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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2013 750mL bottle. Pours an opaque, sticky brown black, little head -- more of an espresso colored film than anything. Nose is mint and chocolate, not quite a York peppermint paddy, but reminiscent. Mouth is front loaded with mint, cocoa, dark roast, coffee, bittersweet, the sweet leaning heavily into the finish, accompanied by some ABV warmth. Still not sure about these minted beers (second one I’ve tried). This one was bit too minty though and the first beer in a LOOONG time that I couldn’t finish. pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2013
Taster pour sampled at the source... Pours deeper than fantastic voyage with a thicker feel to it based on appearance alone. The top was crowned with thin wispy khaki film that rests on top... Mint chocolate nose, no surprise. Smooth like an Andes mint or thin mint with a mild roast on the backend... Flavors are more of the same as expected. Strong chocolate mint note with a lasting bitterness on the backend. Medium bodied with semi-lively carbonation touch of grit on the late consistency. A touch of booze on the backend. Really nice flavor. Enjoyed. Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Pours very dark unclear black with a big creamy deep caramel head. The aroma brings roasted malts, and some sweetened and lightly mint coffee, maybe even some smoke or peat in there. Flavor brings some roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and the mint is light, and balanced just right which other breweries have had trouble with. The body is not very creamy, but thick and decent enough. Doesn’t taste at all like 10%, but definitely beautifully warming as described.

Tap @ Max’s. Pours clear black with a medium, creamy tan head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is mint, chocolate and roast malt with prunes and figs. Flavor is heavy mint, dark malt, light hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. sonnycheeba (5973) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Tap. Pours deep, dark brown with thick, creamy tan head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is heavy thin mint cookies and hardly any other notes can come through. Flavor carries the same thin mint notes from the aroma, but also provides some earthy hops, coffee, and dark fruit; dry, bitter finish. Medium/full body and low carbonation.
