Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: emmasdad on 04-08-2012

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 – Black as night, with some medium brown around the edges of the glass when held up to the light. Leaves behind some serious film when swirled around the glass. No lacing or head after the pour.

Smell – Alcohol, bourbon, dark malts...you can tell this is strong by the aroma.

Taste – Bourbon, alcohol, malts, vanilla and oak. Didn't pick out many fruits, but could be just me.

Mouthfeel – Fairly well carbonated - moreso than I expected. You can feel the alcohol as well, but it isn't overpowering and certainly feels below 14.83%.

Drinkability – Delicious. This is a sipper if there ever was one. Great warming as you drink, delicious flavors. Really enjoyable drinking experience.
