Mine is the 2013 version, and…. 11.9% ? how is this 11.9% and all the others are 9.5% ? ? ?
This one smells nice. Very nice. I don’t really like all these stouts with coffee in them although I love coffee. But they are usually a bit bitter but not in that i-love-coffee kind of bitter, ya know?
This one poured ultra dark brown with a residual creaminess on top after sitting for a few minutes (because I cant get enough of this aroma!) and smells absolutely divine. This is a just-finished filter from the Mr. Coffee or a just-done Keurig cone aroma. No bitterness whatsoever in the smell and I guess that’s why I’m hesitating to take that first sip….. I don’t want to be disappointed in the taste….. and the longer it sits, the creamier the film on top gets!! This is amazing! Okay, first sip coming up……
Some bitterness. A lit bit like sucking on that just-finished Mr. Coffee filter, yet still with some nice roundness and it blends very well with the expected Eclipse. A little weird subconsciously expecting some whiskey aromas and tastes but the coffee is doing very nicely. For the style of infusing coffee flavor (via a barrel or otherwise) this one gets a 5 in aroma and is almost perfect in taste. The coffee is subtle, yet very present, if that makes any sense at all…..
Subsequent more-vigorous pours into the snifter produce taller, much-more creamier head and smell just as beautiful. I really had my doubts on this one and maybe that is why I am so surprised I enjoy it this much. The coffee is a ‘part’ of the brew, not tasting as an ‘added’ component. What an awesome brew all these Eclipses are… ! just a tad too bitter (maybe i expect to much) but aside from that this one is TOPS...
