12oz undated can (presumably 2018 version like all the six packs in the store, so 4 months old) poured into a Spiegelau stout glass at fridge temp 9.4% ABV. The beer pours truly black with abundant light brown head. The head slowly settles to a nice cap and leaves a complete spotty lacing. The aroma is muted coffee and dark roasted malt. The taste is semisweet chocolate and coffee with a medium to heavy roast driven bitterness. The mouthfeel is full bodied with less than medium carbonation and a semi dry finish. No sign of the ABV in the taste or aroma. Overall, excellent. After checking the Terrapin website, this is a November release. Enjoyable and very well crafted. but I'm sure it's better fresher (if you want the coffee to pop.)

Very nice head production and fantastic retention and lacing. Brew is very dark and quite attractive.

Aroma is absolutely stuffed to the gills with coffee. In fact, you really need to dig deep to find the tones of brown sugar, caramel, toffee, and roast.

Flavor more or less follows; waves and waves of coffee flavor, not unlike drinking a carbonated glass of cold coffee. Earthy and bitter, with dark chocolate, pine, light char, and a touch of dark fruit.

Creamy and smooth on the palate. Almost chewy.

12 ounce can into tulip glass, 2018 vintage. Pours opaque dark brown/black color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky tan head with awesome retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big nutty dark roasted coffee, milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, vanilla, cream, toasted oats, and dark/brown bread; with lighter notes of molasses, licorice, raisin, fig, date, smoke, charcoal, wood, herbal, pepper, pine, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malts, coffee, and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of huge nutty dark roasted coffee, milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, vanilla, cream, toasted oats, and dark/brown bread; with lighter notes of molasses, licorice, raisin, fig, date, smoke, charcoal, wood, herbal, pepper, pine, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness. Light pine, woody, herbal, spicy hop; and roast, charred, coffee bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of dark roasted coffee, milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, vanilla, cream, toasted oats, dark/brown bread, molasses, licorice, dark fruit, smoke, charcoal, wood, herbal, pepper, pine, and yeast/roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malts, coffee, and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; with an awesome roast/hop bitter/sweet balance; and no cloying, acrid, astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering hop/char bitterness. Medium carbonation and fairly full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/velvety/bready, and fairly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is fantastic. Minimal warming alcohol for 9.4%. Overall this is a fantastic imperial coffee oatmeal stout. All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roast/bready malts, coffee, and light-moderate earthy hop/fruity yeast flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to drink for the ABV with the mellowly bitter/drying finish. Not overly bitter/charred. Amazingly rich malts and balanced fruity/nutty coffee complexity; with nice earthy hop presence/balance against sweetness. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on English base style example as expected.

Smooth stout, excellent value for the money. Pours black, with thin copper head. Not too thin and mid carbonation, strong coffee taste dominates and lingers after sipping.

Great looking Stout. Tast a bit chemical probably due to the alcohol content. Not Guinness for sure.
