look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Pours an opaque black with ruby highlights. Moderate coffee head falls fairly fast. No lace. Aroma is sweet with a roasted bitterness. Taste is fairly simple, sweetness overlaid with a roasted character. Not particularly chocolate or coffee, just roasted. Finish is bitter and long lasting, something a little off that I can't quite figure out. Mouthfeel is starts thin as it's cold but gets nice when it warms. Smooth and silky.

2.31/5  rDev -35.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

12 oz bottle. Label notching appears to indicate a bottled on date of Feb. 2014.

Pours clear dark brown with a small head that soon reduces to a thin, partial coat.

Aroma: sweet and overly floral with faint traces of dark malts.

Flavor: Contaminated? Not so bad or off style that I am sure it is a bad bottle, but it certainly is a bad stout.

Feel: mildly astringent; medium body.

O: not sure if its bad bottles or poor beer, but I've recently had 3 of these from Nimbus, crossing 2 styles. I won't be finishing this one.
