UPDATED: JAN 17, 2008 had at ABR 07. like was said IT IS UNIQUE. i liked the mint mixed in but could use more coffee and slightly LESS mint but wow it was good and refreshing for sure. will try to hunt this down again for sure.
EDIT: By some miracle of the beer gods, I stumbled upon a freshly tapped keg of this at Old Chicago in Apple valley, MN. which is nice since we drove 450 miles for growlers and when we got there, they were out.!!!! Anywho, i thought it was about as tasty as I recall. It seems to have strong mint right away that faded a bit over time. as for the coffee it too seemed to fade slightly overtime. But, the end result after it sat for ten fifteen mins to warm up a bit was really really good. Had a nice dry finish, you could taste a sweet/minty flavor but it was not overpowering, and the coffee was quite subdued almost more of a burnt/heavily toasted stout. Overall it was good. a++ badgerben (5178) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2004
Autumn Brew Review 2004. Has a very black body with zero head. The aroma definitely lets you know there is mint present, but not so much that it knocks your socks off. Good coffee and mint flavors paired well with the roasted malt. Not as heavy and thick, or as sweet, as I would have expected. My favorite from South Shore!

Pours dark brown with light head. Aroma of coffee mint and stout (in that order). Flavor matches aroma. Delicious inkubus27 (269) - highland, Indiana, USA - AUG 10, 2008
GTMW 2008. Really looked forward to trying this and wasn’t dissapointed. The aroma on this was about the same as a bowl of mint chip ice cream. Amazing. Flavor on this was good but the body was a bit too thin for my liking. Overall though this is definitely something to try if you ever have the chance. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2004
2004 Autumn Brew Review: Dark Coloring with No Head. Some Chocolate/Mint Aroma. Some Roasted Coffee and Chocolate. Mint Not as Evident as I Would Have Like, But it Was Balanced Very Well and a Wonderful Sweet Stout.

ABR ’08 - Pours a deep dark brown with a thin off-white head. The nose was strong in mint, with subtle hints of coffee, & chocolate. Came across the palate with a strong coffee but it had a very nice minty finish. Very unique I would defiantly buy this . zizzybalubba (1869) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Sampled at GTMW 2009. Black pour with a fizzy, beige head. Aroma of (surprise) coffee and mint. Flavor is (you guessed it) mostly coffee and mint but blends well with the chocolate maltiness from the stout. This is a very interesting blend and I don’t know of any other beer I have tried that uses mint. But it works. I was intrigued by the concept and pleasantly surprised by the results.

On tap at the Muddy pig. nice coffee and mint aroma (plus the usual stout suspects). Dark brown/black body with minimal head. Strong mint flavor dominates the coffee and roasted malt flavors. Good, but the bourbon aging is a real benefit to this beer as the vanilla and oak compliment the mint and coffee rather nicely. JK (6158) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 12, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2005 One of the highlights of the 2004 Autumn Beer Review. The aroma was coffee and mint. The beer is black with a tan head. the taste is coffee and mint again, just like the name says. Mint is subtle and works well in this beer. Full bodied. JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - FEB 14, 2005
Clear black color with a small tan head. Dark chocolate, mint and coffee punch the nose. Fairly full bodied. Nicely balanced mint and dark malts wondering about. Finish with a dry malt linger. A pleasant surprise. A nice winter brew.
