3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Taco Mac. Nice looking pour - dark reddish brown with a creamy light tan head. Aroma is caramel apple, butterscotch, toasted malt and molassess. I liked the aroma better than the taste presented the toasted malt and caramel, but not a lot of complexity. There was a kind of metallic taste that kept creeping in and a bit more sourness than i prefer. Finishes dry with a lingering bitterness. Mouth feel was fairly thick despite only moderate carbonation. Interesting brew, glad Iíd tried.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a cola color with a sweet molasses aroma mixed with hops. Taste is the same with a caramel aftertaste. A little bitter after the swallow. The alcohol content comes through throughout the beer.

This beer has a definite English flavor with mild caramel. Slightly bitter with subdued malts. It is very drinkable.

12oz bottle. Cherry-mahogany color, tiny irregular head, small collar, semi-adhesive. Very slight aroma, nutty. Itís sort of similar to Belgian Dubbels Iíve had, but itís more bitter without being hoppy. Kind of burnt taste, some dark fruits. Definitely not bad, Iíd like to try it on tap.

Decent dark, ale, you can taste the roasted grains. Brown sugar on the palate. Refreshing premium ale. Dark yet light.

Bottle. Minimal coffee aroma. Clear dark brown, thin head, good lace. Light coffee initial / caramel in mid with some light spice notes and alc. / nominal malt in final. Medium body. Not so good, really. Not sure exactly what they were aiming for.

When we first moved to Scottsdale, we went to Nimbus. The food was good, and the beers were decent... but nothing blew me away. This was the best, from memory, of their beers. Last week I wanted to see if my palate had changed since we moved here, so I grabbed a bottle at Total Wine & More. My palate has changed, because I really enjoyed the beer this time. It got better as it heated up, and has a nice sweet finish to it. Itís a classic example of an English ale. Sorry to see that Nimbus is having a hard time financially.

1/19/13. 12oz bottle from 5 Points in Valdosta. Brown pour, lots of red under the light, with a small tan head that fades to a small ring and barely laces. Dark fruits, burnt caramel, and a touch of oxidation in the aroma. Rich maltiness with sweet, dark fruits, caramel, and some oxidation, but itís not unwelcome. Not bad.
