Deschutes Brewery NA Irish Style Dark
What the brewers say
"A non-alcoholic Irish Stout with notes of rich chocolate & roast malts."
What our panel thought
“Comes across like a tropical foreign stout—almost peanut-butter creaminess in the nose, very light on the roast character, with dry toast and a coffee-like finish. No hops. Very light, to the point of being watery. Finish is dry, fairly clean, but bland. Light chocolate and nondescript bitterness.”
What our editors thought
“Light chocolate and a woody note on the nose, with a bit of ashy roast. In the sip, light and a touch watery, with a muddled malt character that mixes up light vegetal with light roast and a bit of acidic bite.”
