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.

Had it on my golf trip. It was the best I found that wasn't a normal beer on the cart. You're welcome ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Served this ale after volunteering at a mountain bike race. Had no idea what it was. Love at first sip. Kinda buzzed after one can too!

Draft @ RL, GEG. Aroma is sweet malt. Dark brown color with beige head that fades, good lacing. Flavor is sweet malt, a little nut, raisin. Med body with a little carbonic bite. Very good beer! No real style. A little like a Belgian Dubbel. Does not taste it’s strength.

12 ounce can. The beer is a dark brown with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma has sweet nutty notes, caramel, some mild ash notes. The taste is sweet and sugary up front, but as it sits on the tongue, more bread crumb notes develop. Medium body and medium carbonation.

Can. Really dark brown. Not sure what to make of this. ..its kind of homeless. Its like a strong ale meets dry stout. Not sure why its sweet stout.

Can from Downtown Spirits. Dark brown black colour, nice slightly off white foam. Lots of interesting dark malt flavours, but not roasty or bitter, sweet, caramel, treacle, sugar. Lacks bitterness to cut through it. And it tastes kind of hot and boozy. Might be interesting in small doses with dessert but otherwise just a bit cloying.

Bouteille sans date. Robe brune foncée n’offrant que de minces reflets. Mince col de mousse brun-gris assez laiteux et s’estompant rapidement tout en laissant une fine dentelle. Arômes de malt grillé, chocolat noir et d’alcool liquoreux qui me rapelle le Cognac. Pas une vieillissement en barrique mais comme un ajout de copeaux. Également de l’anis, vanille et caramel. En bouche, malt grillé sur fond de chocolat noir fondu, anis encore très présent, vanille. L’aspect liquoreux est plus discret. Léger café au lait, caramel et noisettes. Texture laiteuse et corps moyen un peu déficient. Dommage car avec un peu plus de rondeur, on aurait eu droit à une excellente bière de dessert.

Tap on layover at Seattle airport. Dark with tan head. Coffee and dark fruit smell. Flavor follows. Lightly bitter finish.
