Coffee on the nose with very low carbonation. Oatmeal base beer is completely missing with little to no mouthfeel apparent in the beer. The light body also makes the coffee flavor very astringent. Not a bad beer but would not buy again because of its $2+ price tag per bottle ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from tasty beverage Raleigh NC. This may be my first terrapin beer and man does it not let down. Really swell balance of oats the coffee. Sometimes in coffee beers the coffee can sometime be overwhelming. However this is not one of those. Some chocolate notes there as well. Alcohol is enough that you know it's there. Wish I would have bought more to age. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kulsort, tyk med lille lysebrunt skum. Aroma af chokolade og frugtig kaffe. Smagen er fed, kaffe selvfřlgelig, sřdme. Lav carb, som harmonerer godt med smag.

2013 release.
Appearance: Pitch black body with a short and dense brown head. the head is short lived, but settles into a thin coating with a dense ring.
Aroma: The aroma is strongly of coffee, but not nearly as robust as I remember, which is a good thing. Lots of coffee and toasted oats. Hints of a slightly sweet malt base are shown, overall a nice aroma with a skew towards coffee.
Taste: Much like the aroma this skews towards coffee without being overboard. Hints of chocolate are throughout that lead to a prominent roasted coffee presence that becomes mildly astringent. The finish lingers a bit medicinal grape, which is odd. Actually this is pretty darn good until I noticed that, now it’s bothering me.
Palate: Full-bodied with moderate carbonation, enough to stab my tongue a little.
Overall: Overall this is a good stout, lots of coffee flavor and a solid base. I don’t know where this medicinal flavor is coming from though as I’ve never experienced it in this beer before this year. Maybe it’s a bit of soy along with the strongly roasted coffee? I’m not sure but it’s making me glad I didn’t buy too many of these.

12 oz bottle into a tulip glass. Thanks smonice! Pours a pitch black body with two fingers of mocha foam and nice lacing. Aroma is obviously coffee; slightly vegetal/peppery (in a good way) and roasty, with a nice bit of chocolate sweetness. Taste is an excellent roasty coffee with a real oat like bready quality and chocolate sweetness. Finishes dry with a lingering bitterness and vanilla undertone. Creamy and smooth mouth feel. The oats play a really nice role here in the mouth feel and in the taste and the coffee is huge against the chocolate. ABV is well hidden and this is easy drinking. It’s a great coffee stout, but I have to give the edge out to FBS.

So really, what is not to like? It pours thick and black. Taste is everything good- sweet malt, good coffee, chocolate, earth, hops in a meal in a glass. It’s delicious. Perfect winter sit-by-the-fire-sipper.

Poured from a 12oz bottle I got in a trade, thanks Devin. Aroma is huge coffee and chocolate. Flavors are coffee, chocolate, oatmeal, and caramel. Very nice stout, huge flavors. Not thin in the mouth at all, very full flavor throughout the whole stout. Great beer!

Bottle from Hop City, Atlanta. 2013 Vintage. Pours a very dark brown, small amount of tan head. Aroma surprisingly dull, hints of roasted malt. Taste is another story, though. Delightfully complex, coffee, oatmeal, roasted malt swirl together seductively. Finish strong on the coffee bitterness. Top notch.

pours ink black with a thick mocha head, smells of coffee with some sweeter notes in there. At first the taste is a bit sweet (malts + caramel) followed by tons of coffee and oats, then finishes with bitterness of coffee. thick mouthfeel

Pours ink black with thin brown head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of mild coffee and oats - not complex. Taste of coffee and caramel malts. No chocolate, toffee, etc like its competitors. Thick velvety mouthfeel - very nice. Overall decent but not mind blowing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
