Terrapin Richland Reserve (2017)

What the brewers say

“A pair of Georgia’s best liquid artisans have come together to combine two art forms: craft brewing and craft distilling. Richland Reserve, the second in our Ales from the Wood series, is made from vintage 2015 Tiramisu-Hoo Imperial Milk Stout and has been masterfully aged in Richland Rum barrels for more than twenty-two months.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Homemade ol’ time cough syrup, aged dark chocolate, rum-like alcohol, coffee, raisin, cardboard oxidation, vanilla, and spice.”

Flavor: “Surprisingly, the coconut comes first, with coffee trailing close behind. Then the rich sweetness brings up the rear: very big maple, pecan praline, dates, caramel, and rich toffee. Nice vanilla. Warming alcohol.”

Overall: “Crazy flavorful beer. So much going on that it tastes more like dessert than beer and so much fun to analyze.”
