2010.Chocolate, coffee, bourbon, booziness. More bourbon than I care for, more chocolate than I require, and the coffee was OK. Black, small head, a ring of lace. Lots of coconut flavour, not unpleasant. Some vanilla, it is very rich and smooth,Thanks Tom for hooking me up.

Johnsense (1177) - - MAR 14, 2012
2011 bottle. Black pour, 1 finger of head giving away to ta thin ring of lacing. Aroma of bourbon, black chocolate and a touch of vanilla. Bourbon, vanilla, dark chocolate (85% cocoa) booze which is to be expected for a beer this strong though surprisingly drinkable. Couldnt imagine having anything after this. Thick mouthfeel, full bodied. I’m a fan, but I wouldn’t line up for hours for this.

ryanfolty (2320) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Date: March 9, 2012 Mode: Bottle Source: mibirder DeScription: Opaque dark brown pour with some head that faded quickly. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruit and bourbon. Taste was similar to aroma with a blast of sugary and chocolate deliciousness, dark fruit then comes, followed by the toasty warm bourbon finish. Silky smooth and medium to full body.

Bottle. Very dark brown pour with a smaller off white head. Awesome nose of sweet fruit, roast, wood, and bourbon. Slick palate. Taste is incredibly sweet - candy sugar, wood, and bourbon. Dessert like. Killer.

From notes. First reviewed 8/9/2011. Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip. 2010 bottle. In my tulip, Black Tuesday lives up to its name, being black all the way through with just a slightly lighter edge if I tilt the glass to make it thin enough. Lots of gooey dark chocolate and fusel alcohol in the nose, with a little coffee and a fair amount of dark roasted malt to back it up. Each sip starts out very sweet and feels boozy going down. Molasses, dark chocolate, some vanilla, and brown sugar add further sweetness to caramel and roasted malt flavors. This has a very full body with medium carbonation. Although, I wonder if it would be possible for a beer with this thick of a body to have any more carbonation or whether the body would simply crush it. There is definitely a full burn going down, which is slightly unpleasant because it feels unnatural. There is no bourbon or other flavor that accompanies it, it is just there for its own sake. This was a good beer and I think the Bruery executed what they wanted out of this beer, but I think it is just too over the top for me.

Atom (2036) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle shared by mattyb83 and mtjoesph, pours dark brown/black with a thin tan head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, vanilla, dark fruits, and licorice. Sugary, sweet, syrup, here comes the heart burn. Taste of vanilla, molasses, caramel, marsh mellow, dark fruits, bourbon booziness. Where as there is a level of appreciation for this one it is just too sweet and overall too much to really enjoy.

2011 bottle thanks to thome50. Black in color with a small khaki film of a head. Looks like what an imperial stout generally should. Lots of caramel, vanilla, burnt sugar, and dark fruits in the aroma. Not bad, really, but sweeter than I like. Wow that is sweet and sugary. Oh my god, and it has a good amount of booze. Not just a warmth is left after a sip, but it fucking burns as it goes down. I really can’t drink too much of this, as it is just super sweet.

2/25/12. 2011 750mL bottle with big thanks to ericandersnavy! Nice black pour with a small brown ring of head. Hugely sweet aroma with a big alcohol burn... big sweet and big alcohol. Really, really sweet entry - dark fruits, port wine, caramel, etc. - followed by a touch of vanilla and lingering sweetness. Man, people aren’t kidding... this is ridiculously sweet.

At HallingHansen Grand Tasting, thanks for sharing. Pours a pitch black beer with a chocolate head. The aroma is malt, chocolate, licorice, roasted and tobacco. The flavor follows the nose with additonal alcohol. The palate is bold with sweetness and alcoholwarmth. Overall a really good beer.
