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.

3.73/5  rDev -14.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle into a matching Avery tulip pint glass. A very rough pour down the middle of the glass yields a thick black solution with less than a finger of brown head atop. The cap fades and holds to a thin film atop supported by some rising bubbles of carbonation. Faintly around the edge of the glass can you see a bit of brown clarity. When swirled, some fingers of fine lace stick to the glass.

The aroma has some rich malt sweetness reminiscent of cocoa blended with just a hint of leather, tobacco and soy. More smells bring out a focus on alcohol esters with raisins and plums being quite evident. The barrel presence is really felt here with vanilla, coconut and caramel. Collectively, the aromatics here point to this being a sweet brew but there are hints of alcohol that burn the nose when too deep of a whiff is taken.

The taste is somewhat sweet as expected with a rich maltiness tasting of something along the lines of creme brulee. Toasted coconut, vanilla and caramel are felt from the barrel aging with a touch of oxidation that comes off mildy like cardboard that fades towards the backend. Alcohol flavors mix with the malt to create a sense of raisins or prunes mid-palate mixing with leather, tobacco and a hint of bitter coffee.

This is a medium to fuller bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is rich and complex but becomes quite numbing across the tongue in a hurry. While colder than ideal, there is quite a bit of enjoyable character to take in. However, as it warms up it really becomes a bugger to put down (like some other big series Avery brews.) There is quite a bit of oxidation evident in this already and while all signs point to aging this, I dont know how I would feel with more oxidative quality present. I liked this and would drink it again but probably opt-in for only a couple of ounces.

Bottle from Harrington Liquors.
Solid black color with a decent sized frothy tan head that shows great retention. Big roasty molasses with complex dark and dried fruit. Earthy with hints of vanilla and sweet bourbon. Light warming alcohol as this pushes down my gullet. Light sherry like oxidation in the finish. Great sipper, alcohol never gets harsh, but this will sure warm you on a cold night.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from the bottle into a elongated tulip glass. Bottled Feb 2014, abv listed as 14.83%.

Comes out like pure dark motor oil, black as night, but fills the glass with a lighter black walnut shade. Head needs aggressive pour but gets about a finger of dark mocha coffee brown and even. Hangs for a bit, but manages a good three to four mm pencil ring that never leaves. Light bubbles of faint cocoa brown rise on the side in supper slow motion struggling it looks like to get up.

For such a large beer even after time the nose is very subtle. Mild tobacco and soft oak wood, even a hint of hickory like smoke but it's surprisingly tiny.

Palate hits large but not overpowering. Giant cherry kirsch and thick dark chocolate sweetness. Large red fruits of dark cherry and raspberry just overpowering fruit quality. Warmth brings out some nice licorice notes, which goes nicely with one of the most impressive qualities on this beer. This has to be the thickest tolerable stout I've had to date. Giant oily and massive palate feel without a syrupy feeling and a controlled sweetness. Huge lip coating qualities while drinking.

As big as this is, it's remarkably controlled with impressive qualities. Surprisingly easy drinking with the high abv as well. Pretty darn impressive, wish there was more of a nose on this though.

12 oz. bottle - Bottled Feb 19, 2016:

Pours very dark brown to black with a thin light brown head that soon becomes a ring. Vanishing trailing lace.

The smell is of bourbon (vanilla/oak), mollasses, dark dried fruit, hint of chocolate.

The taste is of immediate heat. Through the heat/burn is bourbon and some dark fruit. Alcohol shows intensely and raw. Some molasses and dark fruit peek through and does some chocolate as it progresses. Sweetness balanced by drying alcohol.

It is full-bodied. A bit slick from solvent alcohol.

A slow, slow sipper. I expected alcohol to show because of high abv, but this is raw.

Thanks to Chris for sharing this one. Served in an Eclipse snifter.

A - Thin white foam settles to a thin collar, tiny specks of lace. Black body, with glints of brown at the edges.

S - Super sweet and boozy, with nostril-singing alcohol. Some roast, but lots of dark fruits, fudge, toffee, nuts. The booze gets pretty intense as it warms and notes of tar and soy come out.

T - Taste is heavy on dark fruit, soy, some ash, alcohol, dark chocolate, and brown sugar. Finish is pretty alcohol heavy, with some vaguely vodka-esque notes.

M - Smooth texture, medium-full body, some moderate alcohol burn, and a mildly chewy finish. Pretty decent for the style and ABV.

D - It's pretty hard to drink in anything more than 1oz portions. This *might* be good in like 5 years, but it may also be terrible. The sweetness is more off-putting than the alcohol.

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

Poured from a bottle into a snifter, the beer is jet black, with a solid flow of carbonation in the body feeding a creamy, low profile, light tan head. Aromas of bourbon heat and spice, rich vanilla, rich milk chocolate, and subtle coffee. Very strong and balance nose. Flavors are rich milk chocolate forward, with a solid dose of bourbon spice and booze warmth. Vanilla creme and robust coffee highlights, as well as notes of charred wood, molasses, and caramel. Very dynamic, layered palate, but with a creamy smooth overtone that makes it dangerously drinkable. Smooth, rich, creamy, and chewy body, with a milk chocolate and bourbon aftertaste. Smooth, creamy finish, with a lot of heat building up as you drink. This is a beast, but it is damn tasty. Like a cordial or truffle infused with booze. Delicious.

Inch tall mocha head on a dark brown, borderline black body. Splotchy lacing. Cap and collar stick around throughout.

Big chocolate notes in the nose, along with sweet/boozy barrel notes.

More with the cocoa. The bourbon barrel is noticeable but not over-powering. Lingering aftertaste. Wouldn't guess ~17%abv, maybe closer to the 13%
-14% range.

Mouthfeel is on the thicker side. Smooth micro-bubbled carbonation.

Never have I had a beer, barrel aged or otherwise, that has lingered on the tongue for so long after each sip. I'm quite enjoying that aspect. Very nice beer overall.

Poured into a Founders CBS snifter. Jet black color. Smell was heavy roasted malts, mild bourbon, booze. Taste was all malts and booze. Was harsh initially. Wife took a sip and was done. The booze calmed down as it warmed up. Bourbon flavor came out stronger. Chocolate came out as well. Thick and chewy mouthfeel, but not like engine oil. Nice one.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours pitch black with a fine half finger light brown head with great retention and lacing. Delicious aroma of dark caramel and toasted malt, bourbon, dark dried fruit, chocolate truffle. Flavor follows, with dark toasted malt with little char, vanilla, bourbon, molasses, hints of chocolate and coffee, kinda boozy. Heavy bodied, almost syrupy, but with pleasant carbonation. A really nice bourbony imperial stout with complex flavor and perhaps a bit more booziness than expected (common with big Avery beers, I think). But after a few sips, all is forgiven. This seems like a prime candidate for aging and I will do so, if I can ever find more. Man, I love bourbon and beer together.

A: poured a very dark brown in color with a thin brown head that left a little frothy lacing sticking to the glass.

S: lots o sweetness going on in the aroma consisting of molasses, brown sugar, vanilla, but with lots of chocolate. It had bourbon barrel wood qualities, hints of booze and slight maple notes.

T: the bourbon barrel character was more pronounced on the plalate alongside chocolatey, molasses, vanilla, and brown sugar notes but with a touch of booze.

M: the brew was medium to full in body with a moderate amount of carbonation which had a sweet, chocolatey, bourbon boozy, and silky finish.

O: definitely was a solid brew and was glad to try it. Good lookin out on the bottle beezler.

Bottle pour by a nice stranger at the Le Roar Grrrz 2015 release.

This one pours a dark, deep black, absolutely staining the sides of the cup. No head or lacing.

This one smells like chocolate, maple, booze, and honey.

This tastes good for like half an oz before becoming a chore. It's too syrupy, too sweet, and too boozy. There's chocolate, maple syrup, honey, and a ton of biting bitter booze. Not a huge fan, to be quite honest.

This is intensely syrupy, and fairly thick bodied, with a basically no carbonation. Not all that drinkable.

This one suffers the similar problem that almost all of the big ABV Avery beers suffer from. Just too much, and not drinkable in the slightest.

Thanks to Robbie for this bottle!
Bottled on March 27, 2012. Batch #1.
Poured in to CBS snifter.

A - Deep black, dark as night. A thin layer of espresso coloured head formed and quickly reduced to a few scattered bubbles.

S - Massive barrel aromas up front - bourbon, vanilla and oak. The base beer adds a huge chocolate fudge aroma, roast, molasses and dark caramel. Fairly sweet and very decadent nose. The ABV is well hidden.

T - A big hit of alcohol up front that warms the palate before giving way to bourbon and sweet vanilla from the barrels. Charred oak is present as well and mixes with a heavy roast presence as the barrel integrates very well with the base beer. Chocolate fudge, molasses and caramel flavours add to the robust flavour profile. The finish is warming with a a touch of alcohol burn but considering the ABV, it is not overly hot.

M - Full body. Thick and viscous. Sludgy. Light carbonation.

(2013 vintage)

The beer comes in a black color with a coffee brown head.

The aroma immediately hits of bourbon soaked cherries, plums, dark figs. It also has strong notes of 2014 Bourbon County with lots of molasses, dark dark chocolate, and vanilla and bourbon on the back.

On the flavor, again follows of 2014 Bourbon County. A burnt caramel and brown sugar note up front , along with a burst sweetness with dark fruit of sweet cherries, figs, berries. Then onto a theme of bourbon heat, vanilla, a touch of coconut. Then onto a roasty bitterness along with espresso.

The balance of heat, sweetness, and roasted along with the heavy barrel character is incredible. A bit thinner and hotter than Bourbon County, but stands up there with complexity.

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: totally black with a beautiful finger of creamy brown foam atop. Very nice.

Smell: rich, sweet and very fruity with undertones of chocolate and a little roast. Fruity and complex -- they way I love a good imperial stout.

Taste: dusty, dark fruits up front: plum, cherry, dates, plus the requisite moist tobacco. Then there's a big alcoholic heat with more fruitiness and a pretty strong bitterness to hold it all together. Rich, complex and absolutely giant -- what more do you want?

Mouthfeel: big body with a good, well-integrated carbonation and a wonderful, silky-smooth creaminess. Just fantastic.

Overall: this beer comes together wonderfully. What a treat!

Feb 2014 bottle. This is pretty much everything it is advertised to be. Big, boozy, and maybe a little sweeter than I anticipated. Big molasses sweetness. I did miss the coffee aroma and taste and would love to get a fresh bottle in the future.

Poured a black body with one finger tan head that left little lace patches on glass. Aroma is milk chocolate, vanilla, some woodiness along with bits of roasted and coffee malts and possibly dark fruit (swear I'm getting raisins or figs). For a beer with a large ABV percentage, the alcohol is not really present in the aroma nor in the beer itself (kudos to Avery). A rather easy drinking beer considering that it is sticky and heavy, a tongue coater, that is medium bodied and strikes a wonderful harmony between woody smoothness, some vanilla and bourbon sweetness and strength, and some roasted malts along with a smattering of chocolate. In summation, it has a little bit of everything and overall I found this beer to have a dry finish that complements a rather easy-drinking sweet beer. Worth the price (which was a lot).

Received numerous bottles of this from trades and bottle shop pickups. Poured into a Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a deep deep brownish black hue with a nice deep mocha one finger head that fades to leave a very, very thin blanket along the top. VERY impressive for the ABV, very impressive.

S - Surprisingly and shockingly the alcohol is very, very nicely hidden in this. There are some very nice light bourbon and light vanilla and even some coconut. Getting some dark fruits, which I'm not really a fan of.

T - Strong bourbon heat upfront but that is shockingly overtaken by big vanilla and chocolate. ALOT of chocolate. Dark fruits on the finish but its quickly overtaken by some sweetish bourbon and vanilla. Some really, really nice flavours here. Still hot, but that should change over time. Huge chocolate aftertaste.

M - Mouthfeel is great all things considered. That alcohol needs to cool down a bit with age. Its silky smooth though.

O - Overall I enjoyed this beer alot. I think it needs some time to develop into that next step. Glad I've got 6 more to let sit for a while, I think this has potential to become something amazing.

Appears a dense, dark, oil toned opaque ivory. A small tan head slowly fades into a gentle head and collar. Spotty bits of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of molasses, brown sugar, vanilla, bourbon, and cocoa. Crikey...this is rich and boozy off the get-go.
Taste is of the aromas with a raisin juice and molasses and date sugar. Rockabye sweet baby James...this is like a mix of the Beast and Mephistopholes. Lots of booze and prune juice resounding.
Mouthfeel is full bodied, sugary, and boozy.

The bottle being reviewed is a 2012 vintage.

A - Typical stout pour - pitch black, opaque, and a thin toffee colored ring around the top of the snifter.

S - Very bourbon forward, oak, small traces of dark fruit, molasses, and dark roasted chocolate.

T - Follows the nose - extremely bourbon forward with noticeable alcohol warming on the way down. Bourbon, oak, light molasses, a hint of vanilla, some char and oak, and minimal dark fruit in this beast of a sipper from start to finish - a little medicinal on the end.

M - Heavy medium body, sticky, slick.

O - Very well done and I enjoy big barrel aged beers but this one is a little overbearing because the alcohol masks a good portion of the flavor. If it weren't for the alcohol killing the complexity I'd score it higher.

Poured from the Howler(32oz), black brew, minimal head of tan foam that leaves the scene quickly. Cost, $25.99

Nose tells me there's a lot of Bourbon, roasted malt,dark chocolate,pitted fruit, some coffee. Smells uber strong.

Bourbon, chocolate, and roasted malt envelop my palate. With a bit of nudging, the dark fruit..plums & raisins, come out to play. The coffee I mentioned is very very light, err, perhaps I'm not getting any at all; the other flavours are THAT strong and THAT dominant.

The body is on the high end of medium, carbonation checks in as fairly light but there's no mistaking this brew as flat.

Powerful brewski here and though the taste isn't as "hot" as it could be, once it goes down the hatch, it brings a heck of a lot of warming.

As much as I love this beer, I don't feel the need to get more...

Huge thanks to shadowane for picking a bottle of this up for me.

Pours viscous, pitch black and completely opaque with a two finger mocha head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks and spots of lace left behind. My wife said that it looks like tar.

Huge boozy bourbon aroma with a really strong barrel presence complimented by dark roasted malt. The spicy bourbon dominates the nose but doesn't totally overpower. Hints of oak, coconut and vanilla followed by toast, coffee, dark chocolate and oatmeal that come more toward the forefront as it warms. I'm surprised with the high ABV that it doesn't smell like a complete booze bomb.

Medium bodied with a rush of spicy, bourbon that lingers over the sweet and roasted malt notes into a boozy, warm finish. Although the flavor is dominated by bourbon, the barrel character is nicely integrated. Some dry oak, coconut and marshmallow mellow things out but that strong spicy bourbon bite is the star of this beer. I would have thought that it spent more than six months in the barrel. As it warms, a mix of sweet and roasted malt notes come forward. Again, I'm surprised that it's not a complete booze bomb, containing hints of rye, sweet and dark chocolate, caramel, toffee, coffee bean, licorice and dark fruit. The very high ABV is nicely masked with little heat. There is lots of bourbon and sweet alcohol flavor but it's not intrusive at all with some nice warmth in the finish. I was a little skeptical after seeing 17.42% but this is a well crafted decently balanced beer.

A: Poured a deep black color with good carbonation, nice brown cap and medium amount of lacing

S: Licorice, leather, wood, bourbon, booze, and chocolate. Hints of coffee and vanilla are present. The nose is extremely big and complex.

T: Upfront is big chocolate and heat with coffee and roasted malt. Midway vanilla, leather, wood, dark fruits licorice really pickup as does the sweetness. The finish is a bit syrupy, sticky, sweet with more relentless heat.

M: Cloyingly sweet with heat but the body was not to thin and right on the money as was carbonation

O: Drinkability is down, cellar ability is up. I did not finish my bottle but I will say it had much more body than BT or CR. Worth the price.

Super dark black sludge like pour, biggest beer this side of black tuesday or double black. Aroma was boozy, what do you expect, lots of barrel.

Taste was a very nice sipper. Chocolate and bourbon for days. There is plenty of heat. Some leather and oak. Could do without so much of the bitterness and heat ultimately.

Poured into a Dogfish traditional oversized snifter. Label says Bottled Feb 13 2015.

A- Pours a 99% opaque black color with a 1/2 inch medium brown head that retains a bit before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a large center patch of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Big booze fume with a heavy rush of char to go with it. Some woody character and a tad bit of sweetness but it's all stifled by the alcohol and roast.

T- Lots of grainy wood flavor with some bourbon and a touch of vanilla sweetness. Immense char is laid over all of it. There's definitely a lot of booze but not necessarily as much as you would expect from the beer's ABV. Small notes of dark chocolate, molasses and coffee. Once it warms, more vanilla sweetness comes through.

M- Slick and creamy but with a bit of burn in the throat going down. Medium-low carbonation and the fullest of bodies.

O- This is one mammoth of a BA stout. This one was aged for a year but it obviously could withstand a few more. Really good, but ya gotta like 'em real boozy/bourbony.
