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.

Batch 1
Pours pitch black with a very small dark brown ring of bubbles. Very sweet on the nose, huge chocolate notes with a little bit of smoke. Taste is all chocolate upfront with sweet sugary toffee and a little bit of char that leads into an amazing warming bourbon aftertaste that lingers in your mouth. Mouth is on the thicker side with just enough carbonation to carry it. Overall I was very impressed with this brew and can't wait to see how it does in the cellar.
