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.

12oz bottle, thanks to Radarsock. Good, half-inch light brown head. Black body. Decent lace. Good, hearty texture, but light-tan medium body. Lighter, smooth carbonation. Great aromatic nose. Nice creamy chocolate malts and oat flavor, some good roastiness. Satisfying, robust flavor, good mild bitter sweet roasty taste. Satisfying solid oatmeal stout. Can’t complain. Good example of the style. My mom had a sip, she really seemed to like it.

Sampled at the brewpub. Stout looking. Chocolate aroma and flavor. Softer roasted notes. Lots of malt with only a hint of hops that are noticed more in the after taste. A creamy feel. Nothing here is big but it is nice.

State week month, week 1 Oct 2nd - 8th. State: Arizona.

Cheers to dcschiller for not only sending me this bottle of delicious beer, but for sending me a bottle with such an awesome label, I hope it’s easy enough to get off!

The beer pours a black color, ruby around the edges when held up to the light. The head is of a medium size, off white in color, and succeeds in leaving a nice lacing on the glass.

This is a damn fine smelling beer, loads of chocolate both dark chocolate and sweeter "hershey’s syrup" kind of chocolate are distinctly identifiable in the aroma. The beer displays a nice roastiness and the aroma is all around pungent and not unlike some sort of magical fermented mocha.

The flavor of the beer is pleasantly bitter, lightly tart, and displays plenty of roasty coffee-like flavors. The beer is lightly fruity and has some dark chocolate notes, it’s really not dry or anything but it’s pleasantly not-so-sweet.

draft at sheraton bar in phx. served way too cold which made it hard to get much aroma and/or taste. it was smooth and all the good qualities of an oatmeal stout but nothing stood out.

ChainGangGuy (4530) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 22, 2011
Appearance: Pours a dark brown, near black body with a scant, yellow-beige head. Smell: Light, stark notes of roasted grains, chocolate, fruit, and oats. All of it very, very light. All of it very, very forgettable. Taste: A faint sweetness overlaying a roasted barley scaffolding, a few meager hints of chocolate, and a dull, low fruitiness. Lightly earthy, faintly bitter English hops. Dry, kind of flavorless finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium-light carbonation. Overall: A mild, mild-tasting beer that’s just plain boring. I wasn’t asking for much, I wasn’t, but, come on, Nimbus, give me something to work with.

decaturstevo (5432) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 5, 2011
Black pour with tan head and lace. Toasted malt, sweet chocolate, and coffee aroma. Flavor mirrors aroma. A bit thin and fizzy. Nice beer.
