Nimbus Old Monkeyshine

American craft beer number 272 comes all the way from Arizona in the shape of Old Monkeyshine brewed up by Nimbus Brewing Company. After the onslaught of IPAs that I have had recently, I am trying to clean my senses so that they can recoup their freshness in appreciating said IPAs.

Old Monkeyshine has been in the cellar for about a year, aging. The beer pours a deep brown with an inch of foam that leaves little to no lacing behind. Aroma and taste are similar: dark fruits are strong and mildly, at times, dominate the beer. Kept my interest enough to want to try some of their other brews. Enjoy!

Aroma: 7 (25%), Taste: 8 (25%), Look: 9 (15%), Drinkability: 8 (35%), Overall: 7.9

Useless Fact: The Washington Monument sinks 6 inches every year.
