4/11/13. Bomber thanks to cheesemoose. Side by side with 4 other Eclipses. Krunk. Rich black pour with a small tan head. Bold, hot, boozey whiskey aroma with some roasted malt in there. Rich BA flavor, lots of that corn whiskey, lingers like a shot of whiskey, lingering fudge, coconut, and roasted malt. Nice, but boozey.

Bottle... This beer rocks! Murky dark brown ale with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Decent retention. The nose is very reminiscent of the base beer with only a hint of bourbon. Medium to full-bodied and silky with soft carbonation. The flavor is chocolaty, roasty and a touch smoky. Warming, dark chocolate finish. Not a lot of sourmash whiskey or bourbon here. This is what the base beer wishes it was. Bottle courtesy of ctipping!

50belair (2145) - Florida, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Colin. Another middle of the road treatment with big corn whiskey notes. Still, I dig those those caramel malt, vanilla, oak, and dark roasted malts. Good body and mouthfeel. A very nice imperial stout...

brokensail (10608) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 8, 2013
Bottle @ Oakquinox 2013. Black pour with a tan head. Big roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Some whiskey, a bit of oak, vanilla, and a touch of smoke. The flavor is heavy on the roasted malt and coffee. Dark chocolate, whiskey, vanilla, and light smoke. Mild alcohol heat, oak, and a bit of bitterness.

Skyview Tasting, 2/23/13. The bourbon is well blended in this beer, not overpowering. the aroma also has some coconut. Sweet malt and moderately roasted grain.

solidfunk (3605) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 14, 2013
Nice whiskey aroma here. Some booze. Not quite tasting the corn. At the end of the day most of these are pretty similar. Some booze also, thick and syrupy. Unless they lower the prices, Ive probably had my lifetime fix of this imperial stout no matter what kind of barrel they get a hold of to put it in. Thanks to Sammy and Liam.

A big nose of corn whiskey. Lacey on black body. Smooth, drinker honeyish, syrupy.Chocolate, some burnt malt.Not bad and decent drinkability.Just an average imperial stout overall.Bottle from Premier split with Liam.
