UPDATED: DEC 21, 2006 Another great beer from Terrapin Beer Company! Pours a complete black in the glass with a 1-finger light brown head. Nose of strong black coffee, roasted malt and and hints of Liquid Smoke. Big bodied, thick and creamy mouth feel. Flavors of baker’s chocolate, espresso and cocoa. Enough hop presence to keep the tastes from getting too strong. Excellent!!!!!!

Pours a deep black with a a med. brown cream-like head. Aroma is of chocolate rum cake with a touch of Irish Cream. The body is med-heavy with a perfect amount of bitterness. The flavors are so well balanced, you have to remind yourself that the beer is 8.1%. Nothing stands out predominantly over the other. Cocoa covered raisins, coffee and cream, followed by a refined balancing bitterness. This is one of the best balanced beers I have had in a longtime.
