Not bad for an NA Stout
Really tough task to brew a full bodied and flavoured NA stout, I have to say, but this is a pretty decent effort. On the flavour front, I get dark chocolate/coffee bitterness, a canned beans kind of taste, toasted grain and smokiness. It is a little thin and lacking on the body and mouthfeel side of things, and missing some of those sweeter, caramel notes that stouts typically have. Head quite course and barely lasts. But overall, OK.
I was a big stout/porter/IPA drinker, I like my beer strong in flavour, this compares with coopers extra stout which I drank, very roasty, smokey, chocolatey and a hint of coffee, mouthfeel is a tiny bit thin though, not enough for me to go any lower than 5 stars. Excellent work to Upflow!!!
More of a brown ale
I was excited to try a new non-alcoholic stout however was disappointed to find it tasted more like a brown ale than a stout. It had a malt flavour but lacked the multi-layered flavours like coffee and chocolate that I usually expect in a stout.
