750 pulled out tonight by Syndicate!! Darrel wields the beer penis tonight!! Pours thick and black (as expected) head is short lived.. nothing when it comes to lacing or retention. Nose is very nice... oaky chocolate with tons of barrel presence.. Unfortunately for me, the nut presence is very artificial.. Not "nutty" but extract... Not necessarily a bad thing, but it definitely could be less extract forward. Grey Monday is everything that all the huge ABV Bruery beers deliver on... big vanilla and chocolate.. oak and hazelnut candy... I dig it for sure, but it is an ABV and sugar bomb that isn’t good at all when delivered in a single glass.. Too sweet and the hazelnut extract is an error that I expect from Mr. Rue. Glad I got a chance to try this one... Seriously.. Darrel is an animal!! But for my palate, Grey Monday/Black Tuesday/Chocolate Rain are Diabeetus bottles.

750ml bottle in a teku. Pours black with a small, beige head. Aroma of bourbon and oak, chocolate and roasted malts, some hazelnuts, sweetness, vanilla, and some alcohol. Flavor the same with a lot of bourbon and nuttiness but a little too sweet for my liking. Thick texture. A cool beer but I could never drink a lot of it.

ben4321 (4473) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Location: Bottle shared by dbarnold, 9/26/14

Aroma: The nose is bourbon/booze, vanilla, some chocolate, and nutty notes
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a fairly thin head and some light lacing
Flavor: The taste is rich and sweet, fairly complex, with lots of vanilla and bourbon flavors
Palate: The body is rather full, with a sticky feel, and a whole lot of heat throughout the palate
Overall Impression: This is a well-made beer, but it is just too hot right now. It would probably improve with some age, but right now, the boozy flavor is too strong.

Had it a day after having Black Tuesday. This one was not that sweet with a more earthy feeling to it. Also a bit more balanced. Hazelnuts were present only in the aftertaste. Definitely a sipper.

750mL bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out bourbon barrels, toasted hazelnuts, cocoa and vanilla. Flavour is surprisingly not a diabetes bomb, with bourbon, vanilla, moderate alcohol and toasted nuts. Somehow this isn’t cloyingly sweet like Black Tuesday and Chocolate Rain, though it gets sweeter and sweeter with every sip. Finishes with notes of orangey chocolate, with a boozy burn. Quite nice in very small amounts - my favourite of their stupid high ABV impie stouts, but that’s not saying much.

GothGargoyle (1574) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2014
Black with a good beige head. Aroma is hazelnut, bourbon, chocolate, raisins, dates, booze. Full bodied, slick mouthfeel, sweet on the palate with a slightly boozy, warming finish. Taste is chocolate, hazelnut, bourbon, vanilla, brown sugar.

slowrunner77 (6600) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 3, 2014
"Close to Black Tuesday, very sweet and bourbony with some chocolate and roast, with the addition of ample roasted hazelnuts in the nose and flavor. Not really better or worse, but a nice change up. Great beer, not quite black. Still think 13-15% would be better than 18-19, but what’d ya gonna do?"

Ionlyrate5s (103) - New York, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Aroma of Tuaca and Ameretto. Exceelent initial thick rich malts with nutty chocolate character. The alcohol heat stays through exquisetly. Finishes with slight nutty anise and scothy oak. mGreat

Bottle from homer321. Thanks! Split two ways. This is a heavy hitter to say the least. Pours a thick dark brown with almost no head. Aromas of boozy bourbon, peanut butter, booze. Taste is sweet and very hot. Flavors of bourbon, marshmallow, coconut, peanuts, booze. Diabetes in a glass, this one delivers. Wowza.
