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.

ThisWangsChung (836) - Leonardtown, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2013
Reviewed 1/15/2013. 11.2 oz bottle poured into a Samuel Smith pint glass. A: Pours an ultra-dark brown color. Not perfectly opaque, mind you, but nearly. The head is a two finger heavy cream color with nice texturing, before it settles to one finger. Nice retention, too. S: There are a ton of roasted malts and coffee. Some chocolate pops up, as well, perhaps even a hint of smoke. It also smells hoppy, even - maybe it IS generously hopped? I mean, that character of grapefruit peel prominent in Cascade hops is unmistakable here. T: Again, there’s a healthy flavor of grapefruity hops right there in the midtaste. It starts a bit chocolaty before the hops come in full (well, moderate) force. Finish is pure roasted barley. Generally, it’s mild in flavor; while this keeps the competing flavors in check, it makes it a bit dull. Luckily it’s not overly acidic as many well-hopped stouts/porters tend to be. M: Hits the clean dryness typical of the style well, but the finish goes too far into being astringent. A bit insubstantial and undercarbonated in its feel; par for the course in many dry stouts. Great drinkability nonetheless. O: And as I finish my glass, I notice the bottle cap somehow fell down in there. How the hell did that happen?! Oh well, this a fine offering. Not great, but fine.

La Oharas Leann Follain est une bière Stout brassée par la brasserie Carlow Brewing Company en Irlande. Elle se présente sous une robe noire opaque dotée d’une tête crémeuse beige assez tenace et propose en dégustation des arômes de malts de chocolat rôti, de réglisse, de malts torréfiés avec une note de café légèrement sucré, et un soupçon léger de vanille. Elle reste une bière moyennement corsée dans une texture crémeuse et à la carbonation moyenne. Une bière irlandaise stout corsée et savoureuse qui mérite toute votre curiosité !

Fortes notes de café, grillé, assez peu sur le chocolat (un peu plus au nez). Bonne stout, agréable en fin de repas.

From tap. Black with a light beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, toffee, mild coffee and cacao. Medium creamy body with a light sweetness and a light bitterness. The flavor is again full of roasted malt with chocolate, lightly nutty, caramel and hints of honey.

Appearance: clear ruby brown with one finger of beige head, good retention and no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: dry cacao and coffee roasty malt, vanilla, hint of nut, light ash. (7/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-full body, moderate-low carbonation, dry mildly bitter finish. (4/5) To be honest, I didn’t have high expectations here - but it was actually all right. Roasted malts give a dry cacao and coffee character on the front, with a hint of vanilla and nuttiness on the way to a slightly ashy, pleasantly dry finish. I wouldn’t say no to another. Sláinte mhaith! (14/20) 7/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com

limbonicartbeer (92) - - FEB 10, 2017
Cerveza color negro. Corona de espuma negruzca pequeña con buena retención. Aromas a chocolate, café, maltas tostadas. Al paladar consistencia ligera, con notas de sutil amargor, con toques de chocolate, café y tostado. En mi opinión buena cerveza, le falta un poco de cuerpo para ser aún mejor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
