22oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Specific classification: Spiced Imperial Brown Ale.

A - Pours very dark brown with a rather fragile and frothy tan head.

Aroma: A spicy mix of roasted dark malts, dark chocolate, cinnamon, and vanilla with a hint of raisins.

T - A cascade of flavors, but cinnamon and vanilla are prominent throughout. Dark chocolate appears mid-taste and, joined by milkly coffee, lingers in the aftertaste. Mildly sweet although, ultimately, balanced by some bitterness.

M - Medium/full bodied with moderate+ carbonation.

O - A fine sipping ale. Sweet enough to work better after than during a meal. While I liked the substantial vanilla and cinnamon, these are prominent enough to partially mask the underlying malts and may be too prominent for some.

A 22oz bomber released 1 time.

A - Brown, with a small amount of head, and no sticky lace. It looks like molasses. However, I give it bonus points for a ton of white sediment floating around in the glass

S - Cinnamon, vanilla, other spices. Smells outstanding.

T - Like the aroma, cinnamon and spices, but nicely well balanced. Vanilla in the aftertaste, but just the right amount. Nothing overwhelms. They all blend in together perfectly.

M - Medium body and lots of carbonation. Sizzles, with cinnamon and vanilla, oh my

O - An excellent beer! The best Terrapin Reunion yet by a long shot. Well done! Looking forward to the '13 release in a few weeks
