Thisis12ptfont (1172) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - FEB 27, 2017
Aromas of immense coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, raisins, charred malts, barrel wood, toffee, hints of vanilla and green pepper skin. Pours pitch black with no foam and hidden alcohol legs. Taste brings heavy coffee, charcoal, charred malts, campfire ash, oak, barrel wood, bourbon and chocolate upfront. Mid palate offers more oak, toffee, raisins, barrel wood, leather, slick caramel, vanilla, black licorice, slick coffee oils and tons of bourbon. Finishes with bitter coffee, coffee oils, chocolate syrup, roasted black malts, vanilla and massive bourbon. Overall, this is a delectable treat with a massive amount of bourbon and coffee complexity. Coffee lovers rejoice.

3.5
fiery_1 (927) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2017
650ml bottle @ Jonny’s 2016 Eclipse tasting. Pours a mostly opaque black brown colour with a thin tan head. Nose is huge green peppers. Flavour is much better, imparting a decent coffee character, while finishing semi-bitter. Not as enjoyable as the others.
