A deep black colour with reddishhue when held to the light. It pours with a thick creamy head from the keg, whereas the bottle version which is carbonated pours with a thick fluffy head that is almost tan in colour.
On the nose the drinker experiences a rich and complex coffee aroma with light liquorice notes. From the bottle, the carbonation accentuates and intensifies the roast aroma.
A generous addition of Fuggles hops lead to a tart bitterness which mingles with the roast espresso flavours on the tongue.
The flagship of the O’Hara’s brand, this uniquely Irish stout brings one back to how Irish stouts used to taste. First brewed in 1999, it has since been awarded prestigious honours for its quality and authenticity.
O’Hara’s Irish Stout has a robust roast flavour complemented by a full-bodied and smooth mouth feel. The generous addition of Fuggle hops lends a tart bitterness to the dry espresso-like finish. This sessionable stout beer is filled with rich complex coffee aroma mingled with light liquorice notes. The combination of traditional stout hops with an extra pinch of roast barley allows us to stay true to Irish tradition, recreating a taste so often yearned for by stout drinkers.
Fermentation Top fermentation
|We wanted to give a real and truly Irish flavour to our stout that can only be created by craft brewing with locally sourced Irish malts.
We use no less than 5 malt and wheat varieties to make our traditional dry Irish stout. This diverse malt combination is brought to life through our carefully managed mashing and boiling process. The fabulous flavours and aromas generated are offset by a number of select old style hop variety additions to create this truly complete Irish Stout.
Whether you select our nitrogenated draught stout, while you watch the hypnotic sight as the glass slowly cascades into a creamy head, or try our carbonated bottle stout, we hope you appreciate the flavours and enjoy.
|Serving Temperature 6-10°C. For our bottled version, some enjoy this stout served in the traditional way in southeast Ireland at room temperature “off the shelf”.
Food Pairing Excellent with seafood particularly shellfish and smoked salmon. Also pairs well with strong flavoured cheeses and dry cured meats such as Parma ham.
