Appearance: Oily, pitch black
Aroma: Chocolate and mint
Taste: Bittersweet chocolate, with a fairly bitter mint finish.
Palate: Heavy body, mouth coating, flat, mint provides a bit on sensation on the tongue
Overall: Good beer; I like the fact that it ends up being more bitter than sweet... avoids coming across as artificial.
750ml bottle from Vince, thanks man. Pours black with a deep tan head, very viscous. Aroma of dark chocolate, mint, coffee and light barrel. Flavor is sweet dark chocolate, black coffee, mint and some boozy oak. Full body with a thick mouth feel. Really nice beer the mint is a nice touch I hadn’t had in a beer before. A bit on the sweet side, shared between four people is perfect. 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.

$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.

Draft. Very dark brown color, brown head. Aroma of chocolate covered mints. Taste is big, roasty cocoa, on the sweet side for sure. Tasty.
