FiftyFifty Concentrated Evil (Pre 2011)

Formerly brewed at FiftyFifty Brewing Company
Truckee, California USA
11% · Belgian Strong Ale · 77 Ratings · 24 IBU · Special Release ·
Belgian Strong Dark Ale. Brewed with Raisins, Coconut Sugar, Panusta Sugar.

Limited Bottling in 22oz. bottles. Available in CA and OR. Summer 2010.

Brewers note: There have been two batches of this beer that have been bottled. The first batch can be identified by a BLACK cap. This batch was unfiltered and if kept at 75*F or higher for an extended period continued to attenuate. This caused the raisin component of the beer to come forward and for some folks give a sour taste. The second bottling 11/28/2010 has a GOLD cap. We filtered the beer through 2.45 micron filter sheets and though there will be some yeast the shelf stability of the product will be much better.
