Imperial Eclipse Stout aged in special release Elijah Craig 20 Year Bourbon Barrels

Note from the brewer: The white wax 2011 Eclipse was all 20 year. There was no such brand when we acquired barrels, so we called it 18 year. We have since found out that the 20 year old barrels were dumped for a 20yo Elijah Craig special bottling.

2011 Imperial Eclipse Stout (Elijah Craig 18/20 Year Barrel) = White Wax
2012 Imperial Eclipse Stout (Elijah Craig 20 Year Barrel) = White Wax

maneliquor (3484) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle at Mane Liquor Eclipse tasting. 2012 version. Pours dark brown with a sticky tan head. This is definitely one of the best Eclipse’s of the night if not the best. A bouquet of banana, milk chocoalte, oak, vanilla, honey treacle, coconut and woody spice. Great lengthy spice on the finish. An absolute stunner

50belair (3427) - Florida, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bottle. The sweetest, smoothest, and most mellow bourbon of all of the treatments. I really dig those those caramel malt, vanilla, oak, and dark roasted malts. Good body and mouthfeel. A very nice imperial stout...

thomat (3420) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle @ Halket Very dark brown with no head. Fruity and woody tones. Fruit, vanilla, malt and wood. Full body with a very nice bitter sweet after taste.

mathieuc (3410) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2015
Pours a dark brown with a beige/almost brown rim that leaves some lacing. Nose is of bourbon, vanilla, coffee and alcohol. Taste is on the sweeter side and offers chocolate, vanilla bean, bourbon and alcohol again. Body is full, carbonation soft and mouthfeel is rich and syrupy. Overall a good BA imperial stout, I can’t say I’ve been wow’ed by it but it was still really good.

Vignale (3375) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 17, 2015
Flaska från Brewing International via privatimport till SB. 18y barrel. Massiv kropp, stor söt doft med massor av bourbon, fat, vanilj, russin, fudge, sötlakrits. Silkeslen, ganska söt, kraftig kropp. Mycket bourbon men det tar inte över helt utan grundölet matchar väldigt bra. Stora smaker, fantastiskt gott. Superbt dessertöl.

2011 vintage bottle #5253 Pours pitch black with a lacy creamy tan head. Amazing aroma of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, caramel/ toffee, oak and molasses.

A great barrel aged imp stout.

Silphium (3192) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2013
White wax, bottle #1510, vintage 2011, shared by badnewsbeers. Opaque brown-black body, thin coffee & cream head. Spicy nose with oak, less buttery rum than some of the other vintages, but sharper, with honey, chocolate, and coffee bean. Spicy body, distinctive and sharp, with chocolate, coffee, oak, and licorice/anise, finishing with a nice buttery oak finish. Very good, perhaps my favorite vintage.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Sugary sweet molasses nose. Taste is grossly sweet, lots if molasses and brown sugar, light chocolate. Astringent finish. Not good.
