HMOG 2015. One of two variants sampled on the day. While I love the series, I found this one to be a bit sweeter than some that I have had. Lots of bourbon, vanilla, barrel, chocolate. Sweet and still yummy. VictorStr (1740) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAR 6, 2015
Fantastisk arom chocklad och kokos. Ljuvlig balans i smaken, sötma balanseras upp av viss beska, mycket chocklad. Riktigt bra kropp. kermis (13883) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle shared. Pours near black with a small tan head. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon, wood, malt, fudge, chocolate, light coffee, molasses. Flavor is heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Medium thick and sticky mouthfeel. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Wow! Pours thick unclear black coffee with a small darker beige head. Aroma and flavor blow the 12 year old out of the water! There are big spicy vanilla and barrel notes with chocolate and mocha on the tongue settling so well. There is a nice creamy but balanced body as well. rarbring (2295) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2014
Overall: Oak, almond, soy sauce, madeira.

Note: Bottle 650 ml at a De Klomp tasting. (Vintage 2012) Reviewed 2014-12-27.
First sip was hot and a but syrup like, but as the beer warmed in a snifter the bourbon mellowed. The sweetness of Totality paired with the Elijah Craig 20 year barrels was fantastic.

Big bourbon, vanilla, slightly marshmallowy aroma. Flavor is big, sweet and thick, Some toasted marshmallow. Very nice. tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle: Wow, my first Eclipse stout. Deep, deep brown around the edges with a jet black center; small tan head fades quickly to a thin collar. Aroma pops with dark cocoa, wood, faint maple syrup, warming & smooth bourbon, mild roasted malt, & a small back-end hint of residual sweetness. Tastes almost like a Hershey’s chocolate bar up front, only darker &lathered in a little bit of bourbon. Again, some back-end maple syrup notes that work their way in nicely. Touch of burnt molasses, dark & bittersweet cocoa beans, & a slight hint of boozy wood lingering on the palate. Semi-thick mouth feel, moderately creamy. Maybe still not worth the price of admission, but a super tasty imperial stout. gnoff (10711) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2014
