22oz bottle purchased as a single from Beverage Warehouse, Winooski, VT. Gold wax, Bottle 1/2013.
Poured into DFH snifter, formed a 1/2" purpley dark brown head over the opaque dark brown/black brew. Frothy head holds nicely, with thick coating lace. Aroma is dark, sweet, and boozy.
Taste starts with rich and dark malts, dark fruit in the middle, and closes with tannins and tons of alcohol character, which mellows through with come vanilla barrel character. Mouthfeel is slickery smooth, and drinkability is good, as in I look forward to finishing the bottle. Glad I had the opportunity to have this, even if the price point is somewhat prohibitive. A Christmas gift to myself.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Black with some transparency. Nice khaki head. Thin collar.
Smell - Bright, sharp bourbon. Oak. Chocolate. Boozy.
Taste - More chocolate. Lots of oak. Bourbon pushes into the finish. Dark chocolate finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Well carbonated.
Overall - Previous year Eclipses seemed to have much more barrel than this. Hmm.
