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.

I bought a single back in July and saved it until Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, I was sick on Thanksgiving, so I popped it tonight for MNF. Man, this is an incredible beer.

Nothing too crazy about the look. Typical stout look...pours black with a big dark brown head that fades to a ring and leaves little to no lacing on my Chimay goblet.

For such a boozy beer, I was impressed that I was not overwhelmed with bourbon/alcohol on the first scent. The nose starts with a good dash of cocoa and chocolate and a bit of licorace. As it warmed, there was a bit of vanilla and toffee along with some dark fruits.

Man, the taste is much better than I expected based on the scent. I get a lot of vanilla, chocolate, roasted toffee, and dark fruits. The flavors are mesh together perfectly. So tasty, gets so much better as it warms. This one is uber thick and chewy with a huge creamy finish to boot. I've never had a big beer taste this smooth before. Perfect.

It ticks me off that I did not buy a few more of these back when I had the chance over the summer. I'd love to try another in a year or so. This one is easily one of my top 20 beers.
