Thanks to Chris (spycow) for sharing this brew. Served in a Russian River tulip glass.

A - Pours with a finger of tan foam that settles to a thin ring and some patchy film, but minimal lace. Dark brown body that is lighter at the fringes.

S - Smell is very strange. Tar, alcohol, and dark chocolate, and very little lactose character at all.

T - Taste is more in line with my expectations. Straight-up lactose sugar, milk chocolate, and some faint roast and coffee as well. Very sweet, but on point for the style.

M - Smooth, Nestle Quik texture. Lower carbonation that is style-appropriate. Pretty enjoyable.

D - Too sweet to drink a lot of this one. Glad they put this one in 12oz bottles as it'd be hard to kill a bomber with anything less than a few friends without getting diabetes. Weird smell is also unpleasant, but if you hold your nose this is a pretty solid brew.

With chocolate, coffee, and heavy cream at the forefront, this beer leads a flavorful charge but with medium-full flavors and textures for an even and smooth drinkability.

The beer pours a dark brown hue with perhaps a modest haze that's difficult to assess because of the darkness. Formitalbe head formation leads to sturdy retention and clinging lace- all reinforcing the beer's character and quality.

Aromas of cocoa, molasass, walnuts, and cream all mix in a somewhat grainy scent. With no esters, phenolics, or off aromas, the beer is simple and pure with the classic Milk Stout profile.

Flavors of caramel/molasass start the sweeter start with a mix of heavy cream, coffee, cocoa, and nuttiness to follow. Perhaps with a the balance of the beer tilting toward the chocolaty portions, the milk chocolate flavors take a slight lead in the taste. Low on hops, the beer's hop profile offers balance and maybe a mild earthy taste without interference with the silky, chocolate taste.

Creamy and full up front, the beer releases its carbonation slowly and evently toward a cocoa powder and grainy-sweet finish that never really dries, but provides a lingering chocolate and nutty linger.

A very nice Milk Stout that pushes the chocolate malts without over-doing it. With a dash of experiment and a dose of Terrapin identity, the beer holds firm to the parameters of Milk Stouts.

pours dark brown, almost black in color. kind of smells and tastes like your normal milk stouts. Not hoppy at all, creamy tasting. Very enjoyable drink

what i like the most about this one is its silky mouthfeel. its not overly viscous or anything, but it just glides down, satin soft on the palate, the lactose obviously doing its job here. i get less chocolate in the flavor than i expected, and certainly less than other chocolate milks stouts (odells lugene comes to mind). the stout itself is awesome though, minimal roast bitterness because its all tempered by the milk sugar, and a sturdy bakers chocolate flavor arising mid palate. its so creamy feeling, i love that part. i could stand a little more sweet milk chocolate in here, but by virtue of its subtlety, i can drink a lot more of it, because its never sweet, it never feels like dessert. there are a lot of neat variants of this, some in barrels, that i am real keen to try now. this is one of the breweries highest on my list of wishing they distributed in colorado. yet to have a miss from terrapin.
