    Pours opaque. Nary a head to speak of. What little is there is a nice foam color but that is just a ring. Sporadic and spotty lacing.

    Aroma is enticing. Sweet molasses couples with vanilla. Bourbon and oak take a back seat but support. Dark cherries.

    Taste is fantastic. Vanilla, molasses, and oak create a delectable trio. Bourbon, chocolate, and sweetness add complexity and interest. The oak is late, lingering; pleasant.

    Big body with almost no carbonation. Slightly dry.

    This is my first Eclipse beer, my expectations were exceeded. This is a fantastic beer. The price point doesn't make it attainable for all but if you can scrounge up the loose change, well worth it. Enjoy!
