Bottle... Pours dark brown with a small, fizzy, khaki-colored head. The nose features dark chocolate and mint – think “After Eight Mint Chocolate Thins.” Medium-bodied and watery with nearly expired carbonation. The flavor is a touch carbonic and burnt, offering a blend of bitter charcoal and sweet, icy-crisp peppermint. This beer is so very thin; the mint actually saves it. Watery, cooling finish.

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2014 Bottle from beerman6686. Pours dark brown tan head. Nose and taste of mint chocolate chip, light chocolate roast, mint. Lighter medium body. dmac (6471) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Bomber shared by jtclockwork. Poured an okay looking blackish body, medium with thinner edges, small to average foamy deep beige head. Aroma is not good, notes of over the top chocolate chip mint girl scout cookie, alcohol, wet mint leaves, bad chocolate. Flavor is far better, mint is very apparent but calmed down from aroma, chocolate cookie, burnt malts, earthiness. Growing on me, except for the aroma.

From the March 2014 Pittsburgh Ratebeer gathering. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy brown head that faded quickly and left decent lacing. The aroma was sweetish chocolate, a bit of anise and vague mint. The flavor was a bit roasty with mint, chocolate and almost an Oreo presence. Medium length cocoa and mint finish. Medium body and somewhat creamy. Odd but decent. Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 5, 2014
The crazy thing abotu this one is im not even a big mint fan. This one poured a dark brown to black with a beige head. Aroma was of straight dark and milk chocolate with mild to medium mint. Flavor was similar, but a bit more intense on the mint, very well balanced, the chocolate last for a long time, very velvety and huge flavor for being lower abv. Diamond in the rough for sure.

On tap at a the brewery. Highlight of my day! This beer pours a deep brown black with a medium chocolate brown head. Aroma of mint and chocolate. Taste is sweet but crisp and easy to drink. Medium bodied with a medium carb. What a standout beer for Timber Creek. Can’t wait to try it again. MrBunn (2848) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Growler. Pours a deep brown with a thin head and aromas that at first are straight chocolate and cream. As it warms the peppermint starts to come out a bit and the flavor seems to follow suite. The first few sips are chocolate dominated with just a perfect little hint of peppermint, but as it warms, the peppermint becomes more and more pronounced and maybe a little abrasive at times. That said, this is a huge improvement over other stouts I have had with mint and I quite enjoyed this beer.
