Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - OCT 13, 2016
One of the many variations on Black Tuesday, with cocoa nibs and coffee, tasted at Hopishop, thanks Olivier for sharing. Loose, bubbly, pale beige, unstable head, black robe with warm, hazy burgundy edges. Intense, very pleasant bouquet of warm chocolate sauce, caramel, cognac, brown rum, coffee liqueur, cocoa powder, bayleaf, fried mushrooms. Condensed sweet candied onset (date) with a meaty umami edge and sourish, elderberry-like undercurrent, softish carbo, very oily, thick, vinous mouthfeel gliding heavily over the tongue and leaving behind a trail of thick caramelly, chocolatey and toasted malt bittersweetness adorned with an extra coffee and cocoa accent in the finish, accentuated by a spicy hop punch and a lot of heating, cognac-like alcohol, drying. Over the top for me in terms of alcohol, like many of these super-strength Bruery beers including Black Tuesday (though in this one it feels even more burning), but nevertheless an absolute delight to savour in small sips.

sjogro (2851) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2016
Sampled from bottle courtesy of mr svartvit. Dark brown pour with quick dissolving head. Big sweet and deep roasted malts. Big alcoholic, grapes, balsamico, notes of coffee. Big sweet, and some light sour. Medium body, low carbonation. The alcohol really burns through the palate. Chocolatey and sweet.

Maakun (4066) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to Kevin, 2016 version. Very dark brown with short lasting light brown head. Vanilla, chocolate, bourbon, strong alcohol, quite some spices, brown bread, marzipan, raisins. I dont get much coffee though. Quite sweet with strong alcoholic bitterness. Full bodied with burning alcoholic finish. Its decent, but stupid alcoholic, totally over the top.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a small head. Aroma of coffee, sweetness and chocolate and roasted malts, some more sweetness, ethanol, and some oak/bourbon. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Thick texture. A cool beer but not necessary.

Bottle at Grisefest. Black with a small off-white head. Aroma of coffee beans, toffee and caramel, chocolate and vanilla. Sweet, somewhat sugary roasted flavour with chocolate and coffee notes. Pretty good dessert style stout.

Taste is heavy vanilla, oak, prunes, lots of alcohol, heavy coffee, light roast, nutty. Bit too heavy alcohol for my taste, but otherwise lovely.
