Opaque ebony color. Attractive, creamy aromas and flavors of coconut cake with vanilla buttercream, s’mores, salted caramel, and ruby port with a creamy, bright, finely carbonated, fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, complex, very long finish evoking accents of caramelized nuts, fruitcake, delicate spices, and sweet pipe tobacco finish. A fantastically decadent and flavorful vanilla stout of the highest order.

Flavored stouts are brown to dark brown and average between 6.5-8.5% in alcohol with variations depending on the interpretation of the style. They can be sweet or dry and commonly derive their flavor from dark fruits, coffee, and chocolate added during the brewing process in addition to the standard malt, hops, yeast and water. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Rogue Double Chocolate Stout, Young’s Double Chocolate Stout and New Glarus Coffee Stout.
