COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We took our Imperial Stout and put it into 12 bourbon barrels to age for 6 months. 8 of those barrels aged in the cooler, and the end result was named “Eclipse”, and put both on draft and into 22oz bottles . The remaining 4 barrels were aged at room temperature, and though excellent, was not quite the same as Eclipse. We didn’t want to confuse people or brands, so we simply called that beer “Barrel-Aged Stout” and only serve it in draft at the brewpub. It is 9.5% ABV.

At the brew pub, with a sampler. Very dark brown, with minimal dark tan head. Strong nose of bourbon and chocolate, nice! Taste was on the heavy side, with the chocolate and booze leading the way. Very nice for an after dinner drink.

Draught at the brewpub. The board said that this was 9.5%abv. Black with a small tan head. Great aroma that is a rich showcase of bourbon-barrel aging, with lots of caramel, vanilla, dates, raisins, oak, bourbon, and dark cherries. The flavor is heavy on milk chocolate and caramel, but has a dry, woody, bourbony feel with a light alcoholic bite. There is some dried fruit as well before a warming and dry finish. Medium-full bodied with smooth, lower carbonation. Lots of bourbon, but very well integrated. The only thing that I thought held it back was the light tannic astringency in the mouthfeel.
