Why is it called 'No Evil'? It's a wonderfully wicked beer!!! The aroma and taste both had a complex blend of roasted, malty, smoky, coffee, maple syrup(?) mixture that was awesome!!! Too bad it is so strong....or else I would have had more! justinlaz (18) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 21, 2011
A great, flavorful and strong beer (8%). Its a great mix of fruit and caramel and is surprising every time I take a sip. A great find for any true connoisseur. Gusler (2652) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 30, 2003
A nice deep mahogany color on the pour, the head is moderate in size, the texture spumescent, beige in color and as it dissipates, the left over lace a nice coating on the glass. Floral nose, sweet malt, caramel and quite fresh and pleasing to the senses, with the start sweet and malty, the top is middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is a “Hop Heads” delight; boom right in the palate as the hops over run your taste buds, mildly acidic, dry as a desert bone aftertaste and a real treat for this old strong ale lover. drewcifer85710 (158) - Youngstown, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2003 Sweet English Strong ale from Nimbus. Great flavor, very malty and skimpy on hops. Great smooth mouthfeel. This should be treated as a dessert beer, I think; after a pint or two the sweetness is overpowering and will get to tasting like cough syrup. Wonderful brew up to that point, however. Incidentally, the brewery calls this one an English Strong, not Belgian. Also, this is the SAME BEER as Old Bumble/Old Monkeyshine, it's been through a couple name changes. Interesting how a name change can take this from an English to a Belgian. PullMeABeer (203) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 2, 2005
Bottled. Pours a deep dark brick red. No carbonation and just a paper-thin tan head. Some lacing. Aroma of earthy alcohol, a little dusty and salty, with tones of sweet medium roast malts, and a background of English hops. Flavor is sweet and light syrupy, nutty/toffee and light alcohol, and nice gentle finish. Nice mouthfeel with the low carbonation. Body is somewhat thin but a little creamy at the same time. Good Stuff.

Sweet toffee aroma. Auburn color with little head. Lots of toffee malts in the flavor, with brown sugar, molasses, a little butter, well balanced with some earthy bitterness. Delicious brew - one of the best in the style I have had in some time. Thanks Sebastian. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Nice. Nutty with malty sweetness and a surprisingly dry finish. A tad of bitterness too.

From bottle poured into a glass...very dark & thick with a beige head...taste is strong and sweet with a slight Hoppiness. I taste hints of roasted nuts, coffee and chocolate.
