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.

mds (2209) - 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 didnít 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.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 18, 2006
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.

hopdog (8958) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade with FlactoAlto (thanks!). Poured a dark black, with red edges, and a huge sized tan head. Aromas of roast, lactose, oatmeal, and licorice. Tastes of coffee, roast, light oatmeal, and some bitter chocolate. Lively body.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 6, 2006
Pours a dark nearly opaque brown with a nicely-lacing tan head. Sweet roasty oatmeal lactose aroma has lots of vanilla and milk chocolate. Body starts with some mild buttery vanilla sweetness finishing more dry with a lingering milk chocolate roastiness. An interesting and unique stout, but could be a little more balanced.

Very little head, which quickly peeters out. Totally dark without any light passing through. Wonderful malty flavor with a roasty bitter aftertaste. Not partkcularly sweet to my taste. Good scent. Iíd have to say the best of the three Nimbus beers a friend bought back from Spring Training this year! Reminds me a bit of Obsidion Stout from Descuttes (sp?) Brewing.

TomDecapolis (4485) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 31, 2006
Thanks to hopdog for this bottle. Pours a dark, dark brown bordering on black with a large rocky/bubbly tan head. Aroma of sweet oatmeal, chocolate, lactos and some coffee. Flavors of the same, with maybe some more coffee, but Iím also picking up a bit of metallic (not much, but a little). Liked the aroma slightly more than the flavor. A little on the thin side, still a nice "sweet stout".

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAR 15, 2006
UPDATED: APR 29, 2008 Opaque, dark brown in color w/ a "grandmas got oatmeal cookiní in the kitchen this morniní" on the nose. The aroma is fantastic. Full nectar w/ dry earthy leather overtones in an oatmeal robe. Well balanced. Overall: my favorite oatmeal stout, reminds me of good oleí granny.

hobojac (1) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 20, 2006 does not count
This Nimbus offering is very harsh going down, as all of their beers are. Iím from Tucson, so Iíd love to give a glowing review to a local microbrew, but I just canít. This is not one of the better beers Iíve had.

Dark brown beer with a tan head. The flavor and aroma is chocolate/ coffee. The right amount of residual sweetness. A very good beer. The wife even likes it.
