Fresh bottle from jbruner. Pours midnight black with little to no head. Aroma is símores, a bit of chocolate, fir tree, pine cone. Taste is sweet, light/medium body with decent amount of combination. Interesting play between the dark, roasty/chocolatey malt and hops (what style?). Not bad.

this was a very different beer, I really enjoyed it. Loads of malts, slight chocolate flavor with hop bitterness coming through the back, loads of citrus with some grassy notes. Not as heavily hopped as I would have thought this beer to be

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A couple of BA traders have asked me about this beer when I told them I could get Terrapin. I bought one for someone, and then picked one up for myself to see what all the Hooplah was about:
Ap: Pours black as night, with a 1/2 inch head that left instantly, and carbonation to spare.
Ar: Not really strong in the aroma department, but what Iím getting reminds me of Coca-Cola - slightly bitter, with a hop sizzle.
T: Not at all vicious, actually very malty, and much smoother than I expected.
P: Frothy lacing and very creamy in texture. Very soothing.
O: Nothing really special about this one, but the beer itself is not too pretentious. Also, I REALLY love the bottle art!

Bottle, probably sat on this one too long. But it has aged well. Choclatety flavor, roasty, hops have diminished. Very flavorful, great mouthfeel, oily. Real nice.!

Bomber bottle from Dchmela, ( thanks Dave ). Nice black pour with a fine tan head. Roasted barly goodness with a nice balance of hops with a little wheat. Every sip was a pleasure.
