Nitro draught at the New Hope location. Talk about a homerun, wow was I impressed by this original beer. Poured with a deep dark brown body and an extra large nitro thick creamy head that just wouldn’t die down. Aroma was a bit subdued and only hinted at the wonderful cookie flavor hidden beneath. Taking your first sip of this you would swear that you are biting into a cookie complete with hints of vanilla, cinnamon, oatmeal and even a touch of raisin. While this beer has some mild sweetness about it from the vanilla, sugar,molasses and cinnamon it’s incredibley balanced and not over the top. Sadly this was on nitro so I couldn’t grab any growlers of this delicious treat to bring home.

Nitro at New Hope. Pours a nice deep dark brown almost black with a really nice lasting creamy tan head- sick lace. Aroma is of moderate cinnamon, caramel, toasted malts, good chocolate malt- and some weird coconut thing going on which was cool. Good amount of sweetness in the flavor from the lactose but not overdone- some creamy doughy oatmeal, chocolate malts, light roast, more cinnamon and spice- hints of nutmeg as well and a bit more coconut and some sweet toffee caramel in the finish. Pretty smooth overall.

20090117 Nitro draft at New Hope. Darkest brown with huge, creamy, insufferably lasting tall tan nitro induced head. We drank a few of these and the head lasted until the end each time. Very mild aromas, no doubt hidden beneath the inch of foam, but what was there was typical sweet stout with light roast, toasty malts. Flavor added nice cookie flavors for sure. They really nailed their intent with this one. Pleasantly flavored without being sweet, cloying, or (as I feared) diacetyl. An easy, enjoyable quaff. medium body No bitterness. Well done.

On draft in New Hope. Pours a dark brown with mahogany red tints and a creamy medium sized beige head. Aroma of sweet malt, toothpaste and oatmeal cookies. Taste is much the same as the aroma.

Pours deep dark brown with a creamy off white head. Aroma is oatmeal cookie, roast, dark chocolate and some coffee. Taste is sweet with roasty undertones. This was one of the best brews I’ve had at Triumph, very solid.

I don’t remember much about this one. Had on tap at the Princeton brewpub in my sampler. Don’t remember much taste reminding me of a cookie, but the oatmeal mouthfeel was present.
