COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong (6.5% abv) interpretation of an Irish Red Ale. Part of the batch has been aged in wheat whiskey barrels, and then reintroduced adding subtle wood and vanilla nuances.
History & Style
Strong Patrick is based on an Irish Red, an ale style that is lightly hopped, well rounded and balanced, with a pleasant toasted malt character. A celebration of the traditional style just in time for St. Patricks Day!
Tasting Notes
This is a luscious, red-hued ale with a malty backbone, showcasing toasty and toffee notes complemented by some warming alcohol & whiskey flavours. These combine with underlying wood & vanilla nuances added through contact with oak.
Food Pairings
Brewmaster Matthew OHara suggests pairing with creme brulee, and of course some traditional soda bread and Irish stew.

reebtogi (6149) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 21, 2017
600ml bottle pours amber in color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy with caramel and hints of vanilla and whiskey. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness with some notes of vanilla and mild whiskey. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent brew that suits the style well. Recommended.

AleRider78 (974) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2017
Pours a relatively average size frothy head and has a cloudy amber/coppery appearance with red hues. Aromas of light roasted malts, toasty and earthy. Also notes of breads and mild grains. Malty flavours with some notes of vanilla, caramel and toffee. Being aged in a whisky barrel is fairly evident with the mild whisky flavour in the back. Hops are pretty well in the background as well. Sweet bitterness on the palate. Medium bodied with an astringent, warming mouthfeel. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Average carbonation. Pretty good stuff.

Bottle, LCBO. Dark reddish amber with persistent creamy white head. Toasty and caramelly sweet malty character with herbal bitterness. Great drinkability with the nice stimulating bitter tingle in the finish.

Eructoblaster (4103) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2017
Bottle - 600ml. Beautiful dark copper body with average carbonation and a thick, off-white frothy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with caramel and some subtle woody hints. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries caramel, woody, and nutty notes. Ends with a good bittersweet finish. Good example of Irish Red.

Bire rouge assez fonce tirant vers le brun-orange, bien limpide, bonne effervescence, et surmonte dun col couleur crme pas tellement large, mais bien dense et mousseux, collant et persistant. Armes de pain grill et de sucre dorge, avec de la rglisse rouge, et petits fruits rouges (cerise, fraise). Davantage en arrire-plan, on note des effluves boiss et de vanille, avec un certain houblon herbac et vgtal (branchage, feuillage). Enfin, on peut dceler par moment des odeurs de caramel, de noisette, de grain rti, de poivre et dalcool. Nez bien intressant, belle complexit, bonne intensit. En bouche, ptillement plutt faible sur la langue, mais onctuosit bien leve au palais, cest rond, moelleux, soyeux et velout. Au got, entre malte de pain grill et sucre dorge, avec une bonne dose de rglisse rouge et de fruits rouges, et quelques notes de caramel, de noisette, et mme de chocolat brun par moment. Une bonne saveur boise accompagne ce malt avant de dominer une finale au cours de laquelle se pointe galement un lger got alcoolis (whiskey?) ainsi quun bon sucre rsiduel. Bire principalement sucre, amertume lgre en fin de bouche, houblon trs peu goteux et probablement principalement vgtal (branchage). Par moment, il me semble dceler de subtiles saveurs de fume, de tourbe et de vanille, provenant vraisemblablement du vieillissement partiel en ft de whiskey. Bire particulirement sucre, mais personnellement jaime beaucoup a, excellente intgration des diffrentes saveurs entre elles, complexit trs leve et bonne intensit. Trs bonne bire!

Rousse cuivre, effervescence quasi constante. Au nez, malt, caramel et vague sentiment de bois grill. En bouche, bel quilibre, belle excution, mais rien dimpressionnant non plus. Bien bon, rafrachissant, mais sans plus.
