look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Poured from the bottle into a goblet. 2012 vintage, bottle no: BR/1 2012 is written on the bottom left of the bottle.

Pours a dark, viscous, opaque color with a thin tan head that dissipates quickly. Very little lacing is present on the glass throughout. Looks to be about 55 degrees SRM.

Smells of whiskey, roasted malt, vanilla notes, caramel. There's an awesome nose on this brew. A lot of whiskey character along with the sweetness of the black malts.

Tastes of sweet whiskey, roasted malt, caramel, vanilla, coffee, and fig. Awesome flavor! You get the whiskey notes up front with a dry finish. Definitely a well rounded brew that benefits from aging. Can't wait to try another in 2-3 years.

Mouthfeel: thick and viscous on the tongue with a sweet sensation up front followed by a dry feeling on the finish. Low carbonation on this one, but that is characteristic of the style.

Overall a great whiskey barrel aged stout. Definitely one to pick up if you haven't!

Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer is jet black, with a creamy, tan head. Nose of rich cream, raw honey, milk chocolate, and hints of coffee. Flavors are heavily roasted, with a toasted grain overlay, and a backbone heavy on chocolate and coffee. Subtle vanilla highlights, with a slow warmth as you go. Very smooth, with a chocolate and coffee aftertaste, and subtle whiskey highlights that sweeten. Smooth, slow finish. Solid beer.

Poured from a bottle into a goblet glass

Appearance- Dark, oily, and viscous. As expected. Not much lacing.

Smell- Strong boozy mocha, burnt coffee, and a very present corn alcohol sweetness. Hints of barrel aromas are clearly muted by the corn alcohol notes.

Taste- Strong dark chocolate espresso, that moves quickly into corn sweetness. There's a bit of astringency that pops up, but it is very subtle and aged out, and gets dragged back down by big creamy chocolate notes. Think slightly boozy cocoa puffs. The mellowed-out corn booze flavor actually suits this pretty well. The spent barrel aging loses some caramel and oak, but the flavor is still strong and tasty.

Mouthfeel- Thick, viscous, and palate-coating, but not overly chewy.

Overall- It's definitely unique among BA stouts, in that it lacks the character of a wet-bourbon barrel aging. The loss of the caramel and spicy oak notes that would normally be present in a bourbon barrel, are quite pleasantly replaced with corn sweetness. I'm a bit surprised that it worked so well. Perhaps some age in the bottle took the hard boozy edge off, but either way, it came out rather balanced and unoffensive. I would love to try the others in the series, but I was pretty happy with this one.

A: Black with garnet highlights around the edge. A long lasting brown head made of creamy bubbles.

S: Strong chocolate aroma with a moderately-strong caramel malt sweetness. A medium oak character bringing medium vanilla with a fairly strong whisky-like booziness.

T: A good deal of chocolat, roast, plums and prunes with a strong caramel sweetness. The balance is strongly towards the sweet side with a sweet finish. Medium-strong oak and vanilla flavors.

M: Full bodied with a medium level of carbonation. Substantial warmth.

O: A rich flavor stout with a a fair amount of alcohol presence balanced by malt sweetness.

22 oz bomber, bottle number BR 1 2012, gold wax, poured into a snifter.

A- Pours black with an inch of thick, creamy khaki head, leaves spotty lacing.

S- Sweet aroma, lots of corn and alcohol, charred wood and coconut/caramel sugars. It smells nice, it's just a bit mild.

T- I actually really, really like this. The corn lends a mild sweetness, which combines with coconut, vanilla and caramel sweetness that really nicely complements the chocolate, roasted grain and wood flavors. Roasted bitterness is restrained, this is definitely one of the more sugary, although not in a cloying way, Eclipses I've had recently. You get some flavors of sweet corn alcohol, but I'm getting very little heat.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth feel with moderate to low carbonation. A bit dry.

O- A really interesting addition to the series, the corn whiskey lends some unique sugary and boozy flavors that work very nicely, I really enjoyed this beer.

Thanks to meliot2811 for (a) shipping me this lovely addition to the FiftyFifty collecting in my liver & (b) pointing out all the mistakes on my home page. Jerk! But I forgive you for sending me such excellent beer. Actually, I love you now. Ahem. Anyways. 22 oz. bottle with yellowish wax split with my wife.

Pour is strangely lighter than most of the series, almost a darker muddied brown, with typical low carbonation. Have to wet the tip of my nose to get much: whiskey, light roast & chocolate. Not much going on here.

Imperial Eclipse Stout - American Mellow Corn Whiskey let's loose a hard roundhouse. Alcohol shin to the throat, heat settling into my tongue, much more barrel-forward than most of the series. There's a nice roast holding it up, along with chocolate, black licorice, vanilla, maybe a sliver of coconut. Ridiculously drinkable; I could have taken this solo (& wish I had!). Silky smooth like most of the Eclipse, which is weird considering the supernova of alcohol.

Haven't been quite as wild about the 2012 offerings as some of the previous series, but this is a Mauer line drive in my book. The heavy hand of whiskey melds gorgeously with the base beer & comes out better than the sum of its parts. Excellent, wonderful beer.

650ml bomber gold wax poured into tulip 11/810/13 cheers Kmat10 for sharing

A not quite black, you can see half way to the other side of the glass under a thin mocha foam that leaves some polka dot lace

S spicy rye barrels strong, not sure if that's "mellow corn whiskey" or not but I smell rye, a little booze, lots of fudge, some dark fruit, faint licorice, cinnamon catches me off guard, smells a little hot but solid otherwise

T more chocolate with a faint spicy kick, char, a hint of molasses, and everything I smells still there

M medium full, some tannins, a fair amount of heat, slightly numbing on the gums, long finish of charred barrel and chocolate lingers

O booze popping up here and there is my only complaint, lots of barrel and fairly well rounded

I've had a couple from this series and I think I preferred the others over this one but that still leaves some great beer in my glass

On-tap, snifter.

A: Pours near black with raisin highlights and a thin short lived light brown head. Spotty lace.
S: Smells creamy and smooth with the alcohol being very hidden on the nose. I get tons of vanilla and smooth chocolate.
T: A little more complex than the nose with flavors of woody barrel, oak, leather, chocolate and raisins. The finish is bitter with dark chocolate and dark fruits, and the aftertaste is full of vanilla. Tastes age already with very mild notes of whisky and butter.
M: Thick, creamy, smooth, mellow and slightly buttery. This is drinking great on tap.
O: I thought this rivals aged bottles of my favorite variations from last year. It maybe could have used a bit more barrel presence but I cannot wait to see how the bottles of this turned out.

First had: bottle from...Edgemont, I think

Poured into a proper 5050 Eclipse snifter, an opaque, dark, brown-black liquid capped off with a small tan head that retained well; minimal lacing. Big whiskey aroma, oak, dark malts. More of that whiskey in the taste, a bit distinct from the other Eclipse variations I've had, notes of oak barrel, dark malts, burnt marshmallow, unsweetened cocoa, caramel, touch of vanilla. Heavy-medium body, pretty stiff with booze, felt like more than 9.5%, but still nice and smooth. A nice sipper. Very good overall.

surprised this one doesn't have more allegiance on here. lovely stuff really, every bit as good as the elijah craig versions. the pour is inky black, motor oil in color but not that thick. looks the same as the others, with a patch tan head. the nose is sweeter from the honey like usual, but there is a different sweetness too, more pronounced, from the corn whiskey I can only assume, that isn't present in the others ive had. there is also that familiar toffee and licorice complex, nice. the flavor is awesome, vanilla and clover honey and a weird booze profile. woody and rich, tobacco notes in the finish and some bitter burnt barley to go with that sweetness from the honey. complex and gorgeous. alcohol seems stronger in this one, a little more burn, and maybe a little thinner too. carbonation is very relaxed, but the mouthfeel is still creamy and full bodied. this would make a fine dessert for any meal, and is absolutely a bottle to share at this price and this richness. possibly my favorite version of eclipse yet!

Thanks to JAHMUR for sharing a bottle.

A: Black with crimson highlights under a finger of fine tan froth. Pretty good retention and lacing. Solid.

S: Hugely aromatic, but quite raw whiskey dominates. Booze, fresh oak, molasses, and marshmallow. Some chocolate and dark fruit. Enjoyable.

T: Follows the nose. Sweet malt, candied vanilla, corn whiskey, dates, marshmallow, and warming alcohol on the finish. Quite good.

M: Creamy medium body. Lively and substantial. Wonderful.

O: Good, but not as great as several other Eclipse variants I've had. I passed on buying a bottle for myself based on my tepid feelings about Corn Whiskey, so I'm really glad I got to try it. It turns out that I wouldn't have been disappointed had I pulled the trigger, but it's certainly not good enough for me to contemplate seeking out for a second sample.

1757th Review on BA
Bottle to Bavarian Lodge Tulip

2012 Release

App- A very dark brown. Bordered on black but never reached it. An amber/garnet edge formed and then was gone when the small aggressive 1/2 finger brown head poured and was gone. Made way to a small ring of bubbles.

Smell- An aromatic beer with strong chocolate on a large whiff. The ensuing notes bring a bit of roasty malts with a touch of corn lightness. Its a bit sweet and smooth with a bit of oak. The booze is not very heavy but adds a depth to this one, this seems creamier and lusher than others to me. Maybe the corn does it? So why does an AAL smell like ish then?

Taste- As it warmed to over 55F, it became a bit more creamy and tastier. However, this one was a bit smoother than all others. Had a bit of corn and vanilla and chocolate on the back but doesnt give the boozy variant burn as others have. Nice variant but not the tastiest one. Its getting up there with the EC's to me though.

Mouth- A fairly medium body with a large creamy body to it and a low- medium carbonation. The after taste leaves residual booze and some oaky chocolate with a touch of a corn like sweetness that I attributed to a coconut/vanilla blend.

Drink- Its an eclipse stout for sure. Has that underlying flavor that each variant had. This just was just smoother than others but not in the class of the other variants I prefer. As mentioned above, this was getting closer than the others to the EC series.

Bottle from Premier Gourmet, 650ml into a tulip. Tasted alongside 4 other variants.

Black with a tan head. Nose of corny bourbon, vanilla, sweet and sugary and quite distinct from the other variants sampled that evening. Flavourful bourbon on the palate, vanilla, brown sugar, light coconut and sweet corny bourbon moreso towards the late palate.

The beer pours like thin oil or thick coffee. It sits in the glass a chocolaty black with a nice little scrim of bubbles that initially made a head above the beer. The head/scrim is a creamy yellow color with khaki hints and is made of nano bubbles that make a smooth and creamy appearance as they pack together. Lacing from the beer is slick, and the legs are light but definitely apparent on the glass. On the nose, this beer is all about the whiskey. Big, bristling and sweet alcohol rush the nose bringing hints of corn alcohol, and sticky corn syrup. This is a phenomenal whiskey-scented beer; it is fresh and snappy on the nose. Beneath the whiskey sits gentle caramel roast alongside tropical coconut, and some slight dark raisin notes. My girlfriend picks up hints of salted caramel as well. On the tongue, the beer tastes hot in alcohol with sticky sweetness coming from the malt and the whiskey mingling. The finish of the beer is dry however, leaving a light bite of acid in the mouth. In flavor, the beer begins as spicy alcohol with hints of coconut. The coconut eventually folds out on the tongue into sweet corn whiskey with touches of tannic oak that works to dry the cloying sweet whiskey flavor. Malt plays second fiddle in this beer, lacing a light caramel undertone to the beer and appearing as a mellow candied caramel in the aftertaste. The finish runs hot with cloying whiskey and a touch of coconut and tannic oak. In the mouth, the beer feels on the heavy side of medium in body with a very soft carbonation. The beer feels smooth and velvety, showing a little of the honey as it caresses the tongue. It bites a little on the tip of the tongue as the beer finishes, which cuts back on the softness of this beer, but it still is quite a soft beer. Overall, this is a hugely whiskey-heavy beer, but it tastes great because of it. My bottle was several months old but the whiskey was still hot as ever on the tongue, and provided a nicely complex flavor for me to ponder. It was a little too hot in alcohol for what I normally like in a barrel-aged stout, but it was still very good to sip on and very tasty. The beer was also gigantically pricey, but my girlfriend is amazing and bought it for me and I thank her greatly. A beer worthy of a try, though I don’t think I will get it again; this is a great beer to split among friends.

22oz bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours thick and pitch black, Minimal tan froth

(S)- A deep aroma of cocoa and raisin with hints of oakiness. Ever so slight chalkiness.

(T)- Quite similar to the smell with plenty of raisin and cocoa. Lots of molasses and caramel too. Subtle oak and vanilla.

(M)- A mellow carbonation level. Big and rich with plenty of sweet flavors.

(O)- One of the sweeter versions in the barrel variants for me. Almost seems thicker too. They are just too expensive

Shared by myself and one of my bestest friends in tout de monde, chez Paul. The beer looks like an Eclipse stout. If you're not sure what I'm ranting about, consult any one of my other completely useless reviews of Eclipse beers.

Mellow corn? Are you for serious right now? Don't be trifling B.

I'm not sure what Sasquatch or pilgrims have to do with this beer, but I gotta say I'm not exactly feeling like this beer resembles anything Midwesterners slather in margarine and feast upon as if they were ground rodents.

Smooth and runny feel, like a sexy silky brunette goddess in clear heels perched in a moonlit motel window as she realizes she has to take a huge, runny dump.

I can't wait to drink the next Eclipse beer, which will almost certainly be crazy similar to this one. Hellz yeah.

2012 Vintage. Wanted to try it due to the Corn Whiskey Barrel aging.

Pours out black, with dark brown highlights near the edges. Not much head, only a hint of lacing.

Chocolate, honey, oak and a slight hint of booze start off the smell. Slight vanilla and earthy hops near the middle. Smooth chocolate finish on the smell.

Taste is pretty close to the smell. There is a slight grain/corn taste that makes it just a tiny bit harsher than the others I've tried, but not offensive.

An interesting variation of the Eclipse Imperial Stout series. Fun if you can still find it!

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a very dark brown with a medium-sized dense chocolate milk colored head. Fades somewhat slowly but then hangs around forever. Never fully goes away. 1/4" of foam remains perpetually. Almost perfectly solid wall of lacing too.

S: Hmph, pretty much smells like grain alcohol. Never had corn whiskey but this practically smells like vodka barrels. I get some oaky vanilla character, a bunch of coconut and then just a touch of chocolate. Very strong alcohol, obviously.

T: Hmph (again). Very interesting. Don't really get any real whiskey/bourbon character up front. It's boozy and has some obvious coconut mixing with chocolate and some char. Kinda sweet with a bunch of vanilla that kicks in after the initial taste. Long lingering drying char in the aftertaste with some sweet corn mixed in. Boozy overall with a grain alcohol character throughout, but especially in the finish, contributing to the dryness.

M: Medium bodied and smooth. A little drying from the oak and alcohol in the finish.

O: Very hard beer to score. Never had corn whiskey so I feel like I'm kinda guessing at the taste and smell aspects. I did my best. Very hot right now as this is extremely fresh. Feels a little over the top, even for me - and I am well accustomed to strong, boozy beers. Having said that, it is quite unique (never even heard of a corn whiskey barreled beer before) and quite complex. Despite the harshness it is surprisingly smooth underneath and goes down well. Still, not as flavorful or complex as the other variants I've had so I can't give it that great of a review. It is also noticeably hotter than any other variant I've had. Not sure if that's purely an age thing or a result of extended barrel aging or just the nature of corn whiskey (again, never had it). Worth trying but definitely only once - especially for $30.

A-lack in the glass, one finger tan head.

S-Bourbon, roasted and burnt malt are the main flavors.

T-Bourbon, roasted and burnt malt. Slight coffee as well.

M-Medium bodied, slightly watery and not much carbonation.

O-Had side by side with the Bernheim Wheat, this was clearly the inferior one. Still a good beer but not worth the price tag.

Standard imperial stout far, dark brown and black, beige head, although this seems to be a lighter shade of most Eclipse beers. Plenty of roast in the aroma. Not as much booze, barrel or chocolate either.

Taste boozier, body comes off thinner (even though it isn't). A little bit of caramel. Vanilla comes later as it warms. Smooths as it warms too, impressive, but for the increased heat on average.

650 mL bottle poured into an Eclipse snifter. 2012 bottle.

Appearance - Murky black with transparent edges. Not much of a head. Wispy surface.

Smell - Chocolatey with a sustained bourbon character. Lots of sharp alcohol, maybe even that raw corn whiskey aroma, but I could be making that up because I know it's corn whiskey. Tough to discern.

Taste - Lots of harsh whiskey flavor. Harsh is a harsh term. It's still a nice barrel character. Sustains the corn whiskey character throughout, with just a bit of a sting in the back end. Chocolate, of course.

Mouthfeel - Slick and creamier than the base beer. Medium carbonation. Sweet and barrel booze finish.

Overall - Interesting barrel character for sure, but not the most impressive.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Looks like an imperial stout, dark brown and black, this one seemed of an infantile amount lighter than the others. Usual wood and roast aroma, this one didn't impart nearly as much chocolate as say, EC20 does. Booziness came out a little more. Probably my least favorite aroma of any Eclipse beer.

Taste was a litte boozier than the others, beer seemed a little thinner. Vanilla and caramel notes. Roast was there, a little bitter. A sweetness that surpasses even the Rittenhouse version, which up to this point, was the sweetest of Eclipse beers IMHO. I don't get as much smoke/charred character on this one as the other Eclipse beers. Mouthfeel remains warm, not as much absorbtion of the alcohol. The roast and the chocolate are still there, but they remain in the background as the corn barrel seems to be driving this one. Carbonation is mild, allows for a creamier, smoother experience, but you just can't get passed the bitterness and heat without as prominent of flavors underlying it. You start to get adjusted to it a few ounces in. Still a very good beer, but given its massive rarity and whatnot, I think there are several better options of Eclipse to look into instead.

A: Pours a really deep dark brown. Some reddish hues on edges. Slightly tan head. Tight bubbles. Layer. About a quarter finger. Some alcohol feet.

S: Actually smells a little boozy at the moment. It's an interesting whiskey smell. Never had corn whiskey, so assume that's what in smelling. Some vanilla and slight caramel. Char. Light roast. Chocolate.

T: Up front, you get bitter chocolate. Also, a little roast coffee. Again, that interesting whiskey flavor. Still getting the normal caramel and vanilla. Some warmth in back of throat. Not a crazy long finish.

M: It's a lighter full bodied beer.
