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.

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.

desurfer (1209) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2005
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.

Ed5388 (1971) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2014
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.

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.

vlan1 (186) - Eastern Shore, Maryland, USA - NOV 15, 2013
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.

cazort (513) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2009
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.
