COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
10th anniversary limited edition
Reviving a tradition that had all but disappeared for over 150 years, the O’Hara family established a brewery in their home county of Carlow in south-east Ireland in 1996 producing beers of traditional Celtic and Irish origin, O’Hara’s Irish Stout was born in 1998, winning the Championship Trophy and two gold medals at the International Millennium Brewing Industry Awards in 2000. The O’Hara’s brand has now arrived at it’s 10th anniversary. To mark that occasion we present as a limited edition O’Hara’s Celebration Stout - rich in Irish malts balanced by a full bodied bitterness and delicate spicy aroma from Northdown and Fuggles hops with a luxurious chocolate finish. 10.6°

Cornfield (5460) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Big-ass swing-top bottle from Pat’s Liquors in Porter, Indiana: This pours a deep, dark brown body with a lofty, sustained light brown head and provides a whole lotta lace. The aroma is roasted, almost burnt dark malts with some bittersweet chocolate. Medium bodied, the flavor remains roasty, added some coffee, with the chocolate sweetening up a bit. Dry finish. Not bad.

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Pretty basic dry stout. Well balanced, roasty, slightly bitter, and a bit creamy yet light and easy drinking. Not all that impressive, but pleasant none the less.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle@WSF09. Pretty damn good Dry Stout. Well balanced and flavourful. All the flavours you’d expect.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2009
Dark brown with a thick head. Roasty, stingy nose with light peanut and full rich malts. Rich, chocolatey character with a slight acidic tang and again vague nuts. This is a quality take on an Irish stout. It has richness and malt complexity and yet a lot of drinkability as well.

Beershine (5213) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Bottle. Thick black pour with tan head and thick lattice lacing. Chocolate, cola, and Panda black licorice in aroma. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Deep subtle roast, some licorice again, bittersweet chocolate, and good tar. Slightly burnt but very interesting and good.

daknole (8949) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 23, 2009
Another fun beer shared by Oakes and Beershine. Black pour with a big tan head. Roast, chocolate and a organic cola aroma. Flavor is very creamy, bitter chocolate, roast, coffee and a bit of lactic tartness. Good beer.

Botella, Ørsted Bar, Copenhagen. Deep dark brown colour, almost black. Chocolate roasty malty aroma. Smokish well roasted maltiness in the flavour with chocolate, light spice and coffee. Pleasant well bitter roasty chocolate finish.
