Med brown color. Sweet lactose nose. The mouth is very malty, but too cloying and rich. Too sweet not much depth. Not horrible but wouldn’t reorder.

On tap at the brewery.
Hazy brown ale with a slight caramel hue. Done sweet Esters or banana and clove. Smells of smooth milk chocolate and hints of molasses malts. Nice brown ale flavor is then upended with some sweet what I think are off flavors in the beer, but this is the flagship beer so must be their intention.medium body and low carb and semi dry finish.I don’t really care for this one.
Serving type: on-tap

Irish Death is a very dark Ale. It is nearly the color of black coffee with a warm brown edge and a thick tan head. It tasted slightly of toast, coffee, and chocolate. It was quite bitter when completely chilled but smoothed out as it warmed up.
It was definitely heavier than I expect an ale to be. It was the type of beer that for me is a meal in itself, I would never do more than snack with it.

Sweet stout is right. Chewy and creamy palate. Milk Chocolate with burnt malt. Hop in the finish. Slight bourbon barrel flavor in there as well, which I am yet to care for in my brews.

Nice looking beer. Had it on tap at a new restaurant in the area, Hop Jacks. Decent head, left phenomenal lace. The aroma was average and the taste was far from complex. Definitely more on the sweet side and very low bitterness. Good mouthfeel but not much of an aftertaste. Overall not a bad stout, won’t be my go-to stout but I could "session" these on occasion.

Such a smooth stout. From the first drop, all night long. This beer is incredible. I usually only drink dark beers inn the winter but I love this any time of any day.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is full of toffee, peat and dark fruit. The flavor is similar. I get a lot of toffee and peat malt, with some cherries and a light amount of alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

8/21/2011: Iron Horse Quilter’s Irish Dath [Dark, Smooth Ale.]... Aroma: Cola and molasses with undertones of spice and licorice. Appearance: Murky dark brown color, dirty opaqueness; small, dense beige- to tan-colored head that settles out quickly. Flavor: Mild licorice with deep herbal notes; somehow reminds me of chocolate and pumpkin; nice medicinal quality; sasafrass, molasses fruitiness; good alochol in the finish. Palate: Meidum body; smooth, just slightly chewy. Overall: Oddly different and quite tasty!
1 pint 6 fl. oz. bottle (Alc. 7.8% by Vol.). Rating #151 for this beer.
