look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a snifter.

The Terrapin Reunion Belgian Scotch Ale pours a coffee-colored, slightly transluscent brown into the glass forming a very thin edge of white head that stays only on the edge of the glass. There are only tiny whisps of lacing appear after drinking which eventually disappear.

The beer smells of brown sugar and cinnamon and Belgian yeasty funk. Lots and lots of malt. It's quite nice.

The beer tastes of malty goodness surrounded by hints of that cinnamon and spice as well as brown sugar. Mingled into it all is that Belgian funk, present but not overpowering?

This beer has a light-medium, medium body, overall lighter than I expected. The carbonation is good and the Belgian finish is long, I just wish the beer were a little heavier.

Overall I like the beer. A great malty goodness of a scotch ale. It has it's faults, but I would drink this beer again. My girlfriend likes it too. Support the institute for Myeloma Bone and Cancer Research by trying it for yourself.

not sure where i got this...pretty sure i picked it up in NC a while back...but when my personal glass whale showed up today...i needed a terrapin beer stat and "a beer for hope" sounded perfect. enjoyed from a 22 oz terrapin oversized snifter.

a - brew filled the massive glass and poured a ruby purple with a finger of bubbly cream colored head that bubbled away leaving a thin patchy skin of bubbles on the surface. spotty and streaky lacing clung to the glass.

s - fairly malty with some nuttiness and grape. subtle but to style.

t - as the nose suggested, classic scotch ale flavorings of nuts and grapes. malt dominated with no sign of any hops. there is definitely a glazing of oxidation and the flavor carries a bit of a tin vibe, but i quickly became adjusted to it. big caramel.

m - medium bodied, but chewy. almost winter warmer feeling.

o - overall, nice scotch ale. nothing mind blowing, but very true to style and enjoyable. the bottle i have is beginning to show some age (though i never had this fresh), it feels like it is still holding well and should be fine for a while.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a snifter glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains dark fruits, bourbon, vanilla, caramelized malts, Belgian yeast and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel dark fruit, bourbon and vanilla. Then some breadiness comes in from a hearty malt character and Belgian yeast. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: A little crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, good kick, decent variation of style, it’s a decent beer to drink if you want something slightly different.
