Terrapin “Coffee Oatmeal Wake-n-Bake”
Terrapin Beer Company – Athens, Georgia USA
Imperial Stout (ABV 8.1%)

[Best served in a snifter]

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 17/20

The pour was a thick pitch black with a thin (less than 1 finger) medium brown creamy head that reduced quickly to a small amount of residue that was left clinging to the glass thus producing some fair lacing.

The aroma was right of front with the odor of fresh ground roasted coffee, cereal malts and a doughy yeast with a note of dark chocolate and a touch of molasses.

The taste was extra malty and a tad bitter sweet with a nice chocolate note, and then a large dose of roasted coffee took over with a slight molasses sweetness and a mild alcohol finish. The flavor was left to linger for a really long time after the swallow with the taste of coffee being the most dominant.

Mouthfeel was a thick, chewy, and full in body with the texture being smooth and creamy yet just a bit oily and having a soft carbonation.

Overall a very impressive Oatmeal Stout with the coffee and oats melding so well it was almost breakfast in a bottle.
