On tap at The Cove in York, PA. Pours a very very dark brown with a nice tan head.Initial impression is roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and dark malts. Mouthfeel is thin for the style; carbonation is light. Alcohol is extraordinarily well hidden. Finish is dark chocolate with a lingering bitterness. Not bad but not my favorite for the style.

Poured from a can to a glass tumbler, this beer has a wonderful aroma that has massive coffee and chocolate mixed with a hint of some type of grain (sorry not that good at knowing what each grain smells like). It pours a deep black color with a little less than a finger of mil chocolate colored foam that leaves a nice lacing on the glass after drinking. The huge coffee and chocolate flavor is great and I think I even get a hint of caramel in there as well. Beautifully put together for sure. It is a nice and think brew, coating the palate nicely and leaving you with a nice warm and fuzzy feeling, with a bit of burn at the end. As a fan of the Original Guinness Extra Stout, this beer hits the spot for sure. At this point, I cannot find any con's to this beer at all, though with an ABV of 9.4%, I am sure that after a few pints I could be writing a mad essay about how good it is. Highly recommended!

12 oz can poured into a snifter.

Black in color with a pilowy mocha half finger head that sticks around for a bit. A nice film is left after the head exits.

Huge dark roast coffee, chocolate, oats and faint hints of burnt caramel fill the nose.

Taste mimics the nose. The coffee bitterness is strong but is well balanced by the chocolate and caramel. Finishes slightly dry with some nice soft bitterness that never builds, just balances.

Super smooth mouthfeel with spot on carbonation. Very dangerous given the high ABV.

This one is a winner. The best Terrapin beer I have had by far. Not much to complain about. A pleasure to drink and will be looking for more in the very near future. Highly recommended.

L Dark brown espresso color. Nice mocha colored 1 finger head on a draft pour. Beautiful lacing clinging to bthe glass.

S Roasted malt, coffee, hint of smoke and chocolate.

T Delicious. Starts with roasted malt and semi sweet chocolate, the middle adds some espresso, bakers chocolate, leather, tobacco and some smokey goodness. Finish is all of the above with a lingering bitter chocolate and a touch of caramel.

F Smooth and silky with light carbonation medium bodied but not as thick and chewy as Would like for a stout of this caliber.

O Darn good. Nice melding of flavor profiles with a well concealed ABV. If it was a little more thick and chewy I would rate it higher.

Very nice beer enjoyed on tap. Dark, almost black color with very minimal head. Some nice lacing that lingered throughout. Smells faintly of rich coffee, hints at what’s to come. Nice tastes of deep dark roast coffee, chocolate, malt and faint hints of bitterness. Very mild carbonation with a smooth mouthfeel and clean finish. Alcohol taste is deceivingly hidden. A very tasty, rich, decadent beer.

9.4%??? I had to read that off the can several times because I can't believe it by drinking it, great job hiding the alcohol. It pours a thick black with no transparency whatsoever, little to no head. You can definitely smell the coffee beans. The taste is this beer's strong point, I'm not even a big coffee drinker but I sincerely enjoyed this beer. Unfortunately the price is a bit high compared to some other quality beers so my final rating is a bit lower than I would rate it otherwise. Still an excellent 4.25/5...

WNB Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout Terrapin Beer Company 9.4% ABV

Look: pitch black, dark tan head, lots of lacing
smell: coffee, roasted malts
Taste: coffee, dark malts, roasty bitterness, warming
feel: medium body
Overall: It tastes like a good solid stout and the booze is hidden well for 9 %. There is no throat burn on this one. I don't taste oatmeal, or chocolate(as some stouts). It is a pretty good stout with a heavy punch. I would have it again. I had this one from a can in a six pack.

Very slick dark black color with a tall brown head of 3 fingers.

Aroma of Hershey's syrup, raw cookie dough, coffee grounds, light pepper, faint blood.

Flavor has a nice balance of coffee and chocolate (more on the raw cocoa nib side) but leans more towards coffee. Slight metallic presence throughout but not too bad. Some slight black pepper and fudge collide together in the background. Hot alcohol suspends the black pepper back up to the back of the throat after the swallow. A conflicted beer between delicacy and harsh acidity. It's neither a coffee lovers' beer or a chocolate lovers' beer. It's basically the worst of each, but if you like both, it's probably more than tolerable. I personally think it's a marginal-to-okay beer.

Feel is creamy and rich with malt thickness, but also has a thinning out due to hot alcohol which you can also feel. Some roast dryness appears on the finish with more alcohol heat (like icy hot in the throat).

Overall, not a bad beer, just not a great one. Highly regarded, and I can see why as some folks could really get on board with this. For me personally I'd rather have something completely chocolate or completely coffee, not bipolar between the two and not showcasing either one in its own respective spot on the palate.

Solid black color
Body is definitely above average,a creamy thick feel
Aroma is mixed grains, espresso beans,a little bakers chocolate as well as a small amount of dark fruit. There's a bitter bite that lingers a while but not unpleasant. Overall a really solid beer that I would get again, a very solid stout
