Clone of O'Flannagin Irish Stout #58 HomeBrew Talk top 100 "Absolutely delicious. The new house stout around here. It is smooth, creamy, malty and a nice hit of chocolate. The Roasted is barely noticeable through the intense cream. The aroma is powerful and malty. Perfect bitterness. This beer is great!" [The original recipe had IBU at 17, 1 oz of Goldings at 60m; I increased the bitterness by preference] Cailin (girl) Alainn (Beautiful) in Gaelic
Apparently from the Guinness Website. Will be bottled not kegged so no nitrogen carbonation, oh well, too bad.
