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!

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

Brodies_Best (263) - Auckland Central, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 20, 2012
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.

KeefOz (1181) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 27, 2012
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.

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.

Lighter style of stout. Subtle coffee notes and very little mouth feel make this an easy drinking beer.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2011
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.

Davros (2448) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2011
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.

Maris (1204) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2011
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.
