3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

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...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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, I’ve 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.
