Terrapin-Shmaltz Reunion Ale '12

At Al’s of Hampden I picked up a bottle of the Terrapin-Shmaltz collaboration Reunion Ale ‘12. The beer pours a dark brown color with a foamy cream colored head. The aroma consists of cinnamon, coffee, toasted malts, vanilla, and chocolate. The taste is dry and filled with dark chocolate. Cinnamon dries the mouth out further before some vanilla shows up to sweeten out the flavor a bit. The alcohol content is 8.0% ABV. This was a decent beer and notably better than the ‘11 version of this beer. I can’t say I fell in love with it and would buy it again, but it was worth the try.
