3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Bull Run - 22 oz bomber. Very dark brown leading to black pour with a long lasting sticky khaki colored head, decent lacing. Aroma has some light cinnamon notes, a touch of chocolate. Full bodied flavor, some vanilla notes, a touch of chocolate, some anise seed, cinnamon in the back end. Mouthfeel has a nice thickness to it. Passed this by many a time - these bottles all look alike.

Mmm, this is one tasty "strong ale." I’d describe this more as an interesting porter or even sweet stout though. The pour is a deep maroon w/ a thin tan head that’s leaves lacing. The aroma is a delightful blend of vanilla, cocoa, cinnamon, & coffee. The taste pulls all of these flavors together quite nicely as this is a highly drinkable beer & certainly not your typical strong ale. Quite robust! Nicely done!

Great strong ale that didn’t kick you in the face but was pleasant. The blend of dessert flavors mixed with the booze gave it an elegant and milky texture.

Very impressed with Terripans 2013. Very smooth and the combination of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and cinnamon is amazing. I would recommend this beer to all of my friends.

500ml shared at Travlrs. Filtered brown-amber. Thin oily head. Nice balance between all the sweetness. Smooth on the palate. The cinnamon and coffee, vanilla are really nice. Pleasant, well-attenuated beer. Good stuff.

Bottle, pours dark reddish brown with a small head and lots of lacing. Very malty, sweet nose. Attack is bread yeast, sugars, a bit of bitter bite on the side of the tongue. A long lingering finish. Good middle of the pack beer.

Very disappointed in this one. The description had me giddy. Vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa nibs! Yet I tasted none of these flavors. Even so this was a very bland tasting beer. Maybe next year will be better.

Bottle from wegmans. Pours brown with a large brown head that has decent retention. The aroma has big cinnamon, vanilla, and a bit of coffee. The taste has a nice cocoa, light vanilla, and the cinnamon comes in the finish . Really nice brew.
