daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - SEP 5, 2006
Bottle thanks to Ross. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is coffee, grain and maybe cherry. Flavor is not at all what I was expecting. Light coffee tones with the oatmeal more of a creamy mouthfeel than an actual flavor. Quite acidic with a medium dry finish. An overall plesant beer though I was expecting more.

"Monster 2006 Beer Tour" bottle in an Authentic German style Luettich Balloon glass Tasting Temp 50° (previous in a 33° refrigerator) If Stephen Hawking was to review the clarity of this beer, I would be reading more about Einstein and the universe, truly a black hole of darkness in a glass. Much like the brewery mascot that is featured on the bottle label, the head retention is timid almost scared as only a small fringe of white is present on the outer rim. As I swirl the glass around, half full of this possibly barrel aged, coffee aromatic, ale, I am compelled to still seek a hint of hops, although yet to be classified. A casual sip, hits my tongue and reminds me of roasted coffee, curious espresso, with minor amounts of woodiness. Overall mouth feel, comes off as medium.

Black with dark brown head. Coffee, chocolate and sweet cinnamon aroma. Great taste that mirrors the aroma. Very smooth and chocolatey. Alcohol is very hidden, and no bitter hop taste at all. Good coffee taste, but not incredible. Got this after a tasting with the guys from Bottleworks, thanks guys.

lamas (1419) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2006
2006 bottle courtesy of ross. A jet-black pour with a smallish chestnut head. An aroma full of rich and roasty coffee, caramel, chocolate and dark cherries. Full, velvety-smooth body. Starts with some caramel and chocolate and finishes with plenty of dark coffee and hoppy bitterness. A lingering flavor that is very reminiscent of the last overly-sweetened sips of a cup of coffee that has long since gone cold. This is a real treat.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Bottle from illinismitty. Pours pitch black, decent dark tan head. Nose is inky black malt, cherry, alcohol, mocha, decent hop presence. Flavor is deep rich malt, lots of wonderful dark burnt sweetness, dark dark cherry, coffee is there but not overly aggressive. Nice silky body.

decaturstevo (5334) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 17, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2008 An almost black pour with a dark tan head. If chocolate came in flavors this would be alochol scented chocolate. An alcohol and raisin like flavor with the coffee, choco and alcohol being evident. A slight graininess in the palate but full bodied and flavorful. A damn fine beer that was lost in my frige for over 2 months.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - AUG 17, 2006
Wow, coffee up front, that’s fine. Pretty smooth flavor, alcohol is very well hidden, be careful with this brew! lol! Poured jet black, with a small tan head that left quickly, almost like a cup of ice coffee. Dark malt, somewhat sticky, good though! thanks to Sprinkle for the great brew!

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2007 This is my FAVORITE out of all of Terrapin’s Monster Beers. They are contracted with a coffee shop in Athens, Ga. (jittery Joe’s) They created a coffee blend just for this batch that they sell. Not a good coffee, but perfect to go with these malts that Spike uses! Be careful, you can drink more of this Imperial than you realize, Maybe the caffeine? Dark in color, not much of a (slightly tan) head. Sweet espesso flavor that is out of this world!

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2006 Thanks for the beer, lilkem. The body was black with an orange and brown colored head. The aroma was chocolate with syrup and coffee. There was also a bit of peanuts. The taste was a little bit of chocolate with some syrup and a bit of almonds. I thought that this was a little thin. Nothing bad here, but oatmeal coffee stouts are not my favorite thing.
