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.

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 (2964) - 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)
