Iíve really been enjoying Terrapins side projects and this may be my favorite so far. 22 oz. poured into a snifter. Black in color and completely opaque with a rather small tan head. Smells of chocolate, coffee, and malty sweetness. The taste has a huge roasty beginning, with a mocha latte middle, and finished with nice chocolate tones with a touch of alcohol. This beer was very tastey however not the most amazing impy Iíve ever had.

22 ounce from Bruisin Ales. Big chocolate stout. Really big. Bold flavors. Big body. One of the better Side Projects, for sure.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Brian. Iíve been cellaring this one for about 9 months. Inky brown, thick tan head that retains beautifully. Aroma and flavor are both very chocolatey with some espresso, cream, oats (I know this is not an oatmeal impy, but I kept hitting that flavor note). Nice hoppy finish. Full bodied with a silky mouthfeel. Very nice.

Have pretty much enjoyed all the side projects from terrapin so i was happy to see this .. . Pours a deep brown .. light head, light lacing .. . good dark roast, burnt molasses, and decaf espresso .. . light mouth for an impy stout .. . pretty good libation.. . . .

First time trying this beer. Pours a dark dark brown color, not as dark as I expected. Very thin head that vanishes quickly leaving a thin edge. The nose is very nice: Dark Fruits very prevalent, nice roastiness, a little bit of sweetness as well, licorice. Medium/full body, not as thick and syrupy as I would like: also, cholcolate and a very pleasant bitterness. Best brew I have tried from Terrapin but they lose points for brewing in a hell hole like Athens, Georgia.

bottle. pours black with whispy tan head, the nose has dark chocolate, burnt caramel, and raisins. kind of classic/typical impy stout nose. the flavor tends to fall more on the darker fruit side with raisins and prunes coming out strong although it is balanced by brown sugar, charred cocoa nibs, and a healthy hop bitterness. the body feels a little thin but swallows a tad syrupy and the palate is quite long. alcohol is really well hidden. overall this isnít mind blowing or does anything new for the style, however it nails a pretty drinkable and well made imperial stout. too bad itís 50degrees in Jan otherwise this would have hit the spot more.

Draft from my house: keg is multiple months old poured into a dimple mug pours extremely black and opaque with a large creamy espresso tan head that last for ever. very rich malt aroma with a big licorice and dark chocolate aromas, small hints of some roast coffee but not over powering. very inviting nose. big thick chewy mouth feel and a nice warming and smooth drinking beer. great chocolate flavors with hints of roast and coffee and nice bright licorice moments. extremely smooth and creamy for an impy stout. excellent drinker and has aged well
