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.

ciaranc (1102) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 2, 2012
Pour is black with a frothy, dissipating tan head. Nose is dry roasted malt, dust, molasses, liquorice and hints of coffee. Flavour follows the nose, roast malt, not overly done, with some dark fruit sweetness and more liquorice. A little bit of bitterness in the finish. Really nicely balanced this. Palate is medium to full bodied, a little creamy, flat carbonation. Extremely drinkable. Excellent.

Doofgoblin (513) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Really liking this one! The aroma is wham in your face; lots of toasted malt character with a coffee element as well. Pours a dark black with a tan pillowy head that fades to lacing that loves clinging to the pint glass. Taste is somewhat sweet with notes of chocolate, coffee, and especially toasted malt. Finishes exceptionally smooth and flavorful but with enough bitter dryness to prepare you for the next sip.

Poured from bottle 0,33. Completely black body, but there are copper-red glimpses when looking towards the light. Lovely brown foamy head looks very yummy. Speaking about nose and taste: i was suprised how uber-STRICT is it.. Just like Will Smith in suite starring in MIB)) Nothing superfluous, but tons of roasted malts and burnt coffee beans. Maybe 8-9 C was too cold.. A posh body and creamy texture, pretty drinkable. Continuous semi-dry finish, very balanced. Fits well with chocolate cakes and sweeties)

Piękna drobnopęcherzykowa piana koloru beżowego. Aromaty gorzkiej czekolady i espresso, chwilami alkoholowego likieru czekoladowego. Aksamitne w smaku, goryczka na odpowiednim poziomie. Świetny stout.

rand (1700) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle 330 ml from Amstein - St-Légier (CH). Black beer with an average tan head. Roasted aromas of black chocolate, moccha, hint of vanilla. The taste is burnt, very perfumed of chocolate-moccha, a bit black fruits, touch of vanilla and spiced impression. Bitterness of roast braided by hops. An in every respect remarkable Stout.
