Chocolate Rain (Black Tuesday with Cocoa Nibs and Vanilla Beans)

Had high hopes for this one as I liked the Black Tuesday, but this was just brutal. Poured a thick black color with no head at all. Aroma was loads of bourbon, vanilla extract, fudge, booze, and burnt sugar. Flavor was so sweet it was almost unbearable, way to much booze burn and sugar, artificial chocolate and vanilla flavors and no underlying beer qualities at all really.

Bottle @ ZeeBra Extreme Beer Festival 2013. Black pour, no head. Aroma is fruity chocolate, alcohol. Flavor is sweet alcoholic, smooth bourbon, vanilla, chocolate and a bit boozy. Nice brew though.

Bottle from Bruery (redundant? Redundant?). Aroma and flavor or sweet-ass bourbon and milk chocolate. More characters you say? DIABETUS...DIABETUS...DIABETUS. Excellent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ a recent tasting... Poured deep, dark brown (not quite black) with a thin tan head. Holy shit! This beer is incredulous. Dense, boozy soaked grains with cocoa and vanilla. Delicate yet intense. One to truly sip and savor as this beer really grew more and more on my palate. Sweet toasted sugars like toffee and caramel too with more vanilla and simple syrup. Dark chocolate and creamy vanilla rounded it out.

Bottle @ ZeeBra. Aroma has big big roast, liquorice, chocolate, some ash, slight fruity notes and some alcohol burn. Flavour is rocket fuel liquorice goo, big roasty notes, intense alcohol. Keep it away from fire.

Bay leaves, spiced, chocolate, wood aging rum. Oily texture. Sweet chocolate starts, licorice and a very big burn towards the end. Heat donates from there on. Too much? I think so. (Zeebra)

Big thanks to Leighton for muelling me the remainding 1/4 bottle or so from a previous weeks tasting. 22/04/13 @CBC, Londres. Dark black with a very thin tan head that dissipates edgeward as bubbles. Nose is dark malt, marmite, booze, dark fruits, black forest gateux, demerara sugars, light smoke. Taste comprises roast malt, bitter dark chocolate, dark fruits, molasses, leather, treacle toffee, very rich in flavour and on the sweet side, however it holds together well to remain drinkable. Full bodied with moderate carbonation, slightly cloying, warming alcohol in the finish. Good stuff, again one to share between many but very drinkable for such a high ABV.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with medium tan head that lasts awhile leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is strong chocolate, wood, booze, and vanilla. Thin mouthfeel with very strong cocoa nibs flavor, vanilla, and roast. Alcohol present as it warms, but not overpowering. Really enjoyed this one, a very impressive imperial stout from the Bruery.
