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!

Bazal (16) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2009
Pours a dark, espresso brown with a fleeting tan head. The aroma is of sweetened coffee with a touch of chocolate. It feels good on the mouth, rich and not too carbonated with a slightly creamy aspect. Tastes of roasted coffee, with a slightly sweet finish. Could do with a little bitterness, but otherwise a very tasty beer

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown! / Waikato, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 7, 2009
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and dark fruit. The flavour is roasted malt, coffee, fruit and cocoa. This is surprisingly good, though the mouthfeel is a letdown with a thin body and low bitterness in the finish.

mkel07 (3339) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2009
330ml bottle. Poured a thick syrupy midnight black with a modest dense tan head that sits atop the beer with floating bubbles. Burnt coffee and chocolate notes with an underlying hint of roasted nuts. Mild aroma for a stout . Strong robust flavour of toffee and chocolate. It hits the back of your throat like coiugh mixture and the flavour sits on your tongue and slowly dissolves.

Ungstrup (29224) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2009
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thick brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of chocolate, caramel, and Cascade hops. The flavor is sweet matly with primary notes of chocolate. The body is thin. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2009
...bottle. For Cascade, this was impressive. Nice chocolate notes, deep brown color, good roasted qualities, and it tastes like an actual stout. I was surprised.

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 5, 2009
Pours almost pitch black with ruby edges. Almost black coffee colour head. Milk chocolate aromas little bit yeasty, caramel, roast malt and some hops there too. Smells like a stout should! On the flavour initially you are hit with some strong chocolaty bitterness, a subtle malty sweetness prevents it from becoming too much. Full of bitter roast malt coffee flavour, smooth vanilla notes and subtle nuttyness. The finish is long, chocolaty and dry. A real surprise for me – one of the best Stouts I’ve had and you can buy it in a 6 pack!

Poured from 750 ml bottle ’’Cascade Export Stout’’, awesome geezer label. Very dark brown, almost opaque, with lacing tan head. Nutty aroma. Nutty, chocolate flavour with pleasing astringency from roast malts and hop bitterness. Hints of fudge and coffee. A medium thick mouthfeel. A local favourite in certain quarters, and a good Tasmanian default for cooler weather.

This beer is funny for a couple of reasons. The brewers have gone from 375ml (traditional australian size) bottle to the european 330ml size, but strangely the price didn’t go down! hmmm, curious-er and curious-er. The other is they feel compelled to explain to the consumer what a stout is on the bottle. The beer, coincidentally, is rather good. Thick tan head on a deep, syrup black draught. Smells of coffee beans and smoke and vegemite and stock cubes. Tastes included oats in molasses, some nuttiness and dark chocolate.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 2, 2008
Bottle (in NZ), pours a dark brown with a brown bubbly head. A lot of coffee in the roasted malt aroma. Coffee again in the malty palate, and chocolate - though the mouthfeel is a little thin (especially for 5.8%) and some metalicness. Not bads though.
