In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


Stone Brewing Mint Coffee Milk Stout

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.”
