Drank from a 12 fl. oz./355 ml bottle acquired in a trade with surge1311
Vintage: 2012
Served in a snifter

The beer poured dark brown with a medium viscosity for the style. A tight, creamy, three-finger, saddle brown crown topped the liquid. Thick, drippy streaks of lacing coated the glass. Eventually, the lacing turned into spotty droplets.

Coffee notes completely dominated the nose. Super strong and potent. Roasty, French press coffee came to mind. Perhaps some deeper, earthier, coffee grounds as well. Lots of dry, husky oatiness. Some vanilla was also apparent.

Coffee was extremely prominent in the flavor profile as well. Intense, French roast coffee notes. Boatloads of deep, dark, roasted malts. Smoky and almost a touch woody. Hints of vanilla lent the beer a subtle sweetness. The finish consisted of a mix of crisp, dry oats and heavily roasted malts. The malts bordered on tasting charred and were somewhat bitter, but in a pleasant way. Some booziness came through in the finish as well.

The beer was nearly full bodied for the style. Super creamy, frothy and smooth. The oatmeal lent the mouthfeel a notable slickness.

Terrapin Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout is unquestionably the most coffee-forward beer I have ever tried. There were absolutely no subtleties in it, and I loved it that way. Non-coffee lovers would be wise to steer clear of this blissful offering.
