It's dark-brown to black with a creamy brown head. The overwhelming flavor is that of dark roasted coffee with hints of chocolate and toffee. Not too much of alcohol taste despite a high gravity.

As I've mentioned before, my wife Lauren is pregnant (with my child). She's about 12 weeks along at this point, and since she's not yet showing we wanted to take one last little vacation, just the two of us. We made our way down to coast to Jekyll Island, GA and stayed at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel, a really nice turn-of-the-last-century hotel with charm and style.
Vacations aren't really my thing, but being married to Lauren I understand they are necessary. I usually have a good time anyway, but to sweeten the deal for me, Lauren usually finds a pub to take me to wherever we go. This trip she took me to Vincent's Pub on the hotel grounds. It's a tiny little place (its 2 rooms couldn't accommodate more than 20 people) with an 8 foot bar, 1 tap, and 18 beers by the bottle. The atmosphere here is very cool, they have autographed photos of past Masters winners and towels from past Ryder's Cup winners (dried sweat and all) framed all over the place. The beer selection includes a couple offerings from Terrapin Beer Company, a Georgia brewery.
I ordered a Terrapin Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout. The bartender felt the need to warn me that it was an $8 bottle of beer (she seemed to have PTSD from a previous patron's response to the bill), but it was worth every penny. It's dark-brown to black with a creamy brown head. The overwhelming flavor is that of dark roasted coffee with hints of chocolate and toffee. Not too much of alcohol taste despite a high gravity. Epic. Delicious. I wish I had one right now.

Bottle shared by Curran. Thanks man!

Pours a thin looking watery black, with a small quarter inch head, and not much lacing.

Smells incredibly strongly of nutty roasted coffee, with roasted malt, and baker's chocolate.

This has one of the strongest coffee flavors in a stout that I've ever had, but it's also nicely integrated, as well. Creamy chocolate and vanilla flavor- slightly bitter chocolate chip flavor, with Hershey's syrup, a cookies and cream flavor, and a very small amount of hop bitterness.

This one is medium bodied, but I wish it was a little thicker. Low carbonation, creamy, very smooth mouthfeel.

A real classic that I'm glad I'm finally getting to try for the 1st time.
