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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- Pitch black body, foamy tan head that stays around for a unexpectedly long time.

S- Huge sweet bourbon, caramel, sweet sugary syrup, hints of oak, roasted malts.

T- Big bourbon sweetness, very sugary, big caramel notes, just enough wood presence, some chocolate. Absolutely huge flavor.

M- Full bodied, medium carbonation, lingering bourbon sweetness left behind in the mouth.

O- Just a huge, robust, thick bourbon stout that dominates the taste buds. Reminds me of BCBS with the huge flavor.
