dionysus (1448) - Arizona, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Bottle pours deep red/amber with an off-white head. Aroma is yeast and buttered toffee backed up by some earthy hops. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of chocolate covered nuts and a slight herbal quality to it. Overall body is moderate and finishes with light bitterness. Definately one of the oddest irish reds i’ve ever had.

I hope this bottle was old, it was the yeastiest beer I have ever had, What? this was unbelievable it had the largest head I have ever had, it filled the entire glass with foam. So ridculious this beer was nuts. It just tasted like yeast too, I think the yeast just took over and sucked the taste right out of this one. wouldnt recommend this one

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2011 Bottle. I’ve had this many times, both bottled and on tap. This got incredibly better once they re-opened the brewery. It used to be light, thin, and not very flavorful. Now, it’s deep, with a caramel sweetness and a smooth mouthfeel. ETA - another re-rate here. This beer is legit now.

SSKD814 (854) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2010
A- dark red/brown body with light tan head. great head retention. S- malty, carmel, nuts, maybe hints of chocolate. T- nuts, carmel, and malt up front. Bitter hop aftertaste. Hints of chocolate may be in the background. P- medium weight body and very fizzy. O- this was interesting and worth a try. Quite complex taste to it. The carbonation gets in the way of the character though. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-06-2007 19:07:59 --

Clear amber, thin off-white head, and somewhat lacey. Diacatyl bombarded nose, diacatyl bombarded flavors...the nose...butterscotch and toff. The flavors, toffee and grassy hops...quite hoppy actually...but diacatyl is everwhere. I wouldn’t rate it but it seemed the brewery reps were there and serving it at the flour city brewer fest in rochester, so be it. A lesson in diacatyl awareness...should be served to anyone studying becoming a beer judge.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2011 [1873-20081205] Cask. Beery aroma has lots of yeast grains and multigrain characteristics. Slightly hazy, dark red brown body with quick off-white bubbles. Heavy yeast multigrain malt flavour. Boozy medium-full body. Booziness is fine but the rest is heavy. (6/3/6/3/12) 3.0

[3525B-20101228] Tap. Some grainy malt in the aroma. Slightly hazy, dark brown body with long-lasting creamy off-white head. Grainy flavour has a little toasted buttery malt and a nice sweet aftertaste. Medium body. Perfect for sipping while watching Canada beat the Czech Republic 7-1 at the World Juniors!! (6/3/6/3/12) 3.0

ChainGangGuy (4395) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 28, 2008
Appearance: Pours a garnet-hued body with a bubbly, off-white head. Smell: A simple, straight-forward aroma of dark caramel and toasted grains. Taste: Dark caramel maltiness with a slight sweetness. Lightly astringent toasted graininess. Earthy hop character and medium bitterness. Finishes dry. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Eh, it’s just an average red at best.
