FiftyFifty Imperial Eclipse Stout — Maker’s Mark Barrel (2013)

In this day and age, if a brewery produces an imperial stout it's a virtual given that it will release a barrel-aged version of that beer at some point in the future. Some breweries choose barrels from a favored vintner or distiller and apply a single barrel treatment to their beer roughly once a year. Others vary their suppliers, effectively creating a new beer for consumers whether it be an annual release or part of a running line of limited edition brews. In the case of the FiftyFifty Brewing Co., they've made a yearly event out of aging their popular Imperial Eclipse Stout in multiple barrels for a simultaneous release in 22-ounce bottles.
