Poured from a freshness dated 12 oz. can: very dark hue like a coca-cola with ruby highlights. The quickly receding white head left no lacing.

Aromatics include caramel and faint hops.

Now, this is quite a strong and full-bodied Irish ale compared to the few I have sampled in the past. An almost chewy mouthfeel is followed by flavors of molasses, caramel and faint, roasted coffee. If memory serves me, the Irish ales I tried were somewhat one dimensional and light, albeit quite enjoyable. According to the brewery's website, this ale is 5.5 percent ABV, not 4.5 as presented on beer advocate.

This was a pleasant surprise.
