COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Created by the brewery’s founder, Quilter’s Irish Death is what we call a dark, smooth, ale. Any attempt at classifying it just ends up sending beer geeks into a style guidelines diatribe. So forget style guidelines. Is your pursuit of micro beer about tasting copies of a style that fit guidelines anyways? (Neither is ours) Irish Death is a malt bomb. We lovingly refer to it as beer candy. We heart our candy store. While tempting to session this beer, the name is a necessary reminder that despite the surprising approachability, this beer weighs in at a hefty 7.8% ABV.

Reid (2063) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 6, 2015
22oz bomber bought from "Habits" cig and beer shop in S.Salem OR $4.69 Darker brown with garnet aspects in the light..nice inch sized light tan head. Fine fruity hop aromas mixed with toasted malt..OK Taste mostly toasty malts with a backing of hop..milky finish. Nice smooth medium mouth feel. A nice beer but not a stout in my opinion..maybe a darker Irish Ale

BBB63 (6426) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle: brown hue with minimal head nor lace. Not an Irish Stout, not by a long shot but more akin to a Schwartzbier IMO... sweet stout? I guess that will be okay. (see what is in the description above) Heavy bready and caramelized malts with a fair amount of roast. Almost no bitterness outside some clean noble character. Faint dark fruit esters. Slick and soft mouthfeel... okay for what it is

(Bottle) Nice rich coffee + chocolate flavor in this one. It’s not anything spectacular but it’s a pretty decent stout.

WABeerFiend (321) - - JAN 18, 2015
Poured from a fresh growler into a tumbler on 08.23.14. A: Chocolate malt and earthy like root beer. Sweet smelling. A: 3 finger head. Dark brown nearly opaque body with a see through bottom. T: Licorice, earthy sweetness, and caramel dominate. It has a root-like back end. P: Watery, but carbonated enough. O: This seems more like a Scotch ale, but it’s hard to define. It’s very, very sweet, enough that I can’t drink more than 2 glasses of it before it wears on me.

Duchammer (123) - Eagle river, Alaska, USA - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle: poured mahogany with light to no head with alot of floaters. Aroma a nice creamy chocalte in the nose followed by a little heat from the alcohol. Taste had chocolate light body for a sweet stout and light biscuit followed by alcohol.

Tap, Famous Dave’s, Kalispell, Montana. Dark brown, sweet aroma. Sweet, caramel flavour, some sugar, but just too sweet for me.
