Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 12-27-2001

The flagship of the O’Hara’s brand, this uniquely Irish stout brings one back to how Irish stouts used to taste. First brewed in 1999, it has since been awarded prestigious honours for its quality and authenticity.

O’Hara’s Irish Stout has a robust roast flavour complemented by a full-bodied and smooth mouth feel. The generous addition of Fuggle hops lends a tart bitterness to the dry espresso-like finish. This sessionable stout beer is filled with rich complex coffee aroma mingled with light liquorice notes. The combination of traditional stout hops with an extra pinch of roast barley allows us to stay true to Irish tradition, recreating a taste so often yearned for by stout drinkers.

03/15/12 On Tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Full bodied, low ABV but with flavor. No upfront espresso/coffee or chocolate just a creamy/buttery toasted malty flavor.

Poured into a tulip glass, formed a thin head that dissipated rather quickly, decent amount of carbonation. Roasted malt is pretty strong with this one.

Had a somewhat thin consistency, definitely thinner than what I'd expect from a typical Irish stout. Very drinkable. The carbonation is actually rather pleasant. Not a whole lot of bitterness to it, just very warm hints of coffee and a very smooth maltiness. Definitely worth buying.
