Bottle. One helluva malty nose. Very roasted, smokey, malty nose. Way too much smoke. I might as well of drank this swill out of a dirty ashtray. mds (2256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2004
bottle from Trader Joe’s in Phoenix for only $1! Deep mahogany in colour with a small off-white head. Strong aroma of hops and some sweet caramel. Awesome complexity, nutty along with roasted malt. I thoroughly enjoyed this and am hoping to visit the brewery if I make it out to Tucson next week. turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Bottle poured a dark brown with a nice creamy head.
Very nice aroma! Toasty, sweet, and light hopps.
Medium body with rich, sweet roasted flavor and easy finish.
This is a very good beer thats getting better as it warms Terminus (3740) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 1, 2004
tap at brewpub-pours a deep amber hue with very nice lacing (all of their beers have good lacing it seems). grainy, nutty, chocloate, earthy aroma. Lots of fresh malt grain flavors going on in the palate. Some saaz hops detectible in the finish-put a nice tingle on the tongue. decent brown ale Padron4KM (810) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Pours dark brown with a large tan head. Nice lacing.

Aroma is sweet and malty, with a faint scent of hops.
flavor is roasty,light coffee, light chocolate, light bitter.
Opaque with a big tan head. Highly nutty and lightly bittered. Creamy consistency. Lightly coffee’d. Pretty good. scottyg (79) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2004
Definitely one of Nimbus’s best brews. Heavy enough for your typical dark beer drinker, but light (not in color) enough for someone new to the scene. Nice hints of nuts and chocolate. Nice color and head. GEOBRAU (188) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2004
Bottle: dark brown to opaque in appearance.Sweet followed by roasted subdued bitterness. Brown Ale? A bit more of a Porter if you ask me. Drinkable nontheless. PullMeABeer (203) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 17, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 12 oz bottle. Pours brick red/brown with a fluffy tan dimpled head. Aroma is sweet and malty. I truly do not see any bubbles rising from the beer. Flavor is nutty malt and a great balance of slight sweetness and bitterness that seem to void each other out into perfect equilibrium. Light/Medium body. Very tasty. Re-Rate from 4.2 to 3.5. aleman2004 (8) - Alabama, USA - FEB 18, 2004 does not count
Smooth brew with roasty/nutty flavor, true to its' name. Nice finish. A excellent beer of it's style.
