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.

Darkover (1512) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2004
Dark brown with a medium beige head. Aroma of bread and nuts. Flavor of sweet malt and nuts. Pretty good and drinkable.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Dark, caramel-y brown in color, with reddish foot and side, with a good, 1/4 " faint-tan head of foam with sticks it out for a bit. Aroma: led by notes of nuts and toffee, rich and malty, but still well-hopped and full of character. Taste: powerful carbonation on this one, bubbly through the mouthfeel, texture is tasty, toasty, dark. This is a lively brown ale, smooth in the extreme, ultimately drinkable. Gets a bit too sweet and cola-ish for my own tastes. but if you’re merely searching for an easily drunk, enjoyable-enough beverage to drink the night away with, the Messiah will do.

Dark brown color, tan head. Malty with notes of caramel, toffee, earth, medium-bodied, OK.

LordNeuf (136) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Had quite a hoppy feel to start and finished malty. Kinda reminded me of a Scotch Ale, but stronger in flavor and a bit more hoppy.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2004
Well…. What should I say? It’s not a beer with a great deal of depth, intrigue, complexity, or character; the name is the greatest attribute. The beer pours a dark chestnut colored body with a light tan head. The aroma and flavor are roasted with malt, a touch of toffee and toasted wheat bread. Palate is medium… it’s not a bad beer but it’s just lacking any real personality.

madsberg (10136) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2004
Bottled: Dark amber coloured. Head is light beige. Malt, light spices, sweetness in the aroma. Malt and some flowers in the flavour. Vague bitterness in the end. Boring.

belgianhomebrew (646) - Acworth, Georgia, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Nice malty, somewhat roasted aroma, with hints of vanilla. Roastiness is balanced well throughout. A good brown ale, quite enjoyable.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2004
Malty Twizzlers nose, low hops. Dark ruby brown clear, with off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts wth sweet malts, Twizzlers, low acidty. Finish as some bitter aspect, but nothing definitive. Light sweet-sour after.

Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - JUL 17, 2004
light malty aroma, reddish brown with a thin long lasting head, very biscuity with hints of brown sugar, a thing body and overall very watery, you could say I’m not a believer

hopscotch (8785) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2004
Crystal clear copper ale with a small, creamy, khaki-colored head. Cirrus lacework. Malty, sweet aroma. A bit floral and chocolatey. Maybe a note of vanilla and a hint of port. The well-balanced flavor is lightly chocolately and roasty with a suggestion of buttermilk. Medium-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Short, crisp finish.
