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.

A bit aggressive on the bubbles, but they don't lie on the smoothness. Not much christmas taste-ish but great in any other aspect ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

No can do stouts better than the Irish. A bit too much carbonation pulls down the impression, but gee what a great and well-balanced taste and the aftertaste is delightfully long.

Piwo butelkowe. W aromacie kawa, czekolada i karmel. Kolor czarna smoła, piana mieszana zarówno drobno jak i wielkopęcherzykowa szybko jednak opada. W smaku wyczuwalne mocno nuty czekolady i kawy, lekko ostry posmak alkoholowy co dziwi przy 6%, jest też karmel i ziemista w odbiorze goryczka na kontrze. Piwo gęste i pełne. Świetny stout ale troszeczkę za bardzo nasycony.

500ml bottle, 6%. An excellent full-bodied heart-warming stout. Pours black with limited dark brown head. Sweet and strong lightly carbonated with some roasted coffee and hops in the flavour. More please!

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!
