3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a really dark reddish brown with a smallish off white head that quickly dissipate to a ring on top. The aroma holds a heavy dose of caramel and brown sugar with just a hint of chocolate and a touch of earthy hops to provide an illusion of balance. The flavor is fairly sweet with lots of caramel and dark sugars being dominant. Light bits of dark dried fruits and chocolate as well as a bit of earthy hop flavor. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a sweet tart sugary mouthfeel. This is a nice beer, but it feels more like a brown ale than an Irish red to me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 22 oz. bottle. It pour a handsome looking translucent brown with a small, dissolving head and red highlights all around the glass. The aroma is sweet up front with malts and even a slight fruity character akin to cherry. Almost no hop sensation. The body is a little better than medium. The taste is incredibly sweet up front followed quickly by an astringent but low bitterness that does not linger long on the palate. Drinkable for sure.
