Love the bottle. Light chocolate notes in the smell and taste along with caramel, nuttiness, and even some vanilla. This is a great brown ale and an easy drinker.

Brown , but very ruby up to the light. Lots of bubbles rising and a root beer float like head that lasts. Nice lacing down the glass.The aroma is chocolate, a little brown sugar, and a bit of toffee, and sweet but a little earthy. The flavor is dark roasted malt, a little chocolate, and a pretty good bitter bite. Feel is average carbonation, medium thin body, and quite dry. ot bad, not great, middle of the pack.

One of the many reasons I miss AZ. This is the quintessential brown ale. Smooth and creamy. Comfort food for beer lovers. Miss you Nimbus!!!

Overcarbonated. Off flavors for a brown, possibly turning bad.

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter (bottled on?) date stamp of Nov/Dec.

Beer is clear dark brown but nearly opaque in the glass.
Small tan head quickly reduced to a thin partial crown leaving spotty lacing.

Aroma: Medium malts, toffee, chocolate and a hint of roasted nuts and vanilla.

Flavor: caramel and medium roasted malts and a touch of vanilla. Good sweet/bitter balance. A touch of smoke in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: smooth; coarse, medium carbonation imparts a bit of tingle. Medium body.

Overall: a modestly better than average nut brown ale.

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.
