4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thick black with little to no head, I poured very slowly as the oil thick fluid was fun to watch.. Aroma has notes of strong caramel, dark fruits (some raisins, dates, prunes), and big molasses notes, slight hint of bourbon but its fairly restrained, slight oak and alcohol. First sip very smooth, with tang of alcohol at the end. Very nice bourbon overtones with caramel, molasses and chocolate. Definitely not a session beer, will need to put some up for a year or two to see how the flavors come together. This almost as good as Goose Island Bourbon Stout in my opinion.

Bottle into a pint glass. Pours black, with a medium tan head that lasts. Nose is dark fruit, bourbon, vanilla, and cocoa. Taste follows, with a boozy finish. Nice.

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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Riktigt svart med ett litet rejält brunt skum, bruna gardiner fäster på insidan av glaset. Enormt mycket bourbon i doften, vanilj och ekfat, plus rejält rostade toner av choklad och kaffe, även aningen rök. Smaken är vinös med massor av vanilj och ekfat och mörk choklad. Munkänslan är tjock och fyllig, lite oljig. En gigantiskt smakrik imperial stout.
