COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
True to it’s name, “Leann Folláin” being the Gaelic for “wholesome stout”, our full-bodied extra Irish stout is a fantastic example of how good stout can taste. Flavours of dark chocolate tones with a hint of vanilla combine with the mild mocha aroma. Opaque black in appearance with a tan head, this luxurious stout has a classic European hop bitterness giving a refreshing bite after the chocolate subsides.

jamaty (2098) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Negra, opaca. Espuma abundante al servir, luego queda en poco. Aroma muy marcado, ahumado, tabaco. Compleja en boca, al principio tira ma a chocolate y frutal, llenando el paladar. Luego evoluciona a un final ultraseco donde vuelve a salir el tabaco. Es jna buena cerveza, aunque puede resultar arisca, incluso para iniciados. Habria que comparar con la stout normal,excelente.

Draught, KØ15. Pours hazy very dark brown with small, light tan head. Clear aroma of roast, with notes of malt and coffee. Bitter, roasty flavour with notes of malt, caramel and coffee. Nutty touches. Bitter, roasty aftertaste. Quite refreshing for the style. Not bad.

obguthr (6180) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2015
Cocoa and horehound nose. Black, thick khaki head with great retention. Chocolate and horehound. Charcoal finish. Thin bodied, soft carbonation. Nice complexity for an Irish stout, but I guess technically, it is a stout from Ireland.

corkyrory66 (1812) - BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2015
Irish stout de 6 % abv, en format 50 cl. Degré plato de 14,5°, et niveau ebu de 45. Défini par son brasseur comme un « wholesome stout ». Couleur noir intense, opaque. Mousse brun clair, superbement crémeuse. Arômes de cappuccino, café torréfié finement, chocolat noir et au lait, praliné, touche de vanille. 1ère bouche bien texturée, à la superbe entame café/bois brûlé délicatement/chocolat noir. Arrière-bouche de qualité, très goûteuse, superbe. 2ème au très bel équilibre malt/houblon/épices. Arrière-bouche très nuancée, complexe, longue. 3ème avec du chocolat fondu aux malts. Arrière-bouche assez exceptionnelle, sur du cappu avec une ganache. Longueur avec un nez chocolaté superbe. Saveurs qui se développent, grande ampleur, quelques baies noires, épices, praliné, noisettes. Jambes groupées, finement marquées. Levure douce, fine. Alcool très bien, il développe la longueur de façon remarquable. Finale chocolatée, douce, avec un rien d’épices. CONCLUSION : un superbe stout. Vraiment bien typé, vraiment complet, agréable, long. Et si en plus il est « wholesome », alors que dire ? … Merci.

vinivini (1966) - Gomel, BELARUS - MAY 15, 2015
Black coffee colour, moderate head, average retention, nice lacing. Aroma of earth, coffee, chocolate, wine. Medium body, oily. Bittersweet taste, winy with coffee & cocoa notes. Light bitterness. Coffee & a bit of grass in ending. It’s a good stout objectively. The only problem is I don’t like coffee.
