946ml growler. Deep reddish brown with a foamy beige head. Flavors are roasted/toasted cereals, charred wood, smoke, toffee and nuts with herbal and fruity notes. Medium body, soft carbonation, smooth texture. Balanced layers of malty aspects, supported by a delicate herbal bitterness, all delivered on a silky mouthfeel. This is delicious.

How: Growler (946 ml) at home. Thanks to hoppypocket for this one! Split 2-ways.

>>> A superior Irish Ale with a great malt depth for the style and pretty good drinkability.

+ Solid work with the malts give this beer a deep caramel and toffee presence
+ A really good balance between all flavors as well as a moderate bitterness makes this one very easy to drink and to enjoy
+ The moderate carbonation and the chewy malts combine for a mellow and fluffy mouthfeel that suits this beer really well

Flavors: Caramel, toffee, roasted malt, vegetal presence, pecan nuts, mild spiciness.

Franckg (523) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2015
En fût à TDD, juillet 2014. Manque de goût. Les levures anglaises sont bien présentent mais je cherche encore le côté "red" de cette bière. Plus terreuse que caramélisée, assez herbacée. J’avais de bons souvenirs de dégustations antérieures donc je vais sans aucun doute réessayer.

fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2015
Draught at Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar (W. Broadway), Vancouver; 10oz
Dark amber color with small head. Dark caramel, and earthy character; rather dry. A very typical Red Ale, which isn’t saying much, and this beer is not better than the bunch. Clean and flawless, though.

Ferris (7970) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
Draft - Grains and caramel. Clear dark copper with a decent white head. Caramel, tea leaves and light hops. Decent, but nothing special.

mcberko (9568) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2015
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a dark red with a small beige head. Nose brings out dry bready malt - not much else. Flavour is along the same lines, with a bone dry bready malt character dominating. Very well-brewed for a typically boring style. Good stuff.

(tap at Cask Days 2014) hazy amber colour with a small tan head; aroma of caramel; dry flavour with long light bitter finish

Luk_ (238) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2014
On tap at TDD. Very dark Brown with red highlights. Aroma is burnt caramel, coffee and red fruits. Taste is roasted grain bitterness with sweet candied fruits. Rich mouthfeel. Very well done for this unappreciated style.

Caramel. Roasted malt, nutty, bitter caramel finish. Very elegant and flavorful red ale.

czar (5839) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 27, 2014
on tap at bateau de nuit, qc. clear dark red pour with a nice and reviving off-white head, some retention and lacing. toasted and spicy maltiness - almost rye-like, but also light enjoyable caramel, red fruitiness - hint of acidity, pepper, touch of smoke and coffee, fairly herbal and grassy. moderate carbonation, light body - a tad watery, dry herbal-peppery-grassy finish. more than decent.
