kraddel (9437) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 16, 2017
2013 edition on the great eclipse tasting. Pours black, first version out of the 7 we had today that actually had a big and resistant foam. Smell is dark malts and grains. Taste is intense, roasty, very roasty grains. Mildly sticky, some decent sweetness. Nice intenseity. Good body and low carbo. Nice

fiulijn (21526) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2017
Bottle from The Gull, North Vancouver; vintage 2016
Black color, large beige head. Mild aroma of roasted malts and alcohol. The dark malt flavor is really good, some dark caramel, mild roastiness, very moderate sweetness, but somehow juicy, with very light barrel character, and very light vinous note in the final.
Very good, not worth the 40$ price tag though.

Oakes (19569) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2017
2016 bottle. Dark brown. Bubbly head. Chocoolate nose with a fair bit of bourbon character. Thick, sweet, and this has a touch of honey and a mellow bourbon note. Quite a woody character. Drier than many of the Ecilpses.

4.1
mcberko (20285) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2017
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out a lovely whiskey barrel character upfront, with light roast further back. Flavour is similar, with a complex whiskey barrel character, followed by vanilla and caramel. Wonderful whiskey character, with just enough sweetness to amp the complexity up. Excellent.
