Tampa, Fl - Total Wine - 22 oz bomber. Light brown - tea colored pour with an off-white head. decent lacing. Earthy, peat-like aroma, quite pleasant. Flavor has some sweet toffee. a hint of milk chocolate, some back end vegetable notes that remind me a bit of rhubarb. Mouthfeel is decently thick. A very flavorful Irish Ale.

Bottle from TW; poured a burnt orange color with a large off white head. Aroma of caramel, earth, orange, earth, and "Irish" malt. Flavor had a nice pleasantness to it, but nothing really substantial. NOt much deviation from the style, but good enough.

This poured a deep reddish copper with an off white head. The nose was a blast of roasted nuts. The palate is heavy on the malt, and the hops are present, but extremely mild. Bitter finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle   Copper with a deep red tinge, thing sudsy off-white head, sparce lacing.   Malty nose, a
little mealy and nutty.   Low hop, if at all.   Some cereal.   Really nutty and mealy on the tongue,
semi-sweet, with faint wet cardboard and overcooked vegetable on the finish.   Has a certain malty aspect that
seems very cereal like.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not as interesting as other reds.   A little
too mealy and cereal like for my tastes.   Prefer Brian Boru over this one.   Not bad, but just not my style I
