drunkenpolack (319) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2012
The smell and taste on this beer is simply amazing. Full of chocolate and I mean full of it. Second comes the vanilla and bourbon. Not as strong of a bourbon flavor as BT as the chocolate takes over a bit here. Just a pleasure to drink.

Peacehammer (615) - California, USA - JAN 26, 2012
On cask at 2011 Black Tuesday. Very minimal head. aroma of all chocolate. Taste is very similar to chocolate milk, without losing it’s black tuesday characteristics. Extremely smooth and easy to drink. One of the best beers I have ever had.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Chocolate Rain!! Courtesy of dcschiller at the Black Friday Tasting. It pours up a nice dark mahogany supporting up a tan head. The aroma is a mix of yummy rich chocolate, bold booze, fudge brownie and more chocolate. Wow! The taste is similar with delicious decadent chocolate and rich fudge as well as dark chocolate with thin ribbons of vanilla. Around the edges of the flavor is the expected booziness and then a touch of heat into the finish. This is supposed to be big and brash and decadent and it sure as hell is, love it!

Damico (2452) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2011
The beer pours darky murky root beer brown, close to black with almost no head retention. The aroma is a lot of booze with some nice vanilla notes. The flavor has a lot more delicous sweet chocolate notes, light vanilla notes, and smooth booze that is easy on the palate somehow for the ABV. The body is medium which is surprisingly welcomed considering it could be a lot thicker.
