fiulijn (18390) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2016
Tasting at Matt’s; vintage 2015
Black color, brown compact head. Pungent coffee aroma. The dark caramel and some chocolate flavor, with moderate sweetness, are stronger than the coffee; dark biscuits; a bit boozy.
Well constructed, nice.

beerplace (413) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2016
650ml bottle from Park Royal at Matt’s place. Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a tan head. Aroma is roasty, coffee (Arabica style). Taste is sweety, coffee, chocolate, veeery smooth and sophisticated. Burnt malt, coffee, dark chocolate aftertaste. Good stuff, very good balanced, but overpriced though.

mcberko (12863) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2016
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is intense, with loads of dark espresso and bourbon barrels duking it out for frontrunner. Flavour is along the same lines, with lots of dark fruits, coffee, and medium bourbon barrels. Well-integrated, with a great balance of fruity coffee and bourbon barrels. Not especially exquisite, but for what it is, it’s very good. Not worth the price, but it’s excellent.

Gerbeer (2972) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
2015 Vintage. 650 ml bottle. Pours black with moderate brown/tan head. Aromas of acidic fresh ground coffee, green oak, whiskey, roasted malts and raw alcohol. Flavors of dry black coffee, vanilla, light scotch, toasted oak, and dark bitter chocolate. Still a bit of an ABV edge but otherwise excellent.

JorisPPattyn (9242) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2016
Comparative tasting of 9 different Eclipse Stout variants. All beers small to rather good yellow-beige rim over jet-black beer Pure coffee nose, roasted, coffeebeans. Flavour repeats the nose, resulting in a rather low appreciation, as I don’t like coffee as a drink - and that’s what this is, plus a serious dose of alcohol, and the accessory heat. Other flavours overpowerd by the coffee.Quite well-bodied, see also the other variants. My least favourite Eclipse so far.

22 oz bottle shared with the group. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee that is more subdued than I expected, caramel, earthy, brown sugar, wood, I thought it carried the abv nicely, some bitterness to the finish, solid beer.
