The name say it all. But will you be crying tears of joy or pain? Itís that kind of beer. Initial impression is in your face dessert! Way too sweet for me because of the chocolate. Not bitter chocolate. Sweet milky dusty slick chocolate. Too much cocoa and not enough coffee not enough barrel. Too thin. No head. Without the big barrel it doesnít do it for me. I did a little blending of my own when I poured some Tart of Darkness and Chocolate Rain together now that was tasty.

Tap at Steinís Bruery Takeover. Pours opaque deep brown, not quite totally black. Small brown head that dissipates with some lacing. Aroma is wonderful, chocolate, whiskey, roasted malts, vanilla. Flavor is medium to very sweet, lightly bitter, very chocolatey with a chocolate vanilla finish. Medium plus body, quite hot, but actually not bad considering the ABV. This is special beer with a wonderful aroma that is worth (most) of the hype around it.

MrHangover (3605) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle, many thank to kermis! Pours a pitch black, daunting beer with a small head and no lacing. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, bourbon and loads of boozyness. Flavour is so much better than the Black Tuesday. Still very boozed up, but the chocolate and vanilla flavours smoothen things out a bit, making it a bit more drinkable. Mouthfeel is oily and boozy. This is a great beer!

Chipalsa (1311) - Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2013
2011 Bottle
Appearance - Murky brown, soft tan head
Aroma - Vanilla, oak, brownies, bourbon
Taste - Bourbon, chocolate syrup, soy sauce, vanilla extract

This was a pretty fun brew, and a heavy hitter as well. It was way too sweet, and once oxidated a bit, tasted a bit like soy sauce. Still, thanks for the experience Jordan mayn.

Thanks to Beer Savant for sharing a 2013 vintage bottle during his 50th birthday bash. The beer pours obsidian black with a thin foamy beige head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, bourbon and vanilla. Thick and syrupy body with flavors of bourbon-infused fudge, vanilla, burnt malt and coffee. The finish is boozy with a chocolate liqueur aftertaste. This is one of those love-it-or-hate-it sippers but I really liked it.
