Iron Horse "Quilters Irish Death"
Iron Horse Brewery - Ellensburg, Washington USA
Dark Smooth Ale (ABV 7.8%)

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]


Rating: 3.5/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a murky dark brown with a small (less than 1 finger) light brown fizzy head that diminished in a matter of seconds, down to just a small collar with fair light lacing.

The aroma was somewhat mild with a roasted chocolate malt and a light doughy yeast with notes of dark fruit (raisins and dates), coffee, cola, molasses and a mild alcohol tinge.

The taste was a bold malty sweet with a good strong dark fruit presence and a hint of molasses and maybe chocolate from the beginning, and then took on a nice bold roastiness with a touch of coffee and a nice mellow alcohol ending. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow, and what was left behind is still somewhat of a tasty mystery to me.

Mouthfeel was just about medium in body with a thin dry texture and a fizzy carbonation.

Overall the brewer is correct, I just can not put this one into any one style category. All I know is it is damn tasty and I like it...
