Nutella inspired Terrapin Moo-Tella truly delivers

Terrapin Moo-Tella Bottle

Terrapin Moo-Tella has joined the brewery’s Special Reserve Series.

This specialty lineup started in 2013 with a white chocolate edition of Moo-Hoo, Terrapin’s chocolate milk stout. After a heated round of fan voting, White Chocolate Moo-Hoo snagged a return to the series again (on shelves now).

Since White Chocolate, the series has grown to include dessert inspired releases like French Toasted Wake-n-Bake, and Tiramisu-Hoo.

Now for Terrapin Moo-Tella. The Nutella inspired beer uses their Moo-Hoo Milk Stout, brewed with Nashville based Olive & Sinclair cocoa nibs, and a touch of hazelnut syrup. Brewery co-founder “Spike” Buchowski chose the syrup route because of potential nut allergy issues. Don’t let that slow you down. Moo-Tell really delivers.

Terrapin’s Special Reserve Series milk stouts are a bit more robust and bold than their seasonal Moo-Hoo. As far as Moo-Tella is concerned, the beer truly delivers a Nutella-inspired experience. The nose is a blend of hazelnut and chocolate, with a creamy milk chocolate finish that becomes more and more like the dessert spread as it warms.

Our 2017 Reserve Series release ‘Moo-Tella,” is a Chocolate Imperial Milk Stout so decadent you could eat it with a spoon. The intermingling of Olive and Sinclair chocolate and the rich flavor of hazelnuts creates an experience so pleasurable it should be shared with friends.

Terrapin Moo-Tella is now available in16.9-ounce bottles hitting the market the week of November 12th.

Style: Milk Stout (w/ Hazelnut. Cocoa Nibs. Lactose.)
Availability: 16.9oz Bottles. Limited Release.
Debut: November 2017

The fans voted, Terrapin White Chocolate Moo Hoo hits shelves again

Terrapin White Chocolate Moo Hoo bottle

Terrapin White Chocolate Moo Hoo has returned to shelves for only the second time ever.

The base beer uses cocoa nibs from Nashville, Tennessee’s Olive & Sinclair, plus a healthy helping of white chocolate. The end result is a decadent, creamy, dessert beer.

White Chocolate Moo Hoo has only seen one release despite previous plans to bring it back. For the 2016 election year, Terrapin gave their fans the opportunity to vote their favorite beer from the past back into production. We’re told White Chocolate Moo Hoo won by a landslide.

White Chocolate is our favorite specialty release by Terrapin. The white chocolate addition creates a really unique, almost esoteric flavor to this creamy dessert beer.

White Chocolate Moo Hoo is available in 16.9-ounce bottles for a limited time.

Style: Milk Stout (w/ Cocoa Nibs, White Chocolate)
Availability: 16.9oz Bottles, Draft.

Arrival: 2017

The brewery already has a winner in the gose style – Watermelon Gose. The beer tastes like summer feels. Joining the brewery’s Side Project Series is  Terrrapin Himalayan Pink Sea Salt Lime Gose, another warm weather/tropically inspired beer.

Negan approved. Terrapin Lucille, a second Walking Dead collaboration is cracking heads

Terrapin Lucille

Athens, Georgia based Terrapin Beer Company made waves a while back with their zombie themed Walking Dead Bood Orange IPA. In February, it returned once again in cans for the first time. The brewery now has two zombie apocalypse inspired beers on shelves. The newest?  Terrapin Lucille.

If you follow the show, Terrapin Lucille is named for the evil fella wreaking havok on our beloved Rick Grimes and crew – Negan and his weapon of choice, Lucille. The barbed wire should be a dead give away. If you haven’t been watching, the show gets pretty brutal. (And bloody.)

This beer drinks like dessert, but doesn’t drink like the 9.4% alcohol by volume beer it actually is. Perhaps this “Lucille” will do a little damage to your head as well. The imperial stout is brewed with both molasses and vanilla, and aged on hickory, maple, and white ash. All the wood that makes baseball bats.

Molasses dominates this beer, but isn’t overpowering, heavy or syrupy. Expect hints of brown sugar, dark chocolate oak and a touch of smoke.

Terrapin Lucille is available now in 500 milliliter bottles for a limited time.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Blackstrap Molasses, Vanilla Beans. Oak Aged.)
Availability: 500ml Bottles
Debut: March, 2017

9.4% ABV

Zombies not included. Terrapin The Walking Dead Beer, now in cans

Terrapin The Walking Dead

Terrapin The Walking Dead Blood Orange IPA is headed back to shelves once again in February, 2017. This edition finds the hops a bit brighter, with more pronounced blood orange flavor. Pairs well with apocalyptic zombie carnage.

12 ounce cans and draft are shipping the week of Valentine’s Day, 2017.

Below, Beer Street Journal’s original coverage of the beer’s release in fall, 2015

Terrapin The Walking Dead is coming this fall, to help soothe the nerves as the zombie hoards approach. The tv show, The Walking Dead is filmed in Terrapin’s home of Georgia. In past episodes, local craft breweries have made screen appearances in the show.

To create Terrapin The Walking Dead, the brewery partnered with series creator Robert Kirkman, and Skybound Entertainment to create a beer fans will love.

Terrapin Beer Company and The Walking Dead have teamed up to brew the official beer of the undead. Made with blood orange peel, and a horrific amount of hops, this bloodthirsty red IPA will have you prepared for the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse.

Beer Street Journal isn’t about beer reviews. Hopefully this doesn’t read that way. Last night we tried the Terrapin The Walking Dead, ahead of the release. Those wondering, yes – there is a good bit of blood orange flavor, and a hoppy finish. That’s a given. Also, that’s all the beer is supposed to be.

Honestly, I feel there are going to be interpretations of this beer. Those who will probably hate it because it won’t live up to their impossibly high standards for beer. Ok, IPAs. Half the time it’s the same folks that never have anything good to say about anything beer related. (Most likely everything else as well.)

On the other side of the tracks, are those people excited that The Walking Dead has a beer, that’s not brewed by a mega brewery, and will buy it because for just that reason, and crack it open during the show. Simple as that.. The response to the article announcing this beer has been insane. Simple as that.

At the end of the day, it’s a crazy amazing show, awesome partnership, and tasty liquid. Have fun with it.

Terrapin The Walking Dead Blood Orange IPA will be available in cans for the first time in February, 2017.

Style: IPA (w/ Blood Orange)
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft
Next Release: February, 2017
