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.

Bottle thanks to 5000. Interesting stout, but not really my style. Pours black with off white head. Nose of strong malt balls, milk duds, grain, scotch, cereal and red licorice. Taste is malt balls, malt, milk balls, bready dark fruits, cereal and sweet oatmeal. Almost feels like a dark scottish ale.

hoptimist (99) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 15, 2010
Nice malty scents of roast and bittersweet chocolate. Also a hint of vanilla. Maybe the slightest resin hop scent but malty scents really dominate. Ruby-brown color and clear with a nice somewhat frothy head that except for the thinnest veil dissipates very quickly. Medium sweetness of cocoa, caramel and the aforementioned hint of vanilla. Medium-light resiny bitterness. Medium body with a nice sticky texture. Lively carbonation with a lengthy, balanced and slightly astringent finish.

On tap at TCBF, pours dark reddish brown. Aroma and flavour of caramel malts, sweet fruit and roasted malt. Solid.

I was not expecting this beer to taste as dark as it did. The full heavy taste gave way to it’s chocolately center further pleasuring my taste buds. My favorite attribute of this beer is it’s black appearance

I think I had a bad bottle. My first sip was like sucking on a sharpie. Its growing on me but its definitely not a favorite.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - AUG 18, 2010
Slightly herbal sweet nose...intriguing. Dark and deep brown color, thick tan head. Sweet, malty, and has a pronounced tartness. Medium carbonation, syrupy body (in a good way), warming finish cuts through the heaviness. Interesting beer, not terribly familiar with the style, but this is well-balanced, not cloying, great beer.

Roasted grain aroma. Dark brown in appearance with a decent head. Balanced malt and roasted character and very smooth. Lovely mouth-feel and texture. Overall great beer for just drinking...

Sampled at the richmond beer dig spring 2010. Clear red pour with tan head. Alcohol on the nose; sweet and earthy flavor. Very good. And awesome label art to boot!

Roasty aroma. Dark brown to black appearance but very thin and without any head. This beer is delicious. Malty and roasty and very smooth. Somehow feels thicker on the palate than appears in the glass, not displeasing at all. Overall great beer.
