When it comes to an exceptional stout, this one comes to mind front and center. Loaded to the teeth in all categories and fitting for an end of winter review.

Pours jet black with a two finger creamy brown head. Wow, thick and chewy with a 10w-30 appearance draped across my Stone snifter. This son of a bitch looks amazing, a five in my book...

The nose is strong with fresh ground coffee leading the way followed by oatmeal, un-sweetened chocolate and raisins. The wood aroma from the oak chips adds a nice touch.

The flavor is semi-sweet with my tastebuds overwhelmed at first with a massive coffee infusion but notes of vanilla, burnt chocolate and black licorice peak through.

The body is full, oily and velvety smooth. Carbonation is soft, however the hops add a slight bitter feel and the oak chips pleasently dry my tongue. In the end, its more on the sweet side than bitter.

Espresso anyone, to say this beer smells and tastes of coffee wouldn't do it justice. Fresh ground coffee anyone?!

Terrapin Night at the Flying Saucer in Nashville. Wish it was on-tap, but won't complain about getting in it a bottle.
Labelled as "Wake n' Bake"
Totally black, opaque that no light passes through, topped by a dense, tan head. Good retention and lace stings.
Smell of freshly brewed coffee is big and bold. Basically the coffee is all you can smell.
After that you know what the taste is going to be. Rich, full bodied, a great coffee stout.
A great roasted maltbase, this would be a solid stout without the coffee.
Mouthfeel is medium pushing towards full, creamy and smooth. Long lasting finish, slightly oily texture. Alcohol warms going down.
Despite being thick and rich, it is not overly heavy, and still quite drinkable.
One dimensional, sure, but this was a very enjoyable beer. It has become my personal base line for all future coffee stouts

A friend of mine got a few of these from a friend and sent one my way. I'd never heard of Terrapin, and was shocked to learn they were not from Maryland.

The color was a deep, dark brown, with a decently dark head that rose just enough to indicate its stoutiness (yes, I made that word up).

It smells wonderful; heavy on coffee with a faint hint of chocolate.

Awesome taste, very coffee forward with little notes of oatmeal, but subtle enough to not overwhelm the palate.

I was disappointed by the mouthfeel. It didn't feel like an Imperial Stout. It wasn't bad, but unexpected. Seemed almost like a porter it was so light. It doesn't linger too much and doesn't coat your mouth like a typical Imperial Stout. I can see some non-stout fans liking this because of that, but it personally bummed me out a bit.
