Avery Night Warden Whiskey Barrel-Aged Stout

Return to List

This is a barrel-aged stout made for everyday drinking. With a manageable alcohol level, drinking this need not be a special occasion. The base stout recipe, with subdued chocolate, toffee and coffee flavors, remains intact and is lightly accented by a softly toasted wooden-barrel character. There is nothing flashy about this beer, no bells or whistles, just a showcase of what a familiar beer can do after a spell in whiskey barrels. A chocolate bitterness creeps in on the finish, but is washed away clean with the next, slightly sweet yet still refreshing sip. John Holl
