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.

Draft at O’Dunkens in Twin Falls. Black pour, definite strong ale taste with stout twist. Heavy malt taste, very little hops or bitterness. Chocolate, coffee, etc. Not great, not bad. Better fall or winter drink.

Bomber shared by Ed. Poured a solid black body with a foamy beige head. Aroma is decently chocolatey, cardboard and brown box. Flavor is the same. Medium body with average to stronger carbonation. Nice beer for an Irish Stout.

22oz bomber from HBT trade. Pours dark brown/almost black color with a small foamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate malts, caramel, light vanilla, and light roasted sour malts. Taste mimics the nose with some earthiness.

I really dig this beer. Its dark but not heavy, perfect amount of foam. High alcohol content, great name. I’m into it. Bought in Vancouver with my dad.

cmacklin (814) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 6, 2016
On tap. Pours a clear red-brown with a medium, creamy, long lasting, tan head that laces. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, caramel, dark chocolate, dried fruit and vanilla. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, caramel, dark chocolate, dried fruit, licorice and vanilla with a dry, light boozy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Tasty.

natejgood (476) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Pours drak cloudy brown with a reddish tint and a head like overboiled oatmeal. Aroma of dark malts and overripe dark fruit. Dark cherry flavor and molasses. Kind a of a one note flavor and not one I particularly like in a beer. The beer is smooth. Other than the carbonation this beer is pretty silky in the mouth. Honestly, not one of my favorite beers. A bit too sweet and there isn’t anything to really cut the cherry flavor.

slowrunner77 (9945) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 22, 2016
shared bomber. something between a stout and a strong ale. kinda like Old Vis, but not as good. Smooth maltiness, raisiny sweetness, roasted malts. and a decent bitter hop profile. Nice enough if nothing special.

Great Looking beer. This is a dark ale that is still tasty on a hot summer day just as much as a cold winter night. I enjoyed this beer and the deScription is right, you cant categorize this ale.
