Brewer's description

Kehrwieder Kreativbrauerei Road Runner Coffee Stout alcohol-free is the perfect fusion of non-alcoholic beer and coffee, with beans directly from the coffee farmers and roasted in Hamburg. You have a long night ahead of you and want to keep a clear head? The Road Runner is stingy on alcohol, but not on caffeine.

Dry/ish review

Big Drop Arctic Beach Coconut Stout is a pleasant enough non alcoholic stout. Subtle but distinct aroma and taste of coconut complements the main other element of the non alcoholic stout, the malts nicely, alongside hints of chocolate in the background. However like many non alcoholic stouts is a little thin and it lacks the velvety feel of an alcoholic version (despite its claims) and feels slightly over carbonated on the tongue. Fun and definitely worth trying

Brewer's description

This pours like black silk. The soft and smooth aroma of vanilla seductively combines with a decadent chocolate flavour — all perfectly balanced with dark cherry undertones, reminiscent of Black Forest Gateau. This is a beer to take your time over.

Dry/ish review

Nittenauer Lola Coffee Porter as might be expected has an aroma of malt and coffee. Sweet malts and caramel are definitely at the fore when tasting it, along with a definite backdrop of coffee that emerges more fully in the aftertaste and lingers. Nittenauer Lola is light bodied, maybe a little thin and perhaps a touch over carbonated. In general Dryish is not a big fan of Porters, but if you enjoy the style you’ll probably enjoy this. One thing to note is that it is quite high in calories.

Dry/ish review

A difficult beer for the casual drinker to enjoy, perhaps. Technically accomplished brewing, undoubtedly, but unfortunately milk stout is not a style of beer I particularly enjoy. For me this beer has a slightly one dimensional palate of tastes, dominated by a malty, chocolate-y sweetness accompanied by an unexpected and not altogether pleasant smokiness. It lacks the depth and thickness of a conventional alcoholic stout. In contrast to the beer’s taste, the aftertaste is unexpectedly. However, other reviewers rate this beer highly.
