3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours very dark, pitch black. 2 finger mocha colored head with decent retention.
Smell is light but first you’ll pick up some roasted barley, small coffee ground, sweetness from the chocolate and milk notes. Nice aroma.
Taste is pretty much more of the same but the sweetness that is noted in the aroma takes a little bit more presidence. Dark chocolate, cocoa, and lactose up front. A small bitterness from the coffee taste sits on the tongue. Overall a nice tasting stout. Just wanted a little more ummpphh!
Mouthfeel is very smooth and silky. A little bit on the lighter side of medium bodied but still nic

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample from bottle at 2012 Columbia World Beer Festival. Rich, dark chocolate roasted malt. Tastes like woody, roasted malt chocolate milk, true to form. Maybe a bit thin but otherwise quite good.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 120z bottle purchased at The BeerHive in Pittsburgh. Odd aromas lofting off an incredibly sized head remind the taster of burnt liver. Second thought is spoiled lactose but not so. Thankfully, this flavor does not impart itself to the unique and richly chocolate taste. On the thin size for gravity and body, but no compromises on flavor. If you’re a chocolate fan and/or a milk stout lover, you should investigate.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This has no real negative qualities but lacks any real aspects that make it outstanding. A nice creamy chocolate taste and mild malt. Not too hoppy and a little thin. But it works for what it is

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma has some chocolate but not as much as I wanted. It does have burnt malt and coffee. The appearance is dark brown with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall a good beer to drink but way to watery and thin.

Nice beer. Tried it our local Beerfest. What you expect from TerrPin. Well crafted chocolate stout that doesn’t sit too heavy or overdo the chocolate flavoring

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Drank this one late so I need to rerate with better notes, because I recall really liking it. Maltball and flat milk goodness. Chocolate, malt, and lightly creamy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a deep black with an of white head. Aroma of creamy chocolate, roasted malts, and a sugar like sweetness. The flavor is similar with the chocolate dominating and the strong presence of cream. A fun and interesting beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Picked this up at Inari Wines in Bristol, VA. Since Terrapin pulled out of NE TN this is the closest place to get it.
Pours jet black with a thin head that quickly fades to a ring around the side of the glass.
Smells of chocolate along with some roasted malt.
The milk chocolate is quite up front in the flavor with some roasted malt falling in behind. Lactose sweetness is quite present as well giving this beer a chocolate milk quality. There is a slight bitterness to balance out the sweetness.
Overall this is a very nice beer. The sweetness never does become cloying and the chocolate is very nice.

It’s a really nice beer. It has the sweetness from the lactose and the chocolate from the malts, but there is some lingering roast, burgeoning on coffee. It’s heavy and really good!
