look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured a wonderfully deep burnt copper with good head and good lacing. Very nice scents, a nice mixture of malts with hints of sugar and caramel and a slight earthiness. Great tastes, with that great Irish red tang, a nice deep maltiness, hints of toffee, caramel, and chocolate, and a wonderful earthy finish. Went down very smoothly, an excellently done Irish red.
