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.

Bottle from Tesco in Sligo. Wasn’t too taken by this, really burnt taste but not thick enough to make up for it.

Une bière de dessert, ou de veillée,... la note de chocolat noir annoncée sur la bouteille est effectivement très présente... Le reste est plus subtil. Une stout, une vraie ! Je n’ai qu’une seule envie après cette découverte, me faire du stock!

AKA O’Haras Extra Irish Stout. 330 ml bottle Pours very dark brown, essentially black but with mahogany edges in the light. Large, creamy beige head. Impressive. Aroma (after the head dies down): Appealing. Bready and nutty Rich malty flavor with plenty of dark roasted grain flavor and just a touch of smoke. Medium bitterness. Medium+ body with a dry finish. Overall: clearly above average for style.

Black beer, dimishing light brown head. Malty, light chocolate aroma. Malt, light chocolate, a touch of coffee and a little bitter hop. Nice, dry, almost smoky finish. Rich, creamy mouthfeel. Lovely.

Gary (1972) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2016
330ml . A low boost stout that came in a differing box of craft beers ...I’m seldom motivated to ratebeer , but this was a gift . Roasted malt nose giving birth to coffee nuance , burnt toast , cole , licorice , caramel syrup. Good fucken looking beer .. creamy and dark ..just like i like my women . Nice dry roasted , burnt , bitter sweet palate , every nuance offered on this nose resides in the flavour. Punchy little stout . enjoyable

Guinness achtige stout met vanille. Wel iets minder dan de enige echte, en ruik nog steeds weinig.
