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!

Davros (2460) - 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 (1226) - 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.

jrallen34 (3500) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2011
bottle drank from a tulip... dark brown with a light tan head, the head rises and stays at two fingers for awhile, but its very ugly big bubbles a watery... the aroma is roasted chocolate, fresh cocoa powder notes, a touch of alcohol and a bit generic, but decent... the semi nice things that were present on the nose do not show through on the taste, very light in taste and mouthfeel, watery, a little coffee only a hint of roast... not a fan

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.
