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.

Inch tall mocha head on a dark brown, borderline black body. Splotchy lacing. Cap and collar stick around throughout.

Big chocolate notes in the nose, along with sweet/boozy barrel notes.

More with the cocoa. The bourbon barrel is noticeable but not over-powering. Lingering aftertaste. Wouldn't guess ~17%abv, maybe closer to the 13%
-14% range.

Mouthfeel is on the thicker side. Smooth micro-bubbled carbonation.

Never have I had a beer, barrel aged or otherwise, that has lingered on the tongue for so long after each sip. I'm quite enjoying that aspect. Very nice beer overall.

Review from notes dated 12/7/13 during the 1st annual BA Winter Warmer Pub Crawl: Denver Style. Todd split a 12 oz bottle between eight of us at the Lucky Pie in LoDo. I lucked out and had two small pours...

Opaque brown body with a thin brown head. Aroma of chocolate, molasses, oak, dates. Flavors mirror the aroma with the addition of a big booze note and sharp hop bitterness. Rich, thick, heavy mouthfeel with lots of residual sugars.

An eye-opening, big beer. A must have for the adventurous lovers of large, complex dark beers.
