Pours near black with deep brown edges when held to light. Foamy, light toffee colored head.
Aroma is primarily of caramel, toffee malts, some dark fruit with a faint earthy, floral, spicy hop backing. The taste follows the nose fairly well.
Medium body, mild foamy carbonation.
A decent beer, and a very malt-forward example of the style. A bit forgettable, but I still enjoyed my bomber of it.

I had Irish Death on-tap at Applebee's in Bellevue Washington in a standard pint glass, by itself and without food. The overall appearance, although generally unimpressive, consists of a thick, rough, light brown, melted marshmallow-like head with an extremely dark-brown body. The smell, besides the taste, is the second best aspect, it is fairly complex with very little influence of hops, holding aromatic hints of bitter chocolate, almonds, brown sugar, and sweetened coffee.
The taste is outstanding; this is the best sweet, dark American ale I've ever had. Irish Death takes the concept of a dessert beer to new levels. Although not complex or hoppy, it is absolutely delicious. The taste is mostly that of chocolate, primarily sweet and smoky, barely bitter, feels heavy, thick; anything but watery, fairly sour and shockingly smooth for being 7.8% ABV.
Between the rich taste and the consistency of its flavor and aroma, Irish Death is a personal favorite of mine. However, folks who prefer more bitter American ale's may want to put this sweeter Northwestern brew on the bottom of their lists.

Nice looking beer. Had it on tap at a new restaurant in the area, Hop Jacks. Decent head, left phenomenal lace. The aroma was average and the taste was far from complex. Definitely more on the sweet side and very low bitterness. Good mouthfeel but not much of an aftertaste. Overall not a bad stout, won't be my go-to stout but I could "session" these on occasion.
