2012 bottle. Pours a deep brown with a tan head. Nose is roast, booze, marshmallow, wood, vanilla, bourbon, chocolate, and some honey. Flavor is similar with honey and chocolate up front, some light booze and honey in the mid, and booze, oak, chocolate, and bourbon on the finish with a wood and chocolate lingering. Light to medium in body and interesting overall.

DTM (783) - Winters, California, USA - JAN 14, 2014
2007 vintage on tap at the Eclipse release in Truckee. Another fantastic eclipse beer. I don't think I've had a bad one yet. The only drawback was low carbonation. I'm thinking the 6 years in a keg could have contributed to it. Still a great brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22, capped and waxed. Thanks, J! Pours a nearly-opaque black with dark amber edges in the light. Loose, dense, creamy tan head that falls fairly quickly away. Big earthy roasty nose, some chocolate, some wood, lots of toasty malts. Thick sticky body. Earth, peanuts, coffee, baking chocolate, toast, and oak on the mid palate. Long earthy finish.

Klugs out a motor oil color with a short mocha colored head. Vanilla, coconut, and charred barrel bourbon nose. Viscous, creamy mouthfeel. Chocolate flavor immediately. Some coconut and vanilla. Plenty of bourbon and alcohol flavor emerges midway and continues to the end.
