My first experience with Irish death was from a bottle and it had something missing. Almost watery in the middle. The tap on the other hand is outstanding and has become one of my favorites

Bottled, TNX Chris ! Dark brown colour, small tan head. Coffee and licorice nose. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, licorice. Flavour is coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, mild liquorice. Could use some more body for the alcohol level. Nicely balanced beer though.

A creamy, chocolatey taste without trying. Great from the bottle, but in a mug you get the delicious foam. Note that it is strong, after drinking this regularly now Guinness tastes like water.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours medium brown with small beige head. Malty aroma. Sweet malty taste with slight acidity. Thin palate. Finish continued malts and some acidity.
I liked it better than the score would indicate, it’s really pretty decent.

bottle. lighter bodied deeper amber brown pour. sweet maltiness that made this beer seem more like a American Strong Ale rather than a stout. touch of sherry, malty backbone. medium bitterness. perhaps too aged

Smooth balanced and deceptively strong. A stout, a porter sorta of hard to nail down. Definitely delicious.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting.
Body is dark brown to black.
Aroma is moderately malty (milk chocolate, caramel), with notes of vanilla, minerals/chalk.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, creamy/velvety texture, soft/lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic.
Pleasant, milk chocolatey nose with a British mineral character...an Imperial dry stout, well, sorta but it’s pretty sweet in the mouth. Very silky mouthfeel is nice. Overall pretty decent.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep black coffee brown, I had a very short lived, reluctant dark cream colored bubbly head. Aroma is toast and cherries, dried plums, raisin and molasses. Flavor is sweet, cherry, raisin, hint of cola, dark malt. Finish is balanced and smooth, not dry, not sour. Palate is good for a "regular" stout, thicker than a black IPA, this really feels more stout like to me, or at least porter. Carbonation is good too. Really liking this one!

Robert brought this one back from a trip to Portland. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer gushed a black color with an enormous beige head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was cherry, raisin, malt and a bit of licorice. The flavor was cherry, plum, raisin, molasses and licorice. Medium length cherry and raisin finish. Medium body though overcarbonated. Interesting.
