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.

Poured from a bomber into a tulip. Nearly jet black with a mocha head. Aroma is roast and chocolate. The taste is roast, chocolate, ash, lactose and a bit metallic. Heavy on the sweetness, but has a slightly dry bitter finish. Body is light/medium with soft carbonation. Overall, a nice twist on a porter.

Mora2000 (5834) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle at Jester King Zwanze Day. Dark brown pour with a brown head. The aroma is very nutty with some chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of hazelnut and chocolate notes, as well as some roasted malt and cream. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

"Tootsie Rolls and lightly bitter dark chocolate in the nose and flavor. Smooth palate but a little thin. The porter part is just ok, the chocolate great. If this were an imperial stout or more robust porter, this would be epic."

eaglefan538 (2902) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Pour was dark brown to black with a huge and highly carbonated chocolate colored head. Aroma of cocoa and milk. Flavor followed with some ash and Hershey syrup type notes. Mouthfeel was a ittle light with high carbonation. Thanks to goodgrief for the shot at this one.

Goodgrief (1806) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Dark fizzy pour. Dark color. Itís fizzy and over carbonated. Itís really over carbonated. I could describe other things, but nothing else really matters.

Bottle from Brusiní Ales. Pours black with a half inch khaki head. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Some solid cocoa on the nose. Very soft and soapy mouthfeel. Dry and dusty on the tongue. Finishes clean. Eh!

Damico (2647) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2014
Pours thick dark unclear brownish dark chocolate with a creamy tan head. Aroma is a melted Hershey bar, lightly sweetened clean chocolate. Flavor is similar, cocoa bring the most prevalent with some smooth lightly roasted malts.

HonusWagner (1531) - Florida, USA - APR 18, 2014
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 itís just another Terrapin beer that I cannot get excited about.
