Looks good in the glass, almost black with a two finger head. Smell is roasted coffee and chocolate. Taste is as expected with the smell. A little thin on mouthfeel but still a very good stout.

Terrapin has certainly produced something special with this brew...

Poured from a can, it was a mesmerizing look of dark tannish color, high lighted with caramel hue. The smell was short of amazing - you can smell the coffee, the oatmeal, and a touch of booziness. The feel starts off very carbonated, but then as it warms it eases up. It has a medium to full-bodied feel that eases the overall effect of the carbonation, which is a good thing in my book. Taste was very good, though I mostly tasted the coffee and couldn't quite pull out the oatmeal notes or the booziness of the drink. Overall, it is a very good beer - I think I've had better Terrapins, but this one is certainly special.

Wow. Beautiful beer. Pours black as midnight in a coal mine. Half finger of khaki head

Dark malt and dark fruit on the nose. Nose is not as strong as expected. Smooth smelling.

Taste is bittersweet chocolate, roasted raisins, subtle coffee. Minor hop bitterness. No real hop character. A sweetness - lactose type sweetness.

Mouthfeel is wonderful. So many big stouts are too thick and syrupy. This one is about halfway between Millers Toll and Founders Breakfast stout.

The alcohol is hidden well. @9.5 percent it tastes like there is no alcohol. Just some minor warming in the stomach. Be careful - this one will sneak up on you.

Thoroughly enjoyed this. Highly recommended.
