cracked one open thats been in the bottle for 2 weeks. was worried and skeptical after bottling day taste but everything is rounding out nicely. the aroma is strong of mint- no vegetal flavors. thin tan creamy head- the supposed oils in cocoa powder were not a problem. when you taste it the mint hits you right up front, followed by a slight chocolate that mixes with it, then they both fade to more of a generic stout but the mint lingers on to the finish. great recipe, cant wait to see how the flavors develop. my only concern was a slightly 1 dimensional character due to my use of safale us 05, its too clean and will rebrew this with a more appropriate strain of yeast.

I brewed this yesterday. My digital thermometer was WAY out of wack. I don't have a clue what my mash temp was. The rest if the brew was uneventful. My OG was 1.052.
It has been in the fermenter for ~24 hours and its looking great. The krausen looks like toxic swamp sludge, but the beer looks very chocolatey.
I used only 4.5 oz cocoa powder and 10 celestial seasoning peppermint tea bags. The bitter cocoa flavor was prominent and the minty tingle was noticable.
I have high hopes for this beer.

I have no patience for bottle conditioning. This spent 13 days in my closet after 2 weeks fermenting.

It very green, but I think it will be brilliant in 2-3 months. There's no head retention, but great lacing.

The mint tingle makes a cameo appearance and the cocoa flavor is the star and slightly bitter. I am please with thus brew.
