    This long retired porter is coming back for round two. It will be at the brewery starting tomorrow and, I'm assuming, in stores next week as it's already in bottles. If it's half as delicious as it sounds, I'm excited to try this.

    Looking forward to it.. They make some pretty good porters.

    This is apparently the "pre Moo Hoo" era beer. Moo Hoo is pretty friggin' good.

    Outstanding! I really like their MooHoo Chocolate Stout, so I'm excited for this!

    Not to sound like I'm uninterested in anything but case after case of WnB, but....

    Just give me more WnB.

    I hope this is better than the original release. Very weak on the chocolate that time around. This is no Moo-Hoo that's for sure, but one can hope!

    I'm definately up for giving this a shot, but i felt like Liquid Bliss was underwhelming :slight_frown: hope this doesnt follow in its footsteps.

    This was super chocolate-y and very tasty. Should be out in Atlanta as of today and you could get it at the brewery last week.

    At Greens and HopCity for the time being.
    Kinda curious as to whether this is gonna vanish like Liquid Bliss seemed to.

    Ale Yeah Roswell has two cases, but we're in the middle of a move, so it'll be available midweek hopefully.

    Haven't had any yet.. Still have a couple bottles of Liquid Bliss in the cellar though!

    Need to run out and get a few bombers and give it a shot.

    I have been extremely impressed recently with the Terrapin side projects (that aren't hop bombs). I look forward to this one and I bet it would be really tasty blended with some BA oak aged version (if the Gods are willing).

    Just read about Dos. Can't wait to give it a try. Bliss was very good, but liked sweet baby Jesus better

    Overall, I enjoy many of the Terrapin beers. However, I wasn't impressed with the Dos Cocoas. Not so much as a repeat purchase. It was decent beer, but that's it.

    Where are you seeing Liquid Bliss is going to be brewed again? I was under the impression that they never would due to how much of a pain it was to get the brewery peanut allergy free afterward... but I hope I'm wrong. Freaking love Liquid Bliss.

    My local kick ass beer store only got one case and they reserved a bottle for me. Picking it up today.

    I had this last night on draught at Duckworth's in Charlotte, NC. Really, really tasty. Kinda surprised by this one! :slight_smile:

    Where did you hear Liquid Bliss was coming again? That was the girlfriends favorite beer, and I've run out of bottles I stashed away for her.

    I've seen it for the past couple weeks didn't know anything about it so I just left it be, might have to try it though.

    Fairly positive you won't see Liquid Bliss again anytime remotely soon. Seems like they said numerous times, how much of a pain in the ass it is to make.

    My wife grabbed me one of these when she made a trip to Atlanta. I was disappointed cause didn't find it that good. Seems over hyped to me.

    One of my buddies helped brew this beer with Spike at Terrapin and he absolutely said that Liquid Bliss was such a pain in the a$$ that they likely won't put it out again...but you never know. That being said, with the Moo-Hoo and WnB variants coming out I'd be surprised if they put such a labor intensive beer up in the next few months with all that going on.

    Regarding Dos Cocoas, I actually went to Athens to grab this and was fairly underwhelmed. It was a great beer, but not sure I'd put this over other Side Projects for a re-brew. I never had the first version, so I can't really compare.

    Dear Terrapin,

    More Depth Charge please.

    Love,
    Everyone who has ever tried it.







    On a more related note, I had the dos cocoas on draft last week and I thought it sounds better than it actually is. It was not that good. Not bad mind you but very much lacking compared to Terrapins other dark beer efforts.

    Had Dos Cocoas on tap at two local bars near me. I enjoyed it, but then when I saw it at the store a couple of times ($7.99 for 22 oz) I didn't buy it.

    Oh my god, yes!! That was such a great beer. I wish I would have bought several bottles of it, but alas, I was young and stupid. According to a Terrapin rep, the Midnight Project series will be making a return next year, though.

    I had one not too long ago. It was pretty good, not great but pretty good.
