COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jacob Spears, our 6th Great Grand Uncle, is credited as the first distiller to label his whiskey "Bourbon." He built his distillery in Bourbon County, Kentucky in 1790 - 203 years before began brewing. While obviously a bit too late to produce Uncle Jacobís wash, weíve instead created something far more complex. In his honor, we present this robust, silky smooth, full-bodied and altogether extremely American rendition of an Imperial Stout aged for 6 months in the very finest bourbon barrels. This explains a lot about our penchant for big brews! Itís in our blood!
Brewed with Rocky Mountain Water, Malter Barley, Flaked Oats, Hops and Yeast.

Pours pitch black with a dark brown head. Smells nutty, chocolate, coffee, and of big bourbon flavors. Taste is bold, roasted, bourbon sweetness, chocolate, coffee, and mild molasses. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and super soft mouth-carbonation, Avery Uncle Jacobís Stout finishes with a bold roasted and bourbon notes.

Bottle shared with Labfrogg. Plum, raisin, coffee, a lot like Port aroma. Pours dark black with quickly dissipating tan head that almost boils away. Cascade of flavors. Coffee, bourbon, molasses, dried fruit. Simply amazing. The best beer I have had to date. Thanks, bro.

The best Iíve ever tasted, period. I encountered this fine rarity last June. I bought one and drank it that night. The next day I went back to the store and bought out the entire shelf. The following day I did the same. I guess I purchased 36 bottles of this and I have shared plenty with friends. They seem to have the same opinion I have. The ale improves with age after 6 months.

Scary good. Beware! Huge ABV that is well disguised in this balanced beast of a stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2012 Have tried on tap and from bottle. Big alcohol presence. Less intrusive coffee flavor than is present in Mephistopheles stout and some other big imperials. Almost no head, but itís a dark tan color that wonderfully offsets the black of the beer itself. The complex flavor that makes the backbone of this beer is one of the most impressive Iíve ever experienced, and could maybe only be topped by Founders CBS.

BVery (5969) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle via trade. Super dark thick pour with a reddish brown head. Huge aroma of bourbon, wood, dark chocolate, soy, and some booze. Warming taste with a nice full palate. This is crazy good! Had side-by-side with regular BCS, and it beat BCS (for me). No kidding. Itís that good.

badlizard (5539) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 7, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2012 Bottle at Waldos Pizza. Holy Fuck this is an amazing brew. Black with a thin brown head. Chocolate caramel vanilla bourbon maple and wood aroma. Tastes of candy chocolate bourbon strong vanilla and oak caramel and light toasted coconut all swirling together with a light alcohol burn to the finish. Nice cherry flavors emerge as it warms a bit. Thick sticky and oily palate. Excellent overall.

Well, this may be the new benchmark for brewing enormous stouts. Easily the biggest stout I have tried, and it drinks just as good as a lot of em (that I have rated). The only thing detectable regarding the booze in this guy is the buzz that ensues. Yes, itís very sweet but is balanced incredibly well with a huge roastiness full of coffee, melted candy bar, vanilla, bourbon, wood and bitter dark cocoa. Every time I go back to smell this I get something different. Crazy complex and intriguing on all counts. Viscous mouthfeel with an excellent amount of carbonation. Avery really knocked this out of the park, I am truly wowed. Bottle courtesy of bhensonb. Thank you sir, may I have another?
