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.

I suppose I can excuse a single infection, though I really should never have to. But when three of the six bottles I buy from a brewery are infected, it really pisses me off and I’m going to voice my displeasure. The cap pops with normal carbonation rush and pours a dark-brown body with half an inch of tan head that fizzes away quickly to a thin ring. The nose is fully sour, smelling like wedges of granny smith apples that were dropped in a pile of dirt. Red apple skins, sour green apple flesh, and dirty dishwater in the entry, though a bit of sweeter, cola-like, dark malt does come out in the finish, hinting at what kind of beer this could have been. Light-medium weight, medium in carbonation, fairly acidic. Obviously this is undrinkable and a huge disappointment, even more so since I love sweet stouts.

Draught. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is toasty with some slight roasting to it. Taste is also somewhat roasty, though I got none of the sweeter elements the style would imply. Very smooth and pleasant drink, though.

This is truly, as labeled, a dark, smooth ale. Pours with nary a head. Flavor is all malt, all the time, with absolutely no bitterness. Sweet, but not overly so. Mouthfeel is not thick, although not thin either. Just a really nice beer all the way around. Wouldn't mind seeing an imperial version of this puppy. A-

Oaky, dark with a strong start, mellow swallow and slightly alcoholic finish. Goes great with heavy snacks.

Slight hop and sweet - dark brown and opaque. Sweet malt, hop was lacking in my opinion. It appears to be bottle conditioned - though thoroughly chilled and gently poured I got tons of yeast floaties. Was expecting more than it delivered.
