3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the bottle on St. Patricks Day. Aroma is malty. And maybe like rye. Flavour is also malty. Not as intense, but reminded me of Irish soda bread.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2009 I drank this just over a year ago, so I’m working from memory. I spent a week in Ireland, and had this along with some Mussels in Belfast. As far as beer is concerned, this was the highlight of my trip. I remember it as having a fantastic floral nose. It poured a bright red, with a touch of cloudiness. Had a balance of bold and delicate flavors. I liked it very much; wish we could get some in the states.

Bottle. Dark brown with an off-white head. Aromas are dry biscuit and toffee malts with alcohol and hops spices. Flavours are butty and spicy with toffee and caramel and spicy hops. Quite dry and woody on the finish with nice warming alcohol. A good beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A dark amber beer with a small beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with hints of prunes. The flavor is very spicy, that lasts for a long time in the aftertaste, combined with notes of caramel, leading to a dry end. I don’t like the spice flavors of this on - nothing wrong - it is just not me.

(Bottle 50 cl) Beautiful, clear amber with a small, white head. Incredibly fresh and floral nose. Slightly perfumy with wonderful spicy hops. Surprisingly light body for such a strong beer. Pronounced hoppy finish. 300605

Fine tan head, orangebrown colored body. Roasted and yeast aroma with tones of fruit and yoghourt. Spicy malty flavor with some rather unpleasant herby notes. Dry bitter end. Sharp and unbalanced and not very convincing.
