COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
4 versions of Eclipse this year. The lions share will go to Evan Williams Single Barrel. Barrels were 10-13 years old. These barrels were kept in an ambient temp storage situation. Approx 180 days in the wood. Should be somewhat bourbon forward with notable barrel character behind the spirit. Beer may have thinned due to storage temp and mild vinous notes based on oxygen pickup during aging. Estimated bottle count...3500. Subject to change...

Odense Late Summer Post-Munkekonge Whale Spotting Night. 2012 vintage. Black with a tiny off-white head. Roasted malty aroma with licorice and bourbon. Sweet, roasted flavour with malt, chocolate, coffee and bourbon. A little to burnt/ashy for my taste

16.06.2014, 0,65l bottle (2012 vintage) @ BBGTC tasting:
Nice light brown creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is kind of mild and balanced at first, before the dry oaky touch cuts through, dark malts, caramel, cocoa, oak, ashes, whiskey, spices. Taste is slightly sweet, dark malts, caramel, dark sugar, mild sweet bourbon, oak, vanilla, whiskey, sour coffee, hints of dried dark fruits. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Nice.

yngwie (16760) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle, 22oz. 2012 vintage. An almost clear one, at least it looks so. Hard to tell actually, its really dark brown in color. A small, dark beige head sits on top. The aroma is roasted and lightly coffeeish, with a sugary spiced touch, some booze, dark chocolate and toffee. Its full-bodied and warming on the palate, perhaps a bit sweet, and with a nice carbonation level. Roasted malts, caramel sugary malts, some bourbon and wood, a spiced hint and some licorice. Lasting finish. Nice indeed, a sipper well worth a try. 140616

Nose is dark chocolate, burnt sugar, coffee, licorice, mild bourbon woody tones, mild gunpowder-like smokey tones and hints of leather and alcohol.

Highly pleasant and complex BA imperial stout, yummy stuff.

Pours black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, alcohol, oak, vanilla, some spices, vinous, licorice and hint of molasses. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter with a long warm, vinous, chocolate and licorice finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

rodenbach99 (4415) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2014
Vintage 2013 (2/2013, cire noire). Une bire noire avec une mousse brune, rien de plus classique. Un nez bois avec des notes de tquila (il me semble). Un peu de rti. Une bouche passable aqueuse, sucre, touche de chocolat et damertume en fin de bouche. Un peu chaude et agressante. Elle manque de finesse. (Merci SlovakSniper).

SlovakSniper (5354) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2014
Cire noire. Version 2013. Une petite tte brune flotte sur un liquide opaque qui mapparat visqueux. Une dentelle sinstalle au fil des gorges. Le nez est charg par la barrique et par des malts qui avancent des notes de caramel fonc, de chocolat, de caf, dpices et de noix de coco grille. Le got est aiguis par le bourbon tandis que son bois tranche les malts qui veulent tre riches. En bouche, le liquide est de trs bonne densit. La texture est moelleuse. Le ptillement sacquitte bien de sa tche. La finale est longuement douce, relaxante et bien touche par le bourbon, la mlasse et le chne noirci. Cette bire qui est pour le moins agrable boire ne sait pas comment faire pour me renverser. Bouteille partage avec rodenbach99.

gEUS (1637) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle shared by Jeffo at the CMLSG14 cellar tasting. Pours pitch black with a tiny light beige head. Nose is lots of boozy bourbon and a bit of vanilla. Lacks balance and depth.
