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.

Thanks be to Blindpiggie for this one... The new 2013 release of Uncle Jacob's is a stout that transcends the taste buds, and takes them on a journey to the beer drinkers equivalent of Valhalla. It possesses the caramel qualities of a BCBS and Parabola, while also hinting at the chocolate dreaminess of Odells' Lugene. As Avery is prone to do (Mome), the high ABV is balanced out with an elegant sweetness that can really only be matched by the artisans at Goose Island.The barrel is incorporated in a way that is, well, completely sublime. My strongest recommendation on this one...it is the perfect Bourbon-Barrel aged stout.
Edit june 2014...The last release of Uncle Jacob's was extremely underwhelming. It lacked the complexity of past vintages, and was just ok.
