Tidal Series.
In the late 1860s, Michael F. Claffey came to America from the small village of Port Omna in County Galway, Ireland. Four generations later, we brewed this beer to both celebrate our Irish heritage and to honor our family on both sides of the Atlantic. Port Omna is an American Extra Stout, taking characteristics from each sub-style within the stout category. The medium body and smoothness is reminiscent of an oatmeal stout and supports aromas of roasted malts, rich coffee, and hints of cocoa. Flavors of bittersweet chocolate and the medium malt character of an American stout add a layer of sweetness, while its relatively high 6.2% ABV and assertive roast flavors are familiar characteristics of foreign extra stouts. Port Omna wraps our favorite stout flavors into one very special, very limited-release beer.

Growler from Joe Canals in Iselin, NJ. Pours a dense black brown color with a moderate rocky tan head. Rich roasted malt nose has notes of earthy malt, oats and toasted walnuts. Flavor follows the nose with hints of tobacco, sweet chocolate and medium roast coffee. This is an excellent representation of an American Stout. Sweet, complex, earthy, flavorful and drinkable. Worth seeking out.

Roast and coffee on the nose. Appearance is a dark brown with a tan head. Flavor is muted. It has notes of roast with hints of licorice and a medium amount of water character. Bitterness is medium high. Overall, it's an easy drinking beer, but the flavor is s little muddled. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black with a one finger tan head with nice lacing. Aroma is of coffee, coco, molasses, caramel, and sweet malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice stout.

On tap at that dump Irish mile, pours black with light off white head. Notes are milk chocolate, roasted malt, nuts, licorice, and some light coffee. Nice and viscous but refreshing as possible. Really fucking solid brew from Jerz, Kane and Carton are killing it these days.

Draft brewery. Dark brown, basically black, thin mocha head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, and subtle coffee. Taste follows but mainly milk chocolate. A little too thin on the body. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
