3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a cloudy amber-brown with a medium creamy tan head. Aroma is sweet, with nuts, dark fruit and chocolate. Flavor is also lightly sweet, with some spiciness on the rather watery finish. A good brew, but I wanted something more from it.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This cloudy brown ale poured with a thin tan head that quickly disappeared. There is an acidic aroma. The flavor is of smoky malt, caramel and candy sugar with a chalky slightly bitter finish. Itís fairly well-balanced, but a bit thin.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle from Bev Mo Carmel Mountain. My favorite beer from Nimbus. Pours a deep, slightly hazed amber with a small beige head.......some lacing. Nose had hints of caramel, nutmeg, citrus fruits, and a light hop presence. Finish was smooth and very inviting, made me want another.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Nice looking dark amber color. No real aroma. Flavor is very much malt-forward, with no real hop presence. Strong, flavorless beer. Whereís the hops?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Opaque dark brown and orange colour with a tan film on top. Aroma was citrus, nuts and milk chocolate as it warmed. Slight chocolate and hops in the flavour. Maybe a little simple but easy to drink and enjoyable.

I would have liked a bit more hops in this one, but perhaps Iím just too used to barleywines. Beautiful dark amber color.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Opaque light-brown pour with a thin white film on top. Aroma of caramel malt, a little roasted malt, alcohol, and the dry english hops. The beer sort of tastes like all the flavors cancelled each other out. The roasted malt and hops cancel the sweet malt, and whatís left is a little bland. Some nuttiness and dry hops in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. I was expecting an ESB when I opened this. I was glad it wasnít. Brownish reddish pour with decent head. Malty sweet aromas. Roasted coffee, nutty too. Flavors were similar with some vanilla and earth in to make it interesting. I liked it more than I thought I would.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear brown pour, medium almond head that stays. Aroma is toffee. Flavor is toffee, chocolate, with the roasted malts and coffee coming through later. Nutty, caramel sweetness with roastiness and smoke in the background and aftertaste. This taste damn good.
