A Note on This Beer
If there is any flavor that slipsseamlessly into a Stout, it’s vanilla. Avery Brewing Co.’s newest year-round offering, Bourbon Barrel aged Vanilla Bean Stout, delves headlong into an exploration of all things vanilla, with 3 unique vanilla beans in this silky 10.8% ABV Stout.
Avery’s brewmaster went to great lengths to create this decadent ode to vanilla. After an exhaustive taste testing of multiple varieties, they narrowed it down to 3:
- Mexican Vanilla is rich and seamless, with a creamy sweetness ideal for desserts. This variety works with the smooth Stout base to give this beer its velvety mouth feel.
- Uganda Vanilla has an earthy complexity, hinting at the raw delights of cocoa powder. This bean extends the chocolate and roasty flavors of dark malts.
- Tonga Vanilla has a boldly unique flavor that complements savory dishes with aromatic spices. Mingling with the vanilla hints of barrel wood, Tonga beans build on the Stouts spicy Bourbon flavors.
A luscious treat for the palate, Vanilla Bean Stout opens with a brush of sweetness, as lavish layers of caramel and molasses support the full spectrum of exotic bean character. The Bourbon Barrel weighs in with the finish, delivering woody spice and a boozy-warm finish.
The second release in Avery’s Botanicals & Barrels series, this brand new Stout is already garnering high community phrase. In Avery’s capable hands, this familiar flavor is showcased in a fresh, sumptuous manner.
