Had on tap at Fifty-Fifty in Truckee brew pub.
Amazing draft Imp Stout. Well crafted with great toasty malts throwing off rich coffee and chocolate.
Deep and thick but has a nice raspy ABV edge...but
complementary not distracting
Just a great Imperial Stout.
No doubt how this serves as a perfect base for their BA Eclipse series.

Well this just looks awesome, I can't imagine a much better appearance for any kind of stout, super dark roast hefty appearance, black SRM as night, almost 5/6" brown head on the top, super small bubbles.

The aroma was well hopped, bitter Chinook like stuff going on, lots of roast.

Taste is a bitter, chunky roasty, chocolate malt kind of beer. I crack up when I hear Eclipse is too thin. Like, have you had the base beer? There's plenty of dark fruit notes and bitterness in there, like it was blended with a Baltic porter at times. That is the only backend of this that wasn't excellent. Sort of a tobacco bitterness and acrid thing. But it is definitely thick enough to hide the alcohol. That is nice, this is never hot.

Great roast. Nice bitter-sweet chocolate. Dark fruits almost cherry liquor / port like. Very will made Impetial stout. Highly recommended. On tap at the source.
