Dark dark brown color. Aromas and flavors of chocolate custard and cake, mexican hot chocolate, and cherry pipe tobacco with a silky, bright, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, easy finish manifesting notes of chocolate nuts and dried fruits and lettuce finish. A nice, creamy chocolatey stout that is very sessionable.

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.
