A creamy Irish style stout with delicate chocolate and licorice flavours derived from all natural malts. It is very easy on the palate and offers a moderate alcohol content. Winner of the Champion Beer at the 1997 Australian International Beer Awards, Small Brewery Section.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2003 For grand ridge, I've kinda come to expect more. This is a reasonable stout, but not the superior quality of most of what this brewery produces. A little insipid. Nice coffee flavours though. RERATE 180703. The previous was written before I had really developed much of a taste for stout. This is actually a fine aussie stout. One of the best, really, in a country not known for producing stout. I don't know if I consider it world class, but it has a lot going for it, if still a bit thin.

I’m not a big fan of dry stouts. This was ok, big bitter burnt flavours and a bitter finish.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2003 Like it more and more every time i have it. Roasty, vegemitey nose. Very nice soft texture. Nicely bitter and roasty, a bit tarry aswell, it actually manages to cover the palate quite well, despite not having a very thick palate. Dry finish. Real nice.

Dark malt aroma, almost black with a tan head that imparts some ’creaminess’. Flavour has a fair amount of coffee but is too ’burnt’ tasting with a very bitter aftertaste. Tastes quite like guinness, for those who like that. I wanted to like this but couldn’t.
