Oakes (14671) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2016
Cloudy dark brown. Has a tarry and slightly alcoholic note. Sweet, light toffee, and has a bit of almost floral honeyish barrel notes.

650ml bottle from Park Royal at Matt’s place. Aroma is not intensive, but sophisticated though: vanilla, whiskey barrels. Taste is sweetish, roasted malt, bourbon. One more sophisticated Eclipse-product, that is very good balanced.

mcberko (11940) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2016
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out complex bourbon barrels upfront. Flavour is along the same lines, with bourbon dominating, with roast and oak. Complex and full-bodied. Excellent.

fiulijn (17990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2016
Tasting at Matt’s; vintage 2015
Black color, brownish head. Nice chocolatey Imperial Stout, moderately sweet, a bit boozy, less complex than the High West Bourbon though.

JorisPPattyn (9083) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 10, 2016
Comparative tasting of 9 different Eclipse Stout variants. All beers small to rather good yellow-beige rim over jet-black beer Benzene, sake, rice, mirin without acidity. Slight coffee, seriously roasted, sweet, mint, little Bourbon or vanilla to taste. Well-carbonated, point of acidity in the aftertaste, slick, seems not very well bodied - and hence dangerously drinkable.

alexsdad06 (8166) - Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2016
22 oz bottle at a bottle release shared by a kind soul from notes. Pours a dark brown to black color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark fruits, a hint of smoke, bourbon, some vanilla and wood, bourbon barrel doesn’t add quite the same character as the rye barrel, some booze. Still good, just not as good as the rye.

Heather_B (245) - New Hampshire, USA - FEB 19, 2016
2014. Dark brown opaque pour with lingering caramel head. Smells like vanilla and sweet bourbon. Flavor is malty, dense, and sharp bourbon. Mouthfeel is awesome.

UDBeernut (2474) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - FEB 8, 2016
2013 bole, pous he part of any old stout. Strong smoke, oak, vanilla, roasted malt. Full body, motor oil viscosity.

Ferris (10565) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2016
Bottle - Sweet Woody and oak notes with a nice bourbon notes. Jet black with a nice brown head. Sweet, cocoa, bourbon, bit of coconut and nice heat in the throat.
