3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pitch black, smooth brown head.
Very burnt aromas, slightly smoky with some dark fruits.
Tastes very chocolaty, decadently so. Hop do show through and bring a bitter finish with long chocolate, slightly dry.
A nice, traditional stout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle conditioned, imported to New Zealand. Aroma of chocolate, christmas cake and allspice. Alluring.
Appeared with a mocha coloured head on an almost imprenetrable dark chocolate coloured pint. Chocolate to taste with lovely bitterness that spreads warmly to other parts of the tongue. Big flavour and I’d love to see how it would fare on a session.
Overall a very pleasant drop, a must for lovers of chocolate malt and fans of Irish Stouts.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by Crosling. Poured a deep brown/black color with a creamy 1/4 inch beige head that faded to a bubbly layer. Aroma of sweet chocolate, some roasted malt, a chalky character, and a light tartness. Smooth, moderately sweet entry with a moderate dry roastiness and some dark bakers chocolate leads into a muted middle with no real defining characteristics that just sort of ends out of the blue. Low carbonation and decent mouthfeel. This beer was weird, it showed some promise in the flavor initially, it just never really evolved into anything, it just sort of lingered and stopped.

750ml bottle of dark black stout. Smells decent, roasty, standard. The flavor wasn’t very robust at first and then it kind of wraps around your tongue. This was a nice stout and would be good in sixers. I’ll have to take a look at some other O’hara beers soon.

Sampled from a 750 ml brown swing top bottle this beer poured black with an enormous dark brown head. The aroma was a very nice sweet and toasty malt element with a touch of chocolate and fruits. The flavor was creamy, bitter and very roasty with a moderate smoky element. The finish was long, roasty and smoky. Ok.
