O'Hara's Leann Follain Stout
This is a 6.0% ABV stout from the Carlow Brewing Company of Carlow, Ireland. The beer pours completely black, even when held to the light. There is a tall, ragged, thick head that is light brown in color. The aroma is rich, dark roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate. The taste follows the aromas directly, dark roasted malt to the point of char, lots of coffee and various dark chocolate malts, with that classic Irish stout mineral-like tang on the finish. It is medium bodied with medium carbonation and it drinks very smooth and rich. This is good, I can only imagine how good if you were drinking it fresh out of a tap in Ireland!
