Gription79 (2749) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber capped in 2013. There are the huge chocolate, coffee, roasted malts that are in every Eclipse. The High West barrel makes this have a slightly spicy, caramel, vanilla character. A surprisingly dry finish that is in balance with the rest of the beer, Very nice.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2015
2014 version. Easily the best Eclipse variant I’ve had. Much more body than most in the series. Pours black with light brown head, rich chocolate and dark fruit aroma with definite bourbon and oak. Flavor follows the nose, with a nice rich sweetness that I don’t get from other versions of this beer. Not sure what happened in these barrels, but it managed to improve the beer substantially. This was nice.

[9/24/15] Bottle sample at the pre-Borefts tasting at ABC Beers in Den Haag. Thanks everyone who shared bottles! Black with a light brown head. Great aroma of chocolate, bourbon, cookies. Sweet flavor with chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, cookies, and an alcoholic touch. Full-bodied. Really good.
