2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Small light brown head, short lived, spotty lacing. Dark brown color is lightly hazy with light red highlights. Nose is choco nutty with a faint sourness. Body is med/light, bland mouthfeel. Light chocolate flavors, a hint roasty with some tobacco notes and that little touch of sourness coming through. Finish is almost dry with a light astringency. Raspy, dry prickly mouthfeel. Thanks to cbkschubert for the trade.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. A hazy deep red beer with a thin orange head. The aroma is sweet malty with a slightly acidic edge. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and light notes of straw, leading to a dry bitter finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

2.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark, coffe brown. Not Starkbucks French Roast opaque brown but more like an over stuffed Folgers. Throws a shallow spritzy froth. Aroma is slightly malty with an offensive burnt celery whiff. Possesses ample residual effers with medium weight nectar. Flavors are dry, woodsy, smokey, offensive with the forward celery. Now heres the best thing about it. The bitterness. It dries up like a mouth full of beach sand which tries like hell to clean off that celery stink, and almost does. Even with the fantastic bittering, I canít drink more than one bottle. The celery is way too much.
Overall: a bitter sweet one night stand.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz Bottle via cbkschubert (thanks!) Pours a semi hazy dark reddish brown with a tiny beige head. Not getting much in the nose here, perhaps some subtle chocolate malts and floral hops.Taste starts bitter, then turns to some toffee, some nuttiness and ends with some earthy hops and a semi-tart finish. may be somewhat infected and beginning to show sins of such. I have gotten several of their beers from different traders, and either they are somewhat infected or they all have a very OFF slightly sour twang for some reason...but why? This is not a bad beer, but also is not one i would care for again. So far i have been very unimpressed with Nimbus.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a fairly dark brown with a short lived tan head. Scents of dried fruit, malt, and weak coffee. Roasted flavors prevalent throughout, coffee, prunes, and sweetness with a slight bitterness in the finish. Not a big fan of coffee scented or darker roasted brews. Thanks to Flaco Alto for the bottle.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nice off white head, which recedes, but covers the top, and gives good lace. Malty aroma. At first tastes like an irish red, then all of a sudden a metalic sour copper taste overwhelms your whole mouth. It may be spoiled, as the sensation and taste are like nothing else i have ever tasted, and itís pretty offensive to me. Yuck. Had to pour out two thirds of it! I had high hopes when is saw this from a local brewer. Very dissapointed.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. Pours clear ruby, thin off-white head, spotty lacing. Nose is lightly boozy, red fruit, spice, some spicy/herbal hop notes. Flavours of red fruit/toffee, spice. I just didnít groove on this one, I found it watery, bland, confused, and pedestrian. Nothing I would purchase again.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Appearance: Pours a midnight ruby with a khaki pin stripe.
Aroma: Apples and red apple skin and alcohol.
Taste: Red apple skins, finishes with bitter hops.
Mouthfeel: Watery, big time.
Overall: A lousy beer. Iím hoping it was a bad bottle, and not what the beer was supposed to be. Also, maybe Iím sensitive, but the bottle with the monkey squashing a water melon was a bit bizarre to me.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark mahogany with a fluffy off-white head. Clear with no sediment in bottle. Grainy malt aroma with some cooked veggies, borderline offensive really. More grainy malt in the flavor as well, with minimal hops. If thereís a positive to this beer at all, itís that the 8.2% ABV is not detectable at all. Finish seems to indicate some oxidation. Thin mouthfeel with a watery finish and moderate carbonation. Second beer from these guys, and second loser. I wish they would date their bottles so that I would know that this was fresh or not. This was nothing like the commercial description would prepare you for.
