Uncle Jacobís Stout is brewed by the Avery Brewing Company


Uncle Jacobís Stout is brewed by the Avery Brewing Company in Boulder, Colorado

In the quest to create a collection of barrel-aged beers to be reproduced annually, Avery Brewing Company is releasing Uncle Jacobís 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 díAmour and Rťcolte Sauvage, the Annual Barrel Series features a selection of cellarable barrel-aged beers that fans can return to and get to know every year.

Beer Review from Beer Advocate:
Appearance: Pours not quite black with a huge frothy dark tan head that refuses to dissipate. As much lacing as huge alcohol legs. Great.

Smell: Just beautiful. Full, boozy, roasted malt and dark fruit. The kind of badass imperial stout the best American breweries used to make, turned up several notches and barrel aged. The oak notes don't so much stand out as highlight all the other huge malt bomb notes. Caramel, raisin, red grapes, rum cake, almond croissants (with marzipan, no bullshit plain croissants with almond shavings on them), telltale (good) oxidation notes like in 10 year old J.W. Lees... I could go on. Not pristinely any of these things, but strongly suggesting all of them and more. This is what big BBA beers aspire to.

Taste: Just like the nose, with big extra notes of molasses and hot booze. Starts oaky with thick pastry flavors, then gets quickly balanced by a boozy flood of savory molasses, brown sugar, raisin, balancingly-bitter roasted malt, elegant vinous feel and flavors enveloped by caramel and coffeecake. The whole affair is sort of propelled along by this coffee ice cream/caramel flavor... it's either the main reiterated and reinterpreted theme of the symphony, or maybe it's the insistent beat or constant rhythm section that mainly characterizes the piece.

Regardless of metaphors, it's delicious. Endlessly complex but never offputting, never out of balance. This is a truly great, world class stout. It's a gift to the beer drinking world that Avery keeps making this beer.

Avery Brewing Company History

Adam Avery, president and head brewmaster of the brewery, incorporated the company in 1993 when craft breweries were just starting to increase in popularity among mainstream beer drinkers. Originally upon its founding the brewery utilized only a seven barrel tank to ferment its beers causing production to be relatively small. In the years since the early to mid-1990s the brewery has expanded significantly to encompass several eighty barrel tanks, two one hundred-twenty barrel unitanks and two outdoor fermentation tanks that can hold two hundred and forty barrels allowing at least eight thousand barrels to be produced per year. The volume of beer produced has allowed the beer to become increasingly available in Colorado, and the rest of the United States as well. In 2015, Avery built a new 100,000 barrels brewery.
