On-tap, this pours a dark brown color with a slight head. The aroma is full of toffee, caramel, and raisin. The flavor is bold but yet fairly light for flavor. Interesting for the style.

Sample at the brewpub. Came regular and nitro. Certainly differences between the two. The nitro brings out ,ore sweetness and cocoa. It is a bit like drinking sugar toast with covoa on it. The rehular is maltier in that Irish style. Quite smooth and just a bit earthy. Both versions are nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at The Majestic Theatre bar for Derby viewing and the second day of Madison’s Craft Beer Week. Dispensed to plastic, showing a deep, ruby highlighted, brown tone, with some quickly diminishing, tan head froth, but a persistent ring & film, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was toasted, with a touch of roastiness, light grain, subtle spice, and toffee. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste continued the pleasant malt, and dark caramel/toffee sweetness, and included a moderate, roasted & earthy hop bitterness. The plastic might not have done it full justice presentation-wise, but quite tasty, nonetheless.

Deep red-brown. Nose of nice fruity toasted malt. Flavor is more fruity malt (cherry, plum) with a very faint not-quite-roasted finish. Lingering toast and fruit. Lightly sweet. Another winner.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub. Dark reddish-amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, toffee and slight hops. Light to medium body with flavors of biscuit malt, caramel and hops. The finish is sweet malt up front with a mild hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.
