Single can from Lemon Tree. I just poured straight into my nonick to kick up as much foam as I could. Got a rich, thick head as a reward, like too much foam on a cappuccino. Mint dominates the nose, wouldn’t ya know, with peppermint acting truly sharp, then letting a note of chocolate in on the side. And that just feeds into the taste. As they say, no extract. I can taste the mint leaves that must have been steeped at brewing. I think for some people, it might be a little too much. But if you like Andes mints in your beer — well, this is the first time I’ve made that connection — this is worth trying for you. Really. Chocolate mint beer. Stout backing is sweet enough to handle it, with no excess roastiness or harshness. Also none of the Guinness sour quality.
Backlog rating. Can shared by Fergus at CBC CW, London. It pours a dark brown color with small beige head. Aroma is sweet dark chocolate, spearmint gum, after eight. Taste is sweet and pretty identical to liquefied after eight, chocolate and mint. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, not a fan BeerRenter76 (1013) - Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Well the idea of the flavor combo sounds good, i was hoping for a "Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie beer", nope... Aroma is menthol, faint chocolate. vanilla and with toasted malts.. Mouth is medium and slightly creamy. Flavor is about the same as the aroma, peppermint and spearmint combine to a menthol like flavor, not bad but unusual.. Overall it was just o.k., had higher expectations. davidtjm (1074) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle. Pour is black with a thin head, aroma is malty, toffee, thin. Taste is malty, thin, toffee. Nice jredmond (8283) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Can at the Half Marathon Tasting, May 2015. Don’t worry Jay, this one was terrible. Pours a deep brownish body with thin off white lacing. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with notes of earthy roast, dark chocolate malt, tobacco and lots of artificial mint and toothpaste flavor. The mint and roast are both potentially strong flavors on their own, but the balance is off in this one. blipp (9268) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Can. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Sweet thin mints, mild roasted malts, slight huskiness, and moderate sweetness. Odd, but kind of enjoyable.

12oz can from Craftshack. Pours black with a small foamy tan head. Aroma of burnt chocolate, roasted malt, and thin mint cookies. Taste of black malts, dark chocolate, toothpaste, and some sourness in the finish. hivemind (914) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Can at James’s with Andy, James, Jay. The can is black with white and gray writing and the woman on the front is white holding a plant lady. Recyclable for 5c. Spicy earthy aroma; light body with peppery notes and curbed heat. Short legs appreciated. PartyFowle (954) - - APR 16, 2015
Draft. Ebony, still and dark. No light gets through; hardly any bubbles do, either. A whisper of a cocoa-colored ring. Sourdough bread, toast, dark chocolate, and Andes mints in the nose. Just a bit more chocolate than mint. Clean and in perfect balance. the flavor leads with toast, a hint of tangy sourdough, dark chocolate and sweet mint. Not overly herbal -- more sweet, like toothpaste. Creamy medium body, good heft. A little oily. The mint is noticeable but subtle; a perfect amount. Clean, clear flavors. Like brushing your teeth with a chocolate toothbrush. Imaena (2319) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - APR 10, 2015
Draught. So this is a really minty stout. I would have this with Girl Scout Cookies or ice cream other than that think before you drink. uhclem (429) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2014
If you like to dip Peppermint Patties into stout, you will love this. The first couple of sips were novel, but that wore off pretty quickly.
