@Basunen: vilken härlig doft av bourbon-fat. Smaken har en mycket god balans. Stora chokladtoner, vanilj, söt bourbon och kaffe. Härlig mjuk eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

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.

Opened at the end of year Ottawa tasting, 2011 bottle via Capones. Black with a faint light mocha head. Surprisingly smooth, lots of bourbon, oak, vanilla, burnt malt, coffee, chocolate, very nice to drink and glad I could share it with everyone.

Elijah Craig version, sampled side by side with the Heaven Hill Rye version, both thanks to Dak! Dark brown pour with a creamy head. Aroma of roasted malt, bourbon, coffee, dark fruit and vanilla. Flavor is much the same. Roasty and delicious!

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2013 22 oz bottle. BR 1, 2012 bottle. Opened in honor of the Breaking Bad finale. Pours pitch black with a small frothy head that fades to a ring. Great aroma of musty oak, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, toffee, tobacco, and molasses. Taste is moderately sweet and boozy. Lots of bourbon barrel flavor but it’s not harsh at all. Chocolate and caramel come through nicely, especially in the finish. Medium to thick body. This is a really good, smooth, boozy sipper. Nice balance in flavors.

Hard not to love everything about this beer. Seriously, this brewery has mastered the art of whiskey-aged stouts. Aroma and taste both have tons of cherry cordial, toffee, dark chocolate, and molasses. Thick and sweet and hard to get out of your mouth. I want to live next door to this brewery!

Aged for about a year after purchase of the 2011 vintage. So smooth and aromatic. The malted base is delicious and light hops and roasted flavor are intense and well crafted.
