"i agree with Cybercat on this one - they nailed the style, and 5 months after release seems to be perfect. nice bready aroma, some sweetness and a touch of hops and spice. Smooth, sharp but full. Alcohol evident, but pleasantly warming, not hot. This is exactly what i was hoping for!"

22oz bottle $13 at Beverage World in Ft. Oglethorp, Georgia. Alas there was no Golden ticket in my box. Dark brown color, looks like an old ale to me. Smells boozy, caramel, boozy, malty. Tastes almost exactly like North Coast Old Stock Ale in my opinion which is a very good thing. Booze in the taste, raisin, caramel, some toffee. The booziness held back drinkability a bit but this was a very good effort from Terrapin and I like the fund-raising aspect a lot. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-10-2010 20:51:54

Great! The nose is very sweet with notes of caramel, vanilla, licorice, and maybe just a touch of butter. The beer is dark brown with a small tan head. The taste is again very sweet with malty flavors, brown sugar and caramel, vanilla, and a little licorice spice in the back. The beer is full bodied, a little oily, but finishes with a nice dry bitterness for such a sweet beer. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Bomber shared by Butters at Slutfest 3, Richmond, VA, 4/21/12. Pours a clear copper color with a thin head. Decent head retention. Aroma of big sugar notes, tea, smoke and banana. The taste is toffee, brown sugar, anise and bitter hops. Medium bodied.

Bottle @ SF. Looks like murky iron water. For some reason it smells chocolaty and lemony. Tastes sweet and a little bitter. L light carbonation.

Sampled at Slutfest 3.Clear amber pou rwith ring of tan hjead. Very nice sweet malty profile. Clean at the same time. But a little syrupy on the tail. Lots of caramel, and brown surgar. but still no golden ticket :(

22 oz bottle. Dark brown body with a medium beige head. Aroma of caramel malt, toffee, dry fruit and some alcohol. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, dry fruit, brown sugar and warming alcohol. Smooth and moderate bitter, quite true to style. Fine body and the aftertaste are smooth with a pleasant hint of oxidation.

Smell is pretty damn nice. Very sweet. Caramel, Toffee, dark fruits, molasses, brown sugar and a whiff of alcohol. I was pretty hyped to try it. Ugh there is something off about the taste on first sip. It was off. But I let it warm up a bit. Ahh there we go. Totally different beer. Deep and complex. Just a lovely mixture of stuff here. Fruity, sweet. Nice amount of toffee and caramel. Dark fruits round out the taste. I’d say this could use a little aging possibly to bring the alcohol down a bit but right now it’s drinking just fine. Mouthfeel is nice. Slick and syrupy. Coats the mouth and throat. Goes down just very very nice. In the end this was a winner for me. I would of loved to get another bottle to age and see where it went. But right now it’s drinking very very nice. A winner from Terrapin and something I’d like to see them bring back down the road.
