Terrapin Beer Co.
Style: Imperial stout
First thing that catches my eye is the packaging. I like the down-stated classic style label and love the cinnamon roll-esque double dipped bronze and cream colored wax neck. This beer pours a very dark black with deep brown head that when swirled reminds me of a café latte. You pick up the cinnamon quickly in the nose but it in no way overpowers the espresso. Take a sip and bam! The dark-roasted chocolate and coffee notes tango with the spicy cinnamon flavors in perfect harmony. It is so well done you’ll think you can taste the frosting!
