Pours black with tan head. Milk chocolate, and lots of mint. Dark chocolate, slight burnt notes and light mint. Really well done.

Bottled. Pours pitch black with chocolate covered head. Strong mint aroma that carries over with good balance. I wish it were heavier bodied because the mouthfeel is thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can courtesy of gregwilsonstl. Cheers, Greg! Pours a deep stout brown with a tan head. Nose is mint chocolate ice cream- cocoa, mint, more mint, roast, and some earth. Flavor hits with huge mint up front, cocoa in the supporting role, and some roast and dark chocolate as well. This one hits close to the mark on mint chocolate ice cream and is an enjoyable stout. Medium in body and lingering mint into the finish.

Aroma of malts but very light mint. However, the taste is mint, mint, and more mint. Too much. Not a fan. Tap at brewery.

Andes mint. Tastes like how it should. I need one of these next to Perennial 17. Really tasty, Im glad it isnt imperial. A thicker version would be interesting. Right Brain, I wish you had a brewpub in STL! Thx Erin!

Can. Pours black. Aroma and taste are roasted malts, chocolate, and a mint aftertaste.

The aroma is pretty bland, non-descriptive a hint of malt - caramel. Pours black with tan head mostly lasting, excellent lacing. The taste is bitter. The body is medium, the texture thin, the carbonation flat and the finish bitter. It almost tastes stale, flat - Not a fan.

This is one of my favorite beers I've tried in a long time. You can smell the mint and taste just like the cookie so if toylike Girl Scout cookies I highly recommend this stout.

12oz can- very good color with brown head. Amazing minty nose with chocolate scent. Like the eponymous thin mints. Good chocolate start with mint and then a medicinal finish. Not too great.

Can given to me by a friend. Black pour with a thick light brown head. Aroma of mint, dark roast and light chocolate. Malty flavor giving way to cool mint and chocolate before a roasty finish.

Can. I could use a little more cocoa in the nose -- the mint is too overpowering and a little too toothpasty. The flavor, too, is a bit weak, lacking the roasted goodness to back up the mint. That additive is perfectly done, though, with just the right amount of cooling, refreshing mintiness lingering after each sip. Add some more dark malt to this stout and youd have a beer worthy of a merit badge.
