A Note on This Beer
Happy new year!!
We found a incredibly rare gem to start off the new year for you. Getting your hands on FiftyFifty Brewing’s Eclipse Barrel Aged Series is more scarce an occurrence than witnessing a literal eclipse. The series is featured in Esquire Magazine’s Top Ten Beers You’ll Never Taste where they say finding a rare bottle of Pappy Van Winkle is an easier mission than tracking down these beers.
Well today we get to stick it to Esquire Magazine because we took this quest head on …
Without further adieu, let us introduce you to the spicy chocolate booze soiree that is FiftyFifty’s Eclipse 11% ABV Barrel Aged Imperial Stout, the 2017 Rye Cuvee Edition.
The California brewery takes their multi award winning Totality Imperial Stout, and ages it in rye whiskey barrels for a minimum of 180 days. Over 18 separate ingredients work together to take you on a sensory drinking experience filled with cameos of brown sugar, dark cocoa and vanilla espresso.
This edition is known for being incredibly smooth - notes of spicy rye fuse with honeycomb, leather and bitter gourmet chocolate. Sweetness rises on the palate, reminding you of a soaked caramel fudge cake -- but the whiskey dryness and lacings of bitter coffee control the richness created by these dessert impressions.
The beer itself is a synonym for sophistication and you’re invited into every sip. Share with friends to include them in all these memorable flavors. But more importantly, share it so you can’t be accused of making the whole thing up.
