Our Old Monkeyshine Ale is an exceptional example of a true, traditional-style English Pub beer. Nimbus Old Monkeyshine Ale is medium bodied and possesses a distinct, dark roasted flavor. Its sweet malty taste is derived from liberal use of seven varieties of specialty malts and a touch of brown sugar. Our Old Monkeyshine Ale is dark in color, beginning with a slight caramel malt overtone and rounded with a relatively dry finish from its English Kent Goldings hops. The hops aroma is mildly subdued and the bitterness is just enough to balance the profile of this beer. Nimbus Old Monkeyshine Ale is a true premium ale and is priced accordingly. Weíre so proud of this beer for its body, taste, alcohol content and drinking enjoyment, it may just become our signature beer. Be warned: its wonderful malty sweetness camouflages the 8.0% alcohol by volume content. Itís a winner!

Sampled at the brewpub. I really donít get much of a nose here. Malt and rich fruit. The flavorvis much morebpronounced and vibrant. Lots of fruit. Dark and citrus varieties. Some anise pops in along with cocoa. This is entertaining to try. So much is going on.

Reddish amber color. Shy nose with some spicy notes. The palate shows a good mix of caramel and nuttiness. Mostly malt flavors, but good balance from the hops.

reggiedunlop (3536) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Pours an opaque chestnut with a thin tan head...light sediment. Aroma is malty...molasses and some fig...a bit of an alcohol/nail polish note but faint. Flavor is roasty and has a bit of chocolate and dark fruit...better than the aroma suggests. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is roasty/malty and a bit of chocolate.

arondee (598) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 16, 2011
On tap at Nimbus in south Tucson. Itís a very dark brown color with medium carbonation. The smell is caramel malts, roasted malts, and mild hops. The tastes is a little sweet, some caramel flavor, brown sugar, and a little bitterness from the hops. Itís like a light version of a barley wine. Overall pretty good.
