Bomber of 2011, drank in August 2014.

Pitch black body with thick, light brown head; persistent ring of bubbles around the glass.
Smells of dry cocoa, oak, and bourbon.
Taste is sticky sweet, a muted swish of bourbon, and a long, dry finish like dark chocolate.
Oil slick mouthfeel with bubbly carbonation at the very end and a lot of residual sugar. Alcohol is well disguised.

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.
