Comparative tasting of 9 different Eclipse Stout variants. All beers small to rather good yellow-beige rim over jet-black beer 2014 ed. Smokey, Bourbon, vanilla. Sweet, incense, chocolate, whiskycharacter. Warming, alcoholheat and deceptively light bodie. This one is utterly great. Stout the way it ought to be.

2011 version Alcohol, benzene, spirit, Bourbon, vanilla, vanilla icecream, sweet nose. Sweet taste as well, with Bourbon, raisins, sweetened milk, retronasal even more vanilla. Creamy feel, light slickness, treacherously ’light’ bodied. Again a sweet version, but better balanced than the 20yr barrel version.
22 oz bottle poured into a snifter. Inky black, creamy tan head. Lace is spotty due to the high ABV. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, prune, oak, coffee, bourbon. Flavor is sweet bourbon, vanilla, oak, char. creamy chocolate, sweetened coffee, molasses. Bourbon character, and oaky dryness come out more as it warms. tightslice (1536) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Mountain View, CA ($29.99). Aroma is chocolate liqueur, cherries, coconut, some smoke. Taste is smooth, chocolate-y, fruity...gets more and more complex with each sip. Do yourself a favor and grab a friend, a fire, some backwoods and a bottle of this. You won’t be disappointed.

From the bottle at the Stone Pour it Black Event. Great black pour with a nice head. Aromas and flavors were amazing. JK (6406) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Black. Some bourbon in the aroma. Heavily roasted malt. Heavy palate. Not much bourbon in the flavor at all. It finishes dry. Erzengel (10018) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2016
Great deep chocolate aroma. Intense smooth and soft with a great woody whisky in the aftertaste. The body is chocolate with round and smooth caramel. The whisky is not too intense, it fits great into the picture and the woody hints and the smoke and smooth alcohol are a great combination to the smooth and round Imperial Stout. The aftertaste is intense but soft. No alcohol there, very smooth and great with a subtle bitterness and not too much sweetness.
