My experience with O’Hara’s more commonly known Irish Dry Stout was good enough to make me want to try another. I’m sure glad I did. Leann Follain has touches of cream and soy sauce in the aroma under the usual notes of blackened barley. Flavor has beautiful rich chocolate notes that are balanced by a coffee-like bitterness that’s bright and roasty. Bone dry mouthfeel. This feels bigger than 6% - bold, viscous, and full-bodied. Here’s to hoping I can get my hands on some of the barrel-aged versions some point in the future.

berkshirejohn (5828) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2016
33cl bottle from Beer52.com. A cola coloured pour with a bright cherry red glint and a ring of tan head; aroma of chocolate and well roasted malts; rich and sharply bitter in the mouth, with burnt toast and coffee ground flavours; and then a dry finish with lingering bitterness and a satisfying warmth. A rather good stout.

PalCabral (156) - SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Trysil. Pours pitch black with a thick beige head that settles to a veil above the beer throughout the session. The aroma is awesome - a mix of roasted malts and cacao. The taste comes in waves, roasted malts and chocolate, backed by a powerful bitterness. The carbonation is very lively and it lifts the beer even further. Nice to see an irish brewer challenging the big guy like this!
