Porters and stouts often have dark fruit flavors like dried cherries. You’ll commonly taste coffee, toffee, and nuts. Bold cereal flavors like barley and oats will assert themselves. Like IPAs, caramel is also often a front-running taste.
Roasty brown ale is chock full of fruit flavors like crisp apple, succulent plum, and sweet raisins. Like stouts and porters, you’ll pick up on some coffee, as well as malt and toasted biscuits. All of the fruitiness is rounded out with caramel.
Saison beers will typically have tons of fruit, including but not limited to berries, apples, and stone fruits like pears or peaches. A little bit of malt or barley will dance with funky, non-traditional flavors as crazy as mushrooms.
