I'm not a huge fan of stouts but I was quite excited to see this pour. Its very dark brown, just a shade lighter than coffee, and has a light brown head that dissipates quickly but looks good while it's there.
The smell is fantastic. A huge dose of coffee hits the nose first, followed by, well, even more coffee. It isn't terribly complex, but its very appetizing.
The taste is very well balanced, with lots of malt up front and a bitter finish highlighted with coffee and earthy tones. I'm already a fan of this beer.
O'Hara's is a full-bodied beer and is quite creamy, but maintains a dry finish. Very comfortable and easy to drink.
Overall, this is definitely something I'll pick up again when I see it.
