Review #7500, drinking on a day when i found out we're stuck in the house for 3 weeks thanks to Covid-19...
Pours a med foamy tan frothy head with lower retention, long legs, thick layered black beer

Nose brings plenty of dark chocolate, roast, plenty of bourbon barrel characters, juicy bourbon, vanilla barrel, cookie dough, little alcohol, dark choc fudge and cocoa, little caramel and nougat, baking spices, smooth rich vanilla, some coffee late

Taste brings thick fudge, dark chocolate, cocoa, layers of cocoa and chocolate, then into big vanilla smooth rich vanilla and bourbon barrel, juicy smooth bourbon, a bit spicy with bitter spicy hops and some baking spices, bit of nougat and cookie dough as well, very dark roast but stops just short of acrid, some roasted coffee as well, bit of alcohol but not a ton, med bitterness, mild dry semi sticky finish

Mouth fuller bod, rich chewy like, med-lighter carb, mild warming alcohol

Overall solid beer, great base stout as usual, barrel came through quite nicely, this was def a delicious beer as most of the Eclipses are

Quarantine day twenty three: stability reigned. Almost normal. I feel pretty. 500 ML yellow-waxed bottle split reluctantly with my wife.

Black. The nose brings chocolate chips, vanilla, bourbon, alcohol, & the future echo of yumminess.

Imperial Eclipse Stout – Booker’s is good, like an unexpected link while you’re drifting idly through a good Porn Hub session. The bourbon is sharp, boozy, & simultaneously smooth, which makes as much sense as a bad Porn Hub session. Mid-palate brings chocolate chip (probably Ghirardelli), sinus clearing booze, wood, just a touch of roast. Harsh – but smooth. This should come in moderate size buckets. I’d love to pass out face-first in a bowl of this.

This beer is a study of contradictions & another in a long line of Eclipse triumphs. Excellent beer.

Draught 8oz snifter at Wet City in Baltimore. A good looking black pour. A lot of bourbon on the nose & tongue, but no appreciable alcohol burn. Nice, but pricey.
