Nowhere to get except a small Vienna pub...probably my favorite Irish ale. Dark amber, nice and smooth, caramel taste, full body, creamy and mellow.

One of the best red beers I’ve ever had. Gorgeous color, creamy, and just sweet enough. Not overly filling, making it an easy beer to drink too many of. I wish we could still get it here in Louisiana. They ship us the stout, but not this.

Just another great beer from Ireland together with its mate, Stout. The taste is impressive.

Coffee and Chocolate Accents . Smokey flavor. Tart but not too bitter. Beautiful foamy head. Very dark beer. Not as dark as guiness(or bitter) and the head is better. This beer would also be cool to make into a mousse or pudding.

Most ales have similar ingrediants, but this one had a very different flavor that I don’t find in other ales.

My personal choice for an Irish beer. Similar to Killians, but better yet, since it is ofcourse actually made in the Emerald Isle. I had it at Greek bar though, which was okay, but I would prefer drinking it at an Irish Pub to enhance the atmosphere.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2008 Cremmy and sweet this is a great brew. It is a more authentic version of Kilians and quite tasty. Had it in a pub on tap and like it very much. Not overwellmed but it’s darn good.
