look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Murky brown body with a scant white head. Little retention.
S: Rich cinnamon and cocoa aromas stand out along with vanilla, and sweet brown malt to a lesser extent. It all works together nicely.
T: Wow. Cinnamon flavor is extremely intense. Most of the other flavors seem to get lost in a sweetish brown malt base and thunderous cinnamon flavor which carries all the way through the finish. Somewhat of a one-dimensional flavor. As the tastebuds become dulled to the cinnamon, the sweetish brown malt and vanilla become apparent, capped by a woody, slightly bitter finish. Still, too one-dimensional.
M: medium to light body with somewhat low carbonation.

Enjoyable beer, but could be improved on. The cinnamon flavor really drowns out some of the additions that are more noticeable in the aroma. I would put it in the “good, but one pint is plenty” category.

22oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Specific classification: Spiced Imperial Brown Ale.

A - Pours very dark brown with a rather fragile and frothy tan head.

Aroma: A spicy mix of roasted dark malts, dark chocolate, cinnamon, and vanilla with a hint of raisins.

T - A cascade of flavors, but cinnamon and vanilla are prominent throughout. Dark chocolate appears mid-taste and, joined by milkly coffee, lingers in the aftertaste. Mildly sweet although, ultimately, balanced by some bitterness.

M - Medium/full bodied with moderate+ carbonation.

O - A fine sipping ale. Sweet enough to work better after than during a meal. While I liked the substantial vanilla and cinnamon, these are prominent enough to partially mask the underlying malts and may be too prominent for some.

A 22oz bomber released 1 time.

A - Brown, with a small amount of head, and no sticky lace. It looks like molasses. However, I give it bonus points for a ton of white sediment floating around in the glass

S - Cinnamon, vanilla, other spices. Smells outstanding.

T - Like the aroma, cinnamon and spices, but nicely well balanced. Vanilla in the aftertaste, but just the right amount. Nothing overwhelms. They all blend in together perfectly.

M - Medium body and lots of carbonation. Sizzles, with cinnamon and vanilla, oh my

O - An excellent beer! The best Terrapin Reunion yet by a long shot. Well done! Looking forward to the '13 release in a few weeks
