On tap at The Bruery's new tasting room. If you told me this was a slightly effervescent chocolate liqueur, I'd believe you. Sweet and syrupy without being sticky or sickening, great chocolate and vanilla notes, and quite the abv wallop!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Just a small beige head on top of a black beer. Nice and full aroma of dark chocolate, warming alcohol, wood/bourbon, vanilla and more. Quite sweet in taste, but held in balance by a soft roasted bitterness. Full bodied, with dark chocolate, bourbon, alcohol, a hint of red fruint (porto) and liquorice. Nice one to enjoy with some friends.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
No head, pours a completely dark black colored beer.
Smell chocolate, dark chocolate, alcohol, spices, creamy, vanilla, light earthy. Deep and dark, also heavy.
Taste creamy spicy alcohol, loads of chocolate, alcohol/spices, oak, vanilla.
Full tasty but seems to be too much, hits my ceiling... Goddamn!
Aftertaste of chocolate, alcohol, spices and roasted creamy malts.
Low carbo, full body, creamy texture and a soft creamy mouthfeel.
This beer seems to hit my limit, itís too much, it ís almost out of any good beers, itís good but itís strange.

75cl bottle @ ZZT IV. Pitch black color, no head, slight light beige lacing. Smell malts, alcohol, chocolate. Taste malts, roasted malts, chocolate, alcohol, slightly bitter. Perfect dessert-beer. Medium carbo, full body, too much alcohol. Good beer, heavy beer, but I think itís just too much. For me itís just over the edge.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2014 Pour from a 22oz 2012 bomber. Small head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is chocolate and strong alcohol. Flavor and mouthfeel are amazing - similar to Black Tuesday but more chocolate and heat.
