Fatty Appleton, a colourful brewery worker, was known for his ability to carry 2 Firkin barrels under his arms (yes, theyíre known as Firkins). Itís a skill that would work as ícrowd controlí 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!

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 thatís how it should be in a stout. Give it a go, it may surprise you.

bmeup (588) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - APR 21, 2010
Bottle. Yep itís 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 (392) - 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.

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 (13966) - 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 (2345) - 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.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2010
Bottle. Thick black with small but attractive head. Fruity pomegranate and chocolate and coffee aroma is promising. Tastes different, much dryer. Has a cocoa powder blast. losing the fruitiness, denying the suggestion of acidity. Mellows to a very easy, good stout.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle. Pours jet black with a short tan head that doesnít last long. Aroma is very roasty with notes of mocha, nuts and caramel. Flavour is just as roasty but doesnít have the same amount of sweetness with dark chocolate, coffee and nuts standing out. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, yet fairly light, with minimal carbonation and a medium to short mildly bitter finish. Thereís not really anything wrong with this brew but there are a lot of other better ones in the same style for the same price in most local shops.

floydian1 (1250) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 21, 2009
330ml bottle. Pours matt black with a thin beige head. Dark chocolate aromas predominate with a hint of roasted nuts. Palate is chewy and smooth with a bittersweet roasted dark malt flavour and a gentle bitter hop finish. A pretty good stout from Cascade.

hawthorne00 (3051) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2013 Pours dark brown with a head that settles to small and tan. Thereís nutty, roasty and chocolate aromas and something kind of unpleasant there too - burnt metal, I suppose. Itís a bit thin but nicely carbonated - a bit hollow-bodied. Slightly chewy mild bitter finish. Itís OK, but Iím again struck by the lack of oomph and ambition from Cascade. [2.7]

As Export Stout. Perhaps a little fresher, pleasntly chocolaty aroma with some weedy herbs and chicory. Choc and nuts, bitterness is balancing, some metal. OK.
