FiftyFifty Imperial Eclipse Stout - Pappy Van Winkle 23 Year Barrel
Formerly brewed at FiftyFifty Brewing Company
Truckee, California USA
Style: Imperial Stout | Ratings: 97 | Alcohol: 10%
The first bottling of the 2008 vintage came from one barrel... A Pappy Van Winkle barrel that held Bourbon for 23 years. We have 7 more of these barrels ranging in age from 17 to 23 years. The next bottling is a blend of three of these barrels. The blend which will be marked ’2nd bottling’ or something to that effect so they can be identified. The remaining 4 barrels will be split into draft and yet a third bottling. The 2009 Eclipse will be aging longer than the 2008. The 2008 aged for 180 days and the 4 remaining barrels are most likely going to hit 225 days. We are brewing the base Imperial Stout in March allowing us even further aging time prior to it’s mid-December release... The amount produced will increase from 17bbls to 34bbls for ’09.
Several different releases including unwaxed, "Brewers Reserve", Pinkish Wax. Available starting Late Fall 2008.
