On tap. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma of mint, dark chocolate. Smells like a thin mint cookie! Flavor of mint upfront, booze, bitter chocolate with a rich chocolate finish. The mint is fairly strong in the aroma and more subtle (but still present) in the flavor with lots of chocolate malt notes. Very tasty, not artificial at all.

From a sample at the Cincinnati Winter Beerfest ’15. Dark beer with a thin brown head. Chocolate nose. There is not a ton of mint in this but there is a nice Girl Scout Cookie finish. Waxy bitter chocolate with some roasted grains and some wet toast. Tasty. DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2015
On tap at Cincinnati Winter Beer Fest 2015. Hazy, very dark brown, near-black color. Thin khaki head. Loose lace. Roast malt, some brief mint, mild dark chocolate. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, light carbonation. Mild dry finish. Not as full nor thick as many stout. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet, a bit of a rough bite. Not the most enjoyable mint stout, unnecessarily rough for the listed 6%. Interesting to try, though. alexsdad06 (10805) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Draft at Cincy beerfest. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, the slightest hint of mint, not much else, pretty standard stout. drsordr (2861) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Draft pour at Cincinnati Beerfest 2015 pour opaque dark brown with minimal tan head. Nose mild roast, generic sweet malt, and hint of Andes mint. Taste all kind of flavors except mint. Mishmash of sweet malt , roast, and vegetal. Mild bitter and roast finish.

Poured on draft at Weasel Boy. Pours a darker brown with a tan head of foam that is short lived, but leaves a ring around the glass. The aroma is roasty and sweet with the mint just barely being noticeable. The mint actually comes through a little odd. I don’t know that I would be able to tell it was mint if I wasn’t already told so. The taste is roasty and herbal, the mint comes through a touch, but really plays almost no part. Probably my favorite of my trip. mikesaum (712) - Newark, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2012
On tap, dark black with thin beige head. I can’t really get anything from the aroma, just some slight roasted malts. Taste is weak chocolate, some dark fruits, weak mint, not what I was expecting. Meh Dogbrick (13764) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Sample at OH! Growlers! Tasting on 01/31/2012: The beer pours dark brown with a thin beige head that burns away fairly fast to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark mint chocolate and malt. Medium body with a sweet chocolate flavor and mint character that is more Klondike Bar than Andes Mint. Some malt as well. The finish is chocolatey with a slightly minty aftertaste. Decent overall. JaBier (8253) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Glass at Weasel Boy on 11/25/11. Dark brown pour with a very thin off-white to beige head. Aroma of milk and dark chocolates, roasted malt and subtle mint. Roasty flavor with subtle mintiness and a good amount of chocolate before a roasty finish. Was expecting the mint to be more in your face, but still a tasty stout.
