Terrapin Big Daddy Vladdy Russian Imperial Stout
I ordered a glass of Terrapin Big Daddy Vladdy Russian Imperial Stout from Al's of Hampden while there for my work “team building.” The beer pours a black color with a filmy tan head. The aroma consists of chocolate with alcohol. The taste is smooth and large with toasted malts, chocolate, smoke, and a hint of toffee on finish. The alcohol content is 10.3% ABV. The Big Daddy Vladdy was a solid performed in the Russian Imperial Stout category and definitely announced its alcohol content. The sweet chocolate flavor mixing with the smoke flavor provided a wonderful blend of flavors across the tongues.
