I dent care about styles. I like great beer. I get a full on beer boner for unique great beer. If you like Avery stouts (calygipyions was my fave). This is for you. I need to get Ritch. 6/$90 of these per day would improve the quality of my life. I might cure cancer or AIDS if I could pull that off.

12 oz bottle, $8.99
Peace Tree mini snifter
2019 vintage

Deep, thick, viscous and black. Thin ring of head.

Light aromas of mild coffee and french toast.

The flavor is nothing short of phenomenal. Layers and layers of sticky bourbon and sticky maple with slices of french toast and chocolate chips in between. Cinnamon biscotti, maple toast cereal, and roasty semi-sweet coffee. Another wave of wet, sticky bourbon comes forward. Just wow. This is fucking nuts.

Feel is super thick, creamy, sticky, and roasty. Alcohol heat is perfect. This beer will destroy your ass.

Had I known it was this good, I would have dropped $100 easy on these bottles. Stupid me bought two, and now I'm regretting it.

look: very dark, nearly opaque. Some ruby highlights when held too light. Modest mocha head on the pour that mostly recedes. Messy, thick mocha lacing.
smell: Rich bourbon maple. Coffee and Cinnamon in the back seat but doing their part for this killer nose.
taste: much like the nose, meaning fantastic rich blend of all the flavors advertised. Just superb as usual for the Avery ninjas.

Picked up this 12 oz. bottle in Omaha, NE. It hadn’t appeared in MN, I love all things maple, & my FOMO was starting to cause physical symptoms. Lo! Here it is.

The stout, it is black, the goddam stout is black! Minimal, short-lived foam. The nose is full of maple, bourbon, coffee. So good.

Double Barreled Maple Stout is like syrup aficionado crack. Maple syrup oozes out of every pore of this brew, filling the mouth & the mind with sweet, sweet molasses. Bourbon is a strong second chair, with the backing of distant roast adding light bitterness & a deep, abiding maltiness. Surprisingly little booziness. Full, filling, & something that I could drink a lot of, right up until I woke up naked in my backyard covered in mosquito bites. Doesn’t sound so bad.

The marriage of malt, bourbon, & syrup is borderline flawless. Magnificent beer. Please make more & put it in buckets.

A: Black with very thick tan foam and solid lacing that just does not fade.
N: Loads of maple, some chocolate, coffee, and vanilla sweetness.
T: Big maple flavors up front with a semi-sweet dark chocolate, some coffee and vanilla creeping around.
M: Medium/full with some booze to this one. Smooth for the ABV but still packs a hit.
O: Loved the flavors and balance, it was not hard to drink with such a high ABV. The maple balanced out the booze.

Tiny bit biased review since I have a sweet tooth, and love maple syrup flavor in stouts. That being said, this is the holy grail for this particular taste.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter glass.

Look: Pours pitch black, thick with a small lace of tan foam at the top.

Smell: Some maple syrup muddled with cinnamon and a small trace of coffee. Can smell the alcohol along with rich maltiness.

Taste: Ahhh, there it is. Was a little disappointed with the maple syrup in the nose, but it comes flooding in on the taste. Cinnamon is also present, and the two together make an excellent flavor combination. Tons of sweetness with just enough spice. For some reason the coffee was not super pronounced for me, but present.

Feel: Some carbonation in the feel, but the real highlight is the smoothness of the syrup. It is very detectable in the within the rest of the beer.

Overall: This is the first beer I have had from Avery, and it was worth every penny. An excellent rare beer that I am glad I had chance to try. Excited for the other Avery beers I have in my cupboard.

Had this at the Reno Biggest Little Invitational on June 8, 2019. Preferred it to the Maple Parabola that Firestone Walker brought.

Anyways, pours black as night. Thin 1/4" brown head. Aroma excelled due to the usage of coffee. The coffee and cinnamon got the aroma going elsewhere besides just maple. You got a more complex and enjoyable mixture of bourbon, maple, coffee and cinnamon. Colorado Cassian Sunset up in here.

The taste also imparted that same medley of flavors, none of which were so big that it stepped on the others' toes. I will say the cinnamon was the least impactful, but that is how it should be. Just a sprinkle (genie). Carbonation was good, too often they make it almost absent and then the sludge factor is really there. It was boozy, but shit man, 15% will do that, and it wasn't excessively so by any means. Was one of my more favorite beers that day. Totally a great beer to have at a festival, a couple ounces is the right amount.

Pours a thick oily black color with a thin khaki head. Smell as described by label bourbon,maple,wood,coffee. Taste follows nose bourbon and maple are nicely matched together and shine in this stout. Chocolate and brownie up next with coffee and a dash of cinnamon. Its boozy yes but not in your face but you will feel it when done. A thick and sweet stout that delivers what is advertised and very good.

Pours pitch black with a thin tan cap, okay legging when swirled. Aroma is boozy, bourbon, maple and dark roasted malts. Flavor follows the nose, with a little cinnamon as well, definitely getting some heat. Feel is thick and syrupy. Overall an outstanding beer that I paid too much for, but will look for more.

Bought locally, bottled April 18th 2019.

Looks to be pitch black, has a small but firm head of tan foam, lacing is good for a beer this high in abv.

Wow, the smell is almost overwhelming with the maple, barrel, and roasted malt in that order. It smells boozy and sweet overall; expected.

The taste is superb with the flavours I mentioned in the smell. Boozy? Yes. A joy of a sipper? Damn straight. The maple and the Bourbon are bold. I do get some of that cinnamon goodness, the coffee is there as well and adds just a slight tinge of bitterness.

Feels full bodied to me.

Great entry of a beer for Avery. Almost makes me forgive them for dropping the Demon series, but not quite.

Poured from fridge temp into Avery snifter. Pours black with lots of carbonation. Bubbles throughout and a good amount of head. Nose is maple, bourbon, coffee, roasted malts, vanilla, candy, and toffee. It smells like it's too cold. The taste is really amazing. Lots of maple layered with coffee, toffee, bourbon, hickory, vanilla, cherries. It definitely comes across with heavy sweetness, as expected with the maple. There is a syrupy feel to it, which I would rather not have. Mouthfeel is super thick and lingering, and the alcohol is there but definitely doesn't seem like 15%. Overall, this isn't mind-blowing, but it's really good.
