Yeah, appearance wise it's good. I've noticed some of their seasonals have slightly downplayed the O'Hara's logo, Curim's new label and 51st State (NEIPA) in particular. The stout looks good and it's very recognisable when on tap too.

Appearance of beer:

Pours a good dark chocolate colour, not quite jet black though, there's a bit of brownness. Good 2 fingers of white head but it took a bit of a heightened pour to get it.

It has a darker head that I expected. Good head but dissipates pretty quickly.

Sorry, Late to the party ( note to self - its not a party. It's a school night)

Aroma:

Some chocolate (or is it cocoa?)...not quite sure. Bit of roast barley and grainyness.

Not getting a whole lot of hops?

I'm mostly getting the coffee roastiness.

Pours very dark. Torch light from phone bearly shines through

I'm just trying the Leann Follain (I know :() and it's very hoppy and resiny - much more so than when I've had it before. The hop flavour and aroma is really coming to the fore - a bit strange for a beer like this.


Lots of dry roast, milk chocolate and espresso, but all the while the hopping rate is distracting.

Not getting any hops either. A strong roasted aroma.
