Nice drinkability, more so than the many other chocolate added beers out there. Sweet-bitter chocolate in a dark chocolate slightly frothy look. Rich chocolate, somewhat roasty aromas. Nicely balanced. Smooth mouthfeel. Reasonable a.b.v., satisfying.Thanks Mikegroove.
Had this again, bottle from late Autumn trip, still very nice milk stout.

Enjoyed while at the brewery in Athens, ga. Very thin head, no lacing really. Very dark with no light getting through. Head is tan. Very nutty and though this may sound strange I am reminded of A1 steak sauce a little with this one. Flavor is also nutty with typical sweet vanilla and cream taste. Roasted malts in the background. Just te right amount of sweetness for a milk stout. Light to medium carbonation. Slightly thick in body. Sort if an average milk stout with a unique aroma.

Thanks to SamuelJackson45 for sending me this one!

Pours an opaque black with a 1 inch dark tan head that fades to a film on the top of the beer. Good rings of lace around the glass on the drink down. Smells of dark cocoa powder mixed in milk and roasted dark malts. Taste is of roasted dark malts, dark cocoa powder, cocoa nibs, and lactose. A medium level of carbonation makes for a bubbly but smooth mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good stout with some nice chocolate notes and my first beer from Terrapin. I am glad I got to try this one.

what i like the most about this one is its silky mouthfeel. its not overly viscous or anything, but it just glides down, satin soft on the palate, the lactose obviously doing its job here. i get less chocolate in the flavor than i expected, and certainly less than other chocolate milks stouts (odells lugene comes to mind). the stout itself is awesome though, minimal roast bitterness because its all tempered by the milk sugar, and a sturdy bakers chocolate flavor arising mid palate. its so creamy feeling, i love that part. i could stand a little more sweet milk chocolate in here, but by virtue of its subtlety, i can drink a lot more of it, because its never sweet, it never feels like dessert. there are a lot of neat variants of this, some in barrels, that i am real keen to try now. this is one of the breweries highest on my list of wishing they distributed in colorado. yet to have a miss from terrapin.

This brew poured out as a deep brown color with a brown colored head on top. The smell of this beer reminded me of chocolate milk honestly, very sweet smelling on the nose with some lactose and chocolate all over this one. The taste of the beer is also sweet with plenty of milky chocolate flavors here. This is super smooth and creamy feeling, really interesting stuff here. Overall I felt like it was almost too much but yet I did enjoy it. I'd like to have it again to see what I think a second time around.

A: The beer is jet black in color and poured with a thin tan head that quickly faded away and left delicate lacing on the surface.
S: There are light aromas of semisweet milk chocolate in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and quite rich; it also has some hints of roasted malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
D: The beer is very easy to drink; I could easily have a few of these in one sitting.

With chocolate, coffee, and heavy cream at the forefront, this beer leads a flavorful charge but with medium-full flavors and textures for an even and smooth drinkability.

The beer pours a dark brown hue with perhaps a modest haze that's difficult to assess because of the darkness. Formitalbe head formation leads to sturdy retention and clinging lace- all reinforcing the beer's character and quality.

Aromas of cocoa, molasass, walnuts, and cream all mix in a somewhat grainy scent. With no esters, phenolics, or off aromas, the beer is simple and pure with the classic Milk Stout profile.

Flavors of caramel/molasass start the sweeter start with a mix of heavy cream, coffee, cocoa, and nuttiness to follow. Perhaps with a the balance of the beer tilting toward the chocolaty portions, the milk chocolate flavors take a slight lead in the taste. Low on hops, the beer's hop profile offers balance and maybe a mild earthy taste without interference with the silky, chocolate taste.

Creamy and full up front, the beer releases its carbonation slowly and evently toward a cocoa powder and grainy-sweet finish that never really dries, but provides a lingering chocolate and nutty linger.

A very nice Milk Stout that pushes the chocolate malts without over-doing it. With a dash of experiment and a dose of Terrapin identity, the beer holds firm to the parameters of Milk Stouts.

Acquired at a local bottle shop last week. Expectations are high; I loved Wake N Bake. Seasonal 2012. 12 fl oz brown glass bottle with green standard pressure cap served into a Mitchells of Lancaster flared stem-tulip in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live.

Served cold, straight from the fridge, and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a 2.5 finger tan colour head. Lovely cream. Good thickness. Good (~4-5 minute) retention. Body colour is a dark solid black; not quite a jet black. No yeast particles are visible; opaque (both nontransparent and non-translucent). No bubble show. Light even lacing as the head recedes. Head is fluffy and soft. Appealing across the board. Good for the style, if expected. Can't wait to drink it.

Sm: Cocoa, light coffee, chocolate malt, oats, brown sugar, dark malts, unrefined sugar, and some subtle backgrounded roast. A lovely aroma. Fantastic for the style. Brown sugar is dominant. Not getting any lactose from the aroma. No yeast character or alcohol is detectable. Very inviting. Moderate in strength. Some cream. Great overall.

T: Mmm. Lovely milk chocolate/hot cocoa complements a brilliantly executed dark & chocolate malt body with brown and unrefined sugars present throughout. No yeast character or alcohol comes through. Not getting any lactose. Some subtle buried roast caters to my own personal tastes quite nicely. Cream. Cocoa notes are fantastic, with definite cocoa powder character alongside the deep evocative cocoa nibs. Fantastic build for the style and excellent balance. Really having this one. Complex yet subtle. Good depth of flavour. Very impressive. Not at all too sweet. Any hop presence is minimal.

Mf: Creamy, smooth, and wet. Good carbonation. Good thickness. Lightly coarse to coax out the flavours; I think this trait emerges from the unrefined sugars. Good presence on the palate. Light and easy to drink. Not harsh or sharp. I'd stop short of calling it refreshing, but it's damn well executed.

Dr: Extremely drinkable. It's just a damn good example of the style. Terrapin's slowly winning me over after a couple initial misses. Maybe they just do stouts well and that's it? I'd definitely have this one again. Seems like a great winter seasonal. I'd buy this by the 6 pack, for sure. Quite impressed by it. I'd recommend it to friends. Would love to try it on-draught. Probably ages decently; I wouldn't recommend more than a year or two.

B+
