3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 Pretty much just tastes like cocoa powder with little else going on. Pretty bitter. Maybe the initial 22oz bottling was better than the new version, or maybe it’s just another Terrapin beer that I cannot get excited about.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
