With notes of coffee, cocoa nibs and a lingering hint of sweet vanilla this beer is dark, rich and indulgent. We keep ours in the fridge but take it out about an hour or so before we drink it as all that decadence needs a bit of warming up. We pour it fast into a tulip glass so the gorgeous coffee aromas can stretch their legs. If it’s early in the evening, an oyster or two sets it off nicely. If it’s later, a chocolate fondant rounds off this truly extravagant beer.
Gluten Free Explained
Gluten is a protein compound found most commonly in the grains wheat, barley, rye and oats. Wheat and barley are often key ingredients in producing drinks such as beer and in sealing wine casks. Gluten free drinks avoid using such products. To label as gluten free the product must have below 20 parts per million of gluten, which is barley a trace!

Since I stopped drinking I have mounted a quest to find drinks to replace my favourites. I associate a stout with cold autumnal days in the pub in front of a fire and to date I have not managed to find a replacement for the pint of Guinness I would normally be supping - until now. This is great much nicer than all the alternatives I have tried which I have found too sweet and too much like liquid chocolate. This has a nice refreshing taste to it with a balanced flavour and it is bitter enough so you don't feel like you are drinking cold hot chocolate. I will definitely be adding this to my regular drinks and when the six nations comes around I suspect this will be heavily consumed!
Simply a great stout, lots of flavour (chocolate and coffee) and depth. You very quickly forget this is only 0.5%. I've been looking for good low alcohol beers for ages and tried this and their Pale Ale, both are really good.
