Flaska från SB, vintage 2015. Kolsvart med högt brunbeiget, gräddigt skum. Doft av krämig kola, fudge, toffee, lakrits, mörkt socker, lätt fatkaraktär och bourbon. Stor och fyllig kropp med fint integrerad fatkaraktär och en alkohol som värmer på snyggt. Massor av kola, lakritsfudge, tjärpastill, mörkt socker, kaffe och en snäll bourbon-ton som växer till sig i eftersmaken tillsammans med en bra beska. FiftyFifty kan verkligen det här med fatlagring. Ännu en elegant Eclipse!

Doft: vaniljfudge, choklad, whiskey, ekig, lite som rom, Coca cola, lite kaffe, rökig, vanilj, lite bärig syrlighet. Smak: len! Choklad, vaniljfudge, lätt av whiskey, lite lite lakrits, honung, lagom sötma, välbalanserad! Oljig, lite coca-cola, elegant, mycket trevlig!!

EdKing (2668) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2017
2012 vintage picked up at the Great British Beer Festival. Pours opaque black with dark brown edges, tan head which is completely gone in a few seconds. Nose is fruity, with lots of the bourbon notes coming through, dark fruits, raisin, fig, vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate, roasted malt. Taste is dark chocolate, raisin, sultana, fig, vanilla, slight coffee. Delicious.

Bottle 2014 vintage. Initial taste of cherries, licorice, Belgian chocolate and coco nibs. A bit of mulling spices added in. the alcohol plays with the malts in a wonderful way, the barrel in this is quite exquisite in that it also plays right along, great sipper!

Bottle @ company tasting. 2013 edition. Pitch black body with a small, dense brown head. Strong, intense, very nice aroma of dark malt, coffee, dark chocolate, dry fruit and alcohol. Flavor is sweet dark malt, dry fruit, coffee, chocolate, balanced bitterness and a bit boozy Bourbon in a nice way. Full bodied and very long lasting, strong aftertaste. Very nice, not exactly what I will call balanced, but still very nice in a big, bold way.

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.

4.1
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.
