Around The World In 80 Beers episode 169: Cascade Stout

Cascade Stout

Pours an opaque black with very little head. (That could be my fault.)

First Sip: Dark roasted malts and burnt toffee, mostly. Very faint, brief taste of citrus on the swallow, followed by a mild bitterness. Mild carbonation tingle on the tongue. Mouth-feel is thin but not watery. The malt becomes a little more noticeable as the glass warms.

This is nice and quite drinkable, but it's a bit boring. It doesn't have the heavy malts and buckets of flavour you expect from a stout. In fact, it reminded me more of Toohey's Old than a stout. While I like this beer, it just doesn't have It.
