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: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: Impenetrable black, viscous, syrupy. Impressively tenacious chestnut colored head. Very appealing looking beer.

S: Oozing dark chocolate toffee bomb, slightly nutty, smooth oak throughout, vanilla marshmallow. More dark fruit than BCBS or Eclipse. Hardly any booze on the nose, very impressive. I can't take my nose out the glass. I might just smell it all night.

T: Sweet bourbon-soaked malts, cocoa powder, echoes of the aroma. Not a lot of booze flavor, but rest assured this is one extremely warming beer. Happy belly. Finishes with long lingering barrel character.

M: Very syrupy and sticky - what do you expect? A slow sipper, the small bottle is a 3hr event.

Fantastic stout, I wish I had more of these to lay down.
