4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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 Dan’s 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 Bruce’s 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!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a dark cola brown color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor has roasted malt, dark chocolate, barrel notes, caramel, some earthy bitterness and some booze. The only negative is the medium light body. I would like to see this a bit more full bodied.
