10/2/10. 12oz bottle. Chocolate and roasty aroma and chocolate flavor as well. Not great, but better than the ipa. jredmond (8770) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle shared with Linh. Pours a copper amber body with thin off white rings of lacing. Aroma is malt and apples. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with notes of spice and malt. Tastes like a pumpkin beer gone wrong. PorterPounder (8313) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, slight off-white head, decent lacing. Sweet caramel and toffee aroma. Flavor has some toffee and caramel notes, a hint of chocolate, some earthiness. full bodied and flavorful. Thick enough mouthfeel. mansquito (6972) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Winter Beer Fest, Philadelphia: Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma is toffee, malts, and some hops.This doesn’t really have all that much hops. feels like a light amber ale. I wouldn’t immediately associate it with an Irish ale, but the characterization makes some sense. I thought it was pretty well-balanced and drinkable. Quite light, but still flavourful. kramer (6908) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2017
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body with a very minimal fizzy beige head that vanished quickly. The aroma is sweet and husky grain with some light dark fruits and a little bit of a burnt note. The flavor is really husky and grainy with some sweet caramel and a thinnish finish. Not a style that ever excites, but this one is especially bland. Lighter bodied with a slight cling and minimal soft carbonation. Meh, not one to seek out.

Draft pint at the Prado brewpub. Very dark red with a head that’s a bit watery. This packs a nice aroma of roasted malt and the first taste follows suit. Sweet and malty, his has a solid caramel character. Bit thin. (#3722, 10/26/2009) Patrickctenchi (6750) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 23, 2012

Bottled, pours a red amber color, didnt think this was nearly as bad as it could have been , malty , red caramel and cocoa notes Suttree (6521) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 14, 2012
It’s red. More of a mahogany, actually. Yeah. Go with Mahogany, although "O’Dempsey’s Big Mahogany Ale" doesn’t roll off the tounge as well. So, it’s very malty, with a lot caramel and molasses. Flavor is caramel and molasses, as well, plus a slight hop bite at the end. . Kind of run the mill, but not bad or anything. Cybercat (6220) - Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2009 Pours a deep, barely translucent reddish sable with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled light tan head. Aroma is strong, spicy and surprisingly hoppy. Flavor is quite hoppy with strong tones of cloves and cinnamon and a hint of honey sweetness. Texture is sassy, fizzy and lively.
