Naturally carbonated in the cask (real ale style) with a very nice head. Clear and dark ruby red. High in hop flavors. Some subtle roast notes from the malt as well.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2015 bottle at home - pours red-brown with white head - nose is malty, caramel. Taste is malt and caramel with hints of dark fruit cake. Pretty good beer - cut above the normal Irish red.

Tayeth (324) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2014
Geruch sehr blumig mit Honig und frischen Früchten. Geschmack dann erstaunlich erdig, fast sogar rauchig mit einer ausgewogenen Bittere und einem angenehmen Malzgeschmack.

Erzengel (4745) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 25, 2014
The beer starts malty-dry. Hints of roast. The mainpart is dry-fruity (cherries, plums), nicely bitter and a bit dusty-dry. Cereals but not pushy. Interesting combination, a bit "red", smooth. Hints of dry caramel, slightly bitter till the end.
Very interesting, a bit like a "special grain" brew. Nice! --> 12/12/12/12

ciaranc (1059) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 28, 2014
500ml bottle from Redmonds. Chestnut brown, foamy off white head, doesnt last. Smoke, toasted malt notes, nuts, leather, hints of coffee in the aroma. Lovely. Simple toasted, nutty malt notes up front, a little chewy chocolate followed by more roasted nuts toward the finish. Medium body, tight carbonation, a little fizzy. Long complex finish. This is really good.

Not sure why this is labeled an Irish Ale, which usually means a reddish, bready malt beer, because this is really more of a Brown Ale in my eyes. Copper to brown color, aroma is of sweet to bready malts, large off white head that dissipated quickly. Carbonation level meets the expectation. Taste is of a well crafted brown, malts are forward with this beer, slight dark fruit notes. Hops are evident at the end, some pine, not getting citrus however. Finish is wonderful, very easy to drink.

Pint from Tig Bruic, or however that’s spelled. A really enjoyable darkish beer. Smokey and a little citrus. I enjoyed it a lot.

Cask at brewpub on Dingle peninsula. A phenomenal beer - the best I’ve tried in Ireland. Dark brown, a touch reddish colour, off white head. Slightly sweet robust malty aroma. Taste is a fabulous roasted malt with a nice tartness to it as well, smokiness and a touch of hops. Lots of flavour. Very enjoyable.
