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.

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
