A very nice offering from Nimbus. Found this one on tap (along with the rest of the Nimbus beers) at No Anchovies pizza by campus.

This beer pours completely back, with a dark tan head which quickly dissipates to a fine-grained thin head.

The aroma is, as one would expect from this style, dominated by oatmeal and roasted malt.

Coffee and sweet malt are the primary flavors, but what really sets this beer apart from other oatmeal stouts is the strong hope flavor and bitterness. More than just well-balanced, the choice of hops here really adds in a positive way to the overall flavor, and does something to moderate the beer's slightly sweet finish. Very enjoyable.

Medium bodied, with a slightly bitter, malty aftertaste. This is a very drinkable and enjoyable example of what you can do with an oatmeal stout.
