Picked up a four pack of this in Atlanta to share with the Michiana Coalition of the Drinking back in South Bend.
Gotta love the label. I always like it when reptiles can cook and wear clothes.
Looks very impressive when poured. Deep opaque black/brown with an awesome dense head. Bubbles rise very slowly. Nose is dark chocolate and malts. Taste is intense oats and malts, with coffee grounds and a nice charred smoky malts flavor. Mouthfeel is thick, and drinkability is good. Best turtle-themed beer I've had.

Poured a solid lack even when held to the light.

Roasted coffee along with faint hops on the nose.

The mouthfeel of this beer has to be one of the most thick beers Ive ever had. Very chewy.

The taste is of a smooth roasty stout with lots of chocolate and coffee notes.

This is a pretty tasty beer and am glad I got the chance to try it!

Very excited to taste and post a review of one of the best know coffee stouts in America. Many thanks to bullet bill for this rare opportunity

A- a massive black hole of java Joe engulfs my glass with an espresso creamy head of foam lingering and adding to the look. An immediate parallel connects to an iced mocha coffee. Nice.

S- an apocalypse of black coffee beans ripping through with some slight cream/sugar participating in this coffee experience. Heavy duty black coffee theme with some brown sugar and toasty malt. As simple as this... Most black coffee scent I have ever come across

T- ridiculously analogous to an iced coffee with all the flavor you would want. Sweet mocha flavor mingles with the coffee beans to put forth a wicked coffee stout. The best coffee stout I have ever had

M- creamy and coating with flavor. Nor to mention the carbonation keeps the integrity of the stout intact! Amazing!!!

O- best ever. There are a ton of great brews on the market that exhibit the properties of a cup of coffee. Terrapin went out and slayed the precedent with their own offering. Other breweries take warning.... This is where the bar is set when it comes to a great coffee beer

Poured into a pint glass from the bottle, the stout was dark in color with a reddish hue to it. Stouts normally do not have such a color unless heavy concentrations of fruit as added. Based on that, I am not really sure what accounts for the color. A fairly substantial mocha head was present, which quickly dissolved. Lacing remained around the cylinder of the glass. Aroma was a little on the faint side, but had a smooth malty quality. In the initial taste, one detects a smooth chocolate taste with notes of tart cherry, vanilla, black licorice. The stout is noticeably malty, but there is so much more. When one considers a coffee-like backbone, there is so much going on here. In the aftertaste, one gets dark chocolate taking over for the sweet chocolate. To accompany the aftertaste is a pleasant warming sensation. This is a well structured and diverse stout. I would certainly do this one again.

Review of a fresh can; number 2 out of the 6 pack.
A-Poured into a snifter, this beer is black with a finger of dense dark tan head that recedes quickly to a thin layer with a ton of stickiness.
S-Big aromas of dark chocolate, some caramel notes with a medium roast coffee whiff.
T-Chocolately malt dominates, not acrid like some big stouts.
M-This beer really shines in the body. Nice smoothness. No alcohol bite. Quick finish. Makes this a remarkable easier drinker. Impressive with a 9%+ brew.
O-This beer reminds me a lot of another coffee oatmeal stout that is often in my fridge-Founders Breakfast Stout. Great cold weather or breakfast beer!

The 12-ounce bottle sports label art of a spatula-wielding terrapin waking and baking (cookies). It's obviously WAY past 4:20 as dawn breaks and his coffee perks in Label Land, and the Terp bides his time joyfully plowing the froth off an in-hand brewski. I'm guessing by the shades covering his eyes and the smirk on his face that he's daydreaming, perhaps of the 'special' brownies he's whipping up next?

At any rate, off comes the bottle top and out comes the brew, a matte-ebony lightsucking beauty with a thin cap of fine mocha-brown foam atop. Drippy, quickly-deforming rings and swatches slide down the sides of my Terrapin-brand shaker pint glass.

The smell is smoky-acrid and pungently-sweet with dark malts aplenty and French roast coffee.

The taste is richly malty with layers of caramels burnt to differing degrees, powdery dark chocolate, and oily espresso crema. A light vegetal hoppiness supplements burnt malt bitterness in counterbalancing a rising mocha sweetness. A thin, aromatic flavor of vanilla pops up in the aftertaste, as does a silky twang of oaty graininess that intensifies as the drink warms.

The drink is fullish in body with soft, creamy feel. Extremely light carbonation lends a silkiness to the drink, and just a touch of belly-warming reminds the drinker of the sturdy alcohol content so masterfully hidden in the flavor profile.
