4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2013 Snifter, on draft at the new tasting room. Surprisingly, much more mellow than even my aged bottles of Black Tuesday have been. Nice notes of cocoa nibs without the overwhelming sweetness of straight BT. A really solid beer, though I wish the vanilla came through more. Look forward to revisiting this some day.
e: revisited, sweet

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle courtesy of André. Pours blackish dark brown with a small mocha head that quickly dissipated while leaving some sparse trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and boozy with roasted malts, caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood, dill, green chili, coffee, chocolate, moist soil and heavy bourbon alcohol. Taste is heavy sweet, bitter and malty. Mouthfeel is viscous, syrupy, round, astringent, boozy and near full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, syrupy raisin molasses, thick chocolate, vanilla and bourbon. Over the top for sure but also quite delicious.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2016 Bottle shared thanks to KVN. Slight gusher. Almost black with light brown fizzy head. Massive vanilla and chocolate, brandy and bourbon, chocolate mousse, loads of sweet vanilla things with soft roasted malts, strong chocolate and booze. Crazy dessert notes with lots of alcohol. Very sweet and under medium bitter. Full bodied with alcoholic finish. Just massive, but the alcohol level is a bit ridiculous here, couldn’t finish a bottle between three people.

DLD taster. Big dark bold RIS. Hits all the right notes... Major dark chocolate presence on nose and palate. Smooth

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Highly acclaimed variation on The Bruery’s Black Tuesday theme, at Bruery Sucré Tasting in Bruges. Thin, pale greyish beige, quickly dissipating head over a hazy black beer with warm yellowish mahogany brown edges, like Black Tuesday. Complex, intense aroma of bitter chocolate, sherry, fig, shoe polish-like phenols, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, cocoa, beef broth, coffee grounds, whisky, candied cherries, dry thyme and indeed vanilla, but less strong than I had expected. Candied sweetness in the mouth, raisin, candied cherry, hint marmelade, soft carbo (almost flat), thick and oily mouthfeel, thick nutty, caramelly and eventually very dark chocolatey maltiness with a soft roasted bitterness to it, coffeeish, with overwhelming liqueurish alcohol growing to great intensity in the end, as is the case with ’standard’ Black Tuesday; vanilla and peppery hops are there too, but the booze overpowers most other flavours in the very end. A bit over the top for me, like most of these super strong Bruery exclusivities, but seductively rich, too seductive not to enjoy it - this type of beers force you to very slow sipping in small quantities, and in that sense, they certainly deliver what they promise. The moment you cross this border in terms of quantity or velocity, they become very tiring in my opinion, but considering their daring intensity and substantial complexity, I will not take that into account in my rating.

This group of bottles during the Bottle Share was amazing and outstanding. Flavors and aromas of chocolate and dark fruits. So freaking good.
