Avery Brewing Co. Botanicals & Barrels Vanilla Bean Stout

This stout was brewed with whole vanilla beans from Tonga, Uganda and Mexico, then aged in Bourbon barrels. The bouquet showcases both, in upfront scents of fresh vanilla, Bourbon-soaked oak and peppery woodspice that waft from the dark pour, with background hints of molasses and raw cocoa. The palate is medium-full and flavorful, with medium-minus carbonation that just lifts the sweet, rich flavors of toasted coconut, malted milk ball, caramelized brown sugar, char and vanilla-spiked plum and date. Hints of sweet smoke and soft warming spice grace the close. Lauren Buzzeo
