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.

Pours drak cloudy brown with a reddish tint and a head like overboiled oatmeal. Aroma of dark malts and overripe dark fruit. Dark cherry flavor and molasses. Kind a of a one note flavor and not one I particularly like in a beer. The beer is smooth. Other than the carbonation this beer is pretty silky in the mouth. Honestly, not one of my favorite beers. A bit too sweet and there isn’t anything to really cut the cherry flavor.

shared bomber. something between a stout and a strong ale. kinda like Old Vis, but not as good. Smooth maltiness, raisiny sweetness, roasted malts. and a decent bitter hop profile. Nice enough if nothing special.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Great Looking beer. This is a dark ale that is still tasty on a hot summer day just as much as a cold winter night. I enjoyed this beer and the deScription is right, you cant categorize this ale.

A subdued malt aroma with a hint of chocolate. A great looking beer, pours a rich dark brown color with a creamy tan head. A sweet chocolate malt taste with a full bodied creamy feel and a sweet milk chocolate finish.

16 oz can at Safeco courtesy of running into an old friend. Small world it is, and I’m surprised more and more each day. Copper brown color. Sweet malt heavy aroma. Flavor is very sweet, overly rich caramel malt, and some chocolate. Malt bomb is an understatement. It’s always fun to have a beer that I’ve seen around for several years, but never gave it a full try. Harsh sweetness, and less my type of stout, but good qualities.

Not a big fan of this beer. Not overly sweet, but its sweetness remains unbalanced. Light brownish appearance. Tried on the Ferry back to Seattle in 2016.

Although not a strong palate, you are able to taste ingredients throughout. It is on the more complex side.
