My experience with O’Hara’s more commonly known Irish Dry Stout was good enough to make me want to try another. I’m sure glad I did. Leann Follain has touches of cream and soy sauce in the aroma under the usual notes of blackened barley. Flavor has beautiful rich chocolate notes that are balanced by a coffee-like bitterness that’s bright and roasty. Bone dry mouthfeel. This feels bigger than 6% - bold, viscous, and full-bodied. Here’s to hoping I can get my hands on some of the barrel-aged versions some point in the future.
