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 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

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.

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.

This beer comes courtesy of beerguy101..thanks again mitch. This beer pours a black color with a thin tannish head and excellent lacing throughout the course of drinking. Active carbonation throughout. The aroma is sweet....vanilla, chocolate, cocoa, roasted barley, oak and smoke are the predominant aromas. The flavor is smokey as well with vanilla, chocolate and a sweet vanilla grain finishing this beer. A bit dry, but overall fairly full bodied and ever so slightly lactic..most likely due to the vanilla. Sweet with slight hop bitterness in the finish. High carbonation levels, but good for a change. Some hints of nuttyness as well towards the finish...chocolate and cocoa everywhere...impressive!

Bottle from a generous friend in Phoenix!. Thanks Mojo! Pours an almost black color with nice tan head. Aroma of roasted malt with a hint of chocolate and coffee. Taste is slightly sweet and creamy from the oatmeal. Has a bit of hops in the finish. This is a nicely balanced sweet stout. Very drinkable and smooth.

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.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled in 11/2012. Pours clear nearly opaque dark brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of chocolate, roasted malt, oatmeal, cocoa, caramel, light coffee, floral, mint, and herbal earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with solid balance and complexity of roasted notes with a prominent amount of hops. Taste of dark chocolate, roasted malt, oatmeal, toast, caramel, light coffee, floral, mint, and herbal earthiness. Slight earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, roasted malt, cocoa, oatmeal, caramel, light coffee, and earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of roasted malt flavors with light-moderate hop presence; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors present after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and fairly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice oatmeal stout. Well balance with nice flavor robustness and complexity; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
