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.

A decent offering, well worth the money and i’d possibly get it again. Just didn’t knock my socks off. Not a bad brown ale, missing some of the nuttiness or chocolate id look for, but nice and sweet and drinkable.

Amber brown wih a modest head and minimal lace. Nutty caramel with hints of toffee flavor. Medium body and mouthfeel, minimal carbonation. Inoffensive, just not terribly interesting.

Standard nut bown ale, altough it’s kind of spritzy with the carbonation and nothing special in flavor.

I’ve read that back in the 19th century and south of the Thames, brown ales were the young Brit’s introduction to beer because they were sweet and weak in alcohol content. They were also popular with used car salesmen, according to George Melly. That’s fitting for Messiah because it’s sweet and easy to drink, but not necessarily interesting. Rusty brown color and light bodied.

Bottle. Poured a dark brown color with dark orange highlights. The head was thin and light brown. Big malty aroma, mostly buttery caramel, dates, and subdued roasted nuts. Medium bodied and moderately sweet. Molasses, caramel, and roasted nut flavors.

tomciccateri (1002) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - SEP 8, 2013
12-ounce brown bottle from the Clifton Park brewery. Pours an opaque brown, medium-bodied, early hop bitterness then a dry malty flavor. slightly sharp chocolate character. Overall, OKAY.

Bottled. Mahogany colour. Chocolatey, lemony aroma. Sweet, mild and clean with some acidity. Not very convincing.

Nice dark, thick, ale. Rolls nicely down the tongue and nice soft aftertaste.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - APR 30, 2004
Very dark brown with ruby highlights, light aroma of sweet-roasty-musty malt. Hops are subdued, and the malt character is distinctive though not very engaging; nutty and roasty or a bit mucky and not blended that well. A tad watery and less complex as it warms. Not on board for this one, and I find the boasty, religious-tainted bottle notes annoying.

JMerritt (1796) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2004
Dark brown with flecks of garnet. Head is initially medium and light brown, but quickly fades to nothingness like the head of a quickly poured soda. Slight whiffs of brown sugar and roasted malt in the aroma. Mildly sweet flavor, again with brown sugar and molasses notes, with a moderately roasty finish. Traces of aspirin in the aftertaste. Very lightly bitter. Carbonation is a touch too high, and the body is rather thin.
