Tasting Notes: This stout pours a deep brown with warm, walnut highlights topped by a tall, tan cap of foam. It looks the part, and it smells the part too: picture cracking a fresh bag of medium-roast coffee with dark berry and plum notes. The medium-light, bubbly body boasts notes of coffee, smoke and a long, dry cacao-nib note in the finish.
Food Pairing: Try this stout with any grilled meat or veg — kabobs would work. Roast dinners and stews make easy companions. Finish off a meal with a mild blue cheese and see how it contrasts with the roasty edge of the stout.
Verdict: Finally, a non-alcoholic stout that actually delivers! From the roasty, coffee-like sip, medium, bubbly body and full flavour from start to finish, it’s time to add this beauty into your rotation.
