Ebony color. Aromas of roasted nuts, toasted Russian black bread, frosted spice cake, and fresh coffee with a velvety, vibrant, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and an even, compelling, medium-length creamy gelato, charred espresso bean, baking chocolate, and charred frisse finish. A bold, roasty, coffee-inflected beer with a silky texture; light enough to session.

This category is, practically speaking, a catchall for beers that don’t fit neatly in an existing category. Flavored lagers may be flavored with, or affected by, the addition of unusual ingredients including chocolate, coffee, chili peppers or even juniper. In addition, the base beer may be related to almost any classic beer style. Given the variation possible in this category, there are no established standards for appearance, aroma or flavor. Instead, beers in this category are defined by a pleasing combination of the beer’s elements and overall drinkability. Noteworthy examples of this style include: Samuel Adams Chocolate Bock, Stiegl Grapefruit Radler and Burleigh Black Giraffe Coffee Lager.
