bottle thanks for Dak, thanks man! Tons and tons of molasses, honey, and dark sugar syrup. Tasted like a jar of barrel aged molasses! I was very tempted to unICE it with my water glass. Lots of flavors in there but i canít get past the rampant sweetness. Itís hurting my teeth.

pours dark brown nearly black, minimal head. Great aroma of bourbon and vanilla, chocolate. Taste is rich vanilla, oak, bourbon, dark fruit. Eclipse definitely plays a role here but this has a slightly different sweetness owed to the ice treatment. Quite enjoyable, glad I let this one sit a bit. Drinking incredible at this point.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at Danís Birthday Tasting (Lyons, IL). Pours a richer blackish pour, good haziness, with a nice brownish glow on the edges. A frothy tannish head is a decent size, sits around and laces ok. Aromas are gentle cocoa, toast and toffee. Some gentle spirit, oak, and vanilla. A bit sweeter and sticky. Initial is firmer, medium bodied, a touch heavier with cocoa, toffee, and toast. Decent spirit. A bit of a condensed sweeter element hangs around. Some oatmeal, black malts, some toffee and toast. Vanilla, gentle spirit. Middle is a bit fuzzy, warm and spirit driven. A bit warm, some gentle carmelization and toast, toffee, coffee roast into the backend. Some roast, toast, a bit harsher and dry, warmth as we finish. Nice beer, a bit warm. The Iced element thickens it up a bit. Nice.

Tasting at Bruceís pad. Opaque dark brown beer, big tan head. Softish palate, a little dry. Fine carbonation. Not getting a huge amount of difference from the regular Bart! Perhaps a little more spicy. So very nice again!
