Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a pitch black body with a large creamy light beige head. Nose is cocoa, chocolate, coffee, caramel and hints of licorice, biscuits, vanilla and grains. Taste is cold coffee, vanilla, chocolate, cocoa, wheat, grains, syrup and hints of espresso, whisky, caramel and deep malty notes. Full body, medium to soft carbonation. Lingering cocoa tastyness, this is really good stuff and perhaps the best from the Eclipse series so far.
