Who brewed the Mint Chocolate Stout, and how'd it come out?

Avatar brewed it with his brother-in-law. It was alright. I'm not sure how it was made.

The best Mint Chocolate Stout I have had was one dry hopped with mint.

Personally, I thought it was pretty horrible. It's hard enough to get a decent chocolate stout without throwing mint into the mix. It was a bit overpowering.
