I took this bottle home after a tasting at The Kulminator in Antwerps, Belgium. I was there with some of my closest BA's. Unfortunatly i had to drive but i got the last of the bottle to take home with me.

What can i say about this beer what hasn't been said...what a great BA stout. Thick and juicy. It almost feels like you are drinking a 17 abv stout.

Great beer, thanks ForgetFu!

Bottle 2577, 2011, shared with Billy and Mike. Third straight day of drinking this beer. yikes.

Pours a near opaque milk chocolate brown with a quickly dissipating dark mocha head. Aroma and flavor are smooth, barrel dominant and nearly beyond nearly any other BA stout. Aroma is barrel sweet and mildly spicy; vanilla, bourbon, butter blend with caramel, burnt sugar and mild alcohol. Body is medium thick, smooth and silky with a soft warming alcohol presence in the finish. Barrel and stout blend together perfectly with layers of vanilla, sugar, roast malt, chocolate, figs, plum and smooth bourbon. My favorite 2011 Eclipse fresh and in my opinion surpasses 2009 EC and this year's 12 EC. Hopefully the increased production will make this beer easier to acquire; seek this out now.
