STOUT AGED IN BOURBON BARRELS WITH CACAO NIBS, VANILLA BEANS, CHILES AND CINNAMON ADDED. ​We’ve 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. We’ll have to think, and drink, on that one.

On tap @ Strong Ale Fest 2016. Extremely dark brown beer with a thin khaki head. Not the greatest...kind of the typical Avery high boost mess. Has some nice qualities from the adjuncts, particularly the vanilla and cacao. Get sort of a dusty cinnamon thing going on. Decent amount of oak, lots of bourbon, and strong vanilla. Big time sweetness and certainly on the boozy side.

A deep dark stout with a thin light mocha head. In aroma, beautiful sweet chocolate malt with light chili and light vanilla extract, alcohol warmth, very nice and smooth. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity chocolate malt with light chili notes, light vanilla, licorice notes, very nice. Bottle from Pushkinwow.

Bottle from Capones. Dark brown with a faint mocha head that mostly fades away to a thin ring. Vanilla, sweet chocolate malts, some bourbon, bit of oak, cinnamon but all cut (for good or for bad) with dried green chilli seeds and some husk, then booze. Moderate+ carbonation and full body, semi sweet, chocolate, malty, bit dry with mild heat on the finish. Chillies don’t overwhelm and in some ways balance out what might have been too much cloying, interesting experiment for sure.

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 (348) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2017
Apparence : Pas complètement noire, reflets brunâtres, léger col qui se dissipe rapidement malgré de petites bulles initialement actives.
Nez : Alcool, chocolat, caramel grillé.
Goût : Caramel grillé sucré en entrée, l’alcool ne tarde pas à se faire sentir avec la complémentarité d’un malt chocolaté. La finale est sucrée, caramélisée, légèrement amère et épicée.
Sensation : Corps moyen, piquant sur la langue (attribuable à la fois à l’alcool et aux piments chilis j’imagine), chaleureuse.
Bref : On dirait qu’Avery est maître dans l’art de faire sentir l’alcool dans tous les aspects de la bière et pourtant en faire un breuvage équilibré et intéressant. Le nez, la bouche, la gorge, la langue, tout porte sa marque et pourtant, jamais celle-ci ne devient dérangeante. Sucrée, caramélisée, c’est justement l’alcool et les chilis en finale qui empêchent cette réalisation d’être trop sucrée. 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, can’t 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.

12oz bottle shared by Chalumeaux. Dated 05/19/16. Thanks, TJ! Pours dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is cinnamon, vanilla, chili, chololate. Flavor is chocolate, chilis, vanilla, cinnamon. Bourbon barrel aging effect is hard to detect.

Chalumeaux (1570) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 23, 2017
Poured from bottle dated May 19, 2016 cherry cola color with a thin tan head and nice lacing. Aromas of dark fruit spices molasses cinnamon. Taste is tobacco dark fruit cocoa and a nice lingering chili finish. It’s good but trying to find the barrel here.
