22oz waxed bomber pours with a dark mahogany body supporting a mocha head of foam. The aroma offers up booze, roasted malts, chocolate brownie, kind of rye like whiskey notes and then more booze at the end of the draw. The taste hits all at once with dark roasted malts, chocolate, sweet whiskey, a mild tart like rye whiskey note and then earthy booziness. Another sip brings up some mild barrel wood char too. Pretty darn nice.

ClubGonzo (4551) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2015
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.

Thanks to richlikebeer. Pours coal black with aroma of vanilla, chocolate, dark fruit, and whiskey. Sweet flavor with vanilla, molasses, chocolate, and dark fruit with some wood and a solid whiskey background. Great beer!.

"Overpriced? Yes. Really good? Yes. Not top tier like the Grand Cru or ECraig 20, but better than the Evan Williams or Old Fitz easily. Bigger, more dimensions too it - chocolatey, roasty malt. Lots of barrel influence. Vanilla and booze. Don’t think I’ve ever had a wheat whiskey, but this piques my curiosity."
