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.

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.

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.

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.

Standard Six-Pack - $8.99 at Uncle Jacks Spirits in Canton, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours an inky-looking, black body with a tall, churning, dark tan-colored head.
Smell: Roasted barley scent with flourishes of Breakfast Blend coffee, chocolate ganache, caramel, and nuts. Dash of half-and-half. A lone minced prune. There is ample chocolate on the nose, but it seems mainly reserved for the flavor.
Taste: Well roasted malts, with noted black coffee tones and sweet, sugary caramel accents and a splash of wholesome whole milk followed by a big dollop of Smucker's Chocolate Fudge. Undercurrent of dark fruitiness. What bitterness is present seems to be coming primarily from the roasty mix of malts. Smooth, dark chocolate and cream stirred up into coffee finish. As I'm sitting here, in between typing up this quick snippet, chatting TheLibrarianGirl via AIM, and downloading music, the chocolate is really riding out well into the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Near-full mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. Nicely velvety mouthfeel.
Drinkability: I dug this one, I can definitely see myself springing for a second six-pack. Plenty of chocolate presence though nowhere near as in-your-face as Southern Tier's Choklat. Yeah, it's no Depth Charge, but Moo-Hoo is good in its own right.

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.

On tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Greensboro.Poured into a standard pint glass a pretty much opaque black with a thinner deep mocha colored head atop.Roasty aromas with coffee,and bitter chocolate playing a large role,I gotta say this was quite boozy on the palate for the abv.,quite a sweet alcohol zip in the finish.Roasted nicely along with a nice creamy texture to the feel,the alcohol sweetness and bitter chocolate round out the palate.A pretty solid sweet stout although again ,its a bit boozy in my opinion.

Served in a Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.
Thanks to whartontallboy for this bottle!
Frankly, I can't tell if this beer's trying to evoke some happiness (woo-hoo) or sadness (boo-hoo). I knew I should've learned Bovine... Until then, though, I guess I'll just drink it in ignorance. It pours a deep black-brown topped by a finger of tan foam. The nose comprises coffee, cocoa powder, light char, and a heaping helping of roasted malts. The taste initially focuses on that same char and some strong coffee; then it moves into a strangely strong bitterness that sorta finds itself winged by an almost berry-like flavor (it could have just been my tongue adjusting to the pain); then, finally, some smooth, sweet milk chocolate and roasted malts come in, sweeping my embattled 'buds off their feet (if they have feet...). Subsequent sips show a marked decrease in that sharp bitterness, but it never truly drops away, hurting the overall taste all the way. The body is a heavy-leaning medium (he's gaining weight, but few would really use the word "fat" to describe him), with a light carbonation and a fairly smooth feel. Overall, the unbalanced flavors are highly detrimental here: As much as I want to continue to drink it, there's more of a "I need to finish this horrid movie just to see what happens" kind of atmosphere in my brain. A bit of a downer, for sure.
