Pours a dark brownish red color with an off-white head with solid retention and lacing. The aroma is sweet malt, plums, raisins, and dark bread. The taste is very sweet up front with a good dose of malts and slightly toasted grain and a lingering sweetness well into the finish. Overall, not a huge fan of this one. The sweetness is overpowering for my taste buds, would have prefered a drier finish to this one.

The color is a rich barley brown with a tinge of auburn and a thick but fleeting head.

The nose is quite inviting for fans of malt with a subtle burnt grain. This has touches of nut, barley, roasted grains and kilned malts.

The flavor is a tad sweet with a nutty, caramel and toffee. It actually reminds me of Fiddle Faddle, a toffee coated popcorn with peanuts. As it warms it begins to lose flavor but it has a decent roasted grain and barley taste.

Im sure it's vogue to pan this beer but I found it to be rather flavorful and a decent "Macro" brewed Irish Red.

poured from 12 oz bottle into a snifter, pours typical of an irish red. Little to no head and minute lacing after ten minutes. The aroma is pretty disatisfying consisting of mainly malt and smokiness, though some sugary/buttery aromas come through as it warms. The taste wasn't much better with first mouth feel tasting mainly of malt, with an after taste of crisp bread. Mouth feel was very light, but perfect amount of carbonation. Nothing I'd recommend overall.
