Bottle shared by Curran tonight.

Pours a pretty dark black, with a small fizzy mocha head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells really quite delicious- like bourbon soaked brownies, hazelnuts, vanilla, and roasted malt.

The aroma's a bit better than the taste on this one. It does taste a bit like a bourbon-soaked brownie sundae- so much chocolate, bready malt, roasted malt, vanilla, cream, and sweet, out-front bourbon. It's not quite as punchy as other Eclipses I've had, but it's certainly really tasty anyway.

This could be a bit thicker, but as it is, it's still substantial. The body can't quite live up to other barrel-aged stouts of similar caliber, though. This is really creamy and silky, almost like it's on nitro.

Not the best Eclipse variant I've ever had, but it's still a really well done barrel aged stout.

This is very light in comparison to the 4 roses variant.
