Date Tasted:

Alcohol: 10%
Opaque dark brown color. Fruity aromas of spicy cherry butter on toast, waxy honeycomb, and hint of glue with a supple, bright, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, medium-length warm rubber and Styrofoam, chocolate, and latte finish. Nice cherry notes, here but the rubbery phenolics detract.

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.
