Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2011
A deep dark stout with a thin brown head. In aroma, a smooth musky chocolate, light soy sauce, a bit salty, not bad. In mouth, a nice smooth and bitter chocolate, with toasted coffee beans, not very bourbon barrel-like but good nonetheless. On tap at Brewvival, Feb. 26 2011.

daknole (9115) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 15, 2010
LCBS 2010. Dark brown pour, rich tan head. Aroma is pure on top shelf bourbon, vanill and chocolate. Light roast. Flavor is creamy, sweet bourbon, rich oak, vanilla and toffee. Another beauty.

50belair (2269) - Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2010 Yet another crazy growler shared by Johnathan at LCBS 10. One word, two syllables bourbon. The beer had a great bourbon nose, and a mellow bourbon, vanilla, and roasted malt flavor. Well done...

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2010
On tap at the Charleston Brewvival on 02/27/2010. Dark black body with a large rocky brown head. Big bourbon and roast aroma. Sweet bourbon, vanilla, fruit and roast flavor. Medium full body with moderate carbonation.

brokensail (10961) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 10, 2010
A: The pour is a dark brown color, nearly black, with a finger’s worth of tan head. S: Lots of roasted malts, vanilla, and chocolate. The bourbon provides a nice booze note and some oak, too. T: The roasted character is quite intense on the palate, giving off an almost charred flavor. Underneath there is a good chocolate flavor, some hints of caramel and vanilla, and bourbon. M: The body is a little on the thin side from an imperial stouts. A moderate carbonation to go with it. D: A pretty nice imperial stout, though I would have actually preferred a bit more bourbon character (surprisingly).

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 6, 2010
Growler thanks to womencantsail. Pours with a black body and a small tan head. Aroma is chalky, dry, estery with some alcohol. Taste is barrel, some alcohol, vanilla and chocolate. A bit of wood tannins. Lively bubbles, medium bodied. Good.

Butters (3766) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 25, 2013 Sampled on draft at Brewvival. Pours a near black with large foam brown head. Looks gorgeous. And the aroma was okay, big and oaky and roasty, but not great. Flavor was a bit more dissappointing as it had almost no discernable regular eclipse characteristics. Just a LOT of bourbon, and whisky burning notes. The barrels definitely contributed more than they should have, and seemingly overtook the base beer. It was interesting to taste such a boozy brew, but I wouldn’t want to drink this again. EDIT: sampled again on draft at Trio. Much better this time. Still bourbon heavy, but more like vanilla and cocoa. No burning. But still not an amazing beer or anything.

kbutler1 (1351) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Growler. Courtesy of Mothman. Pours a nice dark brown black color with a slight tan head. Subtel yet strong aroma of bourbon in the nose. Mouthfeel seems a little on the light side. Good bourbon taste along with hints of coffee and vanilla. Smooth. Drinkable but again, for me, I wish the mouthfeel was just a tinge heavier to really make this a knockout.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 21, 2010
Pours an opaque brown color with a brown head. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, some roast, and some earthy hops. Flavor is chocolate, caramel, toast, earthy, vanilla, oak, bourbon, and a light chocolate finish.

zizzybalubba (1422) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - APR 26, 2010
Sampled at WBF in Raleigh. Black pour. Strong oak and whiskey aroma upfront that dominates the other aromas. Whiskey, wood, and espresso are the most noted flavors. The whiskey barrel flavor really takes over a bit more than I would like but still this is a well-done beer. The Sexual Chocolate seems to be able to handle the oak aging better than the Total Eclipse.
