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. Patrick’s 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 O’Hara suggests pairing with creme brulee, and of course some traditional soda bread and Irish stew.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy red-amber color with almost no head. Bread, malt and caramel dominate this beer; the body is robust and there is some residual sweetness; the wheat whiskey seems to provide a note out of tune that leads into a strange but mild astringency. It has some pleasant fruity esters.
Weird but not bad.

mcberko (18065) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2017
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a crazy dark reddish amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out toasted caramel, bready malt and a little toffee. Flavour is rather robust for the style, with bready malt, toasted caramel, and lightly sweet toffee. Bold for the style and well-constructed all around. Very good.

Oakes (17815) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2017
Hazy amber-brown. Toasty, with a ready character. Has a caramel, slightly toasty character. OK, so not much complexity.

jtclockwork (16685) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2017
Bottle - Pours dark amber white head - nose and taste of caramel, sticky toffee and tree sap - medium body

djd07 (15075) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2016
Bottle at Hunah Day. Pours a clear copper with thick beige head that lasts. The aroma is caramel, spice, toasted malt. Medium body, similar flavors to nose, light finish, good.

Lubiere (13954) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2017
A reddish copper ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, nice caramel malt with light butterscotch notes, light grassy hops, light mineral notes, light treacle, nice. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity caramel malt with loads of butterscotch, light mineral notes, light treacle, pleasant. On tap at brewery.

jercraigs (10556) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2012
2012-03-29. Nice brown body, headless. Tangy malt aroma, light caramel. 6+ Flavour is similar, mild malt, light tangy notes, notes of barrel are mild enough that it took more than one sip to identify them. Average bodied palate. My final note says "Boozy quality is (illegible) but not necessarily enticing." Okay. I’d drink it again but probably wouldn’t choose it very often. Beaulo Event, Volo, Toronto

DuffMan (10451) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy and Ian. Deep reddish hue, average off white head. Very malty and sweet, dark toffee, a little buttery, brown sugar. Sweet, simple, but decent.
