Tap at the brewpub. Very nice sweet aroma. Nice dark complexion with a nice residue. Nice and sweet with a well balanced creaminess. Good aftertaste and dessert beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
poured of nitro at New Hope, which I think may have ruined some of the aroma. Dark brown, almost black with some ruby hues near the bottom the glass. Big thick creamy off white head. Aroma: light coffee and chocolate. Taste is coffee, lightly roasted grains, a sweetness building throughout the taste, full creamy palate. Didn’t quite match my expectations on this one, but that could be because of the nitro pour.

on tap-pours a creamy tan head that laces with black color. Aroma is coffee, dark malt. Taste is a regular coffee (one cream & one sugar), with mild carbonation, chewy. Not my taste.

Triumph Princeton on draft. Pours dark brown with nice off white head that laces all the way down the glass. Faint aroma of coffee grounds. The flavor worth of it’s title, coffee (mild) and light cream. Not too heavy mouthfeel, but still full flavored. What I liked that is that you could drink more than one of these, but still get a lot of flavor.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Triumph New Hope. Nitro pour. Nice pure black with a thick lasting smooth off white creamy head and awesome lace. Aroma is initially a decent amount of coffee, but then fades away and more chocolate malts and a light sugary sweetness is noticed. Flavor was a bit light, but had some coffee, chocolate, light toffee, lgiht caramel and a bit sweet, but finished kinda dry and weak. Smooth though.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled on draught at the New Hope, PA location. I was really impressed with this one. Poured from nitro, this beer pours to a jet black color, with a thick, dense, creamy, tan head, and a soft to moderate amount of carbonation. The nose on this beer is excellent, with lots of big aromas of sweet malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and mild roast. The palate is rich and creamy on the tongue, with lots of good dark chocolate, sweet malt, and coffee flavors. This beer finishes with more chocolate, coffee flavors up front, then ends just enough mild roast and mild bitterness to balance out the chocolate character of this beer. Excellent sweet stout, with delicious aromas, and flavors. A great beer to match with a desert, or to enjoy as an after dinner beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Triumph New Hope. Nitro-cascade produces a creamy, sandy-tan head on a very dark brown body. Appealing aroma of coffee candy, light roast, and sweet dark chocolate. Flavor leads with caramel and then coffee. Medium-high lactose sweetness. Balancing light hop and roast bitterness emerge. Pleasant and lingering flavor. Medium body with a lightly carbonated mouthfeel. A decent dessert stout.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2005 A thick beige head over opaque black liquid. Very strong coffee flavors, very creamy and chocolatey. Similar to Guinness in kind of weak, thin mouthfeel. Taste is very well done though, very mellow, a nice lingering finish almost exactly like coffee.
