Messiah Nut Brown Ale

  • SRM Color : 22
  • Brewer: Shmaltz Brewing Company
  • Brewer's 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.
  • Recommended Glassware: A Conic or Nonic
  • Russ' rating: 9 of 10
  • With the brew: Second Chances
  • Comments: I first reviewed the Coney Island Lager from Shmaltz and it did not fare well. But someone from the staff of Shmaltz contacted me on Reddit and thanked me for putting it on my blog regardless. This professional act inspired me to ask him what beer he was most proud of and one he mentioned was the Messiah, so I decided to give Shmaltz a second chance. I am VERY glad I did! I have long been a fan of Nut Browns and this one is I think my favorite of the style. The pour was nice and thick and the aroma was heavily malted and sweet. The head was of average size bubbles (0.5mm - 0.7mm) and lasted the entire beer. The beer was darker than many of the nut browns I have had and the flavor was bolder. The drink itself was malty with an earthy tone that is pleasant and slightly bitter coming off the back of the tongue. There was a hint of hops that brought the sweetness down to a lovely level. This will be the benchmark for Nut Browns to come. 

Do you agree? Do you think I completely missed on this one? Feel free to leave a comment below, give me a +1, or "Like" my post!
