Dark brown black color. Roasted, smoky aromas of dark roasted coffee and fine cigar ash and wrapper with a supple, vibrant, effervescent, medium body and a tingling, interesting, medium-long baking chocolate, smoked nuts, and fireplace finish. A rich and purely flavored coffee stout with attractive smokiness; try with cigars.

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.
