COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark brown ale deriving maltiness from two types of American crystal malts, yet not overly heavy in body. Rounded with a nutty flavor from chocolate malt and a hint of black patent malt. Finished with aromatics from Czech Saaz hops.

I used to say that I wasnít a fan of nut brown ales... until I had one from Nimbus. This is simply an amazingly good beer. Hours later, I was still savoring the rich, tasty flavor! Unfortunately for others itís probably not widely available outside of Arizona.

Very good. I can only find it a few places in San Diego, but I when I do I buy everything they have. This is like a Newcastle on Black Tar Heroin. Extremely good beer. Starts nice, finishes with a nap.

This ale is simply stunning. If I havenít had one in a while merely inhaling a freshly opened bottled almost brings tears to my eyes. The only reason I rated Taste at 9 is because it canít quite match the ecstasy of that aroma. Iíll leave the Overall at 18 only to acknowledge my neophyte status.

Wow, stumbled upon this in Wal-Mart of all places. For a dark beer this is very smooth and drinkable. A well crafted full-bodied beer. It has been a while since I have tasted a beer this good

Man, this is solid good beer. Totally on the mark for style and session to boot. Poured with a nice sized foamy, frothy, cream colored head that lasts quite a while and lots of lace. Color is a clear, dark walnut. Aroma is nut oil, malt, cocoa, and a little bittersweet. Flavor is exactly the same only jacked up. Body and carbonation are excellent and perfect for the style. Session beer for sure.

Very porter-like. Dark and rich, with roasted coffee flavors. It was truly a pleasure to drink.

On draft at Hamiltonís Tavern, rich coffee type hue with thin brown head. Light roasted malts lead to a sweeping warm hop, very deep roasting/chewy nut layer. Mild abv. with a sweet quick finish. A perfect accopanyment to my bar nuts and leftover enchilada flavored cheetos~

The appearance of a porter with a gourmet dark ale taste. An excellent brew by an excellent company. Disregard the infected ratings-this brewery is completely safe, legitimate, and the largest barrel production in Arizona.

12oz bottle pours clear mahogany with copper Ė amber hues and lasting tan head. The aroma offers up ample amounts of toffee, roasted malts and earthiness mixing together very nicely. The taste begins with a brief straight up maltiness and is quickly joined by sweet toffee candy, some roasted malts, a pleasing dank earthiny maltiness and just a kiss of sweet dark fruity esters. Wow! This is scratching me right where I itch. Hits the spot for sure. Nice!
