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.

AlainG (2144) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 1, 2015
Ambre la mousse gnreuse. Un nez des plus simples et communs; du malt et du caramel, mais temprature ambiante, des effluves boises se manifestent. Le got, quoique semblable aux armes est transport par une texture soyeuse o des bulles, lentes, sy prlassent et laissent place des saveurs herbaces. Cest meilleur au fil des gorges et cen est mme surprenant. Cest cher par contre. (Lot 4092 Emb. 15.02.09) (1440-130515)

A nicely sweet red, with cherries on the palate and mildly invading the colouring. If youve ever had Lake of Bays Gerry Cheevers Stitches, this one is in the same genetic family. If you enjoyed that one, definitely try this one.

Bouteille 60cl, batch# 4092, bottled 02/05/2015 courtesy of Asheft, IP trade in Brussels, thanks Alex. De couleur acajou, voire ambre, col fin blanc-cass. Arme aux savoureuses notes maltes tirant vers un agrable chocolat, cara ple et un accompagnement fruit agrumes du houblon. Palais met laccent sur un malt aux notes chocolates et caramel qui ressortent bien. Retrouve une lgre amertume citronne des houblon avec un rappel UK noble (oscillant vers le caractre du Challenger) et une touche de baies sur la fin. Le bois se retrouve assez en retrait par rapport aux diffrents malts. Le profil reste sec et se ponctue sur une fin qui garde une belle prsence des grains-malts.
