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.

Appearance: dark brown almost black in color with a 1" head that lasted a while.

Smell: some roasted tones and chocolate is detectable by the nose.

Taste: roasted malt, dark chocolate, some coffee, and some dark bread. Bitterness is moderate here.

Mouthfeel: medium-heavy bodied beer. Light crispness to start, smoother at the finish.

Overall: this is a wonderfully balanced and flavorful stout that can be enjoyed more than just one pint.
