The Guinness with everything except the alcohol. Guinness 0.0 boasts the same beautifully smooth taste, perfectly balanced flavour, and unique dark color of Guinness, just without the alcohol.
To create Guinness 0.0 the St James’s Gate brewers, start by brewing Guinness exactly as they always have, using the same natural ingredients; water, barley, hops, and yeast; before gently removing the alcohol through a cold filtration method. The cold filtration process allows the alcohol to be filtered out without presenting thermal stress to the beer, protecting the integrity of its taste and character. The brewers then carefully blend and balance the flavours to ensure the distinctive flavour profile and taste characteristics of Guinness.
The resulting product is a stout that is unmistakably Guinness, just without the alcohol, featuring the same dark, ruby red liquid and creamy head, hints of chocolate and coffee, smoothly balanced with bitter, sweet and roasted notes.

The journey to launching Guinness 0.0 has drawn on Guinness’s proud 261-year history of innovation and brewing brilliance dating from 1759. A commitment to retaining the distinct character and taste of Guinness was central to the four-year process led by the technical and innovation teams at St. James’s Gate, the Home of Guinness.
Hard to tell the difference between it a Guinness with alcohol. I’ve done a side comparison at St James Gate. They have really nail it!!
Pretty darn close to original
Taste is very close to the alcoholic version.
Overall not bad, did feel it was slightly missing body and the mouth feel akin to alcohol version.
Guinness 0.0 stout requires the patience of the slow pour to fully realize the great taste. Add 2/3rds of the can to a glass and wait 10 minutes before adding the rest. Sit back and then enjoy. Anticipation makes this Stout a true pleasure.
