Bottle shared at Bruce’s 30th Birthday Bash - CBC Clerkenwell, London. Thanks to Il Padrino. Pours dark brown with a stern, creamy beige head. Milky chocolate nose with roasted malt accents. Medium sweet flavor with some dusty malts and milk chocolate. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet finish with still more milk chocolate character, still more dusty malts, subtle roast. Decent stuff on the whole.

Pours a coffee black with a little tan head. Aromas of chocolate milk and some yeast. Taste is big time milk chocolate with some slight bittering hops, but nothing tastes artificial. Extremely drinkable stout, and one of the better offerings I’ve had from Terrapin.

3.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours stout black lots of carbonation. Slight chocolate and roasty coffee aroma. The lactose and milk flavor blended with the chocolate is very upfront with a nice roasty backbone. A really good chocolate milk stout. My first Terrapin experience and I was not disappointed.
