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.

Re-writing this review as I've finally gotten my hands on a full bottle. Initial review was of 2013 vintage at GABF. Current review is of the 2014 vintage.

A - Pitch black, opaque

S - Sweet, mild bourbon on the nose

T - The sweetness just overwhelms me with this brew, it reminds me of Dark Lord and this is what I can't get over. Quite boozy, but so damn sweet and sugary. This really lowers the score on this beer for me...

M - Solid, thick rich.

Overall, I just cannot get over the sweetness of this brew... it punches me in the face and knocks me out. It's not at all a bad beer, but it's not something I would put in my top 250.
