The gf loves Terrapin, particularly the collabs with Shmaltz, so here goes.

Dark brown pour, minimal head or lace. Smells like an overly spiced pumpkin beer, minus the pumpkin. Not particularly inviting.

A multitude of conflicting flavors greet my palate. Bitter chocolate, overwhelming cinnamon, yet the base beer seems boring and unremarkable. Flavors work against each other instead of integrating. Not impressed.

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
