Opaque dark brown black color. Rich, inviting aromas and flavors of cappuccino gelato and toffee with a silky, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a smooth, elegant, medium-long finish manifesting notes of artisanal mocha, nuts, and watercress. A fantastically flavorful and balanced coffee stout that gets it just right.

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.
