COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional stout using dark roasted malted barley to create a full-bodied ale. Rounded with the smooth flavor of oats, the addition of English Kent Goldings hops produces a creamy stout that has proven to be a favorite.

From bottle thanks to Immy. Pours black with thick coffee head that dissipates quickly. Nice lacing. Nose is slightly acrid, with chocolate and coffee. Flavor follows, a touch sour, with bitter in the finish. A little on the thin side.

Bottle from trade with cpkschubert; Nose of coffee, chocolate, and a little smoke and tartness; Opaque walnut with a huge tan head that laces heavily as it recedes; flavor is of tart coffee, with roasty and chocolate notes, and a small hop finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Dark brown, black, no head or lacing. Nose of astringent and vegetal notes, lots of coffee and clean sweet roast. The flavor is sweet, meh, nice roastiness. This and the blonde are the only ones that go well with this brewer’s terroir. Varnish? Starchy, lots of coffee.

Zgreatest oatmeal stout in the west! The aroma is fantastic. Best if served directly from the brewery as it is not one of Nimbus fastest selling beers simply because of where it is brewed in the desert southwest. Be sure to look at the lable on the bottle to ensure the beer has not exceeded its aging into becoming sour. It is a really grea beer!

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Beer pours very dark brown with a somewhat smallish, mostly diminishing tan colored head. Burnt aroma with some sweettart aromas. Flavor is tart to the point of being sour. I am not opposed to sour beers, but don’t look for sour when sampling sweet stouts. Don’t know, perhaps I got a bad bottle.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2006
Bottle. Pours a deep dark black body with a medium tanned-mocha head. Beautiful aroma - milky chocolate, toffee, hops, and just a touch of sourness. Reasonably low carbonation. Sour malt flavours didn’t really bode well but despite this there were other decent traits like the chocolate toffee flavour and bitter coffee. Relatively short finish. Pretty tasty overall but not without its faults.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 24, 2006
Poured a very dark brown color witha small tan head. Highly roasted aroma, light tartness and some smoke. The aroma was creamy and sweet. Notes of brown sugar. While the aroma sounds complex and good it was alittle odd to me. The flavor was very roasty and tart. Bitter roasty finish. Very thin body.

12 oz Bottle: Pours a deep brown stout looking color, with a brown head. Almost like a fizzy coke, but with less fizz and pop. Aroma strong on the malts, with some roastiness, A creamy mouthfeel with some bitter hops mixed near the front and finshes some oatmela, chocolate, vanilla.
