Served in a shaker pint, part of my Arizona trip beers. Beer is brown, almost black with a thin tan head of small bubbles.

Aroma is roasty, almost like coffee.

Beer is medium to light in body, a little sweet, quite roasty, almost smoky in the back. An interesting beer for sure, I'd have it again.

Nice dark brown pour with 1 inch head. when first tasting it I kept getting a nutty and toasty caramel flavor but smooth when it goes down. The smell- When I first poured it in to my glass I would get hints of coffee beans. This beer will not be my first choice but I think I would try it again someday.

Taken from notes dated 5/30/2013; enjoyed at the brewery and not the bistro...

OG: 1.060 FG: 1.014 ABV: 5% IBU: 36

Clear, dark brown body w/thin head.

Rich, dark bread scent; brown sugar & burnt caramel.

Sweet malt flavors with a nice complementary bitterness; toasted grains.

Medium-bodied; clean; semi-dry finish.

Good, rich & flavorful brown ale; a good representation of the style.

Serving type: on-tap

Enjoyed this beer on tap at Nimbus Brewery.

T: Sweet malt flavor with a roasted chocolate malt background and finishes slightly bitter and hoppy.

M: Medium carbonation and medium body.

O: Decent Brown ale – worthy of a try.

Oh god, I don't know if my bottle was out of date or what. I could hardly drink this one, and couldn't even finish it I disliked it so much. Tasted like nasty nuts were cooked into the beer or something, and had a very metal like finish to it. Nearly no head, and barely carbonated at all.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, nuts, and a slight cocoa aroma. Taste is much the same with a slight tartness in the flavor. There is a mild roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a great smell but the taste isn't as good in my opinion.

this is a tasting of an older bottle. Beer poured into pint glass, color is light brown, head is very thin and dissipates quickly.

Smell is mild chocolate and toasty malts, mild nutty and toffee notes, not fresh but not too old.

Taste is a little sweet, light caramel and chocolate, strong bitter mouthfeel but not too much in the flavor in terms of hops, maybe some grassiness.

Mouthfeel is a little bitter, but not overly so, expected for this type of brew. Lingering sweetness helps to balance, but bitterness lingers on tongue.

Overall, this is a beer with good bones, maybe a bit above average for a brown ale; would like find it again some time in AZ.
