Black. Some bourbon in the aroma. Heavily roasted malt. Heavy palate. Not much bourbon in the flavor at all. It finishes dry.

reebtogi (5925) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
650ml bottle pours black in color with a 2 finger light tan head that leaves some nice lacing rings on the glass. Aroma is dominated by bourbon with hints of chocolate and licorice. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with a light roasted grain and coffee bitterness finishing with the bourbon and a healthy alcohol burn. Medium bodied with some mild carbonation. Much more complex and tasty than I can put into words. Very nicely done brew that suits the style very well and is highly recommended.

dmac (5827) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Bottle generously shared by a BA at the Rapture release. Poured a pitch black body under a brown long lasting head. Aroma of coconut, vanilla, bourbon, oak, charcoal and chocolate cake. Fuller syrupy body with a touch of obvious heat. Flavor of chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, oak, tobacco, tar. Good good stuff.

Bottle (22 oz). Shared by hoppypocket, thanks Sir! Black with a medium diminishing brown head and little lacing. Aroma of chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, bourbon, vanilla, boozy notes, oak and very light fruity notes. Taste is moderately sweet (not cloying, especially considering its from the Eclipse series) with caramel, bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, alcohol, oak and light bitter finish (from the coffee?). Full bodied. Low to moderate carbonation. Chewy mouthfeel; the beer isnt extra thick though. Good balance. Quite complex. Another decadent Eclipse!
