Nitro Coffee Stout

Category: Flavored Stout

Date Tasted:
Country: USA
Alcohol: 5.8%
Opaque brown black color. Attractive, roasted aromas and flavors of cocoa powder, dark roasted nuts, and black coffee with a supple, flat, spritzy, dryish light-to-medium body and a smooth, quirky, quick finish revealing notes of latte and white chocolate nut fudge finish. A very soft, dry, coffee accented stout.

Flavored Stout

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.
