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.

Appearance - The beer was deep black with bubbles crowning the sudes if the glasses.

Smell - Aside from the bourbon, the aroma was not overly distinct.

Taste - on the initial taste, I detect sweet dark fruits, bourbon, milk chocolate, and a molasses stickiness. The taste sticks and coats the tongue. The molasses and coffee coat the tongue and linger.

Mouthfeel - This beer reaches sticky levels of presence.

Overall - I may be overserved, but I love this one.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. 2015 Vintage, bottled 2/13/15.

A- Pours pitch black with a fair amount of khaki colored head which slowly fades to the side. Tons of alcohol legs are noted too.

S- Lots of chocolate and coffee notes on the nose, the bourbon is there but slightly drowned out by the others.

T- Chocolate, coffee, oak and bourbon. Not much else to say here.

M- Thick and chewy, drinks hot, leaves a warming feeling after each sip.

Nice BA stout, drinks very hot fresh, would be a great candidate for some age.
