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.

DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2004
Pours dark brown, with a good head and continued lacing. Aroma of malt, toffee, and brown sugar. Tastes very malty, with a slight hop presence. Finished smooth, with a malt, slight caramel finish. Nice beer.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2003
Luscious but somewhat watery, creamy body from which oozes citrus and pine hops...Baby cherries and miscellaneous drowning fruit dwell in stagnant toffee puddles...Patience is a virtue, but I prefer a bit more substance and motion in my everyday moments...

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 5, 2003
Nitro tap at brewery: Pours a thick copper red with a dense tan head. Not much aroma. Flavor is semi-sweet and lightly toasted, but the body is a little thin.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottled. Poured deeper garnet with a tight-bubbled beige head. The aroma picked up nutty and chocolate notes with deeper dark fruit (prune-like).. very assertive with the sweetness.. weird. The flavor found cocoa, molasses, and maple at the core with light earthy notes laced throughout.. tacky malts on the finish. Lighter-bodied and watery at times on the palate.. on the sweet side.. OK overall feel and flow.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Smells of roasted malt, nutty and sweet chocolate. Tastes oakey with some decent coffee flavors and mellow nuts.

Ernest (6141) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2003
Head is initially average, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread), moderately hoppy (orange, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly metallic.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2011
8/11/11. 12oz bottle. Dark brown pour, clear red under light, with a small off-white head that fades fast with no lace. Roasted caramel aroma with a touch of coffee and selzter water. Fairly decent flavor of caramel, roasted malts, some floral aspects, and a touch of coffee, but it seems watered down and a bit over carbonated. Could be worse, I suppose.

DrSilverworm (5898) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2011
12oz bottle, thanks to Robotopera for sharing from his mix-pack. Clear brown-red color, foamy one-finger head. Little lace. Rich aroma, creamier texture, carbonation a bit strong. Moderate spice. Sort of sweet. Decent, moderate-length aftertaste. Not terribly drinkable or sessionable, though. One of the better and more interesting Irish Reds I’ve had, but still not all that great or interesting. I think I’m just not really a fan of the style.
