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.

Alengrin (5249) - BELGIUM - APR 19, 2015
A really Irish dry stout, from a 50 cl bottle. My first beer from this well-known and very Irish brewery. Opaque black colour under a creamy, lacing, yellow beige, fairly stable head. Very pleasant and attractively perfumed aroma of cocoa, milk chocolate, cappuccino, leather, bayleaf, raisins, walnuts, mocha ice cream and even some sweet honey, candied figs, black coffee grounds, pipe tobacco, some faint cloves, coconut, vanilla and liquorice perhaps and a vague hint of balsamic vinegar for balance; no off-flavours whatsoever, even the dreaded iron effect is nowhere to be seen. Dense taste with some candied sweetness but subduedly so, rather sparkling carbo (perhaps a bit much for this style), subtle sourish touch, supple and smooth mouthfeel but less creamy than expected from the style, a bit minerally, with a big, full dark maltiness in the middle, chocolatey, caramelly and nutty without any of these components dominating; finishes in a slightly ashy, coffee-like roasted bitterness, mouth-filling and lining the root of the tongue and the throat, very ’rounded’ and soft, with a leafy, somewhat spicy hop bitterness adding complexity; retronasal spiciness not unlike cloves and vanilla. In all: a very decent, robust and well-crafted dry stout, with a very inviting aroma; if I’d have to find something to pick on, it would be the carbonation, which is a little bit too high for the style and distracts a bit from the creamy maltiness. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this very much, highly recommendable for ’maltheads’. In terms of style: indeed maybe a bit sweet for a dry stout, so I can go along with the classification as a plain ’stout’ without further specification.
