Likely an infected bottle, unless, however unlikely, a metallic taste to the beer is what they were going for here. Unfortunate, since a friend had hoarded this bottle for quite some time after buying at the brewery. Still, you could taste and smell what it might have been, and I find myself jealous of those of you who have had the chance to drink it at the height of it's once great power.

No matter what the age on this, I find a reason to like it. Same with barrel variation.

Anyhoo, pours lighter than Eclipse, this is a blend of barleywine and stout. Imperial stout. Thin off white/beige head, 1/3". Aroma of chocolate, cocoa, wood, hops, caramel.

Taste, wow, enjoyable sipper, not boozy at all. Vanilla, rye like sweetness, char. Still some chocolate malt, even some light orange citrus notes. Just as good as most of the Eclipse series. Packs a lot of complexity into a drinkable beer. Cheaper than Eclipse too. I should be buying more of this and less Eclipse.
