Koelschtrinker (21492) - K?ln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 13, 2016
Intensiver, sehr trockener Malzantrunk. Schokoladig, Noten von Whisky, ab dem späten Mittelteil deutlich weicher, die Trockenheit fällt nicht mehr so stark ins Gewicht. Steigende Intensität, dabei fällt der verdammt weiche Alkohol auf. Langer weicher Nachhall. Gut! 10/12/12/12/12/12

Black color, beige head, medium head, apparently less carbonated. Tickling carbonation on the tongue, dark chocolate flavor, mild bourbon or rye feeling, a bit too boozy, and moderately roasty in the final. More tobacco than the Four Roses tasted side to side. Nice sweetness level. Balanced. Very nice.

22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Nose brings out lots of exquisite bourbon, oak and wood. Flavour is insanely complex, with loads of bourbon, vanilla, oak, and roasted malt. This must be the finest of the Eclipse series - amazingly complex and deep. Highly decadent and drinkable. Awesome stuff.
