Notes/Commercial Description:
Ireland’s first and last Ard Ri (high king) of the whole Gaelic race, Brian Boru was born in Munster, Ireland around 940. Brian Boru’s mother was killed by Vikings when he was a child. He spent his life uniting the Irish tribes to become the first king of Ireland only to be killed at Clontarf on Good Friday 1014 putting down a rebellion by the king of the province of Leinster. This one’s for him.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: A dark reddish orange with a tan fluffy head.

S: Caramel and toffee dominate the first sniff. A little pine and earthy hop with some citrus at the edges. A little roast and smoke. Malt dominated for sure.

T: Caramel and burnt, roasted orange. Dry earthy hops with a big citrus kick. Grapefruit and dark fruit finish this out. Burnt bread is at the heart of this beer.

M: light, smooth, silky.

O Sessionable for sure! delicious with a good mix of earth and juicy fruit with a strong malt presence. smells completely different than how it tastes. /89
