Jump Ship is a small Scottish alcohol-free specialist brewery who are known for excellent-tasting beers. So far, they have brought us a lager, a pale ale, an IPA, and now a stout.

The can continues their theme of nautical signal flags, and on this one we have the flags that represent the letters O, M and S: for Oat Milk Stout. It’s great to have a nice theme like this across all the cans, and this one is particularly eye-catching with the bright yellow and red of the O flag on the black can.

The beer itself pours a very dark black-brown colour but is missing any sort of head. (Jump Ship say they are working on improving this on the next batch). There’s lots of chocolate in the aroma and a slight hint of coffee. The drink has a really smooth mouthfeel about it. Chocolate is the main flavour I get, with a roasted finish which leaves a nice bitter aftertaste.

By using oat milk, Jump Ship have managed to keep lactose out of the beer and keep it vegan. It is also gluten-free. I really enjoyed this stout, and I’d say that it’s one of the best alcohol-free stouts on the market.
