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.

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.

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..

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.

Indulgence (141) - Ajo, Arizona, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Aromas of burnt coffee, fermented fruits and bitter cocoa and some floral hops, pours a brownish black body with a small quick head the dissappears suddenly, flavor is dr. pepper like with notes of burnt coffee and cocoa, there is a light creaminess but a little too watery body and a dry. Overall, drinkable, but just one time, Next!

thickfreakness (132) - AUSTIN, Texas, USA - SEP 30, 2008
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.

Icommonsewer (124) - TUCSON, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2007
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

jedimasternick (96) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 29, 2002
Outstanding flavor that rivals the best Porters and Stouts. It is similar to another Tucson brew- Gentle Bens Nolan Porter.

BCMike22 (80) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Poured into Red Sox pint glass. Pitch black, next to zero carbonation. Non-existent head. Nose isn’t over pronounced. Some malt, coffee scents. Easier to drink than I thought, thinner than it poured. A little lighter in the palate, but a great aftertaste rich w/coffee and chocolate. Nice combo of taste and drinkability.

scottyg (79) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2004
The brew that I usually get when I go to Nimbus. A good stout, that doesn’t leave a bad look on your face. A nice blend of flavors that meld well together, though some at the table who are not stout fans said "it tastes like charcoal."
