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.

Bill Becker (947) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Pitch black with tan head of foam. I smell roasted malt that comes across as very dry and somewhat bitter. There is chocolate too and that adds sweet notes. Tastes like it smells. Roasty, sweet chocolate, dry bitterness from coffee. Very tasty. Smooth mouthfeel. I had not even heard of this brew. What a pleasant surprise!

Apariencia: Color negro azabache y opaco con una capa de espuma muy cremosa. Aroma: Agradable a chocolate, vainilla y pan, complejo intenso y lleno de sutiles matices. Sabor: Se repiten esos toques a vainilla acompańados de cacao y cereal con un leve amargor torrefacto.

Bottle from Cellar Door. Pours brown/black with single finger off white head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, molasses, some sweetness. Taste of some coffee, dark chocolate, sugary sweetness, caramel, toffee, bitterness from coffee all the way through, nice carbonation, quite chewy. Grand!

koshack (1707) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JAN 9, 2016
Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, brązowa, dość obfita. Aromat kawowy, wytrawny. W smaku słodkawe, z kwaskowym posmakiem. Bardzo przyjemne, nie jest do końca delikatne, ale lekko aksamitne. Jakby z dodatkiem owsa. Trochę jakby było z laktozą ale nie ma jej w składzie. Niskie wysycenie, bardzo pijalne. Ogólnie doskonały stout.

badgerben (5042) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Black color with a tall head. Strong espresso and cocoa aroma. Sharp, bitter chocolate taste. Barley and coffee notes. Light fruity esters towards finish. Dry, slightly bitter. Really nice.

Scrumpy369 (673) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 29, 2016
Bottle in Ireland. Black colour, with a small light brown head that disappears fast. Nose is light roasted malts, definite coffee. Taste is low roasted malty bitterness. Finish of chocolate powder and coffee. Low carbonation, but wouldn’t wish for more, as it makes the mouth feel very smooth. Nice.

garthicus (2920) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 10, 2010
Bottle @ The Bull & Castle. Appearance: Pitch black, oily, small brown/yellow head. Aroma: lots of iron & rust up front, tons of dark fruit, raisins, plums, blueberries, quite a tart aroma with a dash of smoke in there too. Lovely. Flavour: Super bitter, lots of raisins, tangy copper, very decent alcoholic bite with a great smoke finish. Delicious. A real shining star amongst the Irish craft brew scene

rozsoma (998) - Győr, HUNGARY - APR 12, 2012
Bottle 0,5L. BeerBier, Budapest. Stout with its creamy beige head. Smells like coffee and chocolate, tastes likes fizzy fruity drink. Redfruits what I mean. It could be thicker, but a very intensive stout. Good one.

Bottle at Reuben’s, thanks! Pours dark ruby tinged brown with foamy tan head. Aromatic pipe tobacco, chocolate and a touch of lactose on the nose. Full bodied with fairly vigorous carbonaton, dry roast barley up front with a touch of malt astringency finishing with malt chocolate and caramel.
