Dark opaque walnut color. Aromas of coffee with cream, dried jerky, Tootsie roll, and roasted cherry with a creamy, soft, spritzy, moderately sweet medium-to-full body and a graceful, charming, medium-length cola nut, balsamic reduction, peanut shell, and smoked maple syrup finish. A lively and engaging lightly flavored stout that lets the beer do the talking.

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.
