Oakes (14963) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2016
Dark brown with some yeastiness. Bubbly head. Has a rich tarry character with a hint of peachy fruitiness. Has a chewy coffee richness with a tarry note. Nice complexity, and ultimately this has a really nice sugary sweet.

650ml bottle from Park Royal at Matt’s place. Pours a dark mahogany with a tan head. Aroma and taste are complex with vanilla, whiskey barrels notes, roasted and burnt malt. Burnt malt aftertaste. Very sophisticated, very well done and good balanced.

fiulijn (18423) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2016
Tasting at Matt’s; vintage 2015
Black color, beige head. A good Imperial Stout, nice chocolate flavor, moderate sweetness, a bit spicy (is this the rye?), but also quite boozy.
Nice.

mcberko (12996) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2016
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out lots of rye whiskey notes upfront, followed by roast and a touch of smoke from the whiskey. Flavour is very complex, with whiskey barrels upfront, a bit of earthy rye, and roast. Wonderfully integrated, with excellent barrel quality. Really nice.

JorisPPattyn (9242) - 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 Bit of coffee, alcohol, vanilla, oak. Sweet vanilla flavour with black chocolate, the chocolate getting hotter and more obvious retronasal. Alcoholheat, full-bodied, alcoholthinning in the MF. Deceptively light impression, one to sip with caution.
