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.

As good, if not better than Samual Smith's Stout. Truly representative to the style, and a sure fire favorite for this stout lover.

Quite possibly the best Stout in America! It is malty smooth and yummy good!

Really appreciated this beer. It’s full body provided a great palate. Aromas and flavors are very appropiate for the stile. Rostness is right on the target.

Zgreatest oatmeal stout in the west! The aroma is fantastic. Best if served directly from the brewery as it is not one of Nimbus fastest selling beers simply because of where it is brewed in the desert southwest. Be sure to look at the lable on the bottle to ensure the beer has not exceeded its aging into becoming sour. It is a really grea beer!

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

What can I say, as I love “Stouts”, since my first sip of a Guinness at St. James Gate some 25 years ago. Ebony color on the pour, creamy dark chocolate head that is modest in size, the lace a nice glutinous cover upon the glass. Starbucks coffee, bittersweet chocolate, fresh toasted grain, and quite pleasing to the schnozzle is this nose, start is sweet and thickly malt, with the top full and creamy. Finish has a bittersweet chocolate aftertaste, the acidity moderate, the hops purposeful in their spicy bite, and a “Terrific” representative to the style, and a sure fire favorite for this stout lover.

Luscious roasted barley aroma with some sugary sweetness. Deep black pour with a small head. Wow…big flavor. Milky sweetness combines with burnt malts and a wallop of hoppiness. Oaty velvet is a lovely addition. A very tasty stout. Thanks to FlacoAlto for the deliciousness.

very cool little brewery to visit when in Tucson. This stout was impressive, easily drinkable, creamy head.

Smoky, earthy aroma has nutty, yeasty and hoppy hints. It pours a beautiful opaque dark-chocolate brown with a fairly thick and persistent tan head that leaves some generous lacing. Sublime flavor has smoky, roast malt, coffee, nutty, earthy and toffee notes of varying prominence, quite tasty. Texture has good body and fizz - not full-bodied, but still impressive. Heartily recommended.

Black pour with a dark tan ring. Aroma is delicious rich chocolate and coffee. The oatmeal smooths the aroma out, and makes me want to dive into this beer. The flavor is creamy dark chocolate and just a bite of hops in the finish. The body is silky smooth and infinitely quaffable. Fantastic.
