A Note on This Beer
At 17.1% ABV, Avery Brewery’s Uncle Jacob Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout shouts from the glass with pure whiskey intentions.
Honoring Avery’s forefathers’ direct link to American craft whiskey, Uncle Jacob has earned a 100 overall and 97 in style on Ratebeer, along with 4.36 on Untappd. This exclusive brew has become an annual tradition for dark beer aficionados and lovers of all things Bourbon.
After resting six months in first-use barrels, Uncle Jacob emerges completely immersed in fresh Bourbon character. Whiskey’s vanilla and spice aroma mingles with roasted barley’s notes of Turkish coffee. Flaked oats and Midnight Wheat silken the mouthfeel, drenched in Westmalle’s world-class yeast character that produces dark fruit hints of blackened figs and caramelized apricots. Seething with heat, Uncle Jacob lives up to its heritage with an unrelenting finish of top-shelf fire.
Miss out on one of the booziest beers around and your buddies will have you in a headlock-- making you trade away every last gem in your cellar just for a taste, until you say Uncle.
