Looks decent - dark black tho the head is a bit pale for the style. Nose is light chocolate and further sweetness. In the mouth it has a macro taste, almost too refined with hints of toffee, chocolate and coffee beans. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2010
Bottle. Thick black with small but attractive head. Fruity pomegranate and chocolate and coffee aroma is promising. Tastes different, much dryer. Has a cocoa powder blast. losing the fruitiness, denying the suggestion of acidity. Mellows to a very easy, good stout. BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle. Pours jet black with a short tan head that doesn’t last long. Aroma is very roasty with notes of mocha, nuts and caramel. Flavour is just as roasty but doesn’t have the same amount of sweetness with dark chocolate, coffee and nuts standing out. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy, yet fairly light, with minimal carbonation and a medium to short mildly bitter finish. There’s not really anything wrong with this brew but there are a lot of other better ones in the same style for the same price in most local shops. floydian1 (1464) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 21, 2009
330ml bottle. Pours matt black with a thin beige head. Dark chocolate aromas predominate with a hint of roasted nuts. Palate is chewy and smooth with a bittersweet roasted dark malt flavour and a gentle bitter hop finish. A pretty good stout from Cascade. hawthorne00 (3953) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2017 Pours dark brown with a head that settles to small and tan. There’s nutty, roasty and chocolate aromas and something kind of unpleasant there too - burnt metal, I suppose. It’s a bit thin but nicely carbonated - a bit hollow-bodied. Slightly chewy mild bitter finish. It’s OK, but I’m again struck by the lack of oomph and ambition from Cascade. [2.7]

As Export Stout. Perhaps a little fresher, pleasantly chocolaty aroma with some weedy herbs and chicory. Choc and nuts, bitterness is balancing, some metal. OK. [2.8]
And again, colder. Chocolate, some licorice, weeds. Yeah, OK.
Dark black in colour with rich coffee/mocha aroma. Medium bodied with roasted and coffee flavours and a dry finish. A good beer, nice easy drinking stout. Dervock (1347) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 7, 2009
Bottle - pours black with a tan head. coffee and chocolate aromas. Lovely expresso flavour, nice bitter finish. mickmac (486) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - AUG 4, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a small-spare head over a clear black body. Expresso like aroma and a coffee-chocolate-mocha taste with complimentary hop tastes. Nice. Bazal (16) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2009
Pours a dark, espresso brown with a fleeting tan head. The aroma is of sweetened coffee with a touch of chocolate. It feels good on the mouth, rich and not too carbonated with a slightly creamy aspect. Tastes of roasted coffee, with a slightly sweet finish. Could do with a little bitterness, but otherwise a very tasty beer NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2009
Had this one during my holiday in Australia april/may 2009. Black colored brew. Chocolate, malty, metallic aroma. Chocolate, malty, smooth flavor.
