Draft, from P-vllle. This one pours hazy dark brown with aroma of oaty molasses, chocoff, and roasty malt. The flavor is oaty, on the sweet side, rich, with chocoff and oats. This one is very good, and IMHO underrated by about 0.5-0.7.

Nitro, Wilmington. Opaque black with a big, creamy tan head. Nitrogen pretty much killed the aroma except for some faint chocolatiness. Flavor is quite nice, with a ton of roasted malts and a distinct oaty character. Mouthfeel is full for a nitro’ed beer. Pretty good.
