Drink review – Hammerton Brewery has crafted an innovative and tasty drinking experience with their non-alcoholic Fudge City stout. Its rich, chocolatey flavor profile, velvety texture, and impeccable balance make it a standout choice for those seeking a non-alcoholic alternative that doesn’t compromise on taste.

I seem to get suckered into interesting-sounding drinks so when I came across this alcohol-free chocolate fudge cake stout by Hammertons I had to give it a try. It’s only been a few weeks since I tried Hammerton’s non-alcoholic Peanut butter milk stout which I scored well so I had relatively high expectations for this stout.

UK brewery Hammerton’s has created several fascinating beers including this chocolate stout called FUDGE CITY, which aims to balance the comforting flavours of coffee and chocolate with fudge and caramel aromas.

So the question you are probably wondering is –  does this have any resemblance to a decadent chocolate fudge cake? Well, you’ll just need to read my review below to find out.

Is Fudge City Stout Any Good?


Ok let’s face it, it was always going to be a hard ask to replicate a chocolate fudge cake but you know what Fudgre City is a very good attempt. On the first sip, you get an initial rush of chocolatey goodness akin to biting into a slice of moist fudge cake. It’s like drinking a classic dark malty stout but with notes of coffee and toffee. Don’t panic though, the sweetness from the chocolate and caramel notes is expertly tempered by a gentle bitterness that emerges towards the finish. 

Aroma & Appearance

Chocolate, malt and toffee are all aromas that hit you the instant you open up a can of Fudge City. As you can see in the picture, it pours with the classic dark stout blackness and maintains a nice frothy head as you drink it.
