Chocolate Mint Stout.. looking for a recipe
Has anyone attempted this with any success?

Here you go. I did a quick HBT search and found this for you to look at.

I've tasted a few of these and MY taste buds have never thought the combination was good in a beer.

Nice in a bar but not in a beer.

Radical Brewing by Mosher has a Chocolate Mint Stout that is pretty tasty. Uses mint leaves and a lifesaver.

Thats my recipe that WortMonger posted up. It was okay. It was my first stout and my first big beer. I didn't like it but my friends did. The stout part tasted good, the mint part, well ... not really, and I could barely taste chocolate. I would use mint extract again in addition to some mint leaves. Mash lower than i did because the lactose will keep the gravity high.

Good luck and let me know how it turns out.

Attempted. Yes
Succeeded. Not at all!

In fact my attempt at a mint chocolate stout was so bad, that it is the only beer I have ever made that I dumped the entire batch down the drain. I'm still not positive what went wrong. We used Dutched Cocoa powder. But I don't think it ever fully disolved, that or the yeast had some odd reaction to it as you could kind of feel the powder in the beer. like when you make hot chocolate but didnt mix it well enough. Also, I think we used too much dried mint as the flavor was overpowering. The beer also had a sour note to it, both in taste and in smell, no idea what caused that. but the whole beer was just an abortion. I have not since tried to make another one and Im not sure I'd want to try again either.
