These are no longer normal times…So why drink something normal especially in 2021?
Stout Stuff (Portland, OR) – In January, Ecliptic Brewing is returning its prized Imperial Stout that was named after the mysterious region of our solar system that breeds comets, along with two additional variations.
Ecliptic Oort Imperial Stout is a rich and full-bodied 9% ABV Imperial Stout that is brewed with massive amounts of roasted barley combined with three types of caramel malts and deftly hopped with Chinook, Cascade and Sterling variations.
Ecliptic Barrel-Aged Oort Imperial Stout is just that, an 11% ABV barrel-aged take on the brewery classic, with resonant bitter chocolate, vanilla and oak notes.
Oort Imperial Stout: Linzer Torte Edition is a brand new variation inspired by the classic Austrian Linzer Torte pastry, this high-octane 9% ABV Stout is toned with real raspberries, lemon zest, cinnamon, cloves and hazelnuts.
All three Oort variations will become available in both draft and 16-ounce cans starting on January 20.
