Bottle from SB. Pitch. Black, beige head. Huge chocolate aroma fills the room when pouring, coffe, bourbon, vanilla are other a. Sweet maple syrup taste, bourbon and chocolate vanilla flavours. Medium body, not that thick mouthfeel I expected. It works though in this beer.

Bottle at Big Matts Eclipse tasting. Black with a creamy mocha ring. Sweet but dry on the finish with lots of chocolate, bourbon and some vanilla, not too sweet, dry on the finish, ends strangely (maybe it was Lucs fault).
