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: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottle poured into a stone snifter. Bottled 2/2014

Pours a thick midnight black/used motor oil look with mocha head. Aroma is intoxicating - heavy bourbon but so wonderful at the same time. Lots of vanilla, some light chocolate and roast and toasted coconut. Taste is much of the same with lots of alcohol and sticky mouthfeel and more heat from the alcohol, tons of alcohol. Overall this is a damn good bourbon barrel stout, it is certainly comparable with some of the big names out there like BCBS and Blacknote, although still a small step behind but certainly better than most, just a bit too much alcohol. However the outrageously high price certainly takes it down a notch.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Pours pitch black and viscous with a quickly fading mocha head with ruby highlights. Bourbon hits the nose first, followed by dark chocolate, dark fruit, and coffee. Lots of bourbon on the palate along with cocoa and quite a bit of alcohol heat. Medium bodied with little carbonation. Overall, this is an outstanding BA stout, but at 17% ABV, it's a bruiser!

Batch 3 - Bottled on February 4, 2014

Pours a dark brown to black color with at least a finger of tan head that enjoyed some lengthy retention. The nose has notes of bourbon. The body is full-bodied, sticky and creamy. The flavor profile leads off with a modest sweetness that is reminiscent of molasses. This initial blast is followed by wholesome roasted bitterness. The alcohol is a bit hot on this offering; this is definitely the type of beer that would be suitable for aging.
