Ebony color. Aromas and flavors of roasted nuts and coconuts, chocolate fondue, caramel yogurt, and hint of paper mache with a satiny, bright, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, appealing, medium-long finish displaying notes of strong coffee with cream and sugar, toasty apple-peach tart, and radish sprouts finish. A nice toasty stout with a fun mix of coffee and fruit flavors.

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.
