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!

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2011 Pored from the bottle, nice chocolate aroma with rosted nuts, flavour is the same with some bitternes, nice thick mouthfeel with low carbonation, and a dark black colour with short beige head, will definitely enjoy this beer again.

tom_clift (44) - Carnegie, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2010
Keg at brewery. Deep coffee flavour and aroma. Head short lived. Thick mouthfeel. Very enjoyable in small amounts, but not a session beer - roasty flavours could get harsh after a bit.

vanDahl (9) - Churchill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2010 does not count
Bottle. Dark brown pour with tinges or red. Creamy light tan head that quickly settles on top. Complex lacing. An aroma of roasted coffee and toffee. Thick and rich on the tongue. Roasted caramel and chocolate/toffee notes fading to a delicious noninvasive bitterness that lingers.

bman1986 (173) - Broadstairs, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2010
Thick, rich and creamy stout. This was a lot better than I expected and actually a pleasure to drink. Chocolate and roasted malt dominate and that’s how it should be in a stout. Give it a go, it may surprise you.

bmeup (499) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - APR 21, 2010
Bottle. Yep it’s black, with thin lasting head. Choc coffee sweet malt and a very slight herbal hop. Smooth thin and gentle. Quite mellow & thin and not the depth of some.

Mjollnir (384) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2010
330mL bottle. Pours opaque black with a thin head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma of roast, dark chocolate and some coffee. Some hops on the flavour, but pretty subdued overall with only a little roast and bitterness. Light-medium bodied, average carbonation with a bitter finish.

davidm (1926) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 20, 2010
Bottle 330ml. Great beer! Aromas of dark fruit, and roasted coffee. Taste is sweet, with a long-lasting bitter finish. Palate is silky, and medium bodied. Black, with a thin off-white head.

Oakes (11779) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 5, 2010
@ Southern Barbarian, Shanghai. Very dark brown colour with a thin head. Chewy, rich, fruity, treacly aroma. Chocolatey palate. Fairly full body. Soft and smooth. Moderate sweetness. Complex fudgey brew. Gets a little bit thin at the end. Pretty good beer that blurs the stout/foreign stout line.

jonno (2129) - JAPAN - JAN 29, 2010
Looks decent - dark black tho the head is a bit pale for the style. Nose is light chocolate and further sweetness. In the mouth it has a macro taste, almost too refined with hints of toffee, chocolate and coffee beans.
