Cask at CBI on 4th March 2013. Almost black with tan ring of foam and scant lacing. Minty, vanilla and chocolate aromas. Minty with spearmint notes and rich chocolate in-mouth. Sweetness subsides in the finish to leave a bitter core. Smooth, velvet bodyful mouthfeel. Rated as a novelty beer.

On cask at Coach and Horses, Dronfield - A bit different, deep rich black body, with thick white head. Nose is straight away mint choc chip ice-cream, the taste is similar, a bit like a powdery After Eight mint... in a glass. The mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side, but even so, it was excellent. Wouldnt do more than one though.

Cask conditioned handpump Craft Beer Co N1 London 04/03/13. A black beer with a beige head. Chocolate and peppery mint in the nose. Nice bitter chocolate in the mouth. Good roasty flavours. Mint is only a tempter. I was reticent about this worried that the mint would be overpowering or wouldnt work but actually it balances nicely. Having said that it is only just hinted at. Lovely.

Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Black with a thin off-white creamy head. Has plenty of mint choc-chip in both its aroma and taste. Its pretty much the liquid version of the ice cream it is that stated!

Baiza Chocolate Mint Stout 5.5% cask at Clerkenwell. Pitch black with the perfect mint chocolate aroma which reminds me of mint chocolate chip ice cream. The smooth creamy body accentuates this feeling while the taste delivers what the nose promised: mint chocolate goodness. Wonderful.

Keg @The Hanging Bat, Edinburgh (Ratings Backlog) Pours black with a tan head. Nose of chocolate, nose really is the nose of a mint choc chip ice cream its crazy. Taste is very much the same but dark chocolate. Great beer.

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 its light, tasty and very very drinkable.
