3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

...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.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle -- Deep, dark black colour with small tan head with not much retention. I had a great time drinking 6 bottles of these. They all went down smooth, each one smoother than the last.

Looks great with a creamy, coffe coloured head. Roast, coffee flavours with a nice mouth-feel. A good ’commercial’ example of a stout.
