tom10101 (3012) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2013
Bottle (22 oz). Traded by jp7161, thanks Joe! Dark brown with a small beige head and some lacing. Aroma is heavy and full of malt/caramel along with strong bourbon/whiskey and vanilla. There’s also somes notes of chocolate, roasted malt and dark fruits. Taste is on the sweet site with malt/caramel, bourbon, vanilla and dark fruits. Taste is lighter than aroma but still heavy. Heavy body. Low carbonation. This beer is very complex and multi-layered, it’s a really nice blend that I would drink again anytime!

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle generously shared by dschiller @ Woodshed 2.0! Surprised as the style on this one as it shows nearly the amount of fudgy brownie goodness as the Iced Eclipse! Decadent chocolate cake, gooey Hershey’s syrup, and Nestlé Quik! Some mocha found in there also. If you have a sweet tooth but aren’t a fan of tooth decay or overly sweet beers, this ones for you!

Leighton (11641) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London during Jack’s farewell tasting. Thanks to Bruce. Pours deep brown with a thick, creamy yellow-beige head. Toasty bread on the nose, some burnt pine, hints of raisins. Medium to big sweet flavor, plenty of dried dark fruits, brown sugar, raisins, plums, mild chocolate, toasty toffee. Full bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Sweet finish with sturdy offsetting bitter earth, burnt pine, well toasted bread, brown sugar, soft licorice, toffee. Really nice. Quite dynamic.

jethrodium (366) - Berkeley, California, USA - JAN 2, 2013
650 ml bottle. Pours dark cola brown with a small tan head that sticks around for a while and leaves a lot of small spots of lacing on the glass. The aroma is lots of bourbon, some vanilla, coffee, caramel, light coconut, light marshmallow, and some oak. The taste is sweet with bourbon and vanilla, some chocolate, caramel, coffee, and some light coconut. The finish has a bit of coffee as well as some alcohol. Medium body. Low carbonation.
