3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks promising, and it is always nice to imbibe for a good cause. Dark and foamy pour, with a sizzling head. Smells like chocolate and yeast - yeasty chocolate? It tastes malty and earthy, with plenty of chocolate and a mildly astringent finish. Pretty dry and well-balanced - goes down easy for a big beer. Nice.

Just like everything else from schmaltz, this beer tastes muddy, old, dusty, and unfocused. I donttaste any of the listedingredients, I taste prunes. I couldn’t’t finish my pour, sorry.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 1/12/12 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Midtown. Pours a muddy dark brown with a thick beige head that slowly recedes to fairly thick lace, leaving a ton of residue along the inside of the glass. The nose is full of toasted cocoa nibs and vanilla, with additional chocolate and caramel malt, and maybe a hint of cinnamon. The flavor is the same with sweet chocolate and vanilla up front, moving to the toasted and roasted cocoa nibs, and some chili pepper spice starting to kick in. The body is full with a creamy texture, average, but very smooth carbonation, and a long finish that starts off with some vanilla and cocoa, but ultimately finishes with pretty intense chili pepper burn on the back of my throat and belly.

Bottle. Reminded me a little of the Jewbalations but not as strong. Dark purple/black color smells of raisins, toffee and cocoa nibs. Taste is the same. Nothing specially out of the ordinary, but not bad.

Bottle picked up at SL.... Dark pour decent little mocha colored head.... Funky aroma of some hot spices, chilly and chocolate. Kind of a unique taste.. Sweet chocolate, little malt, some spices... Medium body: Decent but very forgetable. Meh.....

This is one hellofa reunion. Skor bars reunite with mild milky coffee resulting in a massive strong armed off spring rife with dessert beer potential. Watch it. Those chili peppers aren’t apparent in the flavor, but they’ll creep up on you 3/4 through the glass. A juggernaut. May I have another SIR!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours light brown and a white head. Nose is dusty chocolate, slight roasted malts, hint of vanilla and chilli peppers. Flavor is sweet chocolate malt with vanilla and lots a pepper in the back end and finish. Kind of bland and boring with no body.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz. Pours a deep dark black/brown, but does let a small amount of light through. Tan head fads rather quickly to merely a thin ring. The nose is certainly the chocolate and some roasted malts with some sugary notes, but a little on the thin side. The taste is sweet dark roasted malts with chocolate and I am picking up a bit of the vanilla mixed in. The chilis are adding a bit of flare and hits the tongue like a bit of spice. Overall, this is a nice offering by Terrapin, but I thought it was a bit thin on packing their normally punch. In saying that, I would certainly take another quickly after finishing this one.
