Notes / Commercial Description:
In the late 1860s, Michael F. Claffey came to America from the small village of Port Omna in County Galway, Ireland. Four generations later, we brewed this beer to both celebrate our Irish heritage and to honor our family on both sides of the Atlantic. Port Omna is an American Extra Stout, taking characteristics from each sub-style within the stout category. The medium body and smoothness is reminiscent of an oatmeal stout and supports aromas of roasted malts, rich coffee, and hints of cocoa. Flavors of bittersweet chocolate and the medium malt character of an American stout add a layer of sweetness, while it’s relatively high 6.6% ABV and assertive roast flavors are familiar characteristics of foreign extra stouts. Port Omna wraps our favorite stout flavors into one very special, very limited-release beer.

Tasting at Kane

Pours an opaque black

Aroma is definitely coffee. Maybe chocolate, but sometimes a heavy coffee gives me a chocolate aroma too.

Taste starts with the coffee, but you are hit with a sweet, yes, chocolate.

Feel- I could have this on my tongue all day. Perfection to me

If I see this on a beer list I go right to it.

Served into a snifter at the Kane Brewery in Ocean, NJ.
A: Pours a very dark brown, nearly black color with a robust tan head, fair retention and limited lacing.
S: Aromas understated with unsweetened cocoa and vanilla notes most evident.
T: Roasty at the cocoa end of the spectrum with molasses and vanilla notes. Flavors subtle and complex. Bitterness strikes an excellent balance.
M: Full bodied with moderate carbonation
O: Drinkable and enjoyable.
