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!

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.

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.

...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.

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 (2335) - 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.

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.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle (375ml). Poured dark brown with a thick, fluffy, tanned head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of toasted malts with sweet milk chocolate, black coffee, caramel, sultanas and hints of licorice. Flavor was smooth with roasted malts, sweet caramel, milk chocolate, raisins, some notes toast and a dry, nutty/coffee-like finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, a thickish texture, smooth/creamy mouthfeel and a decent finish.
