Bottle. The pour is dark. The aroma is sweet with some hazelnut to it. The taste is very boozy and sweet. Very nice beer.

A - Dark black with a bit of reddish-brown around the edges and a thin finger of khaki-chocolate colored head. Fades fairly quickly.

T - Roasted chocolate and dark caramel malts, hazelnuts, Bourbon, vanilla, oak, black licorice, molasses, dark fruits, coffee, and booze.
M - Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a warming, sweet, and nutty finish.
D - Super bold and complex, and the hazelnuts add some great character.

Loved this beer.
Aroma was full of molasses, dark fruit, chocolate.
Appearance was darn near black with ribbons of burgundy.
Taste was excellent, although I wish I hadnít let the bottle sit for so long. It really lost a good deal of the macadamia nut flavor, but it remained sweet. Very little ethanol considering the ABV. Perfectly warming. Body was big, lush, velvety.

750ml waxed bottle. Thanks kegbear!!! wow this badboy pours a nice deep brown with a tiny bit of head that immediately dissipates. Aroma is really hazlenutty like a good flavored coffee. A hint of alcohol in it as well. The initial taste is some hot booze but then as it warms it mellows into a delicious nutty taste, this beer reminds a lot of Nutella.You can feel the alcohol in your throat and stomach but not really taste it. Wow damn delicious. Would definitely drink again if I could get my hands on it but thats doubtful since I am not a member of the Reserve Society. Once again The Bruery knocks it out of the park

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2013 Bottle. Pours the color of medium coffee with no head. Boozy aroma of bourbon and sherry with a hint of chocolate-covered dark cherries. Smooth bourbon on the taste with chocolate and oak tones with only the tiniest bitter nutty notes; quite sweeter than the first time I tried. Not nearly as hot as 2012 Black Tuesday; smoother palate as well. Just awesome.†

Bottle, poured into a tulip. The hazelnut in the wax had been smelling up my beer fridge for weeks. Pours brown with very little head. Aroma is bourbon, chocolate, cherries, and slight hazelnut. Flavor is very similar to regular BT, with maybe a little less burn from the alcohol - the hazelnut smooths it out. Great mouthfeel. I really enjoyed this one, but didnít get nearly as much hazelnut flavor as I was expecting (and thatís probably a good thing, thinking of Frangelic).

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.

Wowie. Many thanks to Dave for sharing his bottle. Aroma of butterscotch, chocolate, brandy, bourbon, tootsie rolls, and vanilla. Pours sticky dark brown and hazy with no head or carbonation (none expected). Taste is like a rich candy bar: caramel, brandy, vanilla bean, milk chocolate, and hazelnut cookie. Very hot so look out. Gets sweeter and hotter as it warms. This is about as close to tasting like Utopias as Iíve ever tasted. A rare treat!

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2013 Too similar to Black Tuesday to warrant a different review. Hazelnuts are faint at best. Pretty hot as well.
