DocLock (11048) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottles from Capone’s, Smith’s, Blue Dog. Pours jet black, oily, thick, with minimal tan head. Nose is oaky bourbon, molasses, vanilla. Tastes thick and rich on the palate, with heavy oaky bourbon flavor, roasty dark malt, molasses, and prune. Finishes a bit hot, thivk, complex, and rich. This one is great.

Bottle, shared at THT Nov. '17, thanks kermis. Black color. Beige-brown head. Aroma's: sweet, fruitt, honey. Retronasal it's sweetish, honey, woody, boozy. Flavor is moderate sweet with big wood/tannine notes. Above medium bodied. Long finish, dry from the wood, with moderate bitterness. Ambit different from my previous Eclipse experiences, but still great!

mrjez (675) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUN 25, 2017
Tap at Imazato, rare one-off keg, 2015 in origin perhaps? Black pour with dark tan head. Sweet bourbon aroma, chocolate, coconut, a little barrel character. Flavour similar to nose, sweet notes of bourbon and choc, vanilla/coconut flourishes in sips every so often. Bit of fizz up front, slightly harsh on the backend, throat warmth. Decent.
