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°

Rating this one for some time back. Poured a deep black color, topped iwth a fine tan colored head, nice retention. Aroma was quite roasty, nice chocolate and some coffee notes as well present. Taste had a slight sweet start, roasted body with coffee, mild bitterness in finish. Was a pretty nice one.

Marketed in the pub as a seasonal double stout. Pours black as a typical Irish Stout with a think nitrogen charged head. Aroma of chocolate and espresso. Flavor was full bodied, complex roasted malts, and very well balanced. Delicious!

Bottled. Pours pitch black. Dry, full bodied, highbitterness, balanced CO2. Heavily roasted taste, cocoa, coffee beans, hops, quite spicy. Good one. (2009-05-28)

Opaque black stout. Thick tan head. Semi soft and semi dry palate. Fresh minerally dark malt. Roasted but not hard roasted. A touch of espresso and distinct unsweet dark chocolate. Finishes soft and minerally. Decent.

750ml bottle pours almost black in color with some lovely red highlights when held to a light source. Aromas of light roasted malts with chocolate and earthy notes. Taste is light roasted malty bitterness with a chocolatey malt sweetness with some citrusy and earthy hop bitterness leading to a dry finish. Light to medium body with decent carbonation and a pleasantly smooth mouthfeel. A very nicely done stout that I thoroughly enjoyed.

750ml bottle - pours pitch black with nice tan head and instant lacing. Nose is roasted malts, coffee and peppermint (reminds me of a mint candy from Vichy, France), Flavor is much like the nose. taste is mainly sweet but ends on a bitter note. Flat, smooth and a dry finish. tasty for nothing to write home about.

Now this is a stout done right. Got a 750ml bottle. Roasted, coffee aroma, with dark chocolate earthy hop .. Solid brown-black color with a slight creamy head. Tons of flavor and body . Can’t wait to get my hands on this again if they produce it again .

Indra (2710) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - AUG 5, 2010
750ml bottle. Fully roasty, coffeeish aroma, featuring almost charred, black malts, dark chocolate, butternut, marshmallow, faint black olive, earthy hop and charcoal. Solid brown-black color with a very fine head. Flavor is equally roasty, with a faint amount of dark chocolate sweetness, smoke, burnt grain, some espresso and dark toffee. Actively carbonated and extremely dry on the palate, body is medium. Exemplary version of this style.
