3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours deep and dark brown as an Oatmeal Stout should. Head was a little quick to disapate but no biggie. Nose was rich and malty with subtle hints of hops. Flavor is very roasted malt with nice touches of chocolate and creamyness. Very pleasing mouthfeel and nice finish where the ekg hops add a great balance. This is a very stand-up stout, will drink this one again.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2005 Bottled. Pours very dark brown , with a thin tan head. Very smokey and somewhat sour on the nose. Creamy and smokey, dark burt malts, orange chocolate, earth, and very smooth in the finish. Nice creamy thick body. Had imperial qualities just not the alcohol level. Very flavorful.

Bottle; Poured dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma: light oat smell/ toasted/ metal. Flavor: Strong but not in a good way, tasted of metal, copper something to that effect. Slight malt/ roasted flavoring. Not my favorite.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2005 My favorite stout and my favourite Nimbus brew. Completely opaque when poured, and has a nice brown head. Definite coffee/chocolate flavors. Very nice sweet/roasty armoa. UPDATE: This one’s turned nastier in recent batches, something like the brewery and its’ growing yuppie clientele. Nimbus, we hardly knew ye..

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of toffee and yeast. and hoppy hints. Pours an opaque dark brown with a fairly thick tan head that leaves some lacing. Taste is roasted malt with black cofffee and toffee notes. Super carbonated - not full-bodied, which may be the key to its drink-ability. Not bad but not particularly memorable.

The nitrogen-charged oatmeal stout is the best beer on tap at Nimbus (as of September 9th). Of course, I know there’s a lot of complaining about nitrogen making beer taste like month-old milk. Still, for me, the nitrogen does a lot to preserve the sweetness and creamy palate of the stout. When sipping the Nimbus oatmeal stout, it seems a little thin on taste as soon as it hits the tongue, but the finish is surprisingly flavorful (chocolate, coffee, oats). Every drink left me wanting another.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle received from an in person trade at DLD. Pours black with short lived brown head. Smells sweet chocolate, lactose, oatmeal, and vanilla. Flavor of sweet milk chocolate, vanilla, and a slight sour milk twinge at the end. Smooth mouthfeel from the oats and medium carbonation. A pretty nice and drinkable oatmeal stout.

this is a very nice local stout that stacked up well in the year long ’greatest stout’ search my wife and I conducted in 2006-7

Outstanding flavor that rivals the best Porters and Stouts. It is similar to another Tucson brew- Gentle Bens Nolan Porter.
