COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep, bold nut brown ale beautifully balanced with rich dark malts and a complex hop character converging to reveal a simply enchanting elixir.

Either my palate was completely trashed by the few previous beers or this had absolutely no taste. I’ve never seen a beer this dark with so little flavor.

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Nice big chewy brown ale. Some chocolate and roasted malt really come through with the hop spice balanced. Doesn’t really fit into any style, it’s special on it’s own. 37 out of 100? Does anyone here like beer?

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Nice brown/amber color,small head that faded quickly leaving nothing behind.Light malty aroma with a little roast and some hops.The flaovr is pretty decent actually.Chocolate and maybe even a bit of caramel in there along with a nice roasty side,nicely sweet in the beginning with a mild bitterness at the end.Not exactly the brew God was thinking of when he handed down the great idea but it is pretty decent any way.L’Chaim

BeerandBlues2 (9685) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 9, 2005
Pours dark and rich brown, near mahogany, with a medium-sized tan frothy head. Hoppy caramel malt aroma with a faint roastiness to it. Patchy thin film lacing. Slightly bitter roasted caramel malt flavor with a hoppiness in the middle and a slight chocolate coffee finish. Medium-bodied and very refreshing, smooth and creamy palate.

the messiah poured a drak brown in color until held up to a light.then it turned a nice looking ruby red.its funny that this is called a brown ale cuz it smelled a little "brown" when i opened it.but we wont go into that.....i walked away from it a bit.let it sit,and came back.i then recieved an aroma of brown sugar.(and thats alot better)the flavor was really nice,with some brown sugar,hops,and caramel malts.i would be really into this,if it didnt have the initial aroma.

This is essentially the big brother of the Genesis ale, with the same basic flavour, but, as the name would suggest, it is a bit bolder and darker. At the end of the day, however, it is ultimately a generic brown ale.
