Dark walnut color. Aromas of chocolate covered raspberries, cedar shavings, and mint tea with a satiny, crisp, effervescent, moderately sweet medium body and an even, intriguing, medium-length fruit punch, grape soda, chocolate covered espresso bean, and acai finish. A sweet, berry inflected stout to serve well-chilled.

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.
