Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color ale with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of rich black chocolates notes with light residual sugar notes and some rye whiskey notes with some bitter roasted malt. Taste is a mix between some bitter roasted malt with some rich black chocolate notes and some rye whiskey notes with a somewhat harsh finish. Body is full with nice creamy and oily texture with good carbonation and not much apparent alcohol notes. Very enjoyable but still a bit harsher than some of the other varieties.

Bottle. Pours brown/black with tan head. Smell is boozy, dark fruit, molasses. Taste is all the same....raisins, plum, dark brown sugar, cherries. The rye is a nice accent. Warming alcohol. I have found these Eclipse beers to be truly great - some develop better than the others but they are great for the cellar. Love this series.
