UPDATED: FEB 16, 2011 Pored from the bottle, nice chocolate aroma with rosted nuts, flavour is the same with some bitternes, nice thick mouthfeel with low carbonation, and a dark black colour with short beige head, will definitely enjoy this beer again. tom_clift (44) - Carnegie, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2010
Keg at brewery. Deep coffee flavour and aroma. Head short lived. Thick mouthfeel. Very enjoyable in small amounts, but not a session beer - roasty flavours could get harsh after a bit. vanDahl (9) - Churchill, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2010 does not count
Bottle. Dark brown pour with tinges or red. Creamy light tan head that quickly settles on top. Complex lacing. An aroma of roasted coffee and toffee. Thick and rich on the tongue. Roasted caramel and chocolate/toffee notes fading to a delicious noninvasive bitterness that lingers.

Thick, rich and creamy stout. This was a lot better than I expected and actually a pleasure to drink. Chocolate and roasted malt dominate and that’s how it should be in a stout. Give it a go, it may surprise you. bmeup (679) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - APR 21, 2010
Bottle. Yep it’s black, with thin lasting head. Choc coffee sweet malt and a very slight herbal hop. Smooth thin and gentle. Quite mellow & thin and not the depth of some. Mjollnir (404) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2010
330mL bottle. Pours opaque black with a thin head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma of roast, dark chocolate and some coffee. Some hops on the flavour, but pretty subdued overall with only a little roast and bitterness. Light-medium bodied, average carbonation with a bitter finish. davidm (2080) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 20, 2010

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2016 2015 side-by-side rates: Cascade Stout 5.8, 27.5 ibu
Dark brown with only slight red-purple highlights under light. Aroma is chocolatey, slight fruitiness, bit of molasses. Light chocolatey character, demerara dark sugars, just a light fruitiness. 4 7 6 3 14
Cascade Export Stout 5.8
Dark brown with only slight red-purple highlights under light. aroma is chocolatey, fudgey, bit if molasses but not as much fruitiness. Chocolatey but arguably sweeter, earthier, has a fuller body. 4 7 7 4 15
2010 rate: @ 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.
