Got a bottle from Capone's in PA...no where else sells Three Floyd's in our area. Pricey purchase, but I was curious.
Pours with a pleasant head. Dark, orange copper color. The tiny carbonation bubbles circulate around the interior of the glass.
A rich, heavy, sweet, malty scent. Almost a syrupy aroma. First taste, smooth. Not as potent in terms of alcohol taste as I would have expected based on the smell. BIG malty flavor, which comes in waves. Fills the tastebuds. The essence of a burgundy and a barleyine.
Good, quality stuff. As mentioned, lots of underlying flavors present.

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
