Poured from a 22 oz bomer into a pint glass.
A- pours thick and silent, dark garnet body with hues of red. Khaki head billows up and fades away leaving a nice crust of foam that slowly breaks up.
S- bitter coffee, roast coffee and slight chocolate.
T- Coffee with an imperceptable hint of chocolate, hop bitterness follows up with a lingering sweetness.
M- creamy soft, even the carbonation feels a bit like nitrogen. Coats nicely but could be more for an imperial.
D- Drinkable but not something I would pursue for my cellar.

Draft @ Chucks on 85th, served in a mason jar pint glass.
A- Muddy, cloudy, dark reddish coffee hue. Really dark brown at the bottom and lighter near the top. Virtually no head. Iron Horse beers always have this crazy murkiness to them…. I sort of dig it a bit. It adds a little homebrew allure.
S- First smell is chocolate covered espresso beans. The coffee aromas are pretty big on the nose, but has an "already brewed", dried coffee grounds left in the filter sort of smell.
T- Sugary malts, dark fruit, with heavy amounts of coffee. Coffee flavors are a bit more like ground or instant coffee, especially in the mouthfeel. Light caramel notes buried underneath the coffee. Tastes a lot like a maraschino cherry mixed with coffee, and maybe… some Oreo cookie? I don't know. Flavors are there, just not very crisp and hard to pinpoint….
MF- Drinkable, a bit lower on the carbonation, and some lactose in the aftertaste. Coffee was a little gritty, but I enjoyed that texture.
O- Not as sweet as the Irish Death, but the coffee was a nice addition. Chocolate could have been bolder and overall this beer could have improved with a bigger body. Wish the flavors were a bit crisper. Still a good try…. has that Iron Horse vibe and texture.

Appearance is murky black with a small tan head and little lacing. Smells of fresh coffee with a fruity undernote. Tastes great. A smooth mocha chocolate java body with medium strength. Feel is smooth and heavy with a stickiness. Overall quite enjoyable.

Thanks to MrVonzipper for sharing this unique beverage
Look: Dark brown in color with a 1/8 inch tan head and no retention with some spotty lacing
Smell: Espresso beans. Very potent...Stings the nostrils
Taste: Espresso beans upfront with some bisquit malt and chocolate. Interesting
Mouthfeel: Medium body and mild carbonation and a bit sticky
Overall: Not bad not good so I guess that means it is ok

Has a rich, creamy toffee colored head. Dissipates quickly. Has a light coffee smell. Initial taste very similar to the regular Irish Death, with cocoa and coffee aftertaste. Mouthfeel is creamy and sweet, but not too thick. Reminds me almost of a milk stout. Pretty decent overall.
