Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Appearance: Pours a 1.5 finger light mocha head with poor retention. Beer is an
opaque, pitch black. No lacing with very thin legs. Just below average.
Aroma: Nose is chocolate, lactose, cocoa, and just a splash of peanuts and
peanut shell. Moderately aromatic but it works nicely.
Taste: Opens chocolate, lactose and roasted malt. Peanut aroma and flavor
lingers in the background. More chocolate and coca cola in the middle. End is
peanut, chocolate, and more lactose. Aftertaste of roasted malt. Pretty simple
but just as promised. And its better than I expected.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Lively with some
bubbles in the mouth and goes down smooth. Messy finish with a lingering
aftertaste. Even though this one's got ample carbonation, it comes across very
smooth, really helping to integrate the flavors.
Overall: A big want of mine ever since I heard about it, Liquid Bliss delivers
exactly what I want it to. I wish the peanut flavors were a bit more pronounced
but this beer is well balanced overall and the aroma and body carry the flavors
over beautifully. Definitely worth trying.
Terrapin Beer Company
Terrapin Beer Company was born when two brewers met while working
together at a microbrewery in Atlanta. Looking around at what other
breweries in the SE were doing, Spike and John felt they could make
a contribution. Realizing that anyone could make just another pale
ale, brown ale or stout, Spike and John set their sights on crafting
beers unlike any that were currently available in the SE.
Terrapin introduced its first beer, the Rye Pale Ale in April of
2002. Six months later while only available on draft in Athens,
Terrapin’s sole offering won the American Pale Ale Gold Medal at the
2002 Great American Beer Festival. Only six months old, Terrapin had
arrived in style!
Since they were going to be making unique beers, Spike and John knew
from the beginning that Terrapin Beer Company should be located in a
city as distinctive as their brews. What better place than Athens,
GA? Both Athens and Terrapin have a great love of music, are
committed to the environment, and practice living life to the
History rolls forward and so too has Terrapin. These days John and
Spike are enjoying Terrapin’s 40,000 square foot brewing facilities,
100 BBL brewhouse, breand-new canning line, and taking full
advantage of the space to brew new innovative and exciting beers.
The year round line-up now includes Terrapin Rye, Golden Ale,
Hopsecutioner, Liquid Bliss, RecreationAle, and HI-5. Terrapin has
also released many other beers and garnered several awards both in
the U.S.A and internationally.
