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.

So I figured I'd review this brew as my first. I first had this as the first beer to kick off a weekend full of Phish shows. Beer was poured into a solo cup and drank almost instantly. I enjoyed it so much, I went back to the spot of purchased and bought all of them off the self. I'm reviewing my second time enjoying this brew.

12 oz bottle (Bottled 6/27/13 Batch #2) poured into snifter

Classic dessert beer here. Pours dark black, beautiful 2 finger head, smells amazing.

Initial taste is bourbon, after taste is best described by creamy dark chocolate and some toffee and caramel. Goes down so smooth for a 16.53%.

FULL BODY - Mouth feel is excellent. Well worth the $15.99 i paid per bottle. Really looking forward to having this again next year after it's been in the cellar a while. A+ double stout that I highly recommend.
