3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep oily black color with a subtle trace of khaki foam. Nose is full of boozy chocolate, sweet sugar some traces of nuttiness. The palate hides the booze with smooth silky but not overly thick mouthfeel. Lot of rootbeer barrel candy, vanilla bean, caramel and mr. goodbar flavors. Huge beer... was happy to sip a few ounces but not sure I could hit a full glass pour but I likes it :)

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ Greg’s apartment. Thanks to Wade for sharing. Pours a thick black appearance with a thin head. Definitely some cola like whiskey booziness in the nose. Nutty, root beer, vanilla notes as well. Mouth feel isn’t as thick as I expected. Actually pretty smooth flavor. Some boozy bite on the finish. Turtle dessert flavor. The hazelnuts add a really cool flavor. Cool beans.

This one poured a thick black color with a brown head. Aroma was of extremely underattenuated mpreial stout, dark fruits and chocolate. Flavor was similar, ltos fo booze, some barrel, not really much hazelnuts, pretty similar to black tuesday.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at DLD tasting. Pours a dark brown black without much head at all. Big boozy aroma. Taste is sweet with a slight nutty finish but the hazelnut isnt as prominent as the vanilla/chocolate black tuesday base beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... Pours dark brown and sits black in my glass with no head. The bouquet is a medley of toasted nuts, mocha and ethanol. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor offers sweet fudge and vanilla supplemented with some toasted hazelnut, but not as much as anticipated. Finishes warming, sweet and boozy. Dessert in a glass. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!
