Stone Brewing Mint Coffee Milk Stout

What the brewers say

“We decided to take our classic brewhouse Stone Coffee Milk Stout and make our own riff by adding fresh chocolate mint and peppermint. The bright, intoxicating aromatics of the chocolate and mint emanating from this smooth-drinking, caffeinated libation are palpable.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “The sweet chocolate and strong mint aromas remind me of a Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie with light-to-moderate coffee in the background. Moderate roast sits behind the sweet aroma, with some raisin and plum esters and a touch of bacony phenolics.”

Flavor: “So much mint in this. It starts up front with some light sweetness and carries through to the finish, leaving a lingering aftertaste. The bitterness is strong, with some burnt notes, then transitions into a roast character, and finally, light coffee with some nice astringency on the finish.”

Overall: “The coffee is decent, but it could use a touch more sweetness or a tad less roast to really balance. Coffee with the mint created a flavor akin to brushing your teeth before taking a swig of coffee.”
