The Rooney family is no stranger to the beer and pub business. Their roots go back to the turn of the 20th century when Dan Rooney opened the family’s first pub on the corner of Corey and General Robinson Streets where Three Rivers Stadium later stood in Pittsburgh,PA. In 1933, the family entered the brewing business in Braddock, PA. Today the family celebrates both its Celtic and Pittsburgh Pride with the next generation of brews starting with Rooney’s Old Irish Style Ale

On tap at The Brass Tap poured a clear reddish amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of tobacco, earthiness and light caramel. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of tobacco, earthiness and light toffee with a smooth dry lingering tobacco finish.

Draft... Clear dark-copper ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aromatic standouts are toasted malts, dates and a pleasant nuttiness. Medium to full-bodied and creamy with prickly carbonation. The flavor presents notes of toasted malt and caramel up front; maple and medium bitterness on the backside. Lengthy, minerally, fairly bitter finish. Go Steelers!

6 pack from Giant Eagle. Pours a deep mahogany hue with a small white head. The aroma is light caramel and toasted malts. The flavor is a sweet mix of chocolates and caramel, some dryness. Pretty clean. Almost porter-like at times.

PorterPounder (7417) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Pours a medium copper, slightly sparkling, very slight off-white head. Aroma has some very slight meaty undertones, a touch of cinnamon. Flavor has some peaty qualities, a touch of toffee, some nuttiness, a hint of chewing tobacco. Very flavorful for an Irish Ale. Smooth mouthfeel. Much better than expected.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6842) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2012
I had fairly low expectations for this one but it ended up being fairly pleasant. +++ Sampled on draft at D’s in Monroeville this beer poured a dark caramel-brown color with a medium sized foamy beige head that left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish and malty with light fruity hops and a bit of bread. The flavor was semi sweet bread, caramel, nut and wood with undertones of faint vague tangy fruity hops. Surprisingly complex. The finish was long with notes of wood, bread and nut. Medium body. Exceeded expectations.

This poured a medium red color with a beige head. Aroma was grassy, caramel, and light metallic notes. Flavor was nutty and caramel maltiness, with very light old grassy hops. Better than expected.

cheap (5363) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2012
OK, so Rocky Blie couldn’t have his own beer but the rooneys can, go figure. Smooth mild easy going for the most part. Pour is quite dark, enough to be considered a dark beer. Pretty good fun for a lager lover, quite beery but not over the top in any way. Aroma hints like the friendly sweat of a girlfriend. Finish is mild malt or possibly lagerized dull industrial hops. Overall good beer experience.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Dry, toasty aroma with some nuts. Clean label, standard US longneck, keystone cap. Clear, dark brown beer, thin lacy head. Flavor mirrors the aroma -- dry, toasty/roasty, lightly acidic, pleasant bittering. Session weight, long roasty aftertaste gets a little clingy. A little sweetness and raisin as it warms. Not bad. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

The aroma is malty with grains, grassy hops, and brown sugar. The appearance is amber with a large head. The taste is like the aroma with a bitter finish. The plate is typical. Overall pretty average.
