Gerbeer (3332) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 22 oz bottle. 2012 vintage. Pours black with light to moderate tan head. Aromas of rich dark roasted malts, pumpernickel/oatmeal, and alcohol. Flavors are similar with notes of toasted coconut and licorice. Big, full, and boozy. Very good but over priced - at least double that of equally good or better barrel aged Imperials.

Bottle at 7 Eclipse Tasting. Again opaque black with a tiny beige head. Quite sweet with aromas of roasted malts and some dates. Also notes of alcohol. Medium to full bodied. Soft carbonation. Sweet and slightly dry Bourbon finish.

slowrunner77 (10763) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"Definite and noticeable drop-off from the EC 18/20 year version, but still a great beer, if a bit overpriced. Sweet, with a touch of hops at the end. Ive always really liked the base beer, and probably would like, but not love, this bourbon."

DuffMan (9747) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle. Ive had both the 2013 and the 2014. Both were very very similar, showing a nice densely malty imperial base with a dominant (but pleasing) bourbon character. The 13 was distinctly smoother, less boozy in the finish. Im really enjoying this BA Eclipse series.

Habanero (4375) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2015
Bottled. Pours pitch black with a nice tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa. dark chocolate, bourbon, soy, vanilla and wood. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with bitter notes and alcohol. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. An excellent Impy.

FunkyF (1049) - rebro, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2015 Flaska frn SB. Svart med brunt skum. St, tung doft av choklad och smrkola. Mycket bourbon i smaken, med vanilj och kola.
