Fifty Fifty Eclipse 2011 Four Roses Single Barrel An American Double/ Imperial Stout. 9.5% ABV 75 IBU.
SMELL: Chocolate, malt, sugar, wood, and brandy.
TASTE: Strong chocolate, bourbon, malt, and wood tones.
DRINK-ABILITY: A excellent stout. This beer is super thick and you can really taste the fact that this beer was aged in a bourbon barrel for 180 days. It is super balanced and has the wood and alcohol flavors of a fine bourbon but not enough to overpower the roasted malt, chocolate, and espresso flavors that you expect in a great stout. I was lucky enough to get this bottle and the rest of the 5 different types of this beer ( Elijah Craig 20 year Barrel , Elijah Craig 12 year Barrel , Brandy Barrel Blend, Rye, and Brewmaster’s Grand Cru Blend ) from Trenton Road Takeout, they still have a couple bottles left of this great beer series if you would like to try it.
RATING: 9 out of 10.
