Picked this up on a whim & I'm glad I did!
Pour - From a 22oz bomber into a snifter. Nice things off white head with nice lacing on the glass.
Aroma - Sweet chocolate, bourbon & coffee.
Taste - Milk & bitter sweet chocolate, vanilla, caramel & of course, bourbon.
Mouth - Sticky, medium to thick body. A little chewy but not as thick as I would've liked.
Overall - This is an excellent beer. Would I ever pay $30 for another bottle of this? Maybe. Either which way, I'm glad I was able to try this. A very solid effort from 50/50!!

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a tasting glass. Vintage 2013.
A: Dark with great lacing.
S: Sticky, syrupy sweet. Trace of booze.
T: Fruity and strong. This is awfully sweet. The fruit is nice, but the syrupy qualities make it taste a little like cough syrup. Finish is pleasantly bitter and cherryish,
M: Smooth and strong. Yum.
O: Tasty, but a bit too syrupy. Not my favorite Eclipse, but still worthy.

Pours like all the rest. Dark brown with a nice frothy beige head, good staying power and a ring around the glass. Not much lacing here.
Nice bourbon burn in the nostrils. Even though this has sat for a number of months....the bourbon will not be denied. Chocolate, cinnamon, marshmallow, cough syrup, apple and caramel. Liking the smell as it warms. Key word...warms.
The taste is cocoa/chocolate goodness. The booze is there, but rather subdued. Good blend of light bourbon and smooth chocolate here. Some coffee, toffee and more marshmallow. Blending nicely.
Silky, smooth mouthfeel.
Overall this was pretty darn good. The flavors are blending well though I would be drinking this sooner rather than later. The booze was not overpowering and the Four Roses blend is really nice for the pairing. I see why Fifty/Fifty keeps this barrel in the mix. Enjoyable session.
