750ml bottle. Holy shit. Big, boozy, sweet, sweet, vanilla extract, sweet, Hershey’s Milk chocolate, fusel alcohol, sweet aroma. Did I mention the massive amount of ethanol and sweetness on the nose. Pours a lighter than expected dark brown. No head. No lace. Virtual no appearance of carbonation. Aggressively boozy, harsh and unrefined on the tongue. Not as sweet as the nose would lead me to believe. Also not as sweet as Black Tuesday. Still... The raw vanilla extract and harsh alcohol on the tongue is pretty nasty. Makes no apologies about being 18.5%. Three flavors here: cheap chocolate, grain alcohol soaked vanilla beans and poorly distilled alcohol. Surprisingly thin and watery on the tongue with... Guess what? A shitty hot boozy finish. Tastes like RARE for sure. Thanks fellas!

Bottle @ ZEBF 2015. Black pour. Aroma of strong chocolate and vanilla, nice. Taste is really rich and deep, with full creamy chocolate, vanilla and a gritty mouthfeel in the finish. Awesome.

Thick silky chocolate, coffee, toffee, some vanilla. Great add-on to the Black Tuesday.

2015 vintage bottle. Dark brown mahogany pour. Aroma is light malt, light barrel, light marshmallow. Taste is vanilla, marshmallow, cola, oak, booze. Desserty without being quaffable.Good impy - as you drink more the alcohol gets less noticeable, but that might just be the intoxication speaking.

750ml bottle - pours an oily black with medium tan head . Vanilla and cocoa are the predominant aromas . Cocoa powder and chocolate syrup notes but not too sweet . ABV was very well hidden . An outstanding beer ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750 ml bottle. A nice swirly golden yellow wax on the bottle. Pours a jet black color with a initial medium white head that dies down to nothing. A big boozy nose, chocolate and vanilla. The initial flavor is all cocoa nibs, huge sweet chocolate, vanilla, boozy bourbon. Man, this is super hot. At times, it’s like drinking liquor. But the chocolate sort of saves the day. Boozy bourbon, very sweet. Hard to say here. This is awesome, and man it is fire in a bottle.

2012-14. Very smooth. Alcohol was hidden in all of it. The nose is very chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, some barrel and coffee. Taste is just wow. Has all flavors from the nose. This beer is complex but extremely drinkable. Definitely a beer to share due to the geatness and high abv.

Another gem by The Bruery. Ofcourse another brew with BT as a mainbeer, but they make some good stuff for sure.

750ml bottle in a taster at Plan Bee. Pours near black with a beige head. Aroma of oak, chocolate, roasted malts, sweetness from the insane amount of malts, and some light alcohol. Flavor the same with a great blend. Smooth texture. A cool beer.

Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is strong of chocolate, vanilla, lots of rich aromatics. Taste is sweet, rich, full bodied, very intense, not too much heat but just a touch. Overall, it’s a very delicious brew!
