Nearly opaque medium brown color. Aromas and flavors of toasted nuts and dark bread, hint of mexican chocolate, and whiff of caramelized carrot and plantain with a satiny, bright, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a sleek, medium-length finish that presents suggestions of peppered nuts and greens and sprouts finish. A solid, savory stout with nice table appeal.

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.
