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.

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.

Thick and consistent head with light caramel color. Strong chocolate aroma. Dark reddish brown color that has some clarity. Smooth texture with a late bite. Chocolate and coffee flavor notes. Grassy aftertaste that dissipates quickly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle. Blacl beer. Malt aroma. Flavor is malt, milk sugar, and a little red wine. Good palate, but maybe too sweet.

Draft in Port Angeles WA. 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 soft carbonation. Easy drinking but not so memorable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (4989) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 9, 2017
On tap in Boise Idaho. Essentially black but clear body with an excellent tan head and sticky lacing. Aroma: higher ABV evident along with dark roasted grains. Flavor follows the aroma, with some booze, dark bread and spicy hops. Overall: too boozy and hot.

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.
