COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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

Vignale (4124) - 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.

mathieuc (4000) - 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.
