Brilliant mahogany color. Curious, citrusy aromas and flavors of blood orange juice, sassafras, toffee, and raspberry preserves with a supple, bright, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, appealing, cheery finish displaying notes of spiced fruits, peppered greens, and gingerbread finish. A pleasant spiced holiday porter.

Flavored porters are brown to dark brown and average between 5.5-8.5% 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: Caldera Mogli Imperial Porter, Kona Pipeline Porter and Rogue Mocha Porter.
