Opaque dark brown color. Aromas and flavors of caramelized apples and peaches and melted toffee with a supple, bright, effervescent, dryish medium body and a smooth, brisk finish with notes of roasted nuts finish. A pleasant and quaffable, but the flavor could be better defined.

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.
