2012 vintage.

A: Midnight black body with a mocha head that recedes to a small ring quickly. Patchy lacing. Nice looking stout.

S: Cocoa, toffee, and some oxidative sherry notes. Hints of vanilla and dark fruits as it warms. A bit of alcohol heat closes everything out.

T: Milk chocolate, bourbon soaked cherries, and honey sweetness upfront. Everything fades to bitter dark chocolate and a tick of maple syrup. Alcohol heat is still a big player in the finish despite the time in the cellar, but the barrel character that is usually paired with that is more subdued. Very balanced with no aspect overly dominant.

M: Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. Long lingering finish. Pretty light on its feet compared to other imperial stouts.

O: As usual, this entrant to the Eclipse series delivers. Liked it a bit more after the time in the cellar than I did than I did fresh. Drink em now!
