Ebony color. Fruity aromas of dried blueberry, chocolate-orange, fresh flapjacks, and spiced tea with a chewy, bright, effervescent, very sweet light-to-medium body and a tingling, medium-length apple compote, blackberry, charred nuts, spiced pears, and tres leches cake finish. A toasty, fruit-forward stout with a sweet sensibility.

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.
