"Not for the Timid" There is nothing traditional about Class V Stout. It is a sweet stout that is characterised by its dark chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt aromas and flavours. It has a higher alcohol content of 8%, so don"t let the smooth taste fool you; this beer is "Not for the Timid!"
Dark brown to black in colour. Sweet stouts come in three main varieties - milk stout, oatmeal stout, and foreign stout. Milk stouts are made with the addition of lactose, and are sweet, low-alcohol brews. Oatmeal lends a smooth fullness of body to stouts, while foreign stouts are stronger (6.5-8% abv) and have a sweet malt profile and high esters. All of the sweet stouts are noted for their restrained roastiness in comparison with other stouts, and low hop levels.
