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

Ungstrup (29828) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2004
A deep red beer with a fine but disappearing head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of roasted bread. The flavor is dominated by roasted malt with notes of wood and cowberries, before it ends on a dry note. It has a nice palate.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2014 As He’Brew Messiah Bold
Dark mahogany color. Aroma of caramel, roasted nuts, wet soil. The mouthfeel is quite dry, with a strong dark caramel taste and some roasted and chocolate malt. Bitter but without hop quality. Unimpressive.

harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2009
Bottle from Utobeer. Very dark brown colour with thin disappearing head. Some dry malt on aroma, some yeastiness. Mouthfeel is ok, but nothing interesting, flavours are some sour fruit and some dry malt. Bit toasty. Bit of nuttiness I suppose, some drying on tongue on finish. Fine, but rather bland and dull I thought. Not even as interesting as a British premium bitter of this strength. The malts are there, but don’t impart sufficient flavour. No bad or off flavours.
