Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate moderate chocolate, coffee, maple syrup, light vanilla, oak, and alcohol. It pours a dark brown, virtually black, with a minimal beige ring for a head. The flavor starts with sugary chocolate, molasses, and sweet maple syrup. The finish has light-moderate coffee and a touch of anise. Itís medium-full bodied with a slick mouthfeel. Overall, the coffee is there, but it struggles to get by the sweetness. Itís still very tasty.

Bottle: Dark brown pour, closer to black once it hits the glass. Looks thinner than expected. Meager tan film recedes to a very thin collar. Aroma of rich, deeply roasted coffee beans, oily & fresh with a light undertone of bitter chocolate fudge & roasted malt. Canít smell the 19.2% ABV at all, smells very smooth. Heavy flavor! Very robust. Huge coffee bean profile, French roast style with a lightly smoky flavor, nice induced bitterness, a hint of creamy sweetness from the chocolate malt, & a bit of brown sugar. Alcohol is more noticeable on the palate for sure; but not hot at all considering how high it is. Simply warming. Mouth feel is thicker than it looked, but not as creamy or chewy as the likes of Black Tuesday or its other variants. A huge, robust beer, & a pretty great one.

hopdog (8933) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2014
750ml bottle. Poured a black color with a thin sized tan head. Chocolate, coffee, bourbon, vanilla, and some wood. Alcohol burn down the throat as it finishes - but it is almost 20%. Sweet but not cloying.

madvike (2728) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle - Pours black as oil with a thin tan ring of head. Nose is a little rubbing alcohol, not much coffee, real sweet dark malt, brown sugar--just a mess. Taste is the same--sharp, boozy, warm, sweet. Some coffee, lots of chocolate, and molasses. Thick, slick, and not much carbonation. Just not good.

DesertDevil (525) - Arizona, USA - AUG 27, 2014
2014 750-mL bottle. Rather pungent nose of spiced, earthy coffee with a definite vegetal tone, dark chocolate, musty oak and a hint of bourbon. Pours cloudy dark brown without a head. Dark chocolate and spicy coffee blend for a solid taste, along with red chili flake, cinnamon, cardamom and very boozy bourbon. Relatively thick body with a sweet and spicy lingering finish. The best coffee beer the Bruery makes.

Habanero (2615) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2014
Bottled. Pours deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma coffee, roasted malt, caramel and dark fruit notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and moderate bitter with an alcohol bite. Full bodied, oily textute and soft carbonation. An excellent Impy.

Shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul. The beer has a similar appearance to the others in the Black Tuesday series. Aromas of huge roast, chocolate, cacao, vanilla, coffee, oak, booze. Huge flavor. Thick bodied with fairly low carbonation. Coffee and bourbon with chocolate. Mild bitterness. Such a gargantuan beer. Chocolate and booze. Mild sweetness and palate coating. Yum.

750 ml bottle shared by Lunch, thanks Paul! Pours a still dark brown/near black with dark maroon brown hues when backlit. Aroma is dark fruits, lactic tang, cocoa, bourbon and coffee. Flavor is Black Tuesday with coffee right down the middle. In the middle of an epic tasting, Iíll have to come back to this.
