750ml bottle poured into snifter. Dark black pour with thin head. Aroma has slight hints of peppermint and chocolate but not a lot of bourbon. Flavor isn’t too exiting. Very faint hints of chocolate and malt, other then that it’s somewhat bland and boring. Atom (2482) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2013
Bomber pours a dark brown/black with a thin tan head. I’ll have to agree it smells a lot like chocolate chip mint ice cream with a backing of bourbon, not in a bad way though. Wow nice taste! Earthy coffee, a hint of mint, sweet chocolate, and rounded out with vanilla and bourbon. Very well rounded and drinkable. From the aroma you’d think the mint would be overpowering but no one element is every dominate. Very drinkable, nice! I need more of this stuff. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 26, 2005
SUPERIOR FALLFEST: Black Coloring with Sandy Head. Wonderful Complex Aroma...of Chocolate, Sweet Malt, Mint with a Light Coffee and Bourbon Whiskey Notes Mixing In and Out. Roasted Coffee Notes Balancing out Sweet Malt - Chocolate and Mint Notes Most Prominant with a Slight Whiskey Background.. Overall, the Bourbon Aging Seems to Push Out the Chocolate Mint Flavors to Make it Really Creamy, Rich Chocolate/Minty Brew That’s Quite Enjoyable!

poured a deep brown with a fizzy tan head that fades. aroma was very upfront with mint, then cinnamon, oak, and chocolate. flavor was mint, watery coffee, dark roasts, and alcohol. body was thin and fizzy. I had really high hopes for this one. I just wish the base was an impy stout or something stronger. holdenn (2116) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2007
On tap at the Great Lakes Brew Fest. Pours a dark black with red hints. Aroma is grassy, lemony, bourbon with chocolate. Watery flavors, chocolate grassy. Meh.

Wow! That was my initial reaction- incredibly tastey. Makes you want to lick the entire glass inside and out after you are finished. Poured a very dark, thick black colour with a reddish tint. Head was finger sized, brown and sticky. Creamy mouthfeel is an understatement. Minty, dark chocolate and coffee notes. Faint but noticeable oak and whiskey spirit underlining the taste of this beer. Awesome! XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Had this at the All Pints North festival in Duluth, MN. Has an awesome mint chocolate chip ice cream scent, taste however was disappointing, it was rather artificial almost like mint flavored floss. Westchesterco (2047) - mclean, Virginia, USA - AUG 8, 2013
From a bottle it is brown with a slight head. The aroma is of bourbon and mint. It tastes of chocolate and mint and has. A bitter and sweet flavor that resonated on the palate mikem409 (2027) - bloomfield, Michigan, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle. Thanks Jeff
Pours black with very nice tan head. Peppermint and malt aroma. Taste is fruity not much barrel and some mint on end RAYBOY01 (2011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Oily black pour with a nose of fresh mint and java. Flavors follow pretty much a straight line...mint, coffee, chocolate, touch of the bourbon barrel. Just OK.
