A small brand with a big following, Vita Stout is renowed for its stout like qualities and batch brewing. A 4% alcohol beer, Vita Stout is made with rich dark malts and roasted barley. Stouts have long been associated with good health and vigour and Vita Stout is no exception. Available only in 330ml bottles, Vita Stout is the perfect pick-me-up.

Stout lite maybe. Pours dark with little head. Aroma toasted malt and no hop, tastes like it smells, but sweeter, quite sickly. On the positive side, does not have the DB brewed in five minutes ether finish.

Excellent stout for its price. Full flavoured, good long lasting head, clean, crisp and great dark appearance. The best.

Low carbonation, very dark brown. Low roast flavor, slight crystal flavor. Sweet and sour finish.

Tasted 15/02/2005. 330ml stubbie from Tupelo. Pour an inky brown-black with tan lacing but little head (though the dodgy dark bar makes it difficult to fairly judge colour). Slight roasted malt and toasted 5 grain bread aroma. The light and fairly effervescent mouthfeel holds a simple sweet roasted malt flavour with liquorice and medium bitterness. Palate is reasonably clean - slightly bittersweet with some residual aniseed from the liquorice flavour. Interesting kitsch label.

one dimensional licorice allsort/milko sweetness. a bit of a fossil it seems. pretty cool disingenuous marketing.

A poor excuse for a stout. Incredibly sweet, syrupy, and cloying with not even a hint of roasted malt flavours.
