Small aroma. Milk stout type of feel on first taste then goes to sour notes. Not as well done as other eclipse stouts. Not worth the cost sadly.

Black as night with a tan head. Chocolate, and boozy whiskey in the nose. Coffee, roast grain, and a bit of chocolate flavor, medium thick body and fairly high carbonation. Nice enough overall, too much carbonation, but a nice smoke, coffee character that lingers on the palate.
