This beer has a definite English flavor with mild caramel. Slightly bitter with subdued malts. It is very drinkable. Caytinator (1005) - Waco, Texas, USA - APR 2, 2013
12oz bottle. Cherry-mahogany color, tiny irregular head, small collar, semi-adhesive. Very slight aroma, nutty. It’s sort of similar to Belgian Dubbels I’ve had, but it’s more bitter without being hoppy. Kind of burnt taste, some dark fruits. Definitely not bad, I’d like to try it on tap. adeishaqra (45) - - MAR 22, 2013
Decent dark, ale, you can taste the roasted grains. Brown sugar on the palate. Refreshing premium ale. Dark yet light. maekchu (4104) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 15, 2013
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. Sully33Zero (4) - - MAR 9, 2013 does not count
Perfect amber coloring with slight white lacing. Taste of smooth nuts and brown sugar. Could never guess its 8%. Great pub beer!

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. It’s a classic example of an English ale. Sorry to see that Nimbus is having a hard time financially. drowland (9184) - Georgia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
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 it’s not unwelcome. Not bad. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Nice. Nutty with malty sweetness and a surprisingly dry finish. A tad of bitterness too.

31 Dec 2012, bottle. amber/nut brown, clear. nose is burnt toast, faint raisins, some oatmeal. thin body and moderately fizzy. burnt toast up front turns to slightly meaty, raisins, maybe some smokiness. alcohol isn’t really noticeable. decent. Westmeister (2127) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Growler. Pours dark brown with red edges and an off white head. Aroma is sweet malts, muddled earthiness, dark fruits. Taste is the same, but with a candy like flavor as well. Alcohol is hidden. Strange brew though, as the combo of flavors and scents just didn’t work particullary well for me.
