Vladivostok (452) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2015
Less opaque than most stouts and similarly rather less roast with some caramel induced sweetness. Bitterness too was not particularly marked. I know that the head on cask beer is largely in the hands of the pourer but my heart sinks when I see a stout served up virtually lifeless with just the odd sudsy bubble to distinguish it from used engine oil. This was probably quite a decent beer but the presentation didn’t help its cause.

Taste comprises, dark toffee, roast malt, touch of pine and hops, slight burnt notes, liqourice, light chocolate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation leading to a slightly bitter and dry finish. A decent stout which crosses over into black IPA terrirory in some respects.
