Red Irish rising, sweet loam of the moor, Slowly, so slowly we watch the art of the pour. Born of the gas whose molecules dance. Born of the flow of a dense liquid trance Feeding the head, feeding the heart Humble Patience is the place we start How long is the ride? How traveled the road? What do we bring to lighten the load? Humble Patience is the thing The ripe revelation that waiting will bring, Humble Patience... How long does it take for soon to be now? OUR IRISH-STYLE ALE POURS SLOWLY, ITS DARK GARNET-RED COLOR CASCADING INTO A RICH, THICK, CREAMY HEAD THAT WILL MAKE YOU WEEP WITH JOY.

Bottled. Reddish black, average head. Roasty, peaty aroma. Salty and woody with some chocolate and verlvetty, yet clean mouthfeel. Dry, woody finish with medium bitterness. Well balanced.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle at Sander’s place, NYC. Pours clear russet with a soft, creamy, off-white head. Pretty classic Irish Ale aroma: caramel, toasty malts, leaves. Light sweet flavor, wet leaves, dull caramel, toast, mild bitterness. Light bodied with fine, tingly carbonation. Faintly dry and sweet to finish, leafy bitterness, slight semi-dark fruits, toasty malts. Very basic beer but not offensive in any way, really.

rlgk (18199) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2004
Dark amber. Great malty aroma with vanilla toffee and milk chocolate. Flavor brings malt as well, with milk chcolate. But I miss the hops, it would have made the beer more complex.

argo0 (13235) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 9, 2002
Clear dark copper body with a medium off-white head. Grassy and slightly caramel aroma. Flavor is grassy bitterness tempered by toastiness and sweet caramel. Fairly clean aftertaste that ends quite bitterly grassy. Impressive for an Irish Red.

Lubiere (12878) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2005
Dark reddish brown ale with a smooth creamy pale moka head, verry nice. Sweet vanilla and Coffee crisp in aroma, with pellets of malt. In mouth, a nice roasted chestnut comes out with very discreet hops. Verry woody and nutty in character, a good Irish Red! Medium bodied. Too bad its retired!

red-brown colour, fine head, hazelnut aroma, some sourness followed by a long, deep chocolate and spicy finish - rich and quite subtile

Drake (11781) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2011
12 ounce bottle from the fall mix pack. Pours a clear dark red with a large frothy tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of earthy notes, nuts, chocolate and tinny hops. The taste is earthy notes, caramel and a leafy hop finish. Medium bodied. Decent beer.

Sammy (11176) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2005
Poured huge initial head..dark redish wood. Fragrant spicey aroma. Chocalate and other malts, not too sweet, appropriately carbonated. Bit of roasted grounds, chewy, easy drink..like a draft. Bittersweet finish and aftertaste. L

This beer rocks. Although the brewer classifies this as an Irish Red Ale, I believe that it is one of the very best(and very malty)brown ales out there. If it looks like a nut brown, tastes like a nut brown and smells like a nut brown...it’s a freakin’ nut brown. Go buy a case if you can still find one. I hear they might be more or less replacing this beer with their Humble Patience. A shame.
