"Not my favorite Eclipse, but still very nice. Seems to be quite young, especially with the booziness of the nose. Chocolate abounds as usual and I like old Fitzgerald, even if it is a bit of a one trick pony. More age, or less time in barrels and this goes from very good to great. Gotta say in this instance/barrel, though, not worth the coin."

maneliquor (3210) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle at Mane Liquor Eclipse tasting. 2012 version. Pours dark brown with a sticky tan head. Nose is dried dark fruits, molasses, dark chocolate, honey and oaky vanilla. Taste is quite sweet and vanilla forward with plenty of oak and mild liquorice. Quite earthy and a little dirty. Smooth with a mild cigar-like finish. A light smoke on the finish and it works a treat. Damn good version

UDBeernut (1822) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2014
2012 bottle. Pours dark, thin khaki head that reduces to a ring. Alcohol, chocolate and bourbon in the nose. Taste is bourbon from beginning to end, a quick flash of cocoa midstream. Bourbon lingers in the palate. Body is big but super creamy. Loving these eclipse beers. I think I just need to search out a varrients and be done with it.

rodenbach99 (3244) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
Vintage 1/2012. Bière brune foncée avec une mousse beige durable. Un premier nez d’alcool avec des vapeurs de whiskey. Arrive ensuite le chocolat, un chocolat farcit à l’alcool. La bouche a une belle texture crémeuse. Des saveurs de cerises se mélangent avec le chocolat ce qui lui donne une allure de gâteau forêt noire.
