marcus (6493) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Pours near black with a transient tan head and a chocolate and alcohol aroma. There is a very hearty chocolate and vanilla flavor with a very warm alcohol trail. Complex and tasty.

dogfishho (588) - Bloomfield, New Jersey, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Small pours are best. Overwhelmingly sweet with what seems like more vanilla than chocolate in the nose and on the palate. Huge and sticky but decadent and delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dfonorow (1440) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle share at DLD 2013. Pour is black with minimal head. Aroma is of chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, dark caramel, and booze. Flavor is very sweet, borderline cloying - chocolate, caramel, molasses, and booze. A bit on the hot side but masked nicely by the huge amount of sugar.

JStax (2980) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2014
750 ml bottle poured into a mini-snifter. Pours a thicker brown to black. No head. The aroma has a thick chocolate and bourbon. Tastes super sweet. Lots of chocolate and bourbon throughout. Big, thick body. Low carbonation.

beastiefan2k (2421) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2014
750mL shared at a tasting. This was even worse than Black Tuesday. Aromas of dead yeast mix with overly sweet adjuncts. And a really thin body, weird. I could not take more than just a few small sips.

baraciisch (1880) - USA - JAN 17, 2014
Deep black in color... No head, pours like motor oil... Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate nibs... Flavor is less heat than the Black Tuesday, more complex, chocolate is very prevalent, notes of bourbon, sweet dark malts, molasses... Amazingly good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Westmeister (1750) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle shared with EricTeusink and jrob21. I am a huge sucker for gigantic bourbon stouts and this one hit it just right. The bottle was split 3 ways, but I swear I could have nailed by my damn self. Pours thick as hell as one would expect. Huge vanilla, cocoa and bourbon nose. Taste is really just explosive as it rides on the big sweetness and booze level. Doesn’t come off as 20%, though. A decadence of bourbon sweetness, chocolate, lots of vanilla. Booze is only noticeable on the warming finish. Thick mouth. Wonderful.
