Big Lushious is a deep, rich stout that’s packed with flavor: roasted malts, all-natural dark chocolate, a subtle suggestion of burnt coffee grounds and a kiss of tart raspberries. At 7.8% ABV, it’s big, sumptuous and extravagant, but also balanced.

    Shared 750 ml bottle at local tasting. Pitch black colour, large tan head. Interesting and delightful aroma of ripe raspberries and dark chocolate, hints of marzipan and coffee. Rich mouthfeel and flavour, raspberries and dark chocolate again, sweet but acceptable, smooth and creamy. First class!

    Pours warm sable with a thick and rather persistent dark tan head that leaves good lacing. Bold flavor has strong chocolate and raspberry notes (me luvz both!) riding a bed of roast malt, quality coffee, and a caramel hint. Flavor is like raspberry fudge, sinfully sweet, with notes of roast coffee and smoky malt plus earthy and caramel dashes. Firm texture has some good fizz, and leaves a chocolaty and toasty finish. Lushious or luscious, this is a must for all stouties. Pick it whilst you can.
