burnt orange in color with a white head that doesnt stick around for long at all. aroma of sweet toasty malt pumpkin spice and some rye bread. possibly a bit of hay in the aroma as well. sweet bitter toasty flavors balanced nicely. medium body with a fairly dry somewhat spicy finish. good beer. i will be picking this one up again.

mahogany/deep red body with no head...aroma is of sugary malts, dark fruits, caramel, spice, and nuts...flavor is strong in the same sugary malts, an emphasis on cherry, and nice subtle caramels...nice palate, and a tasty treat

Transparent, mega-magnifying and cherry-copper in color with a foamy, soapy, grey and audibly popping head. Sweet caramel biscuits roll out the aroma, along with hints of honeyed oats, bran flakes, molasses snap cookies and a slight copper kiss. Sweet hazelnuts and subtly smooth caramel team with sugared bran for the primary flavor onset. Heartier profile than expected. Sticky toffee chews with Irish cream flavored nougat in the center. Medium-bodied, slightly thick and oily, and a substantive palate load, especially considering its parameters. Sweet caramel creations and dead-on carbonation levels contribute to a formidable, balanced end quotient. Cedar smoothness, butter almond, pistachios and vanilla bring things to a close. Well done.

On tap at Coles. Clear copper body with a small, dissapearing white head. Nutty, caramel aroma. Tasty roasted malty flavor. Sweet, hoppy. Bubbly mouthfeel. I’m a big fan of Irish Ales, this was nice, but not the greatest.

Nice clear copper pour with a head of yellow gray that laces just a bit. Sweet nose of sugars; caramel, dates, and other treats. Tastes like a liquid version of a Twix bar. Toasty with caramel. A bit of a sticky mouth feel and a sweet lingering finish. A good beer to buy by the 6’er it doesn’t get cloying and is easy to drink and works well with the food I have. Ap-4 ar-6 tas-7 pal-3 ov-15

Aroma of bread and fruit. Color is wonderful but head is pretty ho-hum. Flavor is grainy/malty with a bit of crisp hops (although a fairly spicy presence) and a little warmth due to the alcohol. A bit thin in the finish.

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2006 Draft at Floyd’s Pub, Chicago. Clear reddish body with a thin white head. Little aroma, slightly malty. Flavor was malty, decent but unremarkable. Body seemed thin.

From a 12 oz. long neck brown bottle with an "Please enjoy by", APR/04/06. Made a good appearance, poured a clear red hued copper with a small foamy pale tannish white head that reduced to a thin semi-bubbly lacing. Had a toasty malt aroma with a fruity hoppiness, whiffs of sweet alcohol and a little earthy nuttiness. Moderate carbonation and a slick, smooth, more of a light bodied than medium body mouth feel, good drinkability. Had a nice toasty, grainy malty taste with a gentle, smooth fruit hop bitterness, some nuttiness and a semi-dry, crisp, grainy, bitter finish.

On draft at a local winking lizard tavern. toasty, kicked off the st. patrick’s season, a reddish hue. Will look for in a bottle to see difference.

Bottle from OhioDad Thanks!

Pours a luscious strawberry blonde with a nice head and touchy-feely lacing. Aroma is a subtle smoke with fruity sweetness. Flavor is a blunt malt with hops in the finish. A sweet yet sour flavor, if you will. I’m detecting a bit of peach in there as well. Palate is a Slip-N-Slide. A deviation from the norm of Irish ales, albeit a nice deviation. Definite sixer purchase in the future.
