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!

Pours a nice black, typical stout aroma’s of coffee, roasted malts and a roasty nuttiness. Taste. Mainly espresso coffee, and a slight dark chocolate flavour accompanied with a pleasant bitterness throughout. Overall. This beer just rates slightly above the crowd and is good for the price.

Westkyoto77 (623) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 28, 2016
On tap at Cascade. Poured a jet black with a thin, short-lived tan head. Tasted very bitter after a sweet cider. But was moreish, with interesting flavours of chocolate and dark fruit. Thin. Nice flavours, though; would have again.

Cola coloured with a medium tan head. Cocoa and coffee aromas, a little bit of leather. Dark chocolate, coffee and molasses flavours - better than I expected to be honest. Medium to thick body, creamy mouthfeel. Not bad.

A little thin, but a solid stout, very chocolaty. An example of the style, with no fuss.

mrjez (479) - Osaka, JAPAN - OCT 15, 2015
Very mild for a foreign stout. Flavours of roasted malt, nutty, a little chocolate sweetness, but all quite thin and fleeting. Nothing dominates the palate and the aroma is quite subdued.

Malrider69 (141) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2015
Pours black with a thin, but long-lasting creamy, brown head that is excellent in appearance. The aroma is of coffee and roasted malt with flavour also being of roasted malt with a mild bitterness that is short lasting on the palate. This stout is OK, but appearances can be deceptive and it is lacking in complexity.
