Jet Black with ruby highlight. A moderate coffee aroma with slight dark chocolate and cocoa note. A slight touch of earthy hop aromatics and raisin like Esters.
The American innovation has done wonders with this style adding coffee, chocolate and oatmeal flavors and aromas to the creamy roasty attributes inherent in a stout. Barrel aging in whiskey barrels or lots of hops are just some of the variations you can explore. Not necessarily higher in alcohol these beers are all about texture, richness, creaminess and full flavor for an even fuller experience. Moderate to very high roasted malt flavors, often tasting of coffee, roasted coffee beans, dark or bittersweet chocolate. May have the flavor of slightly burnt coffee grounds, but this character should not be prominent. Low to medium malt sweetness, often with rich chocolate or caramel flavors. Medium to high bitterness. Low to high hop flavor, generally citrusy or resiny. Low to no esters. Medium to dry finish, occasionally with a lightly burnt quality. Alcohol flavors can be present up to medium levels, but smooth.
