COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Terrapin ""Dos Cocoas"" gets its name from the deep history of chocolate and the two forms of Ecuadorian cocoa we use in this exceptional beer. Brewed with 100% cocoa powder, and aged on a bed of pure cocoa nibs, the chocolate flavor in this beer is so mouth watering it will even make Wonka jealous.

Aroma is faint chocolate with some malt and sharp hops. Very carbonated with a beige lasting head. Taste is bitter up front leading into good chocolate flavor and some hop bitterness to finish. Mouthfeel is solid. Expected more from this.

scottw86 (1066) - Maryland, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Poured a very dark brown almost black with a medium sized light tan head. Aroma is like chocolate milk with nuts. Taste is very sweet and chocolatey. A little thin, but nutty and sweet. Aftertaste is a little dry with roasted malts. Overall it is flavorful, but the balance is a little off.

AdamT (111) - Wilson, North Carolina, USA - DEC 19, 2013
22oz bottle from Total Wine in Raleigh. Dark brown (almost black) hue, fizzy caramel mostly lasting head. Moderate chocolate and malt on the nose. Light malt & coffee on the initial taste with a light chocolate finish. Much better then Moo-Hoo

Aroma is heavenly chocolatey. The flavor is toasty and cocoa-ie. Its bubbly on the tongue.

jbruner (1972) - Athens, Georgia, USA - NOV 27, 2013
Pours a deep brownish black on tap with fluffy tan head that leaves great lace. Aroma is strong chocolate, sweet and roasty. Taste follows, kits of chocolate, slight soy, thinner than the moo hoo. Very nice.
