Poured into a chalice cup at Draft in Raleigh, NC.
A: Dark and opaque, black and unable to see light through it, as it should be for a milk stout. Very little carbonation and almost no lacing.
S: Dark chocolaty goodness, almost candy like in it's aroma. Very little or no hop profile. Mostly malt and chocolate.
T: All chocolate, with a slight bitterness that fades into sweetness. Satisfying if you have a sweet tooth, what you would expect from a chocolate stout that has a name that sounds like Yoo-Hoo.
M: Velvety and smooth, full bodied and viscous. Excellent.
O: Sweet dessert like beer that fulfills expectations that the name creates. Went surprisingly well with the hangover tots that we ordered. The rich fullness likely goes well with many fatty foods. Highly recommended.

I think mom and dad picked this up in the States at some point. Well, wherever it came from, thanks!

From a bottle into a snifter
Bottled in 2010

APPEARANCE: A black pour yields a smaller, very loose, dark brown head with lousy retention. Head vanishes leaving a splotchy wisp in its wake. Black body with medium carbonation evident. A slight wisp remains but leaves no lacing down the glass. Lousy looking head.

SMELL: Roasted malts, sweet cream and milk chocolate on the nose. Some lactose sugar and light vanilla notes, as well as touches of caramel. The milk component is definitely more dominant.

TASTE: Not as big or as impressive as the nose. Roasted malts with some milk chocolate and light lactose sweetness. Milder and dry aftertaste of roasted notes, light sweet cream and a touch of bitterness. Not all that flavorful, unfortunately, but what's there is plesant.

PALATE: Medium, lighter body with medium levels of carbonation. Creamy on the palate, smooth, does down fine and finishes slightly dry on the palate. A little light, unfortunately.

OVERALL: This was alright, but it was probably more impressive when fresh. I've had some impressive Terrapin brews, so I will gladly give this one another go if I happen to run into it. Thanks again guys.

Poured from a bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter. The pour is nearly black with a mammoth chunky light tan head and outstanding retention. On the nose I'm getting some roasted notes and some milk chocolate, but it's incredibly faint

Full body, but a thin mouthfeel to this stout. The taste is slightly sweet on the front of the palate with a nice little milky, creamy note that vanishes far too quickly on the watery mouthfeel. You definitely get some of the chocolate, but it combines with the roasted malt and hop flavors in a rather unpleasant way. The flavor is very light and a little bitter.

This beer was a bit of a disappointment. Sweet stouts can be really, really good and are often under-appreciated. Sadly, I thought this one was about average. Not good, not bad, just average. Anyone who has access to this probably has access to Duck Rabbit also, which I believe is far superior. My bottle may have been a little old, so I may have to try this again when it's fresh.

Nearly black-bodied, with a small tan head that settles slowly, and patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet and bitter chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and a fairly strong rubbing alcohol note that was a bit offputting and unexpected. Lactose goes undetected.

The flavor is less smooth and rich than expected; the booze, particularly a cheap vodka/isopropyl taste, makes an unwelcome appearance. The chocolate is more bitter than sweet; there’s a good deal of roasted malt and coffee in here as well. The overall effect isn’t terrible, but it’s not the sweet chocolate milk flavor I’d anticipated.

Medium bodied and carbonated. Decent enough, but not exceptionally smooth or creamy. Kind of let down a bit by this one, it has a good deal of acclaim and I am a big fan of Wake and Bake so I expected something a little nicer than what I got.

2011 Seasonal 12 oz. bottle poured into a Libbey teardrop stemmed porter/stout glass.

Pours a dark motor oil brown with a one finger dark tan head which dissipates fairly quickly. A strong aroma of chocolate and roasted malt on the nose. A bit of roasted malt and milk chocolate on the nose. Both flavors meld and carry throughout. Finishes smooth with just a touch of bittersweet dark chocolate and roastiness. On the lighter side of medium bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, this brew delivers through on exactly what is promised. Fairly sweet and not a brew that I would drink in multiples during the same session, but certainly excellent as a closer. Dessert won't be necessary.

A suprisingly different stout. Great chocolate and caramel hints, with a nice maltiness that is refreshing. Good creaminess, with very little after taste, and a texture that finishes smooth. I really enjoyed this beer. Would love to this beer on tap.

2011 seasonal

A- Inch-tall dark mocha head on a dark brown opaque body. Very nice head retention and some lacing left.

S- Can smell chocolate from a couple feet away! chocolate maltiness, some roast.

T- Roasty notes are subdued, this one is all about a balanced milk stout that is slightly on the sweet side. Big lacto-acidic finish, leaves sweet taste in mouth.

M- Creamy mouthfeel. Mid-low carbonation that fits well.

D/O- Very drinkable, balanced. Pleasant milk stout qualities with a great mouthfeel as a mouth pleaser. Cheers to Terrapin.
