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.

Drank from a 12 fl oz bottle purchased at Liquor World, Cambridge, MA
Batch No. 1
Bottled MAR 27 2012
Served in a snifter

Motor oil-like appearance. The beer poured a super thick and viscous, dark brown color. A whisp of coffee colored froth topped the liquid, but it quickly dissipated to a clingy ring.

Aroma-wise, this was a total mocha bomb. Super rich and robust. Loads of roasted and caramel malts. Creamed coffee. Semi-sweet chocolate. Tons of vanilla. Strong brown sugar notes. Some woodiness. Not a lot of actual bourbon initially, but the bourbon came out in full force as the beer warmed. The booziness was surprisingly subdued considering the extremely high ABV.

The flavor profile was intense and a bit rougher than the nose. Lots of alcohol warmth. Deep, rich, robust malts. Roasted and caramel malts came through on the front end. Loads of espresso. Good dose of vanilla. Some sweet cream. Tons of brown sugar sweetness. Overall, a nice balance of sweet and roasty flavors. The finish was boozy (in a good way) and surprisingly hoppy. The hops were piney and minty. Moderately bitter. Roasted malts and pine resin lingered on my palate long after each sip. As the beer warmed, the bourbon notes really came forth, but the beer never turned overtly boozy or harsh.

The mouthfeel was intense. Super lush, creamy and thick. Ultra viscous on the palate with a fine, tongue blanketing effervescence. The residue from the liquid left a sticky film on my lips.

Even though this beer registers in at over 17% ABV, it was amazingly smooth and drinkable. With a year of age on my bottle, now seems to be the perfect to drink this. If you enjoy huge, sweet, bourbon-forward beers, you will probably love this.

12oz bottle from March 27 2012, batch #1. About a year and half old at this point. Poured into Gandhi Bot snifter. 17.4% abv.

A- Pours a thick very dark black with pretty much no head, maybe just a slight mocha head and some very light lacing on the sides. Not a whole lot in terms of carbonation, I guess that's a welcoming sight though after the '08 Mephistophles that was over carbonated.

S- Lots of bourbon, some oak, raisins, booze, a tiny bit of dark chocolate. Decent aroma but the high abv definitely makes itself known. Not a ton of complexity at this stage but I think it could develop.

T- Port soaked rasinis, bourbon, licorice, dark fruits, chocolate fudge, finishes with just a hint of chalkiness, smooth bourbon, and creamy dark chocolate. Overall taste is a little bit more complex then aroma, booze isn't overally harsh, in my opinion the taste isn't anything extraordinary though.

M- Very smooth for the abv, there is some burn on the back end, fairly low carb, overall a pretty nice feel considering the abv.

O- This was the second time I've had this beer, I wasn't overally impressed but considering the style and abv Avery did a decent job- still this remains a gimmicky beer to me based on the high abv. There was a nice complexity to this beer but there are plenty other stouts that I'd rather drink.

Deep, cocoa color with tan cream colored head. Weak retention as expected for the strength. Boozy, bourbon, roasted oat, dark chocolate, charcoal aroma. Intimidating yet inviting at the same time. Alcohol makes a strong presence on the palate. Mostly sweet roasted almonds and chocolate flavor paired against smooth, rich, molasses like bourbon character. Full, dense, sticky body. Good carbonation for the strength. Well executed barrel aged stout. Would have been better with a slightly lower alcohol content.

Pitch black color. No head. Bourbon is huge in the aroma right away some burnt coffee and alcohol. Really sweet taste especially after it sits awhile. I usually shy away from the sweetness but this one is ok. Strong coffee flavor with oak somewhere in the middle. Thick, slick mouthfeel.

served from a twelve ounce bottle

a- Used motor oil black, highly viscous with a small brown skim for head

s-Tons of bourbon barrel notes, vanilla, coconut, molasses and oak dominate

t- I can't believe how well the ultra high abv is hidden. Vanilla, oak, bourbon, molasses, smokey chocolate and a subtle cherry sweetness. Delicate yet assertive. Beautiful.

m-creamy and viscous with the perfect amount of co2 to keep it lively

o- I bought three, I wish I bought a case. This is in the same league as the greats. Avery hit a homerun with this one. world class

12oz, 3/27/12
KtG snifter glass

A: Pours what else, pitch black. Really dark. Initially I did get a faint layer of mild tan color. Forms a ring around the edge of the glass quickly though. Tons of alcohol feet. Definitely seeing some lacing after swirl. Bits of tan.

S: Starting this on the cold side, but still getting good flavor. Initially I was getting some of that soy sauce leading to dark fruity character. Then after swirling I do get more of that barrel: vanilla, coconut, burnt sugar, etc. Some really deep chocolate too.

T: Yet again, another huge beer from Avery. Twice in less than a month. Up front, deep dark chocolate and espresso bitterness on the tip of the tongue. As it starts to warm, I am definitely getting more of that BA character. Really nice vanilla and Creme Brûlée type notes. Toffee. Maybe some coconut like I smelled. So many flavors. Gonna sit in this a while. The close is long. Leaves you with some many flavors. It's scary easy to drink for 17% ABV. I mean, it's there and you feel it down your throat (and through your body) but not overpowering.

M: Full bodied. Really comes in from the sides and encapsulates the mouth.

O: A-

Black with a dark mocha head and really nice lacing. The head quicly recedes, leaving only some remnants of it around the edges. A sweet, rich but alcohol filled aroma; sugary, chocolate, oak, and bourbon. A little sugar sweetness shows itself in the get go but its paired with some bourbon and alcohol, then the milk chocolate shows itself in the finish and stays strong into the after taste. Tastes like I have a bite of milk chocolate slowly melting in my mouth. Thick, rich, sugary, awesome. A nice creamy medium bodied mouthfeel to this with no carbonation to it, allowing the flavors to stick with you rather than be washed away. Overall, all I got to say about this is its fantastic. It's definitely got some heat to this but its balanced with a great, rich flavor. The bourbon barrel was used with great finesse, it contributes to this beer without taking over and dominating the beer's identity. One of the most enjoyable sippers I have come across. Might have to break the bank and buy some more of this.

Pours black and thick. Nice khaki colored head of about 1.5 fingers. Nice lacing left behind once the head dissipates.

Strong aroma of bourbon, roasted malt and alcohol vapor. Chocolate, smoke and more booze.

Big flavors starting with bourbon. Roasted malt, chocolate, and hints of espresso and vanilla. Some alcohol spice/burn but nothing like is suggested by the aroma. Oak notes and a bit of something herbal at the end.

Rich thick body with a bit of creaminess. Oily and dense on the tongue. Flavors linger along with an alcoholic burn.

This is a quality barrel age stout though it pales compared to some of the elite BA stouts such as BCBS. Biggest problem is the intense alcoholic nose. Taste is less intense on the booze but still could be dropped 1 notch.

2015 version

Pours an octopus ink black with a decent brown head of tiny bubbles that settles back into a thin, broken up layer on top.

Smells like bourbon, oak, chocolate, carmelized sugars, roasted malts, and molasses.

Lots of bourbon taste. Fairly hot. Then a burnt brown sugar/molasses flavor with a hint of vanilla sweetness. A bunch of chocolate and some expresso follow along with the oak. The bourbon is there throughout.

Fantastic silky, full body for a barrel aged beer.

A world class beer, but I would like to see what a little age does for it. It seemed to pick up quite a bit of bourbon from the barrel and that heat is there the whole time at any temperature. I have had some others in this abv range that mask it better, so that would be my biggest knock.

Deep chocolate brown, velvety appearance, good head with long retention.

Aromas are raisins, soy, fudge, coffee, and wood.

Robust flavors. Tons of coffee and fudge. Boozy, but as a positive quality. Raisins. Long brownie finish.

Thick and smooth. Moderate to low carbonation.

A top notch bourbon barrel stout that's heavy on the flavor and fun to sip.

2013 vintage, consumed fresh. Pours super thick black. Whoa. Nice gentle dark brown head of fine bubbles that quickly settles to a thin ring mostly around the glass. Pitch black liquid with almost no edgings, just a crescent of very dark brown. Smells vanilla, bourbon, dark chocolate, dark-roast coffee, hot clean alcohol. Blackberry and grassy from hops (Northern Brewer?), grocery-stored glazed donut, almonds, wet lined-paper (don't worry, it's not the same smell as oxidation papery).

Tastes intense. Strong bourbon, vanilla, rich chocolate, salt, coconut, charred wood cinders on a toasted marshmallow. Wow. Scorched pears, blackberry, cedar, lightly of cherry sour. Sweet, but not sticky, which allows clean alcohol and md-strong carbonation to clean the tongue. Carbonation is fine-bubbled and contributes to a creaminess in the liquid. Md-thick, pleasantly throat and tummy warming, and wood drying and alcohol-sting in the finish.

Intense, complex, and cooperative. This beer tells an interesting story and was worth the $12 price tag. Not one to have every night, but worth trying this once and maybe a again a couple times each year. This is a beer worth holding onto in the cellar for a couple years while the flavors come together and the little alcohol heat settles a bit. in general, Avery's big beers age well to develop a 'completeness' in 2-3 years. While this could go longer, I wouldn't chance longer than 3 years.

A: into a tulip glass, pitch black thick beer coughed up a slim collar of dark tan foam that left a few motes behind

S: bourbon and chocolate syrup; fragrant earthy hops

T: mmm - rich dark malt chocolate, sweet and slightly bitter; nice hop profile over the malts - almost rye-like notes; grains peek through the deep syrup, vanilla, touches of anise/fennel

M: silky, smooth, creamy, heavy, dense; surprisingly clean finish topped off with drier whiskey notes

O: sometimes I wonder what I need to find in an Imperial stout to really blow me away these days, but this was a real treat of a beer - great combination of the rich stout flavors, herbal hops, and bourbon whiskey. Was sweet but not too heavy-handed about it, truly great balance of flavors and feel; with its high abv, a real decadent way to end the day.

2013 release
Exactly 5 months old (since bottled)

Been sittin on this puppy for a while in order to let that 16% mellow JUST a little bit. I think our post-Thanksgiving feast is a great way sip this and digest away for hours.

Black as night...no light passing through it...yada yada yada...same old bullshit description everyone gives.

Now, the aroma is where this thing makes a name for itself. BIG blast of sweet, chocolatey bourbon. Alcohol is so tame for the huge ABV. Coffee grounds and dark chocolate are at the VERY back of the aroma with a little tobacco and caramel coming through once it warmed up.

Flavor is very similar to BCBS in that it is not too shy on the bourbon as well as very very sweet. Even though I am a big stickler for sweetness done the wrong way, this beer is bordering cloying, but it makes for a nice aperitif after that GIANT turkey feast. Same characteristics as in the aroma: a lot of coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, toffee, and a little chocolate syrup about mid palate that delivers the intense sweetness.

Not sure what this beast was like the day it was bottled, but I can only imagine the alcohol presence is a little smoother now. This was a real treat and even though my folks don't appreciate beers like this, I don't mind not sharing and tackling this bad boy myself.

12 oz bottle, batch 5, poured into a tulip

A- Black with a two finger mocha head.

S- Bourbon, molasses, vanilla, chocolate, some roasted malts, hints of dark fruits, boozy.

T- Bourbon, some charred oak, roasted coffee, vanilla, chocolate, some dark fruit/sweet booziness.

M- A little hot, but smooth enough for 17% ABV, full body.

O- A big tasty stout. Alcohol is noticeable and a little hot, not over the the top for 17.1% ABV. Would like to see how this ages.

Poured into a 16 oz snifter, bottled in February of 2015 and weighing in at 16.9%. The perfect beer to to review on my 5 year anniversary on BA. Pours completely black with a 3 inch brown head, that leaves behind patches of lace.

Smell is very large, with bourbon, vanilla, roasted coffee, dark chocolate, leather, tobacco, and smoke.

Taste follows the nose perfectly, with vanilla, roasted coffee, and dark chocolate starting the party and a smoky bourbon leather finish and just hanging out out on the your palate until you sip again.

Body is a little bit bigger than medium, plenty of carbonation for the style, very dry, and a sipper that still drinks way to easy.

This is eventually going to be one of those beers you drive all over town picking up bottles, so darn good.

12oz (bottled 3/27/2012) into a snifter. Pours an oily obsidian black w/ a thin mocha head that settles quickly, not so much lace as legs on the glass.

Aroma is deep and boozy. laden with bourbon, molasses, prunes, smoke, and more bourbon.

Taste is syrupy sweet, dark and roasty, bitter, boozy. Sugary dried dark fruits, molasses, chewy caramel, some vanilla, charred oak. A hint of cabernet.

Mouthfeel is slick and oily, thick and chewy. Strong alcohol heat.

Overall, as expected, this is an over-the-top imperial stout. A little too sweet and syrupy for my taste, but it's a unique experience nonetheless.

So this is it. My 1000th beer on Beer Advocate. Not my 1000th beer in life but on this website for sure. Pretty amazing to have come this far in the world of beer. A quick rundown of important events that led me here:

I was young once (underage) and I drank 40s and Busch Light to get drunk. I turned 21 and got a job at a liquor store (Spec's). I befriended the head of the beer department, he taught me everything he knew about beer, he moved away, I became head of the beer department. I became friends with one of our beer sales reps and he gave me my first "alternative" beer. It was the Belgian beer Delirium Nocturnum. I was hooked! I became a Craft and Belgian beer salesman after that. A buddy gave me a homebrew kit for my 23rd birthday. I dabbled with brewing until it wrapped its loving arms around me and I got hooked. I've been brewing at least twice a month for some 6 years now. I volunteer at Thirsty Planet Brewing and me and my gal Amanda (my Corndog) are moving to Portland in 4 weeks so that I can pursue my passion for brewing professionally and hopefully one day start my own brewery.

Now for the review:

Pours black as ever, no light shines thru, a little bit of dark brown bubbles hanging out on top. The nose is milk chocolate, vanilla, bourbon in the background, caramel, just intense. Chocolate is the biggest player in the aroma. The taste....big sticky chocolate, bourbon, oak, vanilla, chocolate chip cookie, brown sugar with an accent of salt, very rich. Getting a little bit of alcohol burn in the finish but I'm surprised its masked so well. Its like 17%!!! Big ass body. Redonkulous.

Glad I could make this my 1000th beer on this great site. I have been a fan of Avery since I knew what craft beer was and they never disappoint. Cheers everyone and happy brewing/drinking!!!

Split a bottle with a friend. Thanks to MinorThreat for the bottle.

Pours black with a minimal tan head that fades immediately.

Smells heavily of boozey bourbon, vanilla and oak. Some chocolate also comes through.

Flavor is amazing. Alcohol is not as present as in the nose. Rich chocolate and some roastiness blend well with the barrel notes. At this ABV, it's hard to completely mask the booze, but it's just a component and doesn't overpower the other flavors.

Low carbonation creates a silky smooth mouthfeel.

Fantastic beer although definitely a sipper. 6 oz of this was about right. I was amazed how smooth this one went down. Definitely digging the Avery barrel program.

Thanks Denise!

Not too much head or lace, but that's not the strongpoint if this beer. Roast and booze in the nose, yadda yadda yadda. Taste is where this baby shines!

Wonderfully complex: roast, caramel, toffee, booze, dark fruits, more booze, some cherry medicine at the end. Excellent blend, great body. Minimal hints of the booze when cold, though it shines through as it warms. Really damn good overall.

Pours very thick and motor-oil black with a solid finger of thick and frothy light brown foam.

Chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, vanilla, and bourbon.

Rich notes of chocolate and roast, molasses, oak, vanilla, and warming bourbon sweetness.

Heavy-bodied, light-medium carbonation, chewy, roasty, and rich.

Overall, truly a top-contended in my opinion. The alcohol is hardly noticeable considering the high ABV, this will definitely creep up on you.

appearance: Deep dark brown. A little reddish gown hints around the edges when held to light. Impressive mocha head especially for a monster of a stout.
smell: A decadent bourbon, dark chocolate, malt, and dart fruit dessert.
taste: and all of the promise of the nose is delivered.
overall: This ain't nuthin but good. Rich, bad-ass, transcendent. Holy shit. Fwiw, alcohol is there but amazingly well masked for such a beast.
I realize there are some that argue all 5's are impossible. This beer for me could not get any better. Nothing should be added or taken away imo and so I have to got with perfect.

Best samples are someone elses samples. Pours a rich midnight black color with a tan head with ok retention that didn't last through the tasting.

The nose is rich with malt and chocolate. Some vanilla and woody notes. The bourbon is noticeable but soft. Would have expected a bit more. Noticeable alcohol that could use some aging. Good thing we have more bottles. Some minor esters and phenolics and a hint of yeast bite but overall mostly clean.

The taste is similar. A bigger astringent bite with a more coco note with a soft roast and burnt character on the finish. The fusel/alcohol note comes out and really deters in the taste. But the bourbon and wood notes come out vs the nose and help balance. The esters come out more vs the nose as well with a light cherry and hint of mint (hops?) on the back end.

The body is moderately full. Would have liked a bit more depth for style but still very good. Carbonation is a bit high but also ok. Overall a very good beer but needs a ton of time to age.

A: Pours absolutely pitch black with a finger of dense light brown head.

T: So smooth, very strong dark chocolate mixed with caramel and bourbon. Certainly on the sweet side.I get some roasted malts in the background, but a bit muted. A bit hot, but not overly hot, particularly for the ABV.

M: Very thick with good carbonation.

O: A bit on the hot side, but great flavors. I wish they made a similar stout at maybe 11%, but this is a very good stout. Nice roast, dark chocolate, and bourbon.

Pours a thick, pitch black like motor oil. Medium dark tan/brownish head that goes down at a steady pace. Scent is sweet bourbon up front. A ton of it in fact. Some intense booziness as well. Smells like a booze chocolate cake. A ton of toffee and nuttiness. Taste is boozy chocolate cake and sweet brown sugar with some burnt sugar malt flavors. Intense bourbon flavor with a great amount of toffee and vanilla. Subtle coffee flavors with mocha and more vanilla. Boozy warming sensation. Mouthfeel is full bodied and syrupy. Drinkability is fairly high for how big it is. Overall, this is a very tasty beer that is somewhat comparable to Black Tuesday. Not really as well-balanced though.
