Flavored - Other

The Spice / Herb / Other Flavored Beer is a catch-all style for an ale or a lager made with any of the following: Spices, Herbs, Nuts, Coffee, Vanilla, Chocolate, Coconut, Rhubarb. It’s an harmonious marriage of the additive and beer, but still recognizable as a beer. The additive character should be evident but in balance with the beer. Can range from pale to very dark depending on the underlying style (often not mentioned), and can be influenced by the color of added additive. The common or culinary definitions of the additive is used, not botanical or scientific ones. In general, spices are the Dried Seeds, Seed Pods, Roots or Bark of plants used for flavoring food. Herbs are leafy plants or parts of plants such as Leaves, Flowers, Petals, Stalks used for flavoring foods. Note that some beer styles have their own Flavored substyle based on an higher number of existing examples. Classic examples: Gingerbread Beer, Coffee Beer, Spiced Christmas beer. The style also includes the “White Stout” or “Golden Stout”, a named generally used to represent a beer mimicking a stout as a result of omitting dark, roasted malts from the grain bill and replacing them with cold-steeped coffee, cacao nibs, and/or vanilla beans. The coffee, cacao nibs, and vanilla beans are added to the beer to impart the bitterness and roasted character that the dark, roasted malts impart, but without the color.
