Tasted at the late night tasting after the Grand Tasting at RBWG Asheville. Pours thick, oily black with a thin tan head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is tons of vanilla bourbon, with traditional milk and dark chocolate malty imperial stout. The flavor is really more focused on the bourbon, fairly sweet vanilla, fudge brownie, really bourbon forward. The body is full with light carbonation and a long bourbon and brownie finish. Very nice.

Bottle. Black pour, with a tan head. Sweet malts, roast, vanilla bean, raisin, bourbon, milk chocolate, brownies, ash, and some alcohol. Nice.

Just plain righteous. Vanilla bean really compliments the deep dark flavors of the base beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured dark black with aromas of vanilla, chocolate, roast, and some light coffee. Flavors are huge vanilla with some light coffee and chocolate. A solid beer overall. The best of the variants.

Bottle... Black Tuesday took a paternity test and found out that this beer was its daddy!... Midnight-black ale with a small, creamy, brown head. Great retention. The luxuriant aroma delivers loads of chocolate crème, vanilla, toasted coconut, caramel and pistachios with undercurrents of tobacco and molasses. Full-bodied and uber-velvety with laid-back carbonation. The flavor boasts bourbon, vanilla, toasted coconut and fudge brownies. Boozy, but balanced – not overbearing. Warming, nourishing finish. Magical. Thanks to newcigarz for popping the top off this world class treatment of a mediocre base beer!

Sample @ RBWG Asheville After Party. Brown pour with a small head. Nose of toffee, rocky road fudge, Cows Tails. Taste is of deep, rich chocolate malt. Some vanilla accents. Sort of hot, a touch sickly. Burnt brown sugar. Full body, thick and expansive on the palate.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle shared by Bruce. Aroma is vanilla, molasses, and chocolate. Pours soupy black with no head and only slight brown lacing. Taste is supurb with molasses, vanilla, licorice, coffee, and chocolate in perfect harmony. Mouthfeel is a little cloying thanks to a lack of carbonation. These guys have really stepped up their game. Loving this one.
