UPDATED: DEC 23, 2015 "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..."

Draft pour at the Toronado tasting event. Pours super dark with no head. Cinnamon roll aroma with some vanilla and brown sugar. Tiny bit boozy, but how could it not be. What a smooth, easy drinking beer, with all things considered. Raisins and chocolate fill this beer full of flavor. So much going on here. Definitely a special beer here, and a must try for everyone.

skortila (5132) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2014
Bottled @ Zeebra#2. 10cl sample. The aroma has vanilla and chocolate mainly, alightly boozy tones, but not suggesting 19.5%. Black coloured beer with a thin, off-white head. The taste is sweet, has vanilla, chocolate, bourbon, light roast. Medium-full bodied. Complex. Very nice!

Thanks to nimbleprop (I think) for sharing this bad boy. Pours oily black. Nose has old leather, burnt licorice, coffee pot left on the burner too long, and of course smooth dark chocolate syrup. Taste is very sweet dark cocoa, burnt espresso, vanilla. Definitely a big beer, tastier than I expected.

750ml bottle pours an oily black with a ring of beige head. Legs like a scotch. Nose is like rocket fuel, raw vanilla bean, and I mean nearly GREEN vanilla bean, cocoa nib, grain alcohol, toast, raisins, quite a lot of toasted wood. Flavor has maple and birch notes, smoke, cakey, chocolate, raisin, vanilla, caramel. Hot finish. What a shock there.

solidfunk (7007) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Very thick and syrupy, like most super heavy Bruery beers. Pours syrupy dark brown with amber tinge. Not much head or lacing. Tons of caramel and booze. Finishes sweet. Thanks to someone for sharing this at Gene’s 10K celebration.

Bottle shared at Travlr’s 10k tasting. Pours opaque black with a small, frothy brown head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is chocolate, sweet caramel and vanilla, dates, figs and light licorice notes, bourbon nose. Flavor is sweet dark malt dominant, sweet chocolate, molasses, dark fruits, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Full body and light carbonation.

From a bottle at Bluejacket during Travlr’s 10,000th beer rating celebration. Pours a cloudy dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma of chocolate and plums. Sweet flavors of dark fruits. Boozy finish with lots of hot alcohol burn.
