A-Brown when pouring, black in the glass, one finger off white head that leaves behind some lacing.

S-Slight bourbon, rather chocolately, some coffee and a tad vanilla.

T-Rather sweet, chocolate, vanilla, some but not much coffee. Chocolate seems to be more of a dark chocolate.

M-Medium bodied, nice deal of carbonation.

O-The bourbon seemed to really have faded in this beer, I'd drink all Eclipses as soon as possible.

A - Pours a dark brown with a few dark tan bubbles that linger for a bit.

S - Chocolate, subtle roasted malts.

T - Silky chocolate, vanilla, then some bourbon in the finish.

D - Silky smooth heavy body with low carbonation.

O - Smooth, but heavy on the chocolate and vanilla.
