COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Eclipse, our Belgo-Style Black IPA is an exquisite fusion of black, roasted chocolate malts, and a generous heap of hops. It’s bitterly aggressive with a roasty quality, fruity esters and a spice scent making this one superior brew.

SirADNielsen (8948) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Tap @ Freshcraft. Deep brown/black appearance with a creamy, dark brown head. Quite sweet caramel/candy/chocolate aroma that’s fairly devoid of hops. Very sweet, candy sugar-like, chocolate, somewhat roasty, mild fruity, anise, belgian yeasty flavor that almost reminds me of a quad or dubbel. Where the fuck are the hops? I can’t taste them. This tastes like a complete mess to me but I guess I’m the exception not the rule.
