BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Avery Brewing Company
Colorado, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 14.90%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Jacob Spears, our 6th Great Grand Uncle, is credited as the first distiller to label his whiskey “Bourbon.” He built his distillery in Bourbon County Kentucky in 1790 — 203 years before we began brewing. While obviously a bit too late to produce Uncle Jacob’s wash, we’ve instead created something far more complex. In his honor, we present this robust, silky smooth, full-bodied and altogether extremely American rendition of an Imperial Stout aged for 6 months in the very finest Bourbon barrels. This explains a lot about our penchant for big brews! It’s in our blood!

Very dark, smells like bourbon (surprise!), tastes like bourbon (very hot, though also very sweet), but it isn't as viscous as I was hoping. Wanted to like it more than I did: had a hard time drinking the whole thing, and, in general, Uncle Jacob's Bourbon Liqueur isn't good enough to warrant the $13.99 price tag.

Poured opaque brown/Black with thick brown head that settled into persistent cap. Carbonation glistened like jewels on sides of glass.

Aroma: Chocolate and whisky malt. Warm bread. Coconut and stone fruit.

Taste: Sweet chocolate with boozy notes. Thick and wine-like with plum sweetness.

Mouth: Thick and syrupy. Sticky.

Overall: It is a bottle of beer that can be sipped and enjoyed like a wine or brandy. Warm, but smooth ... could handle more balance but would pair and hold up to strong pungent cheese.

I read one review where this beer was described as "Fudge Brownie Vodka" is the perfect nutshell description. It is pretty difficult to pick up anything outside of the overwhelming booze flavor. The more I sipped looking for more depth, the more buzzed I got and forgot to "think" as I drank. Just too damn much heat and luckily my brother spent the loot to get this one, Way too high of a price tag for this fudge brownie vodka.
