O’Hara’s Leann Folláin (”leann folláin” being the Gaelic/Irish phrase meaning wholesome ale or stout) is a full-bodied extra Irish stout launched in 2009 following the very positive feedback to our limited edition O’Hara’s Celebration Extra Stout which was brewed in 2008. We have now included “Leann Folláin” in our 500ml bottle core brand range. O’Hara’s Leann Folláin at 6.0% abv is laden with complex chocolate and coffee flavours balanced by a robust bitterness and delicate spicy aroma imparted from the generous portions of Northdown and Fuggle Hops.
Appearance: Deep black colour with a thick, tan, almost brown head. Luxurious chocolate aroma with smokey notes and coffee undertones.
Flavours: This full malt stout is laden with complex chocolate and coffee flavours balanced by a delicate hoppy spiciness.
Aftertaste: There is a distinctive smoky aftertaste to this stout that lingers on the tongue.
Matches well with any strong cheeses or cured meats. Also goes well with desserts.
