Opaque dark brown color. Spicy, exotic aromas of floral incense, Moroccan spice cake, Turkish cola, and spicy roasted carrots and yams with a round, tangy, fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, massive, very long spiced Turkish coffee and chai, gingerbread, and menthol tobacco finish. An intriguing and exotically spicy Turkish bazaar of a flavored stout.

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.
