Bon-Bon CeriseBon-Bon Cerise
Notes: Stout aged in bourbon barrels with cherry, cacao nibs, and vanilla beans.

​Dark, rich stout held in barrels like tart, gooey cherries held in a dark chocolate shell. Take a bite of this blissful beverage, courtesy of our beer chocolatiers. Nom nom bon bon!

Avery Bon-bon Cerise, 15.5% ABV. Pours black with a nice 1+ finger brown head. Nose is cherry, vanilla, and chocolate. Taste follows, moderately sweet, a bit of whiskey though not hot, no bitterness. Excellent mouthfeel, overall world-class. This one goes down so well that the ABV really sneaks up on you. This is my favorite Avery BA stout.

Jet-black body; thick, creamy head; sticky rings of foam step down the glass. Outstanding olfactory blend of caramel, vanilla, cocoa; a sense of dark roasted coffee. Exquisite flavor mixture; heavy sweetness immediately turns into a mild cherry flavor and bourbon barrel presence; milk chocolate and cocoa; dark roasted grain char; finishing with a cherry and chocolate sweetness. Heavy body; thick and velvety; sludgy; amazing residual sugar texture; alcohol heat counterbalancing the overall sweetness.

What a monster of a beer! The brewery has done a fine job of balancing the flavors and mouthfeel elements. It is always a pleasure (and a rarity) to have such a high ABV beer sporting a luxurious and lasting head. It's a cliché to note beers as having depth, balance, and complexity, but, damn, if this beer doesn't meet those descriptors. Outstanding!
