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

Bottle shared @ tasting. Massive thanks to Bytemesis for sending me this. White wax, 2011 vintage. Pours a pitch black beer with a medium sized beige head on top. Aroma has vanilla on top, caramel and toffee, roasted malts and touches of chocolate. Flavor is very sweet with big touches of red fruits, chocolate, massive vanilla and caramel. The boozyness from the other versions has faded in the background which is incredibly nice. Not sure if it’s the age or the different barrel. Doesn’t really matter, this is an incredible beer for sure!

2012 bottle pours just like all the other eclipses I've had: dark, khaki head. Bourbon is muted in nose but displays some chocolate. Mouth adds nut and vanilla. More cocoa. Big creamy body.

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

Cunningham (7986) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
Thick oily black body with a small beige head. Powerful nice aroma. Chocolate, oak, vanilla and a bit fruity. Oh yeah I can sip on this all evening. What a lovely brew. Nice balance. Chocolate, bourbon, oak, vanilla and mild fruity flavor. More please. Dangerously well masked alcohol. White wax.

Bottle. Pours inky black, small brown head, good lacing. Aroma is bourbon forward, vanilla, chocolate, roasty. Flavor is fairly bourbon forward, rich and chocolate, vanilla, touch of toasted coconut. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. A bit hot, but otherwise stellar.

Vignale (3832) - 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.

Flaska från Brewing International via privatimport till SB. 18y barrel. 2012. Smak och doft av choklad, kaffe, vanilj, bourbon, marsipan, romrussin och fat. Rund och len, fin beska, stor sötma, kraftfull och karaktär i smakerna, välbalanserad. Riktigt gott!
