UPDATED: JAN 28, 2013 Too similar to Black Tuesday to warrant a different review. Hazelnuts are faint at best. Pretty hot as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2014 edition. poured into snifter. aroma: nose on this is ridiculously amazing. here we’ve got blueberry scone, melted chocolate, toasted nuts, and brown sugar. appearance: surprisingly, not very dark. dark brown with an auburn translucency around the top. virtually no head. pours like coca cola. taste: sweet marachino cherry, chocolate (cherry cordial almost), some salty nuts, bitter oak, burning bourbon, and the finish is awash in sweet vanilla and burnt sugars. palate: slick, full bodied, soft on the carb. long finish that burns sweetly... bruery does it right. probably does this stout thing the best, as far as i’m concerned. i’ve had your BVDLs, your TG big guns. They don’t compare, really.

A- pours a thick and opaque taupe with mahogany edges and a deep tan head that dissipates quickly. No lacing. S- like any good Bruery stout, the aroma burns the nostrils and clears the sinuses. Chocolate, vanilla, See's caramels and espresso are great. Toasted marshmallows and graham crackers. Some minor earth and barrel notes towards the end. Roasted hazelnuts mingle throughout but never stand out. Strong ethyl alcohol wraps it up and drowns out any competing scents. M- no doubt, heavy syrupy body. Flat carb. T- sugars cookies, cake batter, vanilla, caramel malts and chocolate get a jump start. S'mores and cloying pancake syrup. Hazelnut flavored Torani and bourbon in the middle that lasts through the flamboyant finish. Bitter, green twigs as it warms. Some mild charcoal and clay right before the alcohol overwhelms the ending. Hint of straw and zinc in the aftertaste.

Creamy dark pour with light tan head. Thick chewy stout with lots of creaminess from the hazelnuts. It’s like coffee with extra cream just how I like it.

Flaska 2013. (Thanks biggsbowler). Blytung motorolja i upphällningen. Doft av hasselnöt, nutella, vanilj, bourbon och div efterrätter. Härligt tung och varm. Härligt tung och mäktig. Söt och alkoholvarm, men inte så det stör. Kan förstå om man har svårt för den här. Den är verkligen brutal. Men gillar man den här typen av tungviktare så är den helt fenomenal. Delar en flaska med Karl, som vi inte lyckas få i oss före det blir lite väl sent.

750 ml. bottle. Pours almost black with a very small beige head. Aroma of bourbon, malt, chocolate, and nuts. Taste is bourbon, roasted malt, chocolate, hazelnuts, vanilla, and brown sugar. Great to sip on.

750 pulled out tonight by Syndicate!! Darrel wields the beer penis tonight!! Pours thick and black (as expected) head is short lived.. nothing when it comes to lacing or retention. Nose is very nice... oaky chocolate with tons of barrel presence.. Unfortunately for me, the nut presence is very artificial.. Not "nutty" but extract... Not necessarily a bad thing, but it definitely could be less extract forward. Grey Monday is everything that all the huge ABV Bruery beers deliver on... big vanilla and chocolate.. oak and hazelnut candy... I dig it for sure, but it is an ABV and sugar bomb that isn’t good at all when delivered in a single glass.. Too sweet and the hazelnut extract is an error that I expect from Mr. Rue. Glad I got a chance to try this one... Seriously.. Darrel is an animal!! But for my palate, Grey Monday/Black Tuesday/Chocolate Rain are Diabeetus bottles.

750ml bottle in a teku. Pours black with a small, beige head. Aroma of bourbon and oak, chocolate and roasted malts, some hazelnuts, sweetness, vanilla, and some alcohol. Flavor the same with a lot of bourbon and nuttiness but a little too sweet for my liking. Thick texture. A cool beer but I could never drink a lot of it.

Location: Bottle shared by dbarnold, 9/26/14

Aroma: The nose is bourbon/booze, vanilla, some chocolate, and nutty notes
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a fairly thin head and some light lacing
Flavor: The taste is rich and sweet, fairly complex, with lots of vanilla and bourbon flavors
Palate: The body is rather full, with a sticky feel, and a whole lot of heat throughout the palate
Overall Impression: This is a well-made beer, but it is just too hot right now. It would probably improve with some age, but right now, the boozy flavor is too strong.

Had it a day after having Black Tuesday. This one was not that sweet with a more earthy feeling to it. Also a bit more balanced. Hazelnuts were present only in the aftertaste. Definitely a sipper.
