3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aivan olematon vaahto, mustanruskea väri. Perus IS tuoksu, ei niin intensiivinen. Tässä vaiheessa iltaa kuitenkin aivan maaginen. Kavereiden avustuksella totean: punaviinimäisempi. Vahva, vahva, en havaitse kuitenkaan TayZondaemaisuutta. Jeppistä.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75 cl bottle (18.5% abv) @ ISKTR 2014. Bottled on 04.12.2013.
Pours dark red color with a minimal head. Lots of vanilla and bourbon on the nose, chocolate, alcohol and cocoa. Sweet chocolaty flavor, vanilla, cocoa, alcohol, red wine notes, not so much ripe fruits like on the "base beer". Strong and relentless sweet tooth fairy.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle @ ISKTR 2014. Received from Ratebeer Summer Secret Santa 2014, huge thanks to ineedbeer!
Vertical with Grey Monday and Black Tuesday -
Pours pitch black with a smooth white head. Aroma of coffee, vanilla, roasty malts, sticky syrupy notes, bourbon, toffee, wood, cocoa and slight alcohol notes. Taste is sweet, roasty and sticky with loads of coffee, vanilla, cocoa, syrup, toffee, oak, bourbon and wood. Finish is sweet, smooth and slick with loads of toffee, syrup, oak, vanilla, bourbon and woody notes. Quite sweet and heavy, yet smooth and very complex. Exquisite. Feels more balanced than the regular Black Tuesday.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a pitch black color with a small amount of quickly disappearing brown fizzy head. Aroma is huge bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, booze. Heavy sweet bourbon vanilla notes in the flavor finished with a big boozy burn in the finish. Absolutely amazing beer.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at barcade, pours black with light off white head and no lace. Notes are chocolate, roast, figs, oAk, meat, light char, cherry and lots of booze. Aroma was best part with fudge and rich vanilla. It has some flavor going especially for the percent but the finish let’s you realize your still drinking a 20 percenter. Syrupy and full mouthful but not overly sticky. Typical bruery big beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had at Dave’s during dude’s party while his fiance away. This stuff is tasty and interesting, but at 19.5% it’s hard to have more than a few ounces. Too boozy(yes, I know that is what it is).

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
"one of the more inflated and hyped beers i’ve ever had, but I can totally see where that comes from. absolutely delicious and decadent on every level. they took Black Tuesday, an already great beer, and smoothed out the rough edges by adding cocoa nibs and vanilla bean aging. Soooo good. Definitely still on the rich and sweet side of things, but the additions actually manage to temper the sweetness a little. Bourbon, fudge, vavilla, dark roast, alcohol. 39 proof silk. This was the 2012 batch from the Bruery, coming in at a whopping 19.5%. While I love this beer, I wonder about the need to be so strong. I think at 13-15%, this may have been one of the best beers I’ve ever had..."
