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!

Flavour is mild roasted. Medium sweet and roasted malt with a nicd chocolate note lingering into the finish. Light roasted and bitter finish.

omhper (19705) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2005
Draught at Irish Murphy, Ballarat. Black, average beige head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Light-medium bodied with some molasses and somewhat raw mouthfeel. Short grassy finish. The Export stout felt more mature and refined
Earlier Rating: 6/10/2005 Total Score: 3.4
Bottled (at AIBA 2005). Very black. Tarry licorice aroma. Sweet and rich on coffee. The coffee just lingers on, passing the somewhat syrupy mouthfeel into the finish where it overpowers the bitterness. One dimensional, and perhaps with simplistic malt character, but after 28 hours on airplanes and umpteen beers at the festival I sure do appreciate the coffee in this beer :-)

Oakes (12743) - 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.

Bottle. Black colour with a nice light brown long lasting head. Aroma of well roasted malts and some coffee. Great creamy mouth feel! Lovely roasty malty flavour, little bitter-chocolate, coffee and a nice dry finish. Long aftertaste. Great brew!!!

Sammy (8774) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2005
Black with lace in glass. Appropriate carbonation and medium mouthfeel. More bitterness than roast, some coffee, caramel malt and syruppy sweetness chunk in the middle. Bittersweet finish. Drinkable reasonable stout.Thanks DouglasD for bringing back.
