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.

This delivers. Dark brown with an off white head. The nose shows layers of malt and cola. The palate is full bodied, rich and creamy. Sweet malts and a hint of toffee. Balanced finish with almonds and the perfect amount of balanced bitterness.

22oz bottle. Rating #120. Murky dark brown pour with a beige head. Big toasted aroma and a little nutty as well. Sweet toasty flavor, ripe fruits, mild bitterness. Pretty tasty stuff. (2207)

Bomber. Honestly, the label and name caught my attention. However, the description doesn’t lie; this is an original taste for a stout. The scent was a peculiar cola, the appearance a typical dark chocolate. The palate was a sticky syrup with a thick body and fizzy finish. The taste was oddly sweet at first then nutty notes mixed with cream and to finish a toasty roasty aftertaste. A winner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy by stoneagerad

Bready aroma. Nice black color with chocolaty brown color when held up to the light very little head. Very sweet milk chocolate taste. Very smooth on the palate, but leaves milky feeling . Overall a very good beer.

This is an amazing dark ale with what I perceived to be many stout characteristics. The aroma is rich, and the flavor is simply out of this world. This is easily one of the top 5 "most impressed by" beers I’ve ever had. The mouthfeel is rich and smooth and finish is awesome. It’s hard to find but so worth it when you do!

Deep brown-black. Head took some coaxing. Body is lightly carbonated, soft and thickish on the tongue. Burst of sweetness right off the bat. Soda, caramel and milk chocolate is mostly what I get. Lactic sweetness lingers. Very mild hop bitterness. Some soft roast, but not nearly enough, IMO. Regardless of the style, this beer was just way too sweet / unbalanced for me.

Pours black with minimal head. Smells sweet like caramel. Taste is a bit like watery vanilla/caramel. It’s more sour and bitter than expected. Smokey finish. It’s decent and drinkable.

The first whiff of this beer actually reminded me of Flinstone’s vitamins. Then the first taste reminded me of chocolate and malt. After it warmed up the fruity taste matched the smell. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650ml bottle pours a hazy dark brown color with a small light beige head and very thin spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild but pleasing sweet malts. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with some graininess and a hint of chocolate with a mild earthy hop bitterness. Medium to heavy body with light carbonation. Not quite a stout, more of a strong brown ale, but quite an enjoyable brew.

bigtaster (1037) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Dark, malty nose. There is a good amount of drinkability, lots of sweetness, darker malts. First thing I said after tasting is weird, and still think this beer is a little off.
