(12oz bottle courtesy of drowland!). Pours black with tan head. Aroma of chocolate, licorice, and coffee. Taste is initally sourish with the sweetness following up and finishing with a little roastiness. A decent beer-thought it would be sweeter and have more chocolate though.

Black pour with nice tan head. Super smooth, not at all dry. Also not overly sweet. Perfectly balanced, you get chocolate notes, a bit of malt and a great full body beer. Really enjoyable, worth picking up a whole six pack of this! Really a great chocolate milk stout for someone who doesn’t like it too dry or too sweet! Yum

bubbleflubber (1833) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Oh wow, what a nice offering here! Pours the deepest mahogany, almost black, into the glass with a deep brown head that diminishes quickly, leaving trace lace. The nose is of milk chocolate and roasts. Flavors have a lot of dark chocolate, bittersweet and unsweetened chocolate bark, roasted coffee beans and finishes with a lightly smoked milk chocolate. The mouthfeel is very smooth with ever-so-slightly elevated carbonation levels for activity. This feels like a chocolate covered coffee bean in a glass! It really hit the spot and would have again graciously anytime!

DalzAle (1984) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle. Dark black pour, cookie colored head and a mellow vanilla/sweet milk chocolate aroma. Mouthfeel is oddly effervescent, although has a light roasted malt and mellow sweet chocolate flavor and some creamy lactose on the finish. Not bad, I’m but this bottle may have had some slight infection. Would love to get another bottle and rerate.

12 oz. bottle via trade with smith4498 - Pours a dark brown color with a 1/2 finger thick tan head. Light lacing. Has kinda of an odd chocolate aroma with light esters and a hint of smoke. Flavor is caramel malt and chocolate. Medium body. A nice beer. Thanks Jason.

A nice stout with a strong roasted cocoa presence. Creamy yet malty with hints of smoke and bitterness.

TheBeerGod (5254) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Bottle. Black pour with a dense, frothy brown head. Pleasing cocoa and dark chocolate laden aroma. Roasted malt and light coffee come through as well. Dark chocolate and cocoa make up the bulk of the taste as well with more roasted malt and cream-and-sugar-sweetened coffee come through. Body is medium with a soft and creamy carbonation. Ends with more big chocolate and cocoa notes, and roasted malt. Very tasty! Excellent session beer!

I poured a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. This is the kind of in-between beer that could go in the "herb and veg" category or the sweet stout category, and I mean that in a good way. The nose is rich with caramel and even a hint of bourbon, presumably from the chocolate oils. These oils also limit the beer’s head and carbonation, so those expecting a Guinness with a widget will be disappointed. The flavor is roasty, rich, and robust, with a bit more bite than you might expect given the smoothing effect of lactose sugars although, again, this may reflect the presence of the chocolate. Combined with the hopping, the chocolate also gives it a long dry finish. Overall, a nice offering from the local yokels.

12 oz bottle from Jonathan Ron Brielle. Poured a good looking black body with an average sized light brown frothy head. Aroma is lightly sweet dry chocolate sort of like a dried out Tootsie Roll, toasted brown bread, grassy hops and some chocolate covered oranges. Rather full bodied with lively carbonation and a slightly chalky feel. Flavor is toasted malts, slightly chocolate powder, some seltzer and more toast along with some milk. Ahh pretty good but I was expecting more of a chocolate aroma/flavor.

12oz bottle from grape & gourmet. pours black with a one-finger, creamy, khaki head and nice lacing. aroma is very nice, straightforward as expected, with dark chocolate, milk chocolate, malt balls, and hints of lactose sugar with subtle coffee as it warms. flavor is tasty as well with sweet, milk chocolate, slightly sour lactose sugar, nuts, and light coffee with a mildly metallic, bitter finish. palate is medium bodied, smooth, and nicely carbonated. overall, a tasty sweet stout from terrapin.
