Bottle sampled at ZEBF 15. Pours very dark brown with a ring tan head. Aroma of roast, vanilla, bourbon, oak barrel, chocolate, cacao, toffee and light coffee. Flavour is light heavy sweet and over moderate bitter. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Lovely!

Flaska systembolaget. Svart vtska med ljusbrunt skum. Doft av fat, knck, choklad och rostad malt. St och kraftfull smak med terigen mycket knckighet. Smrkola, choklad och bourbon. Rund och fin munknsla dr alkoholstyrkan ligger som en vrmande grund. Fantastisk

Bourbon and kahlua so good with balance of chocolate sweetness and dry bourbon character. Mouthfeel thick and rich with the favors of roasted malts and bourbon. Not to boozy but evident.

Az 500. hivatalosan is tesztelt sr egy magamfajta fanatikus szmra nem lehet akrmilyen főzet, gy a szerencss tnyezők jtka, s nmi tudatos kombinci a szmokkal gy alaktotta, hogy ez a 12 ves Elijah Craig hordban rlelt FiftyFifty Eclipse imperial stout lett az. Exkluzv vegről ordt a beltartalom nem mindennapi jellege, letisztult, mgis marknsan karakteres a dizjn. Tlzs nlkl llthatom, hogy illatai valsggal betltik a teret, az a fajta aromagrgeteg, amely a legelemibb mdon idzi fel a hordban trolt ital karaktert. A fajslyos komponensek kevs fsttől tjrt, mennyeien krmes jellegű kkuszos, vanlis, tcsokolds szerkezete megkeni a levegőt, az illatjegyek csods sszhatsa mterekről rezhető, szűnni nem akar a soksznűsg, megkap a kifinomultsg. Egyedisg sugrzik kortyaibl is, klnsen hőfoka emelkedsvel rhető tetten egy kevs gygyvizesen ss jelleg, egyebek mellett azonban gmblyűen telt, mzdes malta prklt le alkotja a kereteit annak a vanlis kkuszmasszban zott, eszpresszs jegyekkel tomptott, whiskey-hangulat italkurizumnak, mely mintegy vgső meglepetsknt les krmkkel kaparsz komlnyomokat hagy htra. Ez utbbi jellemvonst egyesek mr-mr tlzott intenzitst mutatnak is vlhetnk, effle kaliberű imperial stoutok esetn legalbbis nmikpp szokatlan az lmny, azonban srről lvn sz, a keserűsg kidomborodsa nemigen vlhat tlzottan krra az italnak. S hogy a jeles esemny alkalmbl minden rzkszervnknek kijusson a jbl, rdgien csillog teste kt korty kztt a szemnket kprztatja el. Soha rosszabb jubileumot!

This beer is a MUST to try. Aftertaste: good bitterness and very well equilibrium. Coffee caramel and bourbon barrel aged finish. One of the best I try !!!
