Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
O’Hara’s Leann Folláin (”leann folláin” being the Gaelic/Irish phrase meaning wholesome ale or stout) is a full-bodied extra Irish stout launched in 2009 following the very positive feedback to our limited edition O’Hara’s Celebration Extra Stout which was brewed in 2008. We have now included “Leann Folláin” in our 500ml bottle core brand range. O’Hara’s Leann Folláin at 6.0% abv is laden with complex chocolate and coffee flavours balanced by a robust bitterness and delicate spicy aroma imparted from the generous portions of Northdown and Fuggle Hops.

What's the matter, Craig?

What does it say on this jar?

"Craig."

Well I'm glad someone around here can read. The jar holds fourteen pickles. I had three yesterday, two for lunch today, and one and a half for snack. And now there are six and a half pickles in this jar. Simple math indicates...

Are you counting the one in your hand?

Ok, false alarm.

Deep brown, nearly black body; creamy, light tan head. Heavy roasted grain aroma that gives way to heady anise, cocoa, and vanilla scents. Bold dark malt flavors; a twinge of sourness; dry hoppiness. Heavy body; smooth and velvety mouthfeel.

An excellent dry stout with very fine charred bread crust and malted milk ball flavors. It leaves a nice dry, slightly astringent aftertaste as the smooth malt sweetness fades away on your tongue. A great find for stout lovers.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Pitch black beer with a creamy white head. Nose is the malt character of an RIS, but a full cocoa roundness. Hints of coffee, and the lightest minty pine from the English hops. Taste is smooth, like a nitro but not. chocolate, coffee, caramel and a full malt bill with light roast to balance out, maybe a touch of nutiness. Very dry but a round slickness that gives a sweet impression. Lightest hop at the end that lingers with the chocolate. It sticks in the nose as well. Wow, this beer far surpasses the other O'hara's I've had. What a treat and a hella price over at Tully's in wells. $2.50 a 330 bottle or something.
