Deep reddish copper color was majestic, and the head formation was one finger thick, but it did not last long. The smell of the beer really highlighted the chocolate, and vanilla bean, while the cinnamon was more subtle, and the coffee was a mere hint. The taste was along the similar lines, with lots of chocolate and vanilla showing up, but cinnamon was more clear mid palette, and coffee bitterness was evident in the finish. The beer also had a touch of sour cherry in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel was silky and soft, but turned a little astringent towards the finish of the sip. This was more typical of a Schmaltz offering, rather than a Terrapin one, but it was still great.

Pours a deep tawny brown with a thinner but well sustained light beige head atop.Aromas of dark roast coffee and caramel with some mild fruitiness and nutty notes.Light to medium feel for a bigger beer with low carbonation wich is good.Flavors are rich and quite sweet but not overly so,vanilla/caramel and coffee flavors with some lighter chocolate and spiced notes,the fruitiness lingers along with some drying nuttiness in the finish.Flavor packed and alot going on,a malt licker would love this beer,Iam a hophead and really enjoyed it.

Just when I was wondering when I would be able to experience another brown ale worth shouting about, this Terrapin release appears. It has an absolutely wonderful taste with just enough coffee undertones makes this a big-time keeper. I love this beer's complexity. Get it now!

22oz brown bomber with a vintage date.

Dark brown hue shows some clarity, tiny bubbled lacing stay around for a while. Chocolate syrup, cinnamon, coffee grounds, vague vanilla, raisins, hint of alcohol, & toasted bread make up the aromatic nose. Full-ish body, smooth carbonation. Cinnamon first then coffee and then chocolate, vanilla is way in the back with some fruitiness and warming alcohol. Finishes semi-dry with lingering coffee and cinnamon.

A beer for a good cause so one should grab a bottle just for that purpose, flavors work so this is most certainly worth a try.

A- dark brown with a tan head which fades quickly after pouring

S- initial hint of fresh roasted coffee followed by milk chocolate

T- Initially very sweet like vanilla, taste on the back of the tongue is a very strong black coffee flavor, after taste is that of a bar of chocolate

M- slightly creamy with a medium level of carbonation. Heavier than a brown ale on the tongue, but not as chewy as a scotch ale, etc.

O- I have had several Reunion beers dating back to 2009, and I have thoroughly enjoyed them all. This one lives up to its ingredients list, and the Jittery Joe's coffee really stands out, but is also balanced by the other flavors such as chocolate present in the beer.
