Deep dark brown. Smells sweet, with a banana like aroma. Smells creamy as well if that makes any sense? Tastes sweet and I can't escape this banana like flavor... a chocolatey aftertaste. Only slightly boozey. The carbonation is good here. Good, easy drinking, medium octane beer!

Along with Mac and Jacks African Amber ale and Georgetown's Manny's Pale ale, this is probably one of Washingtons staples of craft-beer. You walk into a joint and ask for an Irish Death and everyone will know exactly what you are talking about. There's a reason for this; It is a fantastic ale. It is a beautiful beer. Inviting, dark appearance, but on the lighter end of medium body, goes in and down super smooth and has an excellent taste of nut, caramel, malts and balanced well with comforting hop flavor. Though maybe not an out-of-this-world, knock-you-off-your-feet beer in the vein of strong ales, nevertheless it is an always reliable, always enjoyable brew.
