Dark walnut color. Fruity aromas of chocolate chip-studded banana bread, bubble gum, candied peach, and cracked pepper with a bright, spritzy, fruity sweet medium-to-full body and a warming, medium-length black toast and greek yogurt finish. A fruity yet heavy stout that offers an interesting mashup of flavors.

Sweet stouts are brown to black in color and range from 4-6% in alcohol. They have a distinctive malt sweetness and often show chocolate and caramel flavors. Milk and cream stouts are the more common examples of this style. These beers obtain their character from chocolate malts and lactic (milk) sugars used in the brewing process. Sweet stouts originated as a British specialty but are now available all around the world. Noteworthy examples of this style include: St. Peter’s Cream Stout, Left Hand Milk Stout and Samuel Adams Cream Stout.
