COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
STOUT AGED IN BOURBON BARRELS WITH CACAO NIBS, VANILLA BEANS, CHILES AND CINNAMON ADDED. ​Weve been thinking long and hard about one of our all-time favorites and how to put our personal lil twist on it. Or is this a big twist? Hmmm. Well have to think, and drink, on that one.

MrHangover (4414) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2017
Bottle. Pours a pitch black beer with a very small beige head on top. Aroma has lots of roasted malts, cinnamon and molasses. Also a big oaky presence in there in the background of the aroma. Flavor is the perfect balance between all the different spices and stout characters. Everything is in there, well balanced and nothing too overpowering. Moutfheel is a bit thin and watery, soft carbonation, yet long in syrupy sweet roastt aftertaste. Nice stuff!

Adamsville (312) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2017
Apparence : Pas compltement noire, reflets bruntres, lger col qui se dissipe rapidement malgr de petites bulles initialement actives.
Nez : Alcool, chocolat, caramel grill.
Got : Caramel grill sucr en entre, lalcool ne tarde pas se faire sentir avec la complmentarit dun malt chocolat. La finale est sucre, caramlise, lgrement amre et pice.
Sensation : Corps moyen, piquant sur la langue (attribuable la fois lalcool et aux piments chilis jimagine), chaleureuse.
Bref : On dirait quAvery est matre dans lart de faire sentir lalcool dans tous les aspects de la bire et pourtant en faire un breuvage quilibr et intressant. Le nez, la bouche, la gorge, la langue, tout porte sa marque et pourtant, jamais celle-ci ne devient drangeante. Sucre, caramlise, cest justement lalcool et les chilis en finale qui empchent cette ralisation dtre trop sucre. Bien faite!

Bottle pour at home, happy opening day. Pour into Avery signature barrel glass. Black pour thin head. Coco and coffee bourbon aroma, flavor is a little sweet and malty, oak bourbon licorice, cant say I really taste the cinnamon, but there were a little spice nots. These guys never disappoint with the barrel series.

12 oz bottle from Ratman! Nose is vanilla, chocolate,with light amounts of bourbon, wood and chilies. Black with a small lightly lacing cinnamon tan head. Flavor is moderately sweet dark chocolate, vanilla, and a nice light amount of pepperiness that gently licks your tongue. Excellent! Thanks for the bottle Don.

12 oz. bottle thanks to T.J. May 2016 vintage. Glad you spent the money for this. Too rich for my blood! Thanks dog!

No head on a pitch black liquid. The aroma is pepper up front, light vanilla, cinnamon, chocolate.

The flavor is what it should be. Yes again, cinnamon, light vanilla, and plenty of chiles. Oily texture over the palate. Body is medium plus with a mild chili heat. Thankful that the pepper heat is mild.

dnstone (3179) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 11, 2017
Pours black in color with a white head. Boozy cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate aroma. Thick and sweet, chocolately with strong vanilla Bourbon booze character and a nice significant chili burn in the finish. Cinnamon is in there but get gets eclipsed a bit by the chilies. Notes: On tap at the Aces and Ales Big Ass Barrel Aged Beer Bonanza Bonanza Blowout (Feb 17)

Aroma is molasses, dark ripe fruit, and a tiny pepper. Punch of chilis, but not the spice, just the flavor. Tobacco, vanilla, red velvet cake, and booze. Lots of booze. Bottle.
