3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour black, with a very thin brownish hue, and a huge light off-white head.
Aroma of roasted malts, drak fruits, caramel, slight vanilla, some wood, slight boozy sweet notes. Plenty of goodness in this one. Taste is pretty sweet upfront, with some faint roasty notes towards the end.
Semi-full body, with a perfect amount of flat carb. Big thanks to The Ryan for sending me this.

Bottle at Beer Hunters.
Opaque black color, small off-white head. Aroma is roasted, brandy, less alcoholic than most in the series. Medium-bodied. Toasted, apple flavors, some earthy notes. Alcohol kick in the aftertaste. Interesting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2011 bottle with burgundy wax. Dark brown pour with a nice brown head that lasts a good bit. Aroma is dark fruit and a little chocolate. Sweeter flavor from the brandy is balanced by roasted malt. Definitely on the sweet side but nice. Alcohol is well hidden.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color ale with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of rich black chocolates notes with some light soy sauce notes and quite a bit of residual sugars is different than the other BA Eclipse. Taste is also a good mix between some rich black chocolates notes with some light soy sauce notes with quite a bit of residual sugar notes. Body still has the nice creamy and oily texture with good carbonation. Interesting but I found the sweeter side to his varieties less interesting.
