Pours black/brown with too liitle head to mention. The aroma is ripe fruit perfumy hops and roasty maky. Taste is much the same. Dry/slightly sour finish. Palate a lot thinner than I expected from the pour. Decent,,,

Absolutely opaque, black with a bright brown head that has red highlights. Interesting aroma that comes through mainly as milk, milk chocolate, subtle dark fruit, and brown sugar. Other aroma intricacies include a graininess from the oatmeal, no sign of the coffee. The flavor though, shows plenty of coffee. Many of the aroma components are in the flavor but are subdued (I find this quite often in unfiltered, not fully fined beer). This is a big beer but it is not overly complex. The "velvety smoothness" from the flaked barley and oatmeal seems to overly "smoothify" the beer and creates a muddy, uncomplex palate.

This is a tasty brew from a brewery that is fast becoming my favorite Georgia brewery (a shame that Dogwood closed...). The beer pours very dark. The aroma is of baking cookies, some coffee bitterness, a little hop aroma. The mouthfeel is excellent (I love what oatmeal does to a beers texture). The flavor has hints of oatmeal-chocolate-chip-cookie, some coffee and roasted barley bitterness. And theres a touch of hops to balance the beer and provide more complexity to the flavor profile. You know its a strong beer - the alcohol flavor isnt too strong, but the thick consistency and very strong malt flavor gives it away. All in all a very nice beer.

thanks to Matt for this bottle (BeerCellar2). I dont really get as much coffee from this one as I would expect from these types of stouts. The coffee was present but more roastiness and some faint chocolate smells come through when you dig deeper. The flavor is what I thought was so good about this beer. Great meld between coffee roastiness and bitterness, and with the flaked oats the palate is incerdibly smooth and silky. Overall a very good beer. Now I just wish I could buy it in Ohio.

MartinT (9499) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2008 Any first impressions?
-A brown veil sits atop the opaque black.
-Subtle, engaging roasted coffee beans benefit from some vinous qualities in the nose.
-Black grapes, capuccino, and dark chocolate all unite for the pleasure of all tastebuds.
-Yet another luscious, classy, nourishing body from Terrapin, knowing how to avoid obesity.

What if you dig deeper?
-Biscuity oatmeal comes out beautifully.
-Roastiness builds as well, keeping the sweetness in check.
-I was expecting the coffee character to be more obvious because of the beers name.
-Alcohol is present, but very delicate.
-An imperial stout which emphasizes drinkability with its light vinosity and fruity tartness.

Bottles; 2006 and 2007 edition.

12oz. bottle. Opaque black with a thin film of dark brown head. Burnt toast, chalky coffee, alcohol, and dark alefruit in the aroma. Heavy roasted malt flavors, followed by cocoa powder and alefruit. Coffee character in the finish with chocolate syrupy and tinges of alcohol and toasty malt. Mouthfeel is heavy, thick and chewy.

Big thanks to goldtwins for this one. Pours ebony with 1-finger brown head. Aromas of huge roasty malt, molasses, and chocoff. The palate is on the dense side, with a complex taste comprised of roasty malt, big chocoff, some licorice, almonds, hazelnuts, and molasses. Another great brew from Terrapin.

Deep roasted coffee, vanilla and nut aroma, smooth velvety coffee taste, spectacular texture from the oatmeal ,big coffee taste floats nicely to middle but dies at end. The taste profile is wonderful ,but they didnt bump it up enough, a little more of themalt and coffee and we have a classic here. Thanks Jrob
