COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Irish Dark is a dark horse indeed. Light in body but strong in alcohol, its got a kick like a mule. Yet Irish Dark positively strokes the palate as it goes down, with its mild, clean and crisp delicateness. For good measure, a liberal use of hops lightens as well as heightens the feeling in your mouth. The luck of the Irish Dark indeed.

coldbrewky (1730) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2016
Out of the three separate bargain basement beers purchased.. this was by far the most palatable. Spot on to style. Malt centric and not too sweet. Finish is smooth and rounded. I actually was a bit disappointed that the bottle was empty after the long encounter with a particularly stubborn table top jigsaw resurrection,

PlutonowyMan (693) - POLAND - JUL 28, 2016
Kolor br?zowo rubinowy, zm?tniony. Piana be?owa, wysoka, d?ugotrwa?a nie zmniejsza swojego rozmiaru. Na szkle pozostawia grube w?sy. Aromat przynosi delikatn? palono??, s?odowo?? z ciemnymi owocami i odrobin? karmelu. Smak: ponownie, ciemne, sma?one owoce, przypominaj?ce nieco przypalon? marmolad?, karmel i s?odowo??. Na finiszu niezbyt intensywna, przpalona goryczka. Wysycenie ?rednie, pasuje. Idealnie schowany alkohol, powoduje, ?e piwo pije si? lekko.

Bire brune/marron, limpide, faible mousse. Nez de fruits secs, de malts et de caramel. Bouche sucre, caramel, sucre candy, crme de marrons, lgre amertume en fin de bouche. Bonne carbo, peu de longueur. Bire trop sucre et curante, sinon trs buvable en petite quantit.

Bottled 625ml (?). Good drinkability. Lots of icelandic moss throughout. Caramel being rather present. Medium to full bodied. Subdued bitterness. Without major flaws. Not bad.

Sonjeroo (20) - - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle from Galle, SL. Malty flavor, slightly sweet with a hint of acidity, which is refreshing for a SL beer. Made the mistake of drinking this after the Lion Stout, which diminished its desirability in comparison. Dark amber pour with a thick head.

tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Bottle at Colombo Hilton. Pours a dark amber with a thick white head. A slightly dry malty flavor and slightly dry finish. At 7.5%, a reasonable Irish Ale.

Bottle served extra cold. Pours amber. Very thin body, decent aroma. An oddity, but nice for a change in Sri Lanka.
