3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(22oz bomber thanks to blutt59) clear ruby, creamy tan head. Nose of rich coffee with cream, fresh beans, chocolate malt. Taste of rich coffee that’s slightly watery, chocolate malt, cream, pretty nice beer. Creamy finish of cream and rich coffee.

2.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Disappointed with this one. No head even when poured straight down the glass and expected it to be a thicker more substantial beer. Was watery and acidic tasting.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear dark brown with a thin beige head. Coffee and chocolate aroma... no surprises here. Coffee, chocolate and caramel taste in a somewhat watery body. I haven’t been a huge fan of the Iron Horse stouts and this one isn’t going to change much.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks like watery coffee and no head. Aroma is mostly coffee and chocolate. Upfront, the flavor is sweet, definitely mocha. A little bit of a bitter finish and some alcohol. Overall, pretty good but a little watery.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Murky dirty dark brown, moderate/large rocky beige head, fairly nice lacing.   Strong coffee
bean aroma.   Much like like coffee, but moreso the bits that gets tossed out when one makes coffee.   Very
coffeeish on the tongue.   Minor sweet lactose like malts.   No real chocolate, smidgen of cocoa.
Smooth, albeit not that hefty.   Has a slight Gooseberry skin like flavor.   Rather weird, but its there.
Not a hefty stout.   Somewhat of a sweet stout, mated with a huge amount of coffee beans.   Body and
mouthfeel are faily moderate.   Long lingering coffee flavors, smidgen of cocoa and lactose like sweetness.
Not very Mocha like, but I could certainly go with Coffee Death. &bnsp If you like coffee, this one is for you!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle from curly- thanks again, Jason! Pours a clear, deep brown-amber with a small beige head. Aroma of gritty coffee grounds, dark chocolate, earth, toast, and burnt sugar. Flavor is off- some dark fruits and sweetener along with roast, toast, nuts, and earth. Medium body with low carbonation and a sweet, Roasty mouthfeel. Off but not bad.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a super hazy dark brown with a very fair beige head. Very very hazy, looks almost like very dark muddy water; this is not a pretty beer. Aroma is up front and very strong on the coffee with little to no trace of cocoa powder. Having had the original Irish Death on multiple occasions I feel that this version has gone a bit too far astray. Although the strong coffee ground aroma is nice, it dominates. You definitely taste the coffee up front as well, however it comes across as being back-sweetened with an unnatural and overly sweet finish. Think of Sweet & Low type of sweetness and you’ll see what I mean. Also the finish has a strong alkali chalkiness, most likely from the usage of cocoa powder. This is an unbalanced beer with a barely tolerable sweetness. Reminds me of an alcoholic version of diner coffee with five packets of artificial sugar. WIsh I had better things to say because I love the original so much but this version misses the mark with it’s over the top sweetness and lack of chocolate qualities.
