Bottle thanks to Kevin. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is roasted malt, vanilla, bourbon, and chocolate. Slick mouthfeel, nice roast, wood, chocolate malt, light booze finish, very nice.

Bottle. The pour is a dark brown with a thin head. The aroma has a nice mellow booziness to it. The taste is really smooth. One of the best 50/50's I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle split with Jenny after she kicked my ass at Strat-o-matic basketball. Moderately thin dark brown pour with rocky tan head. Aroma is heavy of bourbon, notes of warming vanilla, oak sweetness. Flavor hits hard of oak, vanilla, and bourbon. Dark chocolate background balances out the warm, sweet liquor notes. Moderately thin palate with plenty of warm bourbon. The bourbon/oak flavor dominates but is thankfully delicious.

Une bouteille avec de la cire argentée (silver). Vintage 2013. Une bière brune foncée presque noire avec une mousse beige. Un nez de chocolat au lat, sucré avec une touche de bois. Une bouche de chocolat, l’alcool est discret, le boisé est bien intégré. Facile et agréable.

Bottle at James’ for the multi-K tasting. Pours a deep black with a thin tan head. Roast and some wood, chocolate, cocoa, bourbon and vanilla. Big roast, chewy, warm wood and bourbon. Long warm alcohol. Chewy roast. Very nice, if not a bit warm.

UDBeernut (1993) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2014
First bomber of Xmas vacation 2014 pours like the rest of the eclipse I’ve had in the past. Typical strong dark malt nose, some booze also. Taste has strong smokey bourbon, light chocolate. Booze burn, full body but not as creamy as past sampled eclipses.

Vintage 2013. Silver wax. Grosse tunique noire et mousse brune dans les règles de l’art pour ce type de breuvage. Au nez, bourbon, chocolat et vanille, miel, café et sirop d’érable. Ce truc bien alléchant me semble être assez riche merci! Au goût, saveurs de cacao et café vanillé avec du caramel et des noix dans lesquelles apparaît un bourbon boisé flatté par un sucre d’érable. C’est bon mais cela n’est certainement pas destiné aux gens qui surveillent leurs calories. Au palais, un corps qui a une belle rondeur avec un pétillement modéré à bas et une texture soyeuse. Une finale de chocolat noir et de bourbon caramélisé. Une bouteille partagée avec mon ami Yan. Bière appropriée pour le dessert. Le genre de truc que tu veux partager.

DocLock (8331) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Bomber shared at Craft. Dense and thick jet black pour with nose if dark malts, bourbon, oak, molasses. Dense flavor, thivk on the tongue, with more bourbony and malty flavor, plus woody and earthy flavors.

From notes. 2013 Bottle shared by Adam, thanks! Pours dark brown with a scant beige head. Aroma is chocolate and bourbon. Flavor is chocolate, smooth bourbon. I liked the mouthfeel on this one better than the other variants.

The last bottle in the vertical of Eclipse barrel with the Four Roses in my fridge for another day. Big thanks going to Adam on this lineup. Deep roasted aroma with bourbon oak, vanilla and roasted grain. Slightly lighter in body then the other variants with an oily texture over the tongue.
Flavor is pretty much the same as the aromas. Still a very nice Imperial BBA stout but nowhere near my favorite barrel. But still very tasty… quality but not my personal taste.
