look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: in a snifter, pitch black body under a fat finger of dark tan head; lace motes trail after each sip

S: rye whiskey spice, dry and oaky; dark malt coffee and char; hints of herbal spice and bittersweet cocoa

T: roasted dark malts bring predictable chocolate and espresso, running under currents of dry rye whiskey, with flavors of wood and earth; maybe suggestions of anise and tobacco, honey and hoppy flowers

M: smooth and mellow across the palate, with the slight sting of rye spice and alcohol; medium-full body, low carbonation, slightly sticky; drying finish

O: another excellent Eclipse stout - a bit tough at a $33 bottle, but for the extravagant, frivolous, or dedicated BAs, well-worth the try.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A-Clear amber brown when pouring, black in the glass and tries to leave some lacing.

S-Good deal of rye spice, whiskey and chocolate.

T-Lots of rye, good deal of spice, chocolate, roasted malt and coffee. The whiskey is present as well.

M-Medium bodied, not much carbonation tad creamy.

O-Easily better than the High West Bourbon, possibly worth a repeat purchase.
