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°

omhper (19189) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2009
Bottled at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Transparently black, huge firm head. Aroma of coffe and chocolate. Mid-dry, feels light and airated despite a core of dense oily molasses. Grass caramel and chocolate comes along. A bitterness, which has resiny undertones, keeps growing. Feels rich,flavourful and potent, yet drinkable and fairly slim.
