Black. Some bourbon in the aroma. Heavily roasted malt. Heavy palate. Not much bourbon in the flavor at all. It finishes dry. Marheb (6336) - MontrÃ©al, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2013
Un brownies liquide avec un glaçage à la vanille et des notes de petits fruits. Le corps soyeux et velouté des eclipse y est encore une fois. tom10101 (6298) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2013
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 it’s 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 isn’t extra thick though. Good balance. Quite complex. Another decadent Eclipse! riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 14, 2010
Sharply bourbon strong nose, apples, woody with soft hints of vanilla too. Black pour with cola edges thinnish beige head. Bourbon, vanilla, wood, darker malts, some chocolate, tons of bourbon, like a shot was poured into the beer. Super boozy, thin body. Wow I could have let this sit for a while.

(22oz purple wax bomber #99/2009 thanks to ericandersnavy) clear ruby brown with oily khaki bubbles. Nose of honey, bourbon, alcohol, chocolate syrup. Taste of maple, alcohol, vanilla bean, honey, milk chocolate, bourbon that’s complex and delicious. Silky smooth mouthfeel. thornecb (6159) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 18, 2017
2012 bottle. Pours deep mahogany-tinged brown into a snifter. Mocha head with medium retention recedes to hug rim. Vanilla and bourbon aromas. Sweet hot chocolate and vanilla upfront turning to warming bourbon and bitter earth in the lasting finish. Skyview (6115) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2017
Sampled this one several times. Most of them were shared by Bacterial. Pours and opaque and syrupy near black colored brew with a thin tan head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind a film top and beige ring. Aroma of Baker’s chocolate, bourbon, a hint of blackstrap molasses, soy and sweet licorice. Taste is full bodied, lots of bourbon and dark chocolate flavors. Finish is thick and chewy with a strong alcohol presence with bourbon and dark chocolate. Yum. Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - AUG 16, 2013
