Thanks to bennetj17 for this brew. You Arizonans got a good thing there with Nimbus, was very pleased with the local treats thrown in by a great trader.
This one is black. Had to leave my dark living room for a quick inspection in better lighting, but still didnt let any light through the black stout. A generous 2 finger head the colour of espresso crema formed on the pour, and thick and generous lacings graced the glass once the head subsided in this decently but not overly carbonated stout.
Treacle, espresso, creamy oats and a touch of earthy, bitter hops.
The guys at Nimbus got this one right. Starts with a hint of treacle and spice, perhaps nutmeg, and then the espresso flavours make a graceful appearance before the oats. Finishes with a touch of mild an earthy hop spice.
A nice medium bodied stout. Nicely balanced, burnt malts give a nice espresso character to this stout, and it bitterness is pleasantly balanced by sweeter treacly malts, some creamy oats that add a velvety feel, and mild and spicy hops. Wish there was just a little more oat presence.
A very drinkable classic oatmeal stout. Good session fare, especially for a stout, and would also make a great introduction to the style. Also comes at a great price. If only it was available locally, i could see this being something i kept on hand.
