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.

demmbonz (732) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 4, 2016
12oz bottle to snifter. Lots of booze on the nose. Thinner bodied. All adjuncts are present, albeit subtly. Sweet finish but not over the top.

bookman10 (1096) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - OCT 27, 2016
Pours a rather watery black (not as thick and oily as youd expect), with minimal, almost no head. Aroma of vanilla, dark fruit, booze, bourbon, cherry, chocolate. Flavor is strongly vanilla, with some cocoa, just a slight touch of heat from the chiles, more than a little bourbon/booziness, plum, cherry, some licorice. Very smooth with a touch of the chile pepper heat in the finish. Quite tasty.

Bottle. Poured a black color with a tan head. Chocolate, vanilla, chili peppers (not over bearing), lighter spices, and bourbon. Lighter hot spice in the finish with the alcohol overall hidden.

emusche (209) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2016
Pours black with a thin, but sticky, tan head. Aroma is big bourbon, getting some vanilla bean and cacao too, some alcohol wafts off the top as well. Taste is bourbon, sweet vanilla, cinnamon, burn of the chiles at the back of the throat, and just a bit of that turn-your-head-booziness as well. Delicious.

The_Osprey (7812) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2016
August 2016 - Bottle share on level 42, with thanks to Leighton. As Avery Xolotl, 13.7%. Opaque black with a foamy brown head. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, coconut. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is vanilla, spicy chocolate syrup, drying harsh booziness. Rich and tasty but tangy harsh booze. Some very nice aspects just too harsh. (3.8)
