Thanks to Chance for sharing! The beer is dark brown with very minimal head. The aroma has a big oak presence, even tannic. Roast and chocolate. While the increased abv is well hidden, the beer really runs together with most of the rest of the beers in the series. Bourbon presence is certainly the, but not as bold as I was hoping. Slightly sweet. A bit bland. Low carbonation, almost still. Highly anticipated, this was exciting to try, but not among my favorites of the series.

Again, big thanks to AgentZero for sharing this one. A bit boozy and full of chocolate. Smooth body and easy drinking. Chocolate and booze go well together as it warms.

Bottle share by b3shine. Poured clear dark brown color with an average creamy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt, wood with a alcohol aroma. Median to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet chocolate malt flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

Sample from a 22oz bottle with sky blue wax, shared by b3shine. Bottle #20. Dark brown color, translucent in my glass. Little brown head, some small dots of lace. Oak nose. Big vanilla flavor; honey. Awesome woody malty vanilla / honey nose. Big sweet and bitter taste. Big body, but not viscous. Light carbonation. Huge awesome aftertaste, wood, chocolate, roasty flavor that is enjoyable very long after each sip. Awesome one to savor. Really good, super-interesting beer

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2012 Bomber to taster. Looks good; pitch black with beige lacing. Smells like a malt BOMB! Tastes GOOD! Like it smells with a nice mouthfeel. Oh hell yes!

Bottle shared at Woodshop 7. Deathly black with a dark-tan head. Strong and sweet with plenty of chocolate and a blatant honey note in the middle. Finish is actually rather dry and bitter.

The pour is black as you can get with a tan head. Nose is quite sweet. Brown sugar, molasses, and a hint of licorice. Dark fruit notes, graham cracker, and some vanilla. Thereís a decent roastiness and a little bit of bourbon, too. The flavor is very sweet and sugary. Lots of brown sugar, vanilla, and chocolate. Mild licorice and graham cracker along with bourbon and a hint of oak.

651mL sky blue wax, signed thanks to BMan1113VR at Woodshop 7. Mega whale thanks to Andrew my main man. Murky deep brune pour, weak head, thin ring of bubbles along the glass. Nose is wet dog, dark cherries, saltwater, soy sauce. Decants to heavy brown liquor and barrel. Taste is salty and rich with spicy Mexican dark chocolate. Actually dry and bitter through the finish instead of sugary and oily. Black cherries abound. Not too rich...I was expecting this to be an alcohol and sugar bomb. This really didnít gain much alcohol from eisbocking.

Bottle acquired from Tashbrew. Thanks, Todd. Pours a richly dark and depp colored blackish hue. Some brownish glowing edges and bottom with frothy tannish head. Laces lightly and sticks around. Aromas are gentle dry hops, a touch bitter with mellow spirit and smooth vanilla. Creamy sweet malts with toffee, cocoa, and coffee. Touches of spirit and hops meld into the fold. Initial is medium bodied, a touch heavier with good cocoa and roast, toffee and gentle spirit. Some vanilla, more coffee, firm dry floral and earthy hop bitterness. Grows and bitter into the backend and finish. Middle shows firm cocoa and roast, toffee and mellow. Gentle spirit, oak is more flavorful, vanilla and smoothed out with a richer dry cocoa and hop play. Heat is well hidden. Dry and a touch barrel given. Some gentle heat, firm hops. Tasty beer. Probably one of the better Imperial Eclipse variants. Fair hopping. Great.
