Dark Ale Brewed with Cocoa Nibs, Vanilla and Cinnamon Collaboration with Shmaltz Brewing Company This year’s beer is a similar dark ale to the one we brewed for Reunion ’11. It’s  brewed with cocoa nibs from our friends at Olive and Sinclair in Nashville, vanilla, and this year cinnamon. The flavor begins with complex malt overtones and quickly gives way to the chocolate, cinnamon and vanilla. Inspired by rich mugs of Mexican hot chocolate this is going to be especially good with BBQ, Mole and Churro…maybe from your favorite local food truck?

"I want to marry this beer!" I could not stop proclaiming this.

Very sweet aroma with chocolate notes. Pours with little to no head :( but this is a great beer from a great brewery. Very strong cinnamon flavor up front with a gentle chocolate finish. I’ll be buying this one again!

Pours a dark, somewhat clear sienna with a fairly thick wheaty-tan head. Strong aroma fills the nose with malty, cinnamon, caramel and nutty notes plus a hint of wood. Flavor has a strong cinnamon and woody overtone floating atop good malty, chocolate and nutty notes plus hints of hops, caramel and horehound. Absolutely lip-smacking! Firm texture has plenty of fizz, leaving a tasty finish that has cinnamon, chocolate, nutty and caramel tones. Pity this is a one-and-done.

Pours mahogany with a small beige head. Smells of chocolate and hints of cinnamon. Taste is subtle cocoa, vanilla, and cinnamon. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Terrapin Reunion ’12 finishes with some cinnamon dryness.

Bomber bottle from neighbor Bob - Thanks! Lots of rich dark flavors. plenty of cocoa and vanilla. High marks overall and plenty of alcohol.

This 2012 Reunion beer is a delicious savory brown ale with the rich flavor of chocolate and cinnamon. Aroma is light but sweet. It really is like drinking a fine liquid chocolate!

Excellent aroma. Deep roasted chicolate with rich vanilla. Bitter finish. Lighter maple brown coloring is deceiving as this is a strong, robust beer. 2012 was a very good year for Terrapin’s Renunion ale.

An interesting combination cinnamon, vanilla and cocoa nibs. It doesn’t sound like a winner, but wow! A slight cinnamon aroma, then the taste hits you with slightly sweet vanilla cinnamon combo with a faint cocoa underpinning. Excellent!

Very sweet and indulgent flavor, it’s very different. Not a stout, not a belgian but something different.

tap at porter. this beer rules! poured a clear dark ruby brown with a large, whipped, tan head. cinnamon nose. such a unique flavor. haven’t had anything like this before. it tastes like burnt marshmallows from a campfire with a little charred ash thrown in and the perfect amount of cinnamon. really awesome stuff.
