Dark colour with white head. Roasted aroma, no coffee, more on the sweet side.

There should be more love for this stout. Obviously it’s not one of those stouts that is going to blow your mind or your head off, but it is superbly balanced, sessionable, and full of smooth roasted mocha flavours that combine well together. Great for summer. Well worth a shot

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
375 ml bottle. Pours dark with quickly fading tan head. Aroma o alcohol, toffee, caramel and lightly roasted coffee beans. Slightly acidic smooth very easy to drink dry stout with medium body. Sweet roasted malt aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2012 Poured an opague black colour with a thin beige head that dissapated quickly. Initail aroma of burnt barley that quickly went to a chocloate flavour. First taste was of burnt barley but this was quickly replaced by a subtle chocolate flavour. Medium to full bodied with a smooth and slightly sweet finish. Not a full on flavoured stout but quite nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fairly dark in colour with a skim of mocha head that seems to be slowly dissipating. Good chocolate and slightly roasty aromas are apparent. Lightish body and a flavour that trends toward burnt caramels with lovely sherbet-like mouthfeel. This is a bit of a dark horse in the stout world. When you think of Cascade you think as a larger brewer it’ll skimp on the flavour, but this is patently not the case. While this beer isn’t the most complicated stout I will ever drink, it is eminently sessionable and has a good spicy orange finish. Reasonable price and a tasty drop which I shall be returning to time and again (and I love stout). Well done.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Lighter style of stout. Subtle coffee notes and very little mouth feel make this an easy drinking beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2011 Bottle. Pours Black with decent tan head and lace. Aromas of Coffee bean, milk, mocha, tar, grassy and floral hop notes and a decent choc roasty note. Med body complex malt profile, generous carbonation - med-high. Decent hop flavor, balanced with a toasty note and malty body finishing up a touch light.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with almost no head.
Big roasty aroma with coffee and also some oatmeal shown.
Similarly roasty, grainy flavours, with a hint of rum-like booze in there. Pretty full on.
Could us more carbonation and a thicker body.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a 375ml bottle on 30/5/2011. Pours a very dark brown/black, with a head full of big bubbles. Has a modest aroma of coffee and chocolate. In the mouth, it starts out quite sweet and chocolatey and finishes with some roasted malt notes and a mild bitterness. The body is quite thin and watery. An unremarkable stout which just scrapes through with a pass mark.
