Terrapin Big Sloppy Monster

On tap at Leon’s, Decatur, Atlanta, GA, USA on 08/12/10 as part of the “Terrapin Takeover”. Attended the event particularly for this beer and Substance Abuse.
10 oz pour.
The beer poured an alarmingly cloudy mid-brown with some serious yeastiness. The keg must have been terribly unsettled, and it wasn’t until the second glass that I had (about an hour after the first), that I felt I had a handle on this. (It settled down in that time).
The beer had lost it’s hoppy edge in the barrel and it had turned into a much milder beast. Age and liquor turned the Big Hoppy Monster into a tamed beast, and it would be difficult to draw comparisons between this and the original version. That isn’t to say that I didn’t enjoy the beer, I did, it was smooth and easy drinking, but it wasn’t just a slightly amped up BHM – it had changed. to be expected I suppose. Some vanilla, muted hops and sweeter than i remember, but the beer is at least interesting and offers a decent experience.
Interesting.
