2013. still lots of carbonation although it's that carbonation which may have stolen some of the flavors over time... really nice still, a bit subdued and very smooth. super easy to drink and very enjoyable.

Solid eclipse. This was the 2015 version, aged about 2 years. Very smooth. Barrel flavors were in the background, while chocolate, fudge, slight alcohol bite were among the most dominant flavors.

Epic pour - deep dark black with a mushroom cloud head. You could scoop it off with a spoon if you were so inclined. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malt and leather. Taste is warm chocolate, charred toast, roasted nuts, coffee, light bourbon and vanilla. Honey adds a bit of sweetness but I wouldn't have known it was there if I hadn't read it. Would've liked a little more punch on the bourbon-back end. Oustanding beer at a hefty price. Meets but does not exceed expectations.
