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.

4.24/5  rDev -3.9%

12oz bottle (bottled June 27, 2013 - 16.53% alcohol) poured into a Throwback snifter.

A - Pours an inky, oily pitch black color with a thin cap of dark khacki foam that fizzles away quickly leaving a foamy, thick collar...very sparse lacing.

S - Buttery toffee, rich caramel, sweet vanilla, coconut, smooth bourbon, molasses, touch of booze. Surprisingly devoid of roasty aromas. Smells like a candy bar.

T - Big bourbon up front, sweet, caramel, toffee, molasses, brown sugar, vanilla, coconut, touch of astringency, roasted malt, tobacco, a bit smoky.

M - Super thick and syrupy. Sticky with sweetness...leaves a sugary coating on the lips after every sip. Variety of sweet flavor character. Medium carbonation - a touch tingly. Warm booziness that is kept under control but is definitely noticeable and part of the overall feel of this beer.

O - A stout that is balanced far towards the sweet, sticky candy-like aspects of the style. Roasted character is minimal and in the background of the flavors. Definitely a sipper...the high alcohol content, warm alcohol burn, and prominent sweetness keep this one a slow goer. A bit out of the ordinary...definitely enjoyable - a dessert beer for sure.
