3.66/5 rDev -3.9%
A small head of off white foam on top of a clear, dark brown body. An aroma of toffee and musty hops. Dry, caramel and burnt toast with some molasses in the finish. Medium body, average carbonation, and a dry finish. Not bad, fairly bland but inoffensive.

No head really on a deep amber brown clear body. No lace really. Aroma of breads, toasted malts, nuts, molasses and earthy hops. Flavor is also very toasty opening with nuts, toasted malts and earthy but finishing with brown sugar, caramel, rye . Medium body and moderate carbonation. The alcohol is very well hidden. This one is flavorful and definitely one of the better of the style.

12 oz bottle pours a Pepsi brown with good head and lacing. Aroma is molasses with dark fruit. Taste is caramel, tobacco, dark fruit. Mouthfeel is little harsh, but nice dry finish. Alcohol is well hidden. I'm liking this better as it warms up - I bet it's really good on tap. Not a style that I'm typically interested in but I can see the appeal.

Enjoyed this beer on tap at Nimbus Brewery.
A: Pours a clear light brown-golden hue with a thin white lace that quickly dissipates leaving a decent lace.
S: Slightly fruity malt aroma.
T: Similar to the smell there is a fruity malt flavor that finishes slightly dry.
M: Medium carbonation and medium body.
O: Decent English Strong Ale – lots of alcohol but blended in nicely with the malt.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into my new silipint.
A: Poured dark reddish-brown, with a proper, creamy tan head that lasted a good while and left good lacing. Coarse looking carbonation bubbles.
S: Smells like toasted sweet malt with hints of brown sugar and caramel.
Taste: Moderately strong flavor featuring dark malts with hints of dark fruits, caramel, and roasted nuts. Good sweet/bitter balance.
M: Medium-low carbonation works well for this full-bodied beer, Very smooth.
O: A flavorful English style pub ale with remarkably well hidden alcohol. Recommended.

This is an English style ale, so to all the other reviews; I personally expect some bittering to come out of it. Very happy to see this style from a local craft brewery, nice job!
Dark with minimal head, roasted malt and caramel, hint of licorice bittering after taste. High in alcohol but not syrupy or heavy at all.
Goes down real easy in spite of the high alcohol content, be careful!
