Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Terrapin pint glass

A: Oh so black-black as night, real clean/smooth pour, half inch caramel colored head that stayed for a little while, light lacing that dissipated quickly

S: Not even half way through pouring the coffee comes out very strong, chocolate and toffee are not as prominent but definitely there towards the end

T: This was a gift from a friend and I thought for sure we had hyped it up too much, not at all. The taste was everything I wanted/hoped for! Again coffee right out of the gate and awesome malt characteristics, oats and chocolate with a lighter coffee flavor on the finish

M: Thick, but not too thick. There's a great creaminess to it

O: New to stouts but from what I've heard/ read this is one of the best items out of Terrapin to date!

Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass

A - poured a nice dark black with a nice brown head. The head turns into a lace pretty quick.

Smell- roast. Rich coffee with a dark roastiness. A hint of chocolate and a few burnt notes. smells a little watery as well. strange.

Taste- a lot of coffee. It feels like the taste separates into three different sections where the coffee in upfront with a little chocolate and oatmeal on the back end, and then water; straight up water taste after it goes down.

Mouthfeel- smooth without very much of a carbonated taste. Very mild even with a 9% abv. very thing however, I wish it was a little bit thicker being an imperial stout

Overall- It was good and i would recommend it to people. The biggest dislike I had with this brew was the watery smell and taste and the thin mouth feel.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

A: Black as night, smooth pour, small dark brown head that dissipated quickly

S: Got some Coffee and Malt, but this beer really didn't give much in the aroma department

T: Tastes divine, I got coffee bitterness and good malts, hell of a flavor all the way through.

M: Oats give it a very creamy, but not too thick feel, very pleasant

O: I think this is right up there neck and neck with Founders Breakfast in my book. Will definitely be a Fall/Winter purchase.

12oz bottle from Dopplelbockulus – Thanks Charley!
Notes taken 11-30-13 with my Sierra Nevada Balloon Glass

First time with this one…

A: Dark chocolate brown, not quite black even once collected in the glass. Looks dense and murky with not much head production. Very still with only a mere wisp of dark khaki that slides out to a collar with ease. Some oily legs paint the glass ever so slightly leaving behind only a few dots. A more aggressive pour yielded some better results here.

S: Dense with dark coffee roast and a touch of molasses. I get further into some toasted oats and other sweetened black grains with hints of brewers licorice as well. Really nice with some mild alcohol presence.

T: Black coffee roast with a higher than expected level of hoppy bitters. Nothing acrid but has a nice peppery hit. Blackened malts with toasted oat cereal, molasses, bakers chocolate, and cherry tobacco. Fairly robust and a touch sticky sweet with some alcohol intensity. Finishes up with some earthy minerals. Very nice coffee infused roast character here.

M: Semi thick body and definitely leaning on the heavier side but with a smooth and creamy consistency that gives a much lighter impression. Fairly bitter with some mild alcohol heat and sticky slickness on the finish.

D: Probably my favorite Terrapin brew thus far. Everything else I have tried from there has been a bit of a letdown for me. This is nice rich and roasty with good java character. Would accept as an extra anytime.
