Nitro at Iron Hill Newark. Pours out black with a moderate creamy off white head. Aromas of light chocolate, slight roast and a little sweetness. Velvet-like smooth mouthfeel. Taste is roasted malts, light chocolate and some hints of oat sweetness. Rather well balanced and pretty solid.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
