I like this beer its a good beer for those who have never tried a darker beer. It is sweet but for those of us who aren’t in love with the crazy bitterness found in IPA’s i don’t think it will be a problem. Obviously, my fellow raters are no strangers to the dark side, and have forgotten what its like to just be starting out. SirLancelot (1) - - FEB 1, 2012 does not count
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! pineapplemice (1) - - AUG 5, 2014 does not count
A creamy, chocolatey taste without trying. Great from the bottle, but in a mug you get the delicious foam. Note that it is strong, after drinking this regularly now Guinness tastes like water. MrWomey (39) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Apparently this is the perfect beer. Received a pint while vacationing in the Orcas Islands at a place just called The Pub. The other dark choices were thestandard Guinness and Old Rasputin but then the Bev Babe pointed me at Irish Death for a taste. I immediately fell in love with her and the beer’s color, taste, and its ability to have such a covert ABV. Goes down smooth and sweet but has much more in hops than you think. Great diversionary brew. Thanks Irish Quilters.

Dark and delicious. Tasted it at a beer tasting event in Seattle. Very rich and smooth. Cwrw42 (51) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 18, 2012
The more I drink this the more I like it. As the brewer says it defies style guidelines but it works, it really works. First taste was reminiscent of a mild or sweet porter, but then the complexity hits you. Sweet, malty with roasty overtones and just enough hops to keep it balanced.
Blows the 4 pint test out of the water give me 6!

Sweet and malty, with a slight bourbon-y taste. This is definitely jumping onto my "favorites" shortlist! targhee (30) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2011
I love this beer. Dark as a dunkel with a hop kick. Very refreshing. If you like New Belgium’s 1554 and want to step it up a notch, this is a great way to go. Agree with the "limit one", as the octane will sneak up on you.
