Dry stout Irelandaise de 4.3% d’aclool, bouteille de 500mL disponible dans les SAQ, bien mousseuse, bien houblonné. Médaille d’or de la bière à Londres en 2000. nazzty (1376) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2013
Top class! Very roasted malts combined with large, dry hops and give good body. Good and own a little smoky character. TheBeerLover (1027) - DC Metro Area, USA - JAN 25, 2006
O’Hara’s Celtic Stout pours to a beautiful deep ebony color with a creamy off white head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose is just packed with aromas of dark malt and roast. Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted barley, and a back drop of hop aroma invite you in to take a sip. The palate is firm with outstanding flavors of dark malts, coffee, and roast. This beer finishes with more dark chocolate malt flavors up front, then ends with a bone dry, roasty and bitter finish.
This is a truly exceptional version of Irish Stout, and it is without a doubt one of the most impressive beers I have ever tasted, in any style. This beer is world class, and I suspect this beer would make the most loyal Guinness drinker take a step back. I know I did. This is how Guinness use to taste, and O’Hara’s just might be the most impressive Irish stout being shipped from Ireland today, at least in bottles. I know I will be drinking a lot of this beer from now on. If more Irish pubs start to carry it here in the US, O’Hara’s just might become my Irish stout of choice from now on. This beer is Ireland. O’Hara’s is a natural with shell fish. Try this beer with oysters, little neck clams, mussels, crabs, or lobster. It would also work well with lamb or beef stew, or other hearty meat dishes.

UPDATED: JUL 25, 2015 Deep black Smells strongly of roasted malts. Tastes nice and malty, with a hint of lots of coffee and chocolate. Light carbonation leaves a wonderful soft malt on the tongue. Nice and light for a stout, but lots of flavour here. I could drink this all night.

Drinking this at King’s Café, Rijeka, but regularly at Sheridan’s pub in Zagreb. Black with blood red tint and a perfect creamy tan head that lasts all through the glass, leaving thick lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, hints of chocolate, then coffee with milk in the taste. Sweet like red fruit and well balanced light roasted bitterness. Smooth and thick, but light and drinkable, with extremely full mouthwatering taste. Someone in the pub once said it’s like drinking silk panties :-) A truly wonderful stout. wbrown1499 (3) - Summerville, South Carolina, USA - JUN 14, 2002 does not count
Doesn’t fill you up, but still has the great stout qualities that one expects. I would say similiar to Guinness, but without the somewhat nasty aftertase from Guinness. ZiGGyMaidEN (18) - Tórshavn, FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 22, 2010
Very excellent and surpricing beer! first time I tasted it, I had to leave it unfinished. But now I’m sitting with a proper pint glass and sampling it. It one of the best beer I’ve tried so far!
A very dark colour. Not a single sing of red or brown.
A brownish foamy head .. nice
