Ebony color. Roasted aromas of char-roasted coffee beans, frosted Danish, hazelnut spread, and genache with a satiny, crisp, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and an interesting, medium-length pine resin finish. A rich and toasty coffee stout to buzz about.

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.
