Pours deep brown amber with creamy tan head that dissapates quickly, the color became a bit cloudy after we disturbed the sediment from what must be bottle conditioning.
The smell is sweet, full, carmel and hoppy,
Taste is sweet, rich, malty caramel with citrus hoppy backbone; The malt is most predominate.
The bottle says Amarillo hops, a suprise to me as I wouldn't have figured the Irish 'style' to have a bright bold hop like this.
Mouthfeel is full and viscous, smooth and rich; I did not notice any sharp edges or carbonation bite.
Drinkable when available. A bomber might be a perfect single serving size; but I shared mine with a fellow homebrewer.

Three Floyds Brian Boru is an Irish Red Ale with a 5.5% ABV and 40 IBU's~ Pours rich and translucent Copper red, Caramel tints when light up~ Nose is full bodied with Tobacco, Bubble Gum, Grapefruit, Pineapple, Caramel, Chocolate and Toffee~ The feel is Medium, Creamy, Rich and well balanced, delightful~ Tons of tiny Bubbles, Big white head with tons of lacing~ Taste is Strawberry, Caramel, Toffee, Bread, Cream, Toast, Citrus, Honey, Brown Sugar and some Pine and Oat~ Honestly really nothing jumps out... Expect the fact that its extremely well balanced~ I would say a nice even balance of Hops and Malt~ Really just a perfect brew for session drinking~ Such a great take on what is traditionally a rather boring and dull style~ I can't believe I'm tasting 'Strawberry' in a NON sugary processed adjunct ale, Its naturally sweet and delicious~ Overall: 92
