COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Edition No. 4 – O’Hara’s Leann Folláin 8.1% abv
Edition no. 4 in the series is our highly acclaimed O’Hara’s Leann Folláin, winner of the Concours M Biere Pierre Celis Platinum Medal at the Mondial de la Biére September 2014 in France and Gold Medal winner at the Irish Whiskey Awards October 2014. Each swing top bottle is individually numbered and is one of only 5500 bottles produced.

To craft this beer, luxurious full bodied Leann Folláin stout was matured for 90 days in Irish whiskey barrels and conditioned in bottle to provide a gentle carbonation. During this time the dark chocolate flavours and well balanced bitterness of the stout combine with the essence of whiskey residing in the oak barrels. The finish is a sophisticated stout, rich and dark with the mild warmth of smooth Irish whiskey.

alteregoo (1193) - POLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Piana sycząca i nietrwałą, barwa ciemno brązowa. W aromacie dość ubogo, mało intensywnie - odrobina kawy zbożowej, pieprzu z namiastką whisky i wina w tle. W smaku nieco lepiej, ale również nie imponuje wyrazistością. Jest sporo kawy, nieco gorzkiej czekolady, mało słodyczy, trochę winnej kwaskowatości, sporo posmaków whiskey. W aftertejsie stara beczka i pety z popielniczki, do tego wysoka, zalegająca goryczka, nieprzyjemne taniny i tani koniak... Wysycenie średnie do niskiego (za wysokie jak na stout), alkohol niby ułożony, ale przeszkadza z uwagi na brak ciała, wodnistą konsystencję...
Bardzo nieudane piwo biorąc pod uwagę fakt, że podstawowa wersja niemal "wyrywa z butów"... Poza tym akcenty z barrel agingu mało intensywne, to zaś co pozostało jest nieprzyjemne w odbiorze.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer & Beyond. Thanks tom. Very dark brown with a quickly dissolving bubbly tan head. A little caramel and vanilla in the nose, a little sour, a little sweet, a little vanilla and wood in the mouth. Rather light-bodied, honey finish.

DraftDodger (1264) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2016
Copenhagen 30/10 2016. 75 cl bottle from Meny. Label in the style of old musty pergament. Pours very dark brown with small beige head. Settles as thin patchy layer of foam. No lacing. Aroma is rich and sweet. Brown sugar, vanilla, wood and quite strong alcohol. Light carbonation and medium thick palate. Flavor is quite sweet followed but balanced by by coffee bitterness. Aftertaste is bitter sweet with heavy alcohol lingering. Kind of thin for a stout - but a nice barrel aged semi-alcoholic beer which packs a punch. A nice vanilla coffee punch.
