A Note on This Beer
According to VinePair, Florida’s Cycle Brewing has “always knocked it out of the park with its barrel-aged Imperial Stouts!”
Culture Trip says they’re One of the 10 Best Breweries in Florida. And, judging by the long list of their decadent Stouts with 4+ ratings on Tavour, you guys love this crew, too!
So, when we had the opportunity to snag a brand new single-adjunct Stout from the brewery’s Cuvee Series, we jumped on it. To create Just Macadamia, the Cycle crew took their 4.33-rated Rare Dos Stout and aged it in Bourbon barrels for over 20 months! Then, they added a pile of real nuts.
Macadamia is among the richest and most luxuriant of nuts, so it makes a fantastic partner to this equally plush Stout! The nuts add a bit of earthiness and a gentle toastiness that seems to elevate the chocolate notes in the base beer.
Every sip is like biting into a fresh-from-the-oven brownie!
With Tavour, it's easy to beer it forward! Just head over to Tavour.com/gifts to send a gift box or gift card to the craft beer lover in your life. Cheers!

Just as it says
I enjoy the macadamias. Subtle but add a creamy mouthfeel.
Smooth, creamy, sweet and nutty. Good start to the weekend.
Very similar to almond. Good base beer but macadamia doesn't add much.
Smooth, creamy chocolately nuttiness that is delightful and easy to drink. My favorite of the Cuvee's from Cycle.
Nice and salty, nutty flavors. Not too much to distract from the brew like some of the other Cuvee flavors I’ve tried.
Wow that’s deep and rich. Nutty, but not extremely forward. The barrel-aging is hanging out there, but kinda in the background.
I’ve really enjoyed all my Cuvée beers from Cycle, but this one not so much. The flavor was overpowering and the beer was almost syrupy.
Chocolate with white macadamia nut notes
I haven't tried it, just want the points (:
Roasty, rich base with nice barrel and tons of Mac nuts.
Definitely has the barrel aged profile. Very smooth with lingering flavor. The macadamia is subtle, but not so much it's too hard to pick up.
Tasty and sweet stout, but the macadamia nuts didn’t really come thru
Very good! My favorite of the Cuvee’s that I’ve tried.
Great chocolate notes along with a subtle macadamia flavor. Still outstanding stout base with bourbon flavor.
Rich boozy flavor
Tropical nuttiness. Smooth chocolate
Rich and decadent.
amazing, glad the whole gang got one
very nice! strong! drinkable! flavorful!
Nuttier than the nut professor. No really.
weak macadamia notes
The barrel and sweetness comes through, but not balanced with the minimal macadamia flavor.
