Opaque dark brown color. Aromas and flavors of spiced dried peaches, mild coffee, playdoh, and panettone with a supple, crisp, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an even, delightful, medium-length finish that presents notes of cappuccino and roasted nut finish. A nice mellow coffee 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.
