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.

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...
