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!

yespr (40811) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 17, 2008
37.5 cL bottle, doesn’t seem be easily placed under any of the two other Cascade stouts despite the same ABV. Pours dark brown with a lacing tan head. Malt and chocolate aroma. Flavour is mild roasted. Medium sweet and roasted malt with a nicd chocolate note lingering into the finish. Light roasted and bitter finish.

375ml Bottle, BB 29MAY08. I’m suprised this is still in date, its been in the fridge for at least a year! It establishes itself as just Cascade Stout on the label, but i’m assuming its the right one. Opaque black body with a thick tan collar. Dark roast coffee with milk on the nose, an underlying burnt woody note and touch of liquorice. Particularly dense body, oily texture, and a mild carbonation suggesting more than the abv is, a decent bitterness manifests itself early on until the finish. Strong milky coffee is what I get straight-up, bitter chocolate certainly, pronounced burnt grains and woodiness, has a salty liquorice element in there too. Finishes with a slight lactic sharpness, reasonably bitter, yet satisfying. A particularly tasty Aussie stout, at a decent price too!

Bottle -- Deep, impenetrable black with small tan head with not much retention but good lacing. Extremely pronounced coffee aroma with chocolate. Medium mouthfeel. Flavour is much the same as the aroma. Very nice.

This is a great little stout,good dark pour though not completly black.Head good light brown colour.Aroma very choclatey and nice roasted hops.The flavour is more chocolate than anything else,gritty but their is a taste of mollasses and caramel.The bitter in the roasting at the finish which is a lovely freshness and sweetness,very nice.

Arassuil (13) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2007
Found this at the local bottleshop, and was pleased with its contents. It poured opaque black in the glass leaving just a whisp of a tan head. The smooth heavily flavoured front end balanced well with its slight bitter aftertaste, and it went down easy.

Earlier Rating: 7/30/2007 Total Score: 3.1
Opaque dark black in colour with a thin tan head. Thin to medium bodied with average carbonation. Fizzy mouthfeel and a little watery. Roast and sweet malty flavours with a little coffee coming through, more so in the aftertaste. Would have been nicer if it had a little more bitterness and wasn’t so watery. It only had a lightly bitter finish. Bottle labelled "Cascade Stout" with no mention of "Special". - 375ml brown glass bottle.
