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!

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.

Malrider69 (107) - 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.

TedE (586) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 3, 2015
375ml bottle into pint glass. Chocolatey boozy nose. Black beer with no light penetration, tan head. Quite a lot of carbonation. Light bodied, first taste is spritzy and bitter then milk chocolate. Finish is lingering dark chocolate/cocoa. Really nice. Australia has some great stouts but no-one seems to drink them.

Simmo (27) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2014
This beer hits and misses in equal measure. It smells and tastes lovely with toffee and dark chocolate being most prominent and a pleasant bitterness with a little coffee flavour at the end. It pours like cola, a lovely near black colour with a dark tan head that fades almost instantly. It had way too much carbonation however and it feels like lager in the mouth.

This is the first time to try this beer. It has barnyard aroma, black appearance, light bitter taste, and sticky texture. Overall, this beer is not for me.........
