Style: Irish Dry Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

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.

500ml bottle from Reilly's, Lisnaskea (£2.29):a
An okay stout that has a enough flavour with some dark malts & touches of sweetness helping things down, there was the odd hint of smoke coming through & it was definitely strong enough but I didn't seem quite as good as the brewery's flagship Irish Stout & as such it's probably not one that I'd pick up again; drinkable but far from the brewery's best effort.

This one gives some head. Very dark in color. Lots of sediment in the bottom of the bottle. Wow I can drink that. Best I've had from the brewery. Chocolate and roast. Delicious nice mouth feel. Creamy. Wow I wish this came in a six pack.

Pitch black with tan head of foam.

I smell roasted malt that comes across as very dry and somewhat bitter. There is chocolate too and that adds sweet notes.

Tastes like it smells. Roasty, sweet chocolate, dry bitterness from coffee. Very tasty.

Smooth mouthfeel.

I had not even heard of this brew. What a pleasant surprise!
