The beer pours a dark tan that dissipates quickly. The beer itself is a deep black. Blacker than a black hole. Blacker than the abyss. Blacker than the Devil's soul. The beer is a black so deep that light cannot escape it. It also has a slight dark brown tinge despite the blackness.

The beer smell has very strong coffee, chocolate, and oatmeal smell. The beer has a mix of a chocolate chip cookie smell and a chocolate syrup kind of smell that results from the oatmeal and chocolate notes mixing with the sharp coffee notes. The coffee notes tend to come off pretty strong but the smell that really lingers is the oatmeal chocolate cookie smell.

The taste has the same strong coffee notes and strong chocolate and oatmeal notes. The coffee notes are strong, bitter, and dark. However, the chocolate and oatmeal notes, while noticeable under the coffee, are strongest in the lingering aftertaste.

The mouthfeel is surprisingly medium bodied on the heavier side for a beer of this caliber. The carbonation gives a little too much texture and is a little high for my taste. Other than that the beer is a little thick and feels pretty good.

Overall, this beer was fantastic and I'm definitely picking up a four-pack after tasting this beer. I only wish Terrapin's other offerings were as phenomenal as this one.

Excellent! Pours a dark black color. Smells of a strong coffee and taste of it too. Not getting any real oatmeal but who cares. LOL

The most fragrant, flavorful, and delicious stout around. Most of these reviews encompass what I would say about the beer's profile so I won't be redundant.
