Notes/Commercial Description:
In the quest to create a collection of barrel-aged beers to be reproduced annually, Avery Brewing Company is releasing Uncle Jacob’s Stout, the second member of its Annual Barrel Series. The collection began with Rumpkin rum barrel-aged pumpkin ale in the fall of 2011, and now continues with this 17.4% ABV stout that was aged in first-use Bourbon barrels for 6 months. While the Avery Barrel-Aged Series features one-time-only batches, such as the recent Muscat d’Amour and Récolte Sauvage, the Annual Barrel Series features a selection of cellarable barrel-aged beers that fans can return to and get to know every year.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Black with a mocha head. Slight collar. Leggy and sugary with a nice swirl. Looks like a big one.

Smell - Super chocolatey. Bourbon is secondary. Some dark fruits come out too, but it's a bucket of chocolate.

Taste - Chocolate is the dominant flavor. Fudgy sweet chocolate. Barrel is faint again. Molasses and a cherry flavor in the middle which is interesting. Hot finish.

Mouthfeel - Thick as hell. Chewy and boozy. Definite sipper, but I guess that goes without saying for something like this.

Overall - Tasty and very big. All of the hazards of its style and size. Would like to see more barrel influence on it.
