COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fatty Appleton, a colourful brewery worker, was known for his ability to carry 2 Firkin barrels under his arms (yes, they’re known as Firkins). It’s a skill that would work as ’crowd control’ when things got out of hand at the local. Deep and rich in colour, Stout has a slightly nutty roasted flavour and chocolate characteristics, with a smooth and creamy body and pleasantly bitter after-taste. Fatty Appleton would approve!

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2004
Bottle: Pours black with a big solid tan head that lasts well. Little lacing. Aroma of bitter chocolate and coffee with a tiny bit of yeast (vegemite) and hops. Tastes great!! Very drinkable dark chocolate and black coffee although slightly grainy. Good bitterness that leaves you wanting more, however, it was somewhat thin with an astringent aftertaste. Nice beer.

Holy crap - where did this come from? I know I’ve had this before at some stage but I don’t remember it being this good. Black as black - completely opaque. Reasonable tan head. Seemingly low carbonation on the pour and open but some fizziness in the mouth. Amazing aroma - smooth malted milk, caramel, chocolate marshmallows, coffee with none of that graininess of a lot of stouts. Kinda like one of those stupid caramel-flavoured coffee things only in beer (and delicious). Certainly doesn’t taste as good as it smells but is nice nonetheless. More marshmallows and a creamy yet thinnish mouthfeel with a roasty finish and not too much hop. Really good.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 24, 2004
Dark, sweet and sour aroma, like stale coffee and fresh apple cider. medium bodied with some acidity, malty and roasted then drying out. Yep, Stout.

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2004
Dark brown small tan head, lots of roast and chocolate aroma. Good mouthfeel. Some bitterness, just about right for making you want more.

dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2004
Dark brown with a small, light brown head. Nice chocolate malt and roast barley aroma, but with some harsh, burnt astringent smells also. Taste of roast barley with a hint of coffee.

Trogdor (196) - Cairns, AUSTRALIA - DEC 17, 2003
A nice stout, light body, not much head, roasted malt flavours [coffee, caramel, cocoa], nice level of bitterness and pleasant aroma.

Choos (658) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - DEC 2, 2003
2 December 2003 New 375ml bottle: Aroma was quite metallic with not much else. Black with hints of red/brown when swished up the sides of the glass, quickly diminishing head. Flavour was sweet, mildly roasty, mildly coffee and with a gentle roasty note and hop aftertaste. Highly carbonated. Older 345ml bottle: Aroma was a bit coffee like. Very black with brown highlights when swirled. Reasonably strong roasty notes with coffee, a hint of cocoa and strong hopy bitter aftertaste. Highly carbonated.

As far as stouts go, this is a cracker. Cascade are now into special and seasonal brews. This one is a tad heavy to start the night, but certainly a top finisher. If anything, a little too over the top in the coffee stakes, but with just the right levels of burnt malt and a slither of chocolate thrown in.

Jahills (151) - Cambridge (Hobart), AUSTRALIA - NOV 1, 2003
This is best stout i have tried, it is smooth, and is full of flavour, quite complex with a mix of flavours. A little coffee in perfectly roasted barley with a touch of bitterness at the finish. Nothing takes over this brew. Grab a pint wherever possible.
Earlier Rating: 10/24/2003 Total Score: 2.7
Smooth and grainy. Flavoursome, and rich. This beer is a good stout but not great like a james squire porter for example. Pretty one dimensional flavour, tastes like coffee but tastes like the malt has been roasted just right. just the right amount of body not to overwhelming but plenty there. If you like a sdtout give it a burl.
