THE Eclipse Tasting. Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Smooth palate, light and a little dry. The dark malt is lighter here and with a touch of aniseed. Sweet but subtle vanilla oak. Again a touch of dark fruits. Finishes semi dry. The alcohol a little more obvious in this one and the palate lighter. Good though!

Bottle at THE Eclipse Tasting, London. Bottle #552, yellow wax. Thanks to Jack! Pours dark brown with a creamy, brown cap. Nose holds vanilla, honey, light nostril-stinging booze. Big sweet flavor with rich brown bread, mellow chocolate, light vanilla, light alcohol. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately warming on the finish with light roast, dark sugars, raisins, licorice, some honey and light brownies. Nice beer with a well-rounded character. Rich, but not too sweet.

3.6
mcberko (17845) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2015
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small-medium brown head. Aroma reveals loads of bourbon barrels, a touch of smoke, medium roast and a hint of oxidation. Flavour is rich and cohesive, with massive bourbon notes, medium smoke, medium roast and a hint of oxidation. The barrel aging is done well, with no harsh elements. However, it all feels a tad dulled, maybe because of the aging. All in all, very good, but shy of excellent.
