Rerate 1/29/06
On nitro at the North Wales location. Poured a dark brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of roast, chocolate, and some oatmeal. Reminded me of a chocolate covered malted milk ball. Tastes of chocolate, oatmeal, and roast. On the roasty side. Lots of lacing left on the glass. Thinner body. Increasing the overall numbers some.

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.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2006 Poured a dark brown, opaque color with a medium sized, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast, vanilla, cocoa, and lactose. Taste of roasted oats, some chocolate, smoke, finishing lighly sour. Water, and thin, but fairly creamy mouthfeel.

Nitro at Phoenixville BrewPub (at 6.2%ABV): Aroma of roasted malt, light lactose, and a hint of chocolate. Poured dark brown/very dark amber in color with a large, creamy, dense, tan, nitro head. Clear. Not sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of light chocolate, lactose, oats, and slight roasted malt. Medium body. Creamy, slightly dry texture. Nitro carbonation. Slight chocolate finish is a tad dry.

EithCubes (4705) - New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2013
Tap in Maple Shade. Ruby edges on pitch pour with clingy tan head. Nose is beautifully roasty, heavy coffee there but it’s a city roast, gentle background fruit with tar and ash. Taste is abundantly fruity, quite sweet, silky light-medium body, light oatmeal in with the roastiness. Excellent Sweet Stout.

TomDecapolis (4427) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JAN 26, 2007
On tap at the North Wales location. Served on nitro. Pours a deep brown/black with hints of amber when held to the light. Very creamy Latte looking off white lacing head that sustained. Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malts, lactose and vanilla. Flavor of milk chocolate, cappucino, oatmeal, slight roasty hints. A bit on the thin side and very milky/creamy.

sonnycheeba (3303) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Cask pour @ brewpub. Color is dark brown with thin tan head; minimal lacing. Sweet aroma with coffee and chocolate notes. Initial flavor is semi-sweet, but levels out with dry coffee and chocolate notes. Very nice beer and easy to drink.

eaglefan538 (2853) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 19, 2007
On draft at the Newark location. The pour was one of those wonderful stout experiences, bubbles separating out as a separate phase, slowly, delayed, very nice. Very generous tan to chocolate colored initial head that was very persistent, sat there looking pretty. The aroma was dark fruits, chocolate, some light roast. The flavor was chocolate, dark vinous fruits, some roast, and oatmeal aspects, although this was more overdone on the dark fruit/vinous side of things than I like my oatmeal stouts to be. Thick, a little syrupy, but kept honest by the oatmeal presence, I presume.

alobar (2719) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Pours black with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, oatmeal. Taste was sweet-oatmeal, chocolate with some bitterness with hints of coffee. Medium body and very smooth.
