Bottled. Nearly black with a small head of larger bubbles that don’t stick around particularly long. Big vanilla cola and chocolate aroma. Lots of smooth bourbon barrel flavor with less roast or underlying malt and more straight sweetness than I got out of the 2008. THe body was also a little lighter and not quite satisfying given the other elements of the beer. I did hang on to this for over a year though, and it might have been a bit more substantial when fresh. In any case, a tasty beer, but not the amazing experience that the 2008 was when I first had it.

This is a surprisingly fantastic beer. Really rich and heavy in cocoa, vanilla, oak, coffee, and just enough sweetness. Quite sweet in a good way and really great.

22oz bottle (2011, #3304) from deftim13, thanks man. Clear dark brown with a small fizzy tan head that quickly fades down to a ring. Aroma is black malt, fruity bourbon, chocolate, caramel and oak. Flavor is hot bourbon and alcohol up front, dark roasted coffee and bitter-sweet chocolate. Medium to full body with prickly carbonation. This one is loaded with bourbon, but I like that. Really nice beer.

Very smooth. Pours a black color. Medium aroma. Quite viscous. Not quite as spicy as the Four Roses but a touch better than the Rittenhouse. Well balanced. Not hot at all.

@Basunen: vilken härlig doft av bourbon-fat. Smaken har en mycket god balans. Stora chokladtoner, vanilj, söt bourbon och kaffe. Härlig mjuk eftersmak.

Un brownies liquide avec un glaçage à la vanille et des notes de petits fruits. Le corps soyeux et velouté des eclipse y est encore une fois.
