M: Medium to heavy bodied with a medium carbonation level. Slightly minty and drying finish.
O: The finish was a little too artificial for me and took the beer down a few pegs. Overall it was a well crafted beer, I just wasn’t that big of a fan.

Oily black with no head. Bit of chocolate with subtle menthol in the nose. Flavor is pretty blah. OK chocolate with hints of mint. 50belair (3682) - Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle shared by Seth. Milt chocolate chip aroma. Dark brown pour with a mocha head. Mint, milk chocolate, and bitter toasted malt notes. Impressive. Doesn’t drink like a 10%er. Above average body and mouthfeel. biggsbowler (629) - Port St. Lucie, Florida, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Bottle - pour dark black w/ brown head, little carbonation. Some mint in the nose but not overpowering plus some chocolate. Mint and chocolate in the taste. Not bad.

Sampled at a recent tasting, right before the BA 17. Wow! We had a shit ton of stouts that night but this one was definitely one of my favorites. Nice minty flavor on the back end. Very much like eating a Junior Mint, and who doesn’t like that?! beechner224 (1024) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Poured fro the bottle. Color is black with a tan head. Aroma is strong mint. Taste is mint followed by chocolate. Taste like mint chocolate ice cream to me. If you like that, you’ll like this beer. conway (2210) - - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle. Black with a tight thin tan head. Aroma is mint, almost bordering on peppermint schnapps at times, with some roasted malt. Taste is mint backed up by chocolate, as advertised. Nice roasted malt backbone to it. Boozy but not overly so. Medium mouthfeel with a moderate carb. Pretty well executed but could use a bit more chocolate to balance the mint.

Bottle. Muddy and thick with a light brown head. This literally has like a mint chocolate chip aroma, odd for a beer. Flavor is a bit odd. I’d call this a valiant effort to do something a bit different, but it comes across like bad candy to my, the finish a bit off.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 Bottle. Pours a black with a dark brown head that lasts throughout the beer and laces slightly. Aroma has a strong mint note with backing bitter chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor starts with bitter chocolate but is quickly joined by a strong mint note with a dark grain backbone.
