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.

12oz (bottled 3/27/2012) into a snifter. Pours an oily obsidian black w/ a thin mocha head that settles quickly, not so much lace as legs on the glass.

Aroma is deep and boozy. laden with bourbon, molasses, prunes, smoke, and more bourbon.

Taste is syrupy sweet, dark and roasty, bitter, boozy. Sugary dried dark fruits, molasses, chewy caramel, some vanilla, charred oak. A hint of cabernet.

Mouthfeel is slick and oily, thick and chewy. Strong alcohol heat.

Overall, as expected, this is an over-the-top imperial stout. A little too sweet and syrupy for my taste, but it's a unique experience nonetheless.
