4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Barrel-aged Imperial Stouts are big beers. Uncle Jacob’s Stout skips big and goes straight for monolithic. 17% alcohol and a pour that’s as deep and slow as ink. Huge roasted malt aromas with plenty of bourbon influence: vanilla, oak, cherry, butterscotch, toasted brown sugar, and booze. Flavor brings it forward with some coffee and cocoa coming from the grains. A full-bodied but smooth mouthfeel. It’d be fun to experiment with cellaring this brew and finding its sweet spot. At about any age though this is still going to be a massive Stout - not for the faint of spirit.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A- Cherry, coconut, bourbon, boozy, oak.
A- Black color, black liquid, brown head.
T- Bourbon, coconut, vanilla, boozy, dark fruits, burnt caramel, butterscotch.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, bold finish.
O- Sat on this one for just over a year and probably could have sat on it another year to tame it even more. Very booze/bourbon forward. Crazy expensive too. Maybe a little too bold. If it would mellow out it’d be great. Or even lose the barrel aging. And those are words I never use.
