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.

Appearance: inky black, dark brown fing head, dissipates to a frothy ring.

Aroma: vanilla, bourbon, chocolate, buttery, caramel, charred wood.

Taste: buttery, bourbon, wood, vanilla, caramel, toffee, booze. Burns the throat.

Mouthfeel: thick and chewy, full bodied.

Overall: nice flavors and aromas, but its hot. I split the bottle, don't think I could have put away the whole thing.
