Pours a near opaque mahogany color with a small, tan head that leaves little chunks of lacing.

Smells of deep roasted malts with some mild sweetness.

Tastes of the deep roasted malts with some hoppy notes. Malts lead off with bitter chocolate, molasses, and espresso. Oats have a presence with their mild flavor, but also with their typical smoothness. Hops add in the end and blend with the roasted bitterness, but do have a bit of grassy and citrus notes.

Mouthfeel is medium-full with a smooth amount of carbonation.

Overall, this is quite good, but doesn't quite keep pace with the bigger name imperial stouts.

On-tap at the Thirsty Monk in Asheville on 5/28/10

A - Pitch black with a huge, foamy chocolate-mousse head. Nice!

S - Ummm...coffee! Roasted chocolate, toasted oats, whiff of vanilla.

T - Roasted coffee. Bitter chocolate and roasted malt, vanilla.

M - Medium-heavy bodied, creamy & smooth. Coats the palate.

D - Easy drinkability. Could have a couple in one sitting, despite the ABV. This is my favorite Terrapin beer. Is it one-dimensional?
Sure, but when the coffee is this delicious I don't mind!

A - Pours a beautiful oil-colored black with a full brown head on top that keeps its retention on the glass with each sip

S - Dark chocolate, dark coffee, hops, caramel, one of the best selling beers I have come across

T - The taste of coffee isn't too overwhelming, but it is noticable. The malts and caramel linger after each sip. The dark chocolate on the tongue is perfect.

M - Smooth taste, no biting taste of alcohol. The coffee aftertaste makes me forget I'm drinking a stout and not a cup of Wake & Bake coffee.

D - This beer is wonderful. Perfect for an after-dinner drink. While the rest of the family enjoys a cup of joe, I think I'll grab one of these.

Good job, Terrapin. Another fine product

Another goody that Raul got as an extra in a trade - shout out to the beer gods.

After drain pouring the swill that is Peruvian Morning, Raul needed a pick me up. And like a hot and fresh shower after waking up next to a hog that you pulled the night before, this thang perked up Raul's senses and he was feeling good again.

Subtle coffee and oatmeal textures all around, but perfectly so. So like hoping out of the shower and telling the pig to take a hike, this thang was a necessary wonder.
