Pours an opaque brownish black color with quickly dissipating tan head and fair amount of residual lacing.Nose is very mild chocolate sweetness ,a bit of bourbon barrel and a touch of honey. Taste follows nose ,feels a bit on the thin side. Not quite a disappointment, but not the best value. Definitely a one and done, mainly due to cost.There are a whole lotta BA stouts out there for way less $$ that easily give this a run for the money.Don't get me wrong ,this is very,very good -just way over priced.

2015 bottle. Wow, amazing nose fudgey, very smooth. Thick just enough on the mouthfeel. Not boozy at all. Not too thick but looks nice and dark. Smells like classic Eclipse

Reviewed on 6/5/17. 2016 bottle

L - Pours a dark brown with a thin mocha colored head.
S - I get notes of milk chocolate sugary sweetness and bourbon.
T - Subtle chocolate flavors and honey sweetness on the finish. A bit of a weird aftertaste.
F - A little thin
O - Just not a lot going on here and there is little balance. Kind of a disappointment considering it's price and reputation. Not worth the hype.
