Nice drinkability, more so than the many other chocolate added beers out there. Sweet-bitter chocolate in a dark chocolate slightly frothy look. Rich chocolate, somewhat roasty aromas. Nicely balanced. Smooth mouthfeel. Reasonable a.b.v., satisfying.Thanks Mikegroove.
Had this again, bottle from late Autumn trip, still very nice milk stout.

Thanks to SamuelJackson45 for sending me this one!

Pours an opaque black with a 1 inch dark tan head that fades to a film on the top of the beer. Good rings of lace around the glass on the drink down. Smells of dark cocoa powder mixed in milk and roasted dark malts. Taste is of roasted dark malts, dark cocoa powder, cocoa nibs, and lactose. A medium level of carbonation makes for a bubbly but smooth mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good stout with some nice chocolate notes and my first beer from Terrapin. I am glad I got to try this one.

On cask at FireFlies in Alexandria. Poured into a pint glass.

Pours black with a single-finger head and not too much lace after the head recedes, which was quite quickly. A good swirl didn't bring much back. The nose was pretty one-dimensional with some light, sweet chocolate.

The taste brought more chocolate, which started to come out more as the brew warmed up. However, again it was pretty one dimensional. At the same time, the flavor was quite nice for what it was. Nothing over the top. As it warmed, an ever so slight roasted character came. The mouthfeel was simultaneously a bit creamy and fairly light. It worked, especially with the low alcohol. Quite sessionable and drinks pretty well.

A: The beer is jet black in color and poured with a thin tan head that quickly faded away and left delicate lacing on the surface.
S: There are light aromas of semisweet milk chocolate in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and quite rich; it also has some hints of roasted malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
D: The beer is very easy to drink; I could easily have a few of these in one sitting.

Enjoyed while at the brewery in Athens, ga. Very thin head, no lacing really. Very dark with no light getting through. Head is tan. Very nutty and though this may sound strange I am reminded of A1 steak sauce a little with this one. Flavor is also nutty with typical sweet vanilla and cream taste. Roasted malts in the background. Just te right amount of sweetness for a milk stout. Light to medium carbonation. Slightly thick in body. Sort if an average milk stout with a unique aroma.

Appearance: Pours a licorice color with a modest tan cap that leaves a lively pattern of lace

Smell: Milk chocolate with hints of roast and earthy hop

Taste: Milk chocolate, up front, with the hops adding a nice balance by mid-palate; after the swallow, the milk chocolate leads to a mellow finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: A very pleasant milk stout, with a nice finish

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.

This brew poured out as a deep brown color with a brown colored head on top. The smell of this beer reminded me of chocolate milk honestly, very sweet smelling on the nose with some lactose and chocolate all over this one. The taste of the beer is also sweet with plenty of milky chocolate flavors here. This is super smooth and creamy feeling, really interesting stuff here. Overall I felt like it was almost too much but yet I did enjoy it. I'd like to have it again to see what I think a second time around.

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.

a loal favorite again i have had on tap, bottle, and growler. reviewed from notes on tap at barleys.

A very, very nice pour here. Pitch dark, with a really nice three inches of head on the top of the glass, which all settled down very nicely with some of the best side glass lace I have seen in a very long time, very rich and full and just very nice looking.

The aroma was decent. Rich roasted malts, hints of sweetness rolled in throughout the profile here with a very nice overall presentation to it. Some notes of chocolate as it warms up as well. The flavor was more of the same. Rich roasted malts, hints of chocolate and a light bitter dryness to it, but it lacked the punch of a really good tout, not much complexity here at all. The feel was nice, full bodied with good carbonation kept it alive, and light enough to be thrown down fairly easily, in fact, rather nicel.

Overall a very solid little stout, though I have to admit I would have liked a little more depth to it, it was still very nice.

Thanks for another southern tick, Bobby.

A: The pour is dark brown in color, almost black if you really want it to be, featuring a thin off-white/tan head.

S: A mild coffee aroma, lots of roasted malts, and a mild creaminess from the milk sugar. There is actually a touch of acidity to the nose.

T: The flavor is far better. Lots of sweetness and creaminess from the lactose. A nice hearty roasted character and some hints of black cherries.

M: This one is medium in terms of body and carbonation.

D: Didn't have very high expectations from the nose, but the flavor was quite good. Not a bad milk stout.
