4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Comes out of the tap looking a lot like a well-poured Guinness - a deep, warm sable with a thick, fine-bubbled tan head that leaves heavy lacing. Robust aroma has notes of quality coffee and caramel with hints of semi-sweet chocolate and horehound. Delightful flavor is very Guinness-like, roast malt and coffee notes plus subtle tones of caramel, molasses, horehound and licorice. Velvety smooth texture has good body and fizz - not quite as good as Guinness, but still firm. Well done, Terrapin.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2013 Draft at Coasters Elizabeth City, NC This was the best beer of the month. After golf we stopped at Coasters for a beer. This stout was amazing. The stout poured like a Guinness deep black liquid with a very thick creamy fine bubble head. This stout laced all the way down the glass. The aroma was of roasted malt and caramel malts. The velvety texture of the stout was as smooth as any I have ever had. The medium body stout had average carbonation. The flavor was Guinness-like, roast malt and coffee notes with licorice. I think this is equal or better than Guinness. We never wanted the beer to end. I hope to find more of this winner.

Roast coffee and malt in the nose. Black with a dense foamy beige cap. Roast bitterness predominates. Incredibly smooth a silky medium body from the nitro tap with a dry roast finish.

Draft at Taco Mac Sandy Springs. Pours black with a half inch of khaki foam. This one’s served on nitro so there’s a lot of carbonation. Nice roasted malt on the nose. Lots of roast on the tongue and finishes crisp and clean. It’s not quite Guinness but its close.

This beer tastes more like an imperial stout than an irish stout, but is a great beer for any stout lover!

Cask draught. Pours a near black color with a moderate tan head. Nose is quite dry with a lot of roasting to it. Taste is also quite dry and slightly toasty, though I don’t get the roasting in the taste. Feels very light. Not bad.
