Avery Annual Barrel Series Uncle Jacob's Stout Batch No. 7

Cellar Selection

This imperial stout that's aged six months in Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels is not for the faint of heart. It's a potent and powerful brew, and one that has the stuffing to cellar nicely for the next 3–5 years, if not longer. Currently, it's intense in aroma and flavor, with assertive and warming notes of vanilla bean, raisin, prune, date, molasses, burnt brown bread and oodles of toasty, oaky spice. Medium-plus in body, it's slightly viscous on the palate, with medium carbonation to lift the slick mouthfeel and a pronounced warmth that remains through the close. Final flavors of bittersweet cocoa and baking spice linger long on the finish. Lauren Buzzeo
