Big giant tan head. Vanilla, light chocolate, light coffee accents. Deep rich dark blackish hue. Very rich and smooth. Great malt accents, medium to full bodied, velvet, creamy and delicious. This is great stuff. Kinda weird flavors in the finish, yet nice bitterness; but this is good stuff. Anything from Sri Lanka is good!!!

Very drinkable and very missleading considering its big 8 per cent strength.Liquorice and fruit dominate but the overall taste is complex.It is hard to decide what is the dominant taste but this is truely a great stout.If you dont normally drink stouts please give this one a try-if you do then search this one out, its a winner.

I enjoyed this Stout every bit as much as Samuel Smith’s Imperial, if not more. An excellent sweet stout which I have no problem drinking more than one of in a sitting

Was greatly disappointed by this beer. Not a very good stout in my opinion, and I like stouts. Not even close to a Guinness, or a Murphy’s.

Justifiably famous, this fruit and nut concoction is made from the waters of Lovers Leap waterfall 7,000 feet above sea level. The fruits are dark but lively - blackcurrant and prune, with tawny port overtones. The nuts are almond and pistachio. This is a complex and flavoursome beer which offers something new with each mouthful. Stouts are not to everyone’s taste, but this is mellow enough to be an excellent introduction. As a lover of dark brews this gets full marks from me.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2002
Truly interesting. Balanced. A bit chocolate, a bit lactic sweetness, a bit roasty. I had no idea it was 8%. Not my fave, but very very smooth and nice. Good arome, better taste.

Very excellent stout, black in color, great lacy head, coffee undertones, a little bit of a smokey aftertaste, lots of great flavors, full bodied, great stout
