look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

base beer for the Fiftyfifty IS series, on tap at The Blue Palm. Very dry. A small retained head on a very dark body. So-so drinkability as very roasty and a bit astringent. Roasty aroma. Thick lace. Good for the style, but not great. Have to get by the dryness. (262 characters)

On tap at Blue Palms Brewhouse in Los Angeles, CA as part of the FiftyFifty Eclipse Release Party.

Pours an opaque black with a 1/2 inch khaki head that fades to nothing. No lacing on this one. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, and some vanilla aromas. Taste is of dark roasted malt, bitter cocoa, and some vanilla notes. A mild roasty bitterness lingers on the palate after each sip. This beer has a crisp level of carbonation with a dry finish. Overall, this is a good stout by itself but I prefer the barrel aged versions much more. (547 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

On tap at FiftyFifty, served in a brandy snifter.

Black with a dense mocha head that shows strong retention and sticky lacing, this is a great looking beer.

Licorice and espresso are prominent on the nose. Chocolate fudge and cookie dough lend some sweetness, but this is more of a bitter, earthy imperial stout.

The first sip makes me think of chocolate covered coffee beans. Further imbibing brings out licorice, charred malt, firm bitterness both from dark malt and hops. Medium in body, not particularly sweet. The finish is heavily roasted, quite bitter and sticky. With this as a base beer I can see why Eclipse is so good. (632 characters)

On-tap at Blue Palms

A: The beer pours almost black with a very small tan head to go with it.

S: First thing I pick up on is a distinct sourness. Acrid, roasted malts and coffee follow, as well as a mild char. There is a light chocolate aroma with a slight molasses and toffee sweetness.

T: A very sight sweetness to start, but the sourness and acridity of the roast follow shortly behind. There is a mild cocoa note as well as some coffee. A touch of molasses and licorice.

M: The body is sort of light and watery for an imperial stout. Medium carbonation, however.

O: Really disappointing as I was looking forward to trying this, given my enjoyment of the barrel aged versions. (684 characters)

I had this on-tap at Capone's during Philly beer week. Served in a sample glass.

Appearance: The beer pours a black color with hardly any head. The head that is there goes away quickly.

Smell: This beer smells quite sweet and very roasty. I'm getting some warm alcohol and dark fruit.

Taste: Sweet and roasty with some dark fruit and brown sugar notes. I'm getting a slight bitterness with vanilla and dark chocolate notes as well. Complex and easy to drink.

Mouthfeel: The body is thick and there isn't enough carbonation. The finish is dry.

Overall: This is a very nice stout and I can see why it holds up so well to barrel aging. I would have another. (659 characters)

First had: on tap at Capone's, Norristown, PA

This was a decent beer, but considering how good the barrel-aged versions are, I was a bit let down by this one. As far as appearance goes, this one really can't be beat: served in a snifter, a dark, opaque, brown-black, with an overflowing, creamy head that looked like melted chocolate ice cream. No problem giving a perfect 5 for that. Aroma is pretty standard for a stout, dark roasty malts and bakers' chocolate. Taste was similar, roast conquers all, dark malts, slightly bitter chocolate, caramel, nutshells, and distant dark fruits. This beer needs to be aged on bourbon barrels, essentially. It's almost like it's literally incomplete without it. Body is on the heavier side of medium, and still fairly smooth. Not bad by any means, but compared to the Eclipses, it just doesn't stack up. (844 characters)

Really excited for this one. I'm making a point of trying this before the Eclipse beers just for a point of reference. Acquired for $14.00 at a local bottle shop. 9.5% ABV according to my bottle. No best before/bottled on date is visible. 1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with appealing artful label and standard unbranded pry-off cap served into a Mitchells of Lancaster flared stem-tulip in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are high.

Served cold and allowed to warm over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a healthy half-finger head of lovely stick smooth complexion; great vibrance to the colour on this one, I mean it fucking shines. Lovely creaminess. Good thickness. Nice frothiness. Supple and luscious. Really looking great. Nice even consistent lacing as the head recedes. Quite a nice head. The retention could be better, but it's quite good for the ABV - about 3-4 minutes.

Body colour is an opaque solid dark black. Not quite a jet black, but quite dark. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Right on the money for the style, with an attractive head. Quite inviting. Can't wait to try it.

Sm: Chocolate, dried grape/raisin, burnt caramel, light molasses, licorice/anise (which I can't personally stand in an imperial stout), milky notes, cream, light buried (much to my chagrin) roast, and some lightly acrid coffee. Cocoa powder. Some buried vanilla. Dark malts, chocolate malt, maybe some caramalt. No yeast character, hop character, or alcohol is detectable. On the sweeter side. Light earthiness wafts off the body. A pleasant aroma of mild strength. Not exemplary for the style, but overall it's appealing.

T: Hm. Some light earthiness and acridity towards the back end. Tolerable licorice as an undertone throughout. The body is comprised mainly of chocolate malt and dark malts. Body is pretty meh overall. No yeast character or hop character comes through. What shocks me is how well it hides its ABV; drinks more like 6-7% than 9.5. Some marshmallow. Not getting any roastiness - either from roasted barley or from the coffee - which is itself mainly bitter but not overly so. Chocolate isn't very evocative; more baker's or brewer's chocolate than a silky milk chocolate. Some cocoa dust, sure. A biteen of vanilla, but it's mostly covered by the somewhat heavy handed malty base. Very very light restrained espresso. Some cookie dough notes. Not getting any dark fruits or anything like that.

Overall, it's messy but enjoyable. Not much balance or subtlety here, but there's a lot going on - even if it does feel haphazardly tossed together.

Depth and intensity of flavour are average. Duration of flavour is also pretty average for the style.

I didn't notice honey when going through my initial review blind. When I read the label and search for it, I do find it, but I'm not convinced it really improves the beer.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Some nice creaminess. Unrefreshing. Good thickness; it's not overbearing or viscous like many beers in the style. Suits the flavour profile nicely, but doesn't come off custom-tailored specificially to it. Good carbonation. Pretty full-bodied. Sticky. Nicely soft. Not oily, harsh, biting, or gushed. Good presence on the palate.

The rolling smoothness is quite good for the style; I'm curious if they don't brew this with oats?

Dr: Barrel aging must really even this out if the Eclipse series is so well regarded. I'm interested to see what happens to this base with barrels; that's quite convenient since I have the Elijah Craig 12 year on hand. An interesting brew from FiftyFifty, but I'm not convinced it's worth the price. It's drinkable, though, especially for the high ABV which is well concealed. I see potential in this, but I'm doubting I'm going to love Eclipse. The barrel aging would have to really develop and complement this base to make a great beer. I definitely wouldn't buy this again at its current price; maybe for $7.00-$8.00 a bottle.

I'm unsure what to make of it overall. Regarding it aside from the obvious relationship to its famous barrel aged grandpas, I still think it's pretty good stuff. But it does seem strangely neutral and noncommittal to its flavours; I feel like it was brewed with an eye towards barrel aging it, and as a result it's nowhere near as rich or evocative as it could (should?) be.

The acridity and earthiness fade substantially as it warms, leaving a more enjoyable brew.

Drank fine out of a stem-tulip, but a snifter or teku would be ideal methinks.

Big thanks to yourefragile for sharing this at our big Eclipse tasting; thanks Michael. Poured into a pint glass.

a - Pours a pitch black color with one inch of dark tan head and low carbonation evident.

s - Smells of chocolate, roasted malts, sweet dark fruits, toasted malts, and some light coffee. Very roasty, nice nose.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, bitter chocolate, sweet chocolate, coffee, toasted and burnt malts, and some light cream. Little bit of bitterness but pretty nice.

m - Medium body and low carbonation. Pretty easy to drink beer.

o - Overall a very nice stout; can see how it is a very good base for the Eclipse variations. Lots of roasted malts and some light nice chocolate; would like to have it again. (730 characters)

Served on-tap at Capone's during PBW 2012. Finally get to try the base beer for all these Eclipse beers.

A - Pours black as night with a decent one finger tall tan head leaving spotty trails of lace down parts of the glass.

S - Smells of lots of chocolatey sweetness, dark roasted malt, molasses, licorice, dark fruits and a fair amount of booze.

T - Starts off with plenty of chocolatey sweetness slowly giving way to hints of dark fruits, molasses, licorice, day old coffee and the ever present dark malt. Finish is pretty sweet with quite a bit of booze, lingering on the palate long after consumption.

M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. This one is big and boozy, I could feel all 10% of this one throughout the glass.

O - I have wanted to try this one ever since I tried my first Eclipse beer. It is always nice to see where all the flavors are coming from in those BA beers. Overall this is a good stout, but I prefer it once it has seen a barrel. (976 characters)

Growler shared by yourefragile, thanks! Provides a valuable comparison with the other BA Eclipses. Really appreciate it. Served in a FiftyFifty glass.

Beer is dark brown / black with a thin tan head of small bubbles, some lacing, low retention, moderate to low carbonation.

Beer has a mixtures of sweet and roasty aroma, smells pretty good.

Beer is medium in body and mildly sweet up front, a little earthy in the middle and REALLY bitter on the end with the roast, seriously strong on the end, wow...really strong. Did I mention the bitterness from the roast? While it is strong it is not overpowering. I did enjoy this beer and I would have it again on draft sometime. (674 characters)

Being a fan of the barrel aged treatments of this brew, I was anxious to get a chance to try this raw, uncut version of the base. Thanks to BA anotherjoe for making this happen dueing one of our exchanges. Poured from a bomber into an eclipse snifter. The brew appears black in color with a thin brown to ruby clarity around the edges. A rich tan finger slowly fades to a film leaving patchy lace on the glass.

The aroma includes notes of raisin, plums, molasses and hints of citrus mixed with minerals and earth. A suggestion of stale coffee blends into more of a deep earthen and roast aspect like tobacco.

The flavor is quite bitter with a hint of unsweetned baker's chocolate, stale coffee, raisins, and tobacco. Almost a bitter tannic oak aspect even though this isnt barrel aged. It is earthy with a mineral component that isnt entirely enjoyable coupled with a bit too much focus on bitter herbal hops. There is a lot of char goin on in this brew to really drive home the bitter and aggressive flavoring.

This is a medium to lighter bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is interesting to say the least. I can see why this is a good candidate for barrel aging. It is a little rough around the edges that surely gets blended and smoothed out with some aging. Overall I gotta admit, on it's own it is a little harsh and not something I would revisit. However, tossing this in barrels really transforms it into something special. Fans of the eclipse series owe it to themselves to seek this out for comparison. (1,531 characters)

Growler shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael!

The beer is near black with a thin, mocha colored head. The aroma brings heavy roast, bready malts. The flavor is very dark, roasty, some bitterness, most notably in the finish. Chocolate and roast, with some brown bread. Smooth on the palate, with fairly low carbonation, which is likely attributed to the growler format. Overall, this was solid, though I prefer the barrel-aged FiftyFifty beers to this one. I'd have this again, especially if I had the opportunity to sample it on draft. (538 characters)

10/17/09- Growler purchased at Firtyfifty Brewing Company.

Presentation- Via the growler into a Duvel style glass.

Appearance- Super black in appearance. Head is slight, maybe at a 1/3 of an inch. Lacing is light, but has some streaks and lines. Looks quite thick.

Smell- Nose of roated malts, light coffee beans and a large nose of dark chocolate.

Taste- Huge chocolate malt presence. Coffee is limited, but chocolate carries the show. Hops are there, but fade out the more you drink.

Mouthfeel- Pretty damn smooth with a lower carbonation level. Light hoppy finish, thick and chewy. Feels like more than 10% in mouthfeel, but doesn't hit hard like a 10% beer.

Drinkability- This is a pretty much the same beer as their award winning Total Esclipe, but they changed the name to match the Oatmeal and upped the abv a tad. Pretty sure this isn't an Imperial Oatmeal...at least they didn't mention that it was. (927 characters)

On Tap at Tapestry in Philly. $9 Tulip. My first offering from Eclipse

A- Totality is a black stout with a nice sturdy 1/2 inch tan head that left some spotty lacing. Good retention on the cap.

S- This stout has a big roasted malt base to it with some chocolate and dark fruits with warming. No sign of the alcohol which is nice. Smells very robust.

T- A tasty stout with more of the chocolate and cocco coming through more than the smell. Also getting just a bit of tootsie roll as well. Roasted malts and not as much hops than expected.

M- Totality comes through the gullet pretty easy like. Not the smoothest stout out there. This one is a step above medium bodied with light carbonation. Just a hint of the alcohol comes through with some heat. No bitterness as the hops are low, or have faded. Not as big, bold, full as other stouts, but the slight lightness is built to make that Eclipse barrel varients.

D- Could have drank a lot of this. Not very hot, not to big, yet, in the end, it's just a stout. The alcohol while not sessionable is not terribly high either which helped out also. I finished my portion in no time (1,131 characters)

On-tap at Beachwood II,

A: Pours a super dark brown with a mild white head. Solid retention and lace.

S: Not that much, a bit of roast and baker's chocolate. A bit acrid.

T: Baker's chocolate, not a lot of sweetness to this brew. Some dark fruit, but it is fairly bland, not exciting me.

M: Medium-bodied, dry for sure. Frothy, soft carbonation.

O: I thought it'd be fun to try the base beer for the Eclipses and see how it'd compare. It was an interesting experience, but this brew just wasn't doing it for me. The barrel aging is clearly necessary as it's hard for this beer to stand on it's own when there's so many great examples of the style out there. (662 characters)

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with some transparency. Not much of a head. Thin khaki collar. Wispy on the surface.

Smell - Lots of black patent malt, molasses, and even some honey. Chocolatey.

Taste - Sweet, nice chocolate flavor. Lots of honey. Very sweet. Bitter dark chocolate in the back.

Mouthfeel - Highly carbonated. Not quite creamy. Kind of a sharp finish. No booze.

Overall - Tasty and a nice start to our Eclipse tasting. (463 characters)

"Cugel shook his head wearily, checked the darting lights once again. Without ambiguity they directed him back the way he had come. Pharesm's calculations, after all, had been accurate. He had best act with decision, lest TOTALITY once more drift beyond his reach."

12/25/2011

A growler of TOTALITY into a snifter.

A: Black as pitch it seems, but examined in the light it's a very dark shade of brown. The hard pour from the growler yields a diminutive light brown head that fades in an instant. There's some scattered lacing.

S: Dark chocolate accompanies lighter notes of caramel and roasted malt. Molasses and licorice are pronounced, and earth wafts from TOTALITY. Dark fruits are restrained and coffee is faint.

T: Bitter dark chocolate meets robust roasted grains and notes of black licorice. There's a moderate earthy bitterness and a dash of booze. Coffee is very light. The finish is bitter with a pronounced roastiness, evident anise, and a little char.

M: The beer is full in body with low carbonation. The mouthfeel is sticky and smooth.

Overall: An enjoyable beer, though a little more licorice than I prefer in the style. TOTALITY is a respectable base beer for Eclipse. (1,191 characters)

Ah yes, another vote for "this is better w/o" aging it in a bunch of whiskey barrels" gimmick.

Amazing jet black appearance, no floaties, cherry cola top to die for. Bitter aroma, lacking the chococoffee effect you come to expect in this style.

The lack of barrel aging allows the bitterness and hops to take main stage, while the chococoffee feel stays in the background. Extremely smooth for high bitterness. Maybe not as thick as it looks, but if this beer don't hide the alcohol, I don't know which one does.

Drinkability is almost a perfect 5. At $7 a pint, its not atrocious, and maybe even seems cheap, since they charge $20-22 for the barrel aged version. Skip that stuff, buy 3 pints of this instead of 1 bomber of that stuff. This could be the best version overall, but especially from a value perspective. I dunno why people hate the base, I love it.

OK 50/50, you make a dank ryepa, and a dank imperial stout. . . let's get that rye stout ready for winter. (973 characters)

on tap at tapestry in philly

Pours a viscous, completely inky blackness with a pleasant coating of darkly tanned head resting on top. Retains with oily slick film and some spots and patches of lacing on the glass while drinking.

Bold, roasted dark malts in the nose with some charred edges. Dark chocolate with bitterness and faint smoke, a hint of warmth with a dash of dark fruit and a suggestion of anise.

Robust and full flavored up front – this one wastes no time – waves of malt flavor with dark chocolate and molasses. Dark fruit complexity kicks in with an underlying hint of licorice. I felt a light charred notion was present somewhere in there, along with a tuft of smoke. Boozy and warm towards the finish, with a lingering note of hops.

Full body, decent carbonation, chewy and creamy on the tongue. Drinking this is a great example as to why the Eclipse stouts are so tasty. (900 characters)

Pour is jet black with a dark caramel head and lots of large bubbles. Nose is roast, olive, touch of marker, a hint ashy, and notes of chocolate cake. Taste has light roast, cake is brighter, lots of bakers chocolate and some malt sweetness. the magic marker is gone. Creamy full body, good carbonation and a lingering roasted bitterness trough the finish. (356 characters)

Draft, City Beer Store. I had a taste from a growler a few days ago (courtesy of beddachedda), but finding it on tap so soon afterward is clearly a sign that I should write a review. Appearance-wise, Totality has a black body with a nice beige head. In the aroma, there's a ton of chocolate, lots of brown sugar and molasses, some coffee and roast, and touches of hops that make a stronger appearance in the flavor. It's a medium sweet beer that seems well-suited for barrel-aging, unsurprisingly. The finish has very good hop bitterness to reign in the sweet malt. Feel is fairly thick and smooth. A very good imperial stout that gets a lot better with some time in the barrel. (678 characters)

Many thanks to analogchainsaw for this bottle; I have been lusting after the base beer of the Eclipse series since I had my first sip. 22 oz. bottle split with my wife.

Trickle is dark black, with minimal carbonation. The nose, good guns, the nose issues forth like a Spartan from the Hot Gates. Beautiful roast, underlying molasses sweetness, licorice, dark fruits. Bloody gorgeous.

Totality proves what I always figured: the base beer kicks in Technicolor. Big notes of shriveled grapes, great heapings of roast loveliness greet the palate & overwhelm the senses. Mid-palate comes lesser beings of dark malts, sweetness, again that almost molasses-like sensation, chocolate, licorice. Ends with a blur of complexity & with me sucking at this like the bottle is a teat.

I'll go lick the lip of the bottle once I'm done with my glass & wish I had another. Totality see where Eclipse gets my love, because this is an excellent stout. (938 characters)

A: Black with thin dense tan head that left spotty lace down the glass.
S: Smokey and roasted nose, hints of chocolate.
T: Smokey and roasted like the nose. Toasted marshmallow and caramel with chocolate in the finish. Roasted malts fill the aftertaste. Smooth.

S: A lot of european rye bread, cocoa powder, molasses, maybe some raw honey and roasted malt.

T: Opens dark with roasted malt and burnt chocolate. Molasses, some wet earth and some burnt wood on the finish. Maybe a touch of earthy hops as well in the finish. Interesting, but nowhere near as good as the barrel aged varieties. (448 characters)

On Tap

Tony's Darts Away
Burbank, CA

Incredibly dark brown, but just not black. Dark brown head and lots of cling left to the glass.

Classic big stout aroma of roasted malts, coffee, dark fruits, some mild chocolate, though leaning toward sweet chocolate as opposed to bitter, throughout, and just the slightest tinge of alcohol.

Flavors follow the nose and consist of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, and sweet molasses. Tasty and very easy to drink.

Thick, full, luscious mouthfeel.

A terrific big stout. I'm glad I got to try this one (again?). (553 characters)
