4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black pour, big bold brown head. Shit tons of sugary sweet bourbony goodness, diabetes, chocolate, hazelnuts, diabetes, fudge brownies. Really more drinkable than recent vintages of Black Tuesday. A few years ago I would have given this a perfect 5. Not today, but it was pretty ok...in 3 oz pours max.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 31, 2012 Black in color with no head. Smells very much like Black Tuesday. Alcohol, chocolate, slight hazelnut note, vanilla, and bourbon. Some oak, a bit of burnt sugar, dark fruit, and roast. Lots of alcohol, bourbon, and vanilla flavors. Some chocolate liqueur, mild hazelnut, light roast, coffee, and burnt sugar. The hazelnut comes through much more as it warms. Nice mouthfeel, slightly oily, in fact..

Served in a Bruery tulip. The nose off of the bottle is absolutely spectacular with notes of vanilla, chocolate, and strong hazelnut. Itís not as strong out of the tulip, but still quite nice. Flavor cuts back a lot on these characters in favor of the base and quite a bit of alcohol. Really full body. I could sniff this all day, but the flavor doesnít match up.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle shared by urbancaver- thanks again, Cam! Pours a deep brown-amber thatís opaque in the bulk of the body and light around the edges. No head to speak of. The description "Black Tuesday with Hazelnuts" is also sufficient as a 4-word review of this beer. Thatís how I would describe it to anyone whoís had Black Tuesday. Hazelnut on vanilla, bourbon, chocolate, caramel, oak, bourbon, coconut, molasses, and marshmallow. Smooth, sweet, and a little warming, though itís still shocking that these beers are over 19% ABV. I know theyíre not for everyone but I love them; this one is no exception. By the way, scented wax? Fun.

Bottle. Dark, viscous reddish brown pour, with a thin almost zero head. Huge syrupy sweetness, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, molasses, and light notes of nuts. A real sugary sipper for sure, with boozy warmth. The main contribution of the hazel nuts was making this beer quite a bit smoother than the reg BT, which I had side by side. Good, amazing how strong this beer is.

18/I/13 - 75cl bottle @ De Hopduvel - bottled: X/16/12 (2013-27) Thanks to Bobochamp for sharing the bottle!
Clear red brown beer, no head. Aroma: caramel, some chocolate, bit nutty, alcohol, sugary, disinfectant, cocoa powder. MF: no carbon, full body, boozy touch. Taste: caramel, chocolate, bit nutty (maybe just because I know), sugary alcohol, vanilla, molasses, mocha, more alcohol. Aftertaste: chocolate, molasses, little bitter, earthy touch, nutty, caramel, some alcohol, mainly chocolate and caramel though. Itís a dessert and not a bad one!
