bhensonb (11138) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 5, 2013
Bomber from Nugget Market in Davis, CA. Pours very dark brown with a slight foamy dark tan head. Aroma of rich dark malt, bourbon and alcohol. Med + body. Flavor is whisky - something a bit different from bourbon somehow- bourbon, chocolate, dark fruit and I could even say anise. The alcohol nose persists, and so does the "whiskey" aspect. Oak/wood is very low key. For some reason this is a much easier drinker than most of the Eclipse versions. Way too easy.

brokensail (11008) - 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.

Tmoney99 (10720) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt and bourbon wood aroma. Medium to full body and smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark sweet flavor with a medium to heavy complex bourbon sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectations and could be a standout with some age.

hopscotch (9171) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2013
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!

adnielsen (9134) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Bottle @ Matt’s house, courtesy of arminjewell. Thanks! Pours a thick black appearance with a dark brown head. Boozy, rich whiskey, vanilla, ethanol aroma. Whiskey, chocolate, caramel, boozy, veggie herbal flavor. This doesn’t live up to the rest of the series, dammit.

daknole (9128) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Nearly black pour with a brown head. Roasty aroma, very light barrels. Some charred oak, interesting whiskey aroma. Flavor reminds me much more of the base beer than a rich fudge bomb with the normal vanilla, toffee and coconut flavors you get. Lots of roast, earthy bitterness, some dark chocolate.

22oz bottle. Gold Wax. Poured a dark brown, almost black, color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, wood, earthy, roast, and some whiskey. Tastes of caramel, whiskey (more than the aroma), caramel, wood, and vanilla. Alcohol content well hidden.
