Black pour with a reddish black head. Aroma was non descript bourbon, prolly indistinguishable from others. Nice, not boozy.

Taste is always reliably quite good. Bourbon, oak, chocolate, not on the sweeter end like the rye beers. Creamy, mild smoke notes from the barrel. Really like the grand cru, this has a little of everything, does well, but not better or worse than the high and low end Eclipse beers.

Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, coffee, toffee, raisin, plum, Honey, even if There isn't a strong aroma. But the flavour is the same, just a little thin but absolutely fantastico, silky mouthfeel with vanilla bourboneish sweetness and a Lot of cocoa, plum, rose coconut. Absolutely umbelievable beer.
