look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
650ml purple waxed 2013 bomber bottle run #2 poured into tulip Christmas day 2013
A black liquid with a deep cola edge, lots of tiny bubbles going up the side and feeding a big three finger mocha foam that quickly cuts in half but then sticks around with a slight island, several rings of lace followed by random patches, looks great
S lots of chocolate fudge, vanilla, some sweet soft caramel and I'm getting some of the honey I didn't notice in the other variants, not too heavy on the barrel but has nice mellow bourbon and wood thing going on, booze is there but quite well concealed
T more booze then the nose with some burnt coffee and char, whats on the nose is still there but doesn't mesh together quite as well, still solid don't get me wrong but doesn't quite match the nose
M not very heavy for the color but the tiny bubbles cream it up and like the other 2013's I've had I'd plain and simply be amazed if this clocks in at nearly 12%
O another great beer from the series but I don't think its my favorite, the taste doesn't quite keep up to the nose but still great all-around
everything I've had from the Eclipse series has been great and perhaps the number of reviews has gotten this one in particular on to the top 250 but I don't think its my personal favorite even though its awesome.

Sampled from a 22oz bottle.
A - Black with a moderate tan head that fades quickly leaving only a nice dusting.
S - Greta bourbon and vanilla without overpowering the other notes of cocoa, dark chocolate and brown sugar.
T - Much like the aroma. Such strong flavors yet so balanced and coordinated. A slight a sweetness which helps it stand up to those strong flavors. The medley of flavors lingers nicely.
M - Thick and chewy with a low carbonation.
O - Fantastic! I love this beer!!!
