Medi­um-full to full body, often with a smooth, crea­my cha­rac­ter. May give a war­ming (but never hot) impres­si­on from alco­hol pre­sence. Mode­ra­te to moder­ate­ly-high carbonation.

A very dark, sweet, frui­ty, moder­ate­ly strong ale with smooth roas­ty fla­vors without a burnt harshness.
Zuta­ten
Simi­lar to a sweet stout, but with more gra­vi­ty. Pale and dark roas­ted mal­ts and grains. Hops most­ly for bit­ter­ness. May use adjuncts and sugar to boost gra­vi­ty. Typi­cal­ly made with warm-fer­men­ted lager yeast.

Noti­zen
Tas­tes like a sca­led-up sweet stout with hig­her frui­ti­ness. Simi­lar to some Impe­ri­al Stouts without the high bit­ter­ness, strong/burnt roas­ti­ness, and late hops, and with lower alco­hol. Much more sweet and less hop­py than Ame­ri­can Stouts. Much swee­ter and less bit­ter than the simi­lar-gra­vi­ty Export Stouts.
