HonkeyBra (4036) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2014
On draft at FoBAB2014. Pours a dark blackish color with a small tan head that dissipates into a ring around the glass. Aroma of chocolate and bourbon. Flavor is extremely sweet, hot, with some chocolate notes and sugar. Flavor is all sugar, chocolate, booze. Unappetizing. Bracingly sweet. Gross. Slick bodied. My 2 ounce sample was too much.

Bottle. Pours a slightly murky brown with a thin tan head. Bourbon and wood on the nose, soft caramel and chocolate. Warm chocolate, alcohol, slightly isopropyl, warm caramel. Really tasty and incredibly smooth. Lingering bourbon, caramel, toffee chocolate. Surprisingly good.

Sample @ home, thanks tiong!
Aroma has dark chocolate, alcohol and some hayish tones. Also some rubber typical to Mikkeller Black. Flavour has alcohol, salty licorice, sweet cocoa tones, semi-dark chocolate and rubber. Heavy stuff, alcohol balances the sweetness but comes through too much. Nice slow sipper still. I wonder how long would it take to finish that bottle by oneself...

Jultsu (745) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
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.

olio (9278) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
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.

tiong (6438) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
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.

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.
