Nearly opaque brown black color. Roasted, spicy aromas of dark roasted jalapeños, caramelized nuts, chocolate berries and cake dough, and birch beer with a supple, tangy, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a tingling, appealing, medium-long cappuccino with caramel and fruit syrups and green peppers finish. An intriguingly peppery coffee stout for the table.

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.
