COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Terrapin Side Project #9: The Dark Side, a Belgian Style Imperial Stout. Come on over to "The Dark Side" for the latest brew in the Terrapin "Side Project" series. Brewed with evil intentions, this Belgian Style Imperial Stout is made with copious amounts of dark grains that make this beer as dark as the underside of Vader’s cape. "The Dark Side" is fermented with a unique Belgian yeast strain which sets this Imperial Stout light years ahead of its time.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle, 22oz. A very dark brown body is topped by a small, beige head. Chocolate, coffee and something reminiscent of molasses in the aroma. A whiff of alcohol too. The flavor has a pleasant addition of resiny hops trying to bring some balance, but it’s still more on the dark malty side with chocolate, coffee and a touch of molasses. Full body, soft carbonation. Tasteful and pleasant. 111209
