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.

On Tap at the brewery! Nice dark brown pour with a frothy head. Roasted barley with a nice round oatmeal taste that stays on your tounge for a while. Go for it!

Pours thick black with minimal head. Aroma of roasted malt and a hint of oatmeal. Taste is very dry and acrid. There is a tiny bit of oatmeal in the background, but there is no residual sweetness in this beer, and the over-use of roasted malts really kills the taste.

Dark brown pour, dark tan head which dissipated quickly. Smooth roasted aroma with a hint of plum or similar. Toasted malt taste, with a touch of coffee-like bitterness at the trailing end. I like it.

On tap at the mother ship, Nimbus Tucson East, though I’ve had it in the bottle before. Nice dark roasted flavor, probably their best offering.

Bottle thanlks to Hellbilly: Pours very dark almost completely black with a 1 finger brown and gray head. Aroma is equally malty and roasty. Flavor is rich and smooth with plenty of malty backbone to balance all the usual dark roasty notes. Medium creamy body. Hop character is hidden but this beer isnt really sweet. Its balanced enough. Very drinkable and hits all the right notes.

Nose of raisins, and oats. Flavor of toasted oats. Seems a bit one-dimensional, but the flavor is far from bad. Also seems somehow thin and watery... Not my favorite offering from this brewery, but not bad at all.

Serving type: bottle Appearance- Pours very thick and syrupy with a tan head that quickly disappeared. The beer itself is a creamy solid black color. Lacing disappeared to little spots on the glass. Aroma- Roasted malt and oats with a coffee smell and a sweet molasses and chocolate nose. T/P- – Smokey coffee, and a sweet chocolate taste to it. Mouth feel is very nice light carbonation no strong bitter aftertaste very clean. Overall- I have never been a huge stout drinker, but sine it is winter I am drinking more and more and starting to enjoy them more and more. This is a stout that making me start to enjoy them. I would defentaly have to buy this one again and again.

Terminus of my Nimbus voyage and certainly the stop I most anticipated. Pitch black and topped in two fingers of the darkest brown foam I’ve seen, this oatmeal stout definitely appears sumptuous. The nose, however, tells a different story, a conversely unbalanced and awkward mélange of luscious chocolate, Kona coffee, oats and maple syrup with talcum powder, fresh leather and rubbing alcohol. A charred flavor develops on the palate, and again the malts interact maladroitly with sour pineapple, cherry and rubber. The combination could have been a success if it weren’t for the obvious tartness which unfortunately detracts from the whole experience. Even so, I found this stout to be the most enjoyable (or the least unpleasant) effort of the bunch.

Aroma of roast coffee with underlying floral hops. Appears an opaque dark-brown-black color with a creamy tan head. Flavor is roasty and a tad burnt, with appropriate residual sweetness, but little to no oatmeal presence. Palate is smooth, creamy and very soft. Overall, a very good sweet stout, and a bit more than the sum of its parts.
