Nice dark brown color with Malty caramel taste. It’s a light on alcohol and body but the overall taste is good with chocolate melding with citrus..

12 oz bottle. Pours a very dark brown that is almost black with a medium sized tan head. It has a very nice chocolate malt aroma. It has a espresso and dark chocolate taste to it with some vanilla. This beer is outstanding. I really enjoyed it.

Bottle (great label!). Very dark brown but clear enough that reds show through light. Little head with almost no retention. Very surprising fresh hops aroma above some general roasted and smoky notes. When chilled, the hops bitterness dominates the sweetness of the malt and the roasted aromatics and flavors. At room temp. the mouthfeel is impressively velvety, the hops are toned-down, and the dark malt and toasted grain sweets are boosted. Finishes, at room temp., very sweet, much like a thinner brown. A fine brew, but I wish the body were boosted a bit to improve its roundness.

12-oz bottle. Cute marketing. Clear dark brown color with a medium foamy head. Good lacing on the glass. Aroma is like a baby porter. Sweet malts with some dark fruit tinges. A mild roasty and pleasant aroma. Taste was sweet and creamy. Delicious in the front of the mouth. Tiny sour notes on the finish. Finished clean and relatively quick. Body is light to medium. Texture is watery. Very drinkable. A nice brown ale.

Graduation weekend in Bloomington. HeBrew Messiah Bold is a deep brown color with no head. The aroma is fruity with a sweet malt background and the flavor is similar with a smooth finish that is interesting as it is neither creamy nor watery.

My first reaction was nit had an initial metallic taste. It didn’t have the malt smoothness ihave learned to expect from a Brown. It seemed to be over-hopped, leaving a hop dominant aftertaste.

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?

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2008 Looking for a wee bit more on this one - as always. A nice but faint hoppy and chocolate and nut like aroma. A very smooth taste though medium to light bodied. I enjoyed this one but would not go out of my way for it.

It’s a brown ale. It’s a little roasty, not too dry, but there’s not too much to it beyond that. It’s not even passover Kosher!
