This is the first time I have had this beer in a year. Served in a Duvel tulip glass...it's always nice to open the first one of the season and bring back all of those tasty memories from the previous batch =)

A: Pours deep black with a creamy brown head which slowly dwindles to a thin brown line.

S: I mainly smell dark roasted, bold coffee notes with a slight touch of chocolate and some caramel as well although the coffee definitely takes front stage.

T: Although there is a ton of coffee smell, the coffee note is a bit more subtle when drinking. There is a perfect balance of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, and bitterness on the finish...this beer definitely leaves a long lingering bitter chocolate taste on your tongue. Delicious!

M: Awesome! Carbonation is present but just perfect! This beer is so smooth

O: I always look forward to this beer. I would be hard pressed to find a better example of a coffee stout. Unlike FBS, I can actually have more than one of these without feeling absolutely full and sugar buzzed.

another great extra!!!! Pours from another color 12oz bottle, lovin these labels (would always trade for more Terrapin stuff). pours a blinding black color with a think off white head that only leaves a ring. smell is of coffee and oatmeal, another beer that reminds me of breakfast. The taste is chocolately and rich with a coffee finish. This beer isn't super thick like I thought it was gonna be, but it has a ncie mouthfeel and goes perfect with a kit kat bar. This beer is delicious.

A: Dark, black, smooth pour. A small, razor thin tan head. There is a quick, even lace that follows after a swivel. 


S: This beer is full of fragrance. Chocolate and coffee has the strongest presence. There is a sweet caramel and vanilla like fragrance there too. 


T: This is one impressive beer. After my first sip, I regretted that I only had few bottles left. I immediately noticed the roasted coffee beans and malt. They are the definitely the most dominating flavors. The oatmeal flavor shines toward the end. I noticed traces of vanilla, caramel too...A little hoppy at the end of the swallow.


M: light carbonation, great texture and weight, not too heavy and syrupy. 



D: One is satisfying enough. I don't really care for two in a row, particularly after a meal. This beer is, again, delicious and highly drinkable. It's a perfect dessert beer. I would love to have a cellar full of it.
