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.

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.

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.

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.

Medium brown color. Small to medium head. Aroma is fruity, malty and rather sweet. A medium bodied Irish Red Ale. Malts are fruity and sweet and somewhat roasty. Hops are spicy and floral. Nice roasty malt flavors. Touch of orange and spice here as well, must be the yeasts. Well balanced. Smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
