Bottle. A- Mints, chocolate, slightly sweet. A- Black color, black liquid, brown head. T- Thin mint cookies, mint, chocolate, slightly sweet. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, complex finish. O- Let me start off my saying I hate all things mint and chocolate, thin mints, mint chip ice cream, the list goes on. This beer was like liquid thin mints, but I actually loved it! Basically just a load of mint and chocolate and creaminess. I hate these flavors but I loved this beer. I don’t know how that managed to happen. It was also beautiful. It was as black as I’ve ever seen a beer and a beautiful brown head. And a great beer for St. Patrick’s day it was.

Big hits of mint over a very chocolate base in the aroma. Dark thick black cascades as it pour with a lasting brown head. The herbal mint is carried on a rich velvet bed of cocoa. Perfect alone or with ice cream they nailed this beer.

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!

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.

DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2013
750 ml bottle from Capone’s. Pours thick and turbid deep black with 1-finger dark brown head. Nose is big mint, cacao, dark choc, roasty dark malt. Tastes smooth, rich, with a huge roasty choc malt bill, big well integrated mint, cacao, dark choc, choc syrup. Reminds me a bit of a grasshopper in flavor profile, but the huge malt bill takes center stage. This one is thick, rich, with well hidden alcohol and a great finish. Some may call this a novelty or dessert beer, but I don’t give a shit. I call it a damned good beer.

zizzybalubba (1869) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 16, 2015
On tap at The Birch, Norfolk, VA during the 43 Hours Of USA 2015. Pours black with a cinnamon brown head. Obvious aroma of peppermint with hints of chocolate. Rich, roasty taste of chocolate and espresso with what is clearly peppermint. As prominent as the peppermint is Perennial somehow makes it work wonderfully. Great beer!

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?!

arminjewell (9664) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, dark thick black pour with tan head that laces, nice looking. Aroma brought notes of nice dark chocolate, coffee, milk chocolate, mint, some cookie notes, brownie, hints of fruity notes into some spicy notes, amazingly balanced. Taste is the same, super good balance between chocolate and mint and cookie notes, nice coffee/roast, hints of dark fruit, some sweet sugars, finishing fairly dry, slightly sweet, a bit of a hint of booze but not bad at all. Creamy on the palate but carbed enough to keep it moving across the palate as well. Delicious, best of the mint chocolate stout varities I’ve had by a long shot. Dangerous for 10%.
