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.

This sweet stout pours an eclipse black color from a 12oz bottle. Large sized white beige foamy head with strong lacing. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla and coffee, kind of sweet. A medium bodied sweet stout. Malts are chocolate and coffee. The beer is a little lactic tasting, but very mild and only a little distracting from all the coffee flavors. This could be because the beer is turning or could from all the vanilla and cocoa flavors. Good balance of the chocolate, malt and coffee flavors. The lactic taste sort of works in this beer, I would rather it NOT be there but… Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - SEP 1, 2007
12 Oz Bottle via footy. Flat cardboard and white toast aroma. Light salted caramels. Faint roast. Spills a deep black-brown, with mahogany fringes and rim of tanned soap. Flavor is a static, wet, plain brown sugar and plum flavor. Old tasting. Bits of ocean flotsam. Finishes in the higher metallic range. Salted. Pretty weak stout base. Body is a nip thin. Soured coffee grains. Does not excel. A bit too still, but more carbonation would have blasted through the empty body of the beer, making it even less desirable.

12 oz bottle from Sparky27. Pour is mostly black with light cordovan highlights, nice full one inch taupe head. Thick lacing as the head slowly falls. Aroma of mild roasted malt, with a hint of some tangerine sweetness and dusty peanut shells. Odd, never smelled that one (peanut shells) before. Taste is flat, old office coffee with some artificial sweetener mixed in. Remarkably, the peanut taste is present in the finish - along with a decent blast of Crystal malt. As this warms, quite a bit of diacetyl reveals itself, certainly detracting. Palate is medium, decently carbonated with a longish dusty finish. Interesting enough beer, similar to the other Nimbus beers, a little but all over the place. Thanks Eric!

Draft. Pours clear cola-brown, thin pale tan head; spotty lacing. Nose is roast, oats, cream, quite a light, simple nose. Flavours are watery roast, soap. Meh....

Opaque black with tan brown head that doesn’t retain well. Nose is on weaker side for an Oatmeal stout IMO. However, from what is there it is nice - Whoppers candy, nougat, chocolate, caramel icing on birthday cake. Palate is a nice chalky roasty chocolate flavor, with plent of roastiness to boot. Caramel again too. Finish is long and caramel sweet.
