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.

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.
