Brown color. Attractive aromas and flavors of creme brulee, toasted fruit cake, and toffee with a satiny, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long finish with touches of sprouts and cocoa finish. A round and even stout with a pleasing fruitiness and great sessionability.

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.
