Terrapin Reunion Beer 2010

As per the SP series, a 22 oz bottle with gold foil.
A dark copper body with a really disappointing lack of head a lace. Almost seems “flat” and this seriously detracts from the whole experience in terms of appearance and mouthfeel.
Nose is a malty, alcohol infused aroma – fair enough, no complaints there.
Carbonation seems a little low to me. Lacks spark, depth and life.
Massive, and I mean massive, bubble-gum presence in the taste; OVERWHELMING in fact. There is almost nothing here other than the bubble-gum esters and a little warming alcohol. The funny thing is that I quite enjoy the bubble-gum character normally, AND it is somewhat appropriate for the style, BUT this beer is so over the top it’s damaging. Too strong a presence by a mile.
The tastes make the beer difficult to drink and really lacking in grace – ho hum.
