maneliquor (3484) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2012
Bottle thanks to thome50. Cheers bud ! 2011 vintage. Pours a dark and oily black with no head to speak of, considering the booze that’s probably fair enough. I was quite skeptical when I was smelling this one. Loads of sugar, bourbon, vanilla, and more sugar. Very vegemitey and sweet. Was downhill from there. Super sweet and sticky. Bourbon and sweet chocolate give way to light coconut and a huge sweetness which overpowers any other notes. The booze is surprisingly restrained quite well but that’s probably because I can’t taste anything past all the sweetness. This beer makes me fear that I am going to contract diabetes over night. Massive fail of a rating and doesn’t deserve that whatsoever

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2012 2011 Vintage. 750mL bottle, pours pitch black with a thin tan head. Aroma is very decadent and desert like, of bourbon barrels, molasses, prunes and sherry - quite fruity and liqueur-like, and very hot. Flavour of intense brown sugar, sherry liqueur, molasses and loads of bourbon - huge boozy kick / very hot. Very cloying in sweetness - too much so to warrant a higher rating. I doubt this would have the ratings it does if not for the rarity. A nastily, cloyingly sweet booze bomb. Quite bad.

Black with very little head. Nose of caramel, bourbon, booze, toffee. Tastes of coffee, confectioners sugar, caramel, circus peanuts. Drank this following Dark Lord. This is better.

Easily one of the best beers I’ve ever tasted. Had some ’08 Abyss from Deschutes the same night. Black Tuesday wins hands down. Great nose, smooth from start to finish. Thanks DB. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jolo (1003) - Uppsala, Sweden, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 10, 2012
Bottle 75 cl (Thanks Konstifik). A dark brown color with a medium high, creamy, light brown head. An aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, butterscotch, plums and bourbon.The taste is heavy sweet and light bitter. A full body, oily and creamy body, soft carbonation and a long duration. A fantastic aroma and nice mouthfeel. A great beer.

SaintMatty (6886) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2012
750ml Bottle (At Jolo’s) - 18.5%. Black in colour. Roasted malt, plain chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Sweet, malty and chocolatey taste with notes of coffee, liquorice and plain chocolate. Rather rich, but it covers the abv very well.

Ontbeertaster (2362) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2012
Bottle, Spilt 2 parts me and 1 part a friend, got a lot of this one for my self. This one is very sweet, I had the 2011 edition. There is a very strong maple finish in the back and it is quite nice. A fair bit thinner then I was expecting. This is a really nice treat

Borresteijn (6499) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2012 75cl Bottle at AHBS. Black, thin brown head. Aroma is sweet, bourbon, chocolate, alcohol, vanilla, cognac. Flavour is very sweet, hard roasted malts, alcohol, dark fruits, caramel, molasses, bourbon, moccha, cognac, roasted and alcohol bitter finish. Fullbodied, fat mouthfeel, very thick stuff. Very good but rather hot beer. Re-rate, vertical of 2009-2012 at Sloshfest: Original rating stays, here are some things that stood out. 2012: very sweet, quite hot, but very good. 2011: Not kept very well I think, has some plastic, dead yeast. 2010: Really nice, thick, sweet, full-flavoured, lots of bourbon. 2009: Completely different beer imo. Aroma with lots of sweet and salty soy-sauce, leather. Flavour has way more roast and bitter chocolate, light soy touch. Great stuff.
