Served at Tyler's Tap Room in Apex, NC
Whao! This arrived at the table in a standard pint glass boasting a modest head. The head quickly dissipated to a ring. No lacing to speak of. And then the sniff - it was like straight up coffee!
The first pull was interesting. I took a nice long pull and let it wash around for a second. Again, Whoa! This is the first time I have experienced a 'coffee' beer that seemed to me to be more coffee than beer. It was just short of carbonated espresso. If you let it settle out on your tongue, you can pull out some lighter hits of malt in there, but this one is definitely about the coffee.
One thing that I found slightly distracting was a slickness in the mouthfeel. I don't know where it came from but it was clearly present. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it seemed a little out of place somehow.
If you like coffee, this one is for you. It was a bit much for me, but my wife had one too and she absolutely raved about it. Extreme brewing? I don't know, but this one is a coffee lover's dream.

On tap at Kickbacks. Big stout aroma. A sipper: with wine character, fruitiness, and coconut. The coconut throws me off a bit, though others like it. Black, little head, this one was aged a while.
Decent mouthfeel. I have to have this in the winter in front of a fireplace. As a cask, would throw off the carbonation and be easier and smoother to go down.

Wow, first time have this wonderful stout from Terrapin and what a cool fun coffee stout it is.
Pours very dark which appears thick, somewhat like oil or old gas station coffee. Had to splash the last bit to get some head. Head was carmel in color with darkened highlights on the top sprinkled about and measured about one and half fingers.
Overwhelming coffee aroma like espresso or dark chocolate.
Obvious stout with strong dark malt but then a bit more complex with lots of coffee and cocoa notes. If you go deeper you can taste oatmeal and oak
Drinks smooth, full body, high alcohol seems hidden but similar to your morning joe one or two should do.
After taste is a bit noticeable, think red wine or pipe smoke. With a big boy stout I expect that comes with the Terrapitory.
Great beer and I look forward to having again
