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.

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.
