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.

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...

muteprint (176) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 17, 2010
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.

6/26/10. Sampled at the Tally Tasting 2010 courtesy degarth, I believe. Sweet and malty. Can’t say there’s much going on, but not bad!

PorterPounder (6711) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Tallahassee Tasting at Proof/Liquor Loft - 22 oz bomber. Dark brown pour - off-white head. Earthy aroma. Flavor is somewhat bland and a bit odd. Pick up some grassy notes and a lot of "earthiness". Mouthfeel is decently thick.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Pours solid black with a thick foamy light brown head that lasts a while. Aroma of tart fruit, caramel, milk, some floral hops. Taste has more citrus than expected, lots of caramel malt, some sour, overall kind of a weird flavor. Medium body, lively carbonation.

humulushound (244) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2010
Deep chestnut color with two fingers of tan head. Aroma is rich caramel malt, coco nibs, hints of licorice and nut skins. Taste is sweet and refreshing with mild bitterness and hidden alcoholic potency. Finish is malty with delicate viscosity. This is a very nice sweet stout, tasty and not so bitter as to preclude quick consumption.
