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.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Cask version from the brewpub (Voorhees). Pours a thin clear dark brown color with almost no head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and caramel. Taste is boozy, with notes of roasted malt, caramel, and an earthy hop bitterness.

Draft @ Iron Hill Wilmington.
Pours a dark black with light colored thick and silky head. Typical for a oatmeal stout. Tastes of lightly roasted oats without any noticeable hop presence. Smooth and slightly silky mouthfeel. Overall a drinkable brew, but very forgettable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Creamy, very smooth, thick. Nice aroma, but way too sweet, almost syrupy. With less sugar this would be a truly awesome beer, but it doesn’t do much for me as-is.
