Murky nearly opaque medium brown color. Curious aromas and flavors of chocolate pudding, edamame, vanilla cinnamon toffee, and dark roasted sweet potato with a round, bright, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a tingling, interesting, relaxed finish with notes of carob coated grains and root vegetables, spelt bread, arugula, and pencil shavings finish. A curious spicy stout for the table.

Sweet stouts are brown to black in color and range from 4-6% in alcohol. They have a distinctive malt sweetness and often show chocolate and caramel flavors. Milk and cream stouts are the more common examples of this style. These beers obtain their character from chocolate malts and lactic (milk) sugars used in the brewing process. Sweet stouts originated as a British specialty but are now available all around the world. Noteworthy examples of this style include: St. Peter’s Cream Stout, Left Hand Milk Stout and Samuel Adams Cream Stout.
