3.4/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

I have had this beer twice.

A - Pours a dark, nearly black beer. Carbonation was nearly no existent, along with no head.

S - Really hard to find, with out really giving the glass a swirl. Smells like roasted coffee and prunes, very pleasant, only if it were more prominent.

T - First notes that hit were the roasted coffee bitterness and slightly fruity. As the beer warmed up, it seemed to get sweeter, more toffie like, with the prune flavor coming out more. very tasty.

M - For an oatmeal stout I thought it was a little then, coupled with the really low carbonantion, there was nothing special about this.

D - Not one I will be craving, but definitely a beer I could have one or two of.

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.
