Served on tap into a pint glass

A- Poured a really dark brown with nice frothy mocha colored head that left splashy lace

S- Big sweet belgian chocolate,

T- Big dark cherry, sweet belgian chocolate, and Dr. Pepper like flavors. Some light roasted coffee ground notes. Lots of sweet caramel and bready malt character

M- Very creamy and smooth, medium to full bodied, finished dry, soft carbonation

O- Really nice sweet stout with complex flavor profile and a wonderful smooth mouthfeel. A top notch stout.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

A nice oatmeal stout, Nebula poured a typical dark brown-black with a patchy tan head. Smell of dark malts and licorice. Taste was a smooth blend of chocolate, raisin, and licorice, with definite pronounced tones of--as my astute wife noted--Dr. Pepper. Definitely an interesting flavor to pick up in a stout. Heavy-medium mouthfeel, and pretty smooth. Nice drink overall.

Dark black colour with brown hightlights. Foamy tan head. Poor head retention.

Decent roasty, nutty aroma. Mild coffee. Slightly herbal.

Nice roasty coffee with a touch of caramel sweetness. Light earthiness. Moderate bitterness. Good.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fine.

A balanced but full flavoured stout. Not too big on either chocolate, roast or coffee. Good.

A: Dark brown/black color with a medium bodied head that sticks around for a little while.
S: Oats, honey, coffee, chocolate amongst other things. A very nice smell.
T: Tastes just like it smells. A pleasant combination of coffee, spices, chocolate and oats.
M: Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.
D: One of my all time favorites. Block 15 hit the nail on the head with this one. It's delicious and smooth. I rarely visit Block 15 without ordering at least one of these.

Block 15 now calls this a Naked Oat Stout. It states on their menu that they use golden naked oats, rather than rolled oats in the recipe. Visiting from Portland a few times a year, it is good to see the subtle tweaking this brewpub is doing. Their beers are becoming really outstanding. Pours a jet black pint with a full finger tight brown head. Aromas of chocolate, caramel, burnt sugar and molasses. There is a lot going on in the flavor world here, chocolate cake, nuts, and a tiny bit of roast. Mouthfeel is full, but not cloying with an amazing smoothness.

Served too cold, but I don't mind. As the beer approaches a more favorable serving temp I have time to admire the tall rocky head of dark foam. The head recedes in a stir of crème de mint fragrance and I take in the opaque body.

When it's finally ready for drinking I note strong bittering with a pronounced roast barley flavor that's almost acrid. It's a little tight in the body where a bit of creaminess might make an appropriate showing in an oatmeal stout. Laceless too, but a very worthy ale all in all.
