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.

DuffMan (9741) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2017
Bottle, shared at game night. Hearty near black with a dense brown head. Smells like a fresh box of After Eight dark mint chocolates! Richly flavoured palate that strikes the perfect balance between fresh mint, bitter cacao, and dark roast. Velvety smooth, dense, almost chewy. Just fantastic, loved it.

Level 42 Bottleshare and no Mark King in sight. Thanks to Leighton. Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Palate is smooth and has modest fine carbonation. Smooth dark chocolate laden malts, some chocolate cream. After Eight dark chocolate mint. Smooth finish leaves a nice minty linger. Works well, very drinkable.

Scopey (13309) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2016
Bottle at level 42. Cheers! It pours black with a small tan head. The aroma is sweet, sticky, big mint chocolate vibe,after eight mints, toasted brown sugar,r lasted malt and maltesers. The taste is slick, very sweet, sticky, chewy malt, toffe, millionaires shortbread, after eight mints, chocolate brownie and some warming alcohol with a slick finish. Full body and fine dry, fine carbonation and chewy mouth-feel. A bit sweet and one - dimensional, but not bad.

mgajdaczewa (1857) - Katowice, POLAND - DEC 19, 2016
W aromacie świetnie wyważone proporcje pomiędzy intensywną gorzką czekoladą, nutami słodszego kakao i miętą. W smaku jest nawet lepiej, mięta idealnie skryta w czekoladzie, ktra tu dominuje, trunek gładki, idealnie ułożony, świetnie ukryty alkohol. Świetny RIS!
