Craft Islington. Cask. Opaque dark brown beer, small bubbly tan head. Light palate, smooth with fine carbonation. Lovely nose of After Eight mint chocolates. Nice light chocolate with well judges and well integrated mint. Finishes smooth and minty! My favourite of the Thornbridge beers showcased tonight. Could easily have been a mess but it’s light, tasty and very very drinkable.

Cask at CBC Islington, London. Big thanks to Jack for the leftovers! Pours deep brown with a fine, creamy beige head. Moderate chocolate and mint leaf in the nose. Light sweet flavor with more minty cocoa, very light dirt. Light bodied with fine carbonation. A bit of menthol cooling in the finish, with further mint chocolate, mellow roast, low earthy bitterness, dirt, cocoa. Really nice mint integration here.

Cask at Craft Beer Islington, 06/03/13. Mid black with a frothy tan head that retains well. Nose is mint choc chip ice cream, vanilla, dark malts, touch of wood, dark chocolate behind the mint. Taste comprises roast malt, dark chocolate, mint, slight lactic notes. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth and massaging on the palate, dryish finish. Cracking stuff!

Cask at Craft Islington. Tatses just like mint choc chip ice cream. Bit powdery on choc. Tastes nice but I would struggle with a pint

Ugh, I hate mint in beers. However, that’s another prejudice utterly destroyed this festival (c.f. sorachi saison). Black, small loose head. Wowsers - after eights! Ditty taste, but a very robust porter behind it. Gently burnt. Finish a little hint of ashy burntness, but not drying. Nice drinkable palate, feels good in the mouth. Mint is very well integrated with the chocolate and the roast. Impressed.
