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.

Style: American Extra Stout
Malt: Pilsner, Munich, Victory, Medium Crystal, Roasted Barley, Chocolate and Toasted Oats
Hops: Magnum
Yeast: American

IBU: 35

One of the few dark beers from Kane that didn't blow me away. Its fairly tasty but on the thin side and not nearly as flavorful as Kane's other dark offerings. Maybe my expectation was too high based on ANTEAD, Sunday Brunch and Morning Bell.

From a growler purchased 3 days ago

A: Pours a deep mahogany with a mocha colored head. Recedes to a lite mocha film
S: Smells of roasted malt hints of coffee, cocoa and caramel
T: Roasted coffee malts. Hint of cocoa and burnt sugar
MF: Light carbonation easy drinking. Coffee flavor lingers
O: Great stout. It isn't a double or imperial or coffee bomb. If you are looking for a classic well done stout, you could do a lot worse than this one.

4 oz sampler on tap at the brewery 3/26/15.

L: Midnight black. 1 finger head with poor retention, not much in the way of lacing or a ring.

S: Light roasted coffee, roasted malts, cocoa, and vanilla.

T: Generally follows nose, somewhat muted. Coffee and malts predominate.

F: A bit watery for the style, light to medium bodied, light carbonation.

O: A solid companion to the higher-ABV and thicker coffee bomb Morning Bell. Higher drinkability, but slightly muted taste by comparison.

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.
