bartlebier (3556) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2016
75cl, 2016? vintage freshly hunted and kindly hauled & shared by oldmanriver at Oct Brewpub, merci. - Archetypical viscous pour, Mars bar diluted in motor oil, a thin sheet of dark brown foam mirages. - Shines with a black hole wealth of caramelised sugars ranging from molasses, still classy pancake syrup over deep toffee and maple syrup, before coating them with bourbon honey and charred fondant. Manages to remain at least very pleasantly sippable as a malty chocolate bourbon, being basically a diabetes-inducing liqueur. I am missing some depth, but maybe aging can aerate this reduction. - Belgian footnote, comparing this with e.g. De Struise: I tend to miss a yeast profile to value these black hole ingredient additions as a beer (creation) or brewing art, but it is hard to deny that, just like some metal genres arising from the same culture of superlatives & Westward, then skyward expansion, this product ups and amps the ante of what can be though of the base product. Hence: rated as the lipsmacking moral question in a big boozy bottle that it is...

AROMA: Intensas notas a bourbon dulce, el carcter de la barrica predomina con notas a coco tostado, atrs vainilla y algo de la madera, dulzor como de azcar mascabado, caramelo, toffee, frutos oscuros como dtiles, higos, ciruela, algunas notas vinosas, chocolate dulce. SABOR: dulce, licoroso y decadente; las caractersticas de la barrica predominan intensamente, bourbon y coco tostado son las estrellas, atrs de ellos vainilla y algo de la madera seguido de un dulzor intenso nuevamente como de azcar morena/mascabado, caramelo, toffee, frutos oscuros como dtiles e higos, algunas notas vinosas, como de esos vinos dulces, ligeramente chocolate, se percibe el alcohol en cada trago pero nunca llega a ser agresivo; en el retrogusto queda un amargor medio bajo con larga permanencia de los sabores dulces, el bourbon y coco tostado. SENSACIN: cuerpo medio con sensacin pegajosa en boca, baja carbonatacin. El alcohol se siente en cada trago y en garganta al pasar el lquido como una sensacin caliente pero no agresiva, inclusiva se exhala el alcohol a la hora de respirar. RESUMEN: excelente cerveza, compleja y balanceada

manomarnypopis (57) - POLAND - NOV 23, 2016
Jezu jakie to dobre, mało piany, brązowo-czarne. Burbon, wanilia, lukrecja, anyż, drip, suszone owocki. Smak alkohol bucha w nos ale przyjemnie bardzo, grzeje aż miło, ciemna ostro lekko alkoholowa burbonowa palonosc, lodzio miodzio. Po godzinie dochodza suszone owoce i ziolowosc i alkohol mocniej wychodzi, super.

Korcz (1008) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Potężny Bourbon,wanilia, czekolada, jakieś nuty anyżu, cynamonu... Słodkie, wyklejające, potężne, niesamowicie beczkowe i bogate, wybitny Imperial Stout.

rami_pl (2233) - Warszawa, POLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Rami Rami is drinking a Black Tuesday (2015) by The Bruery at Chmielarnia Marszałkowska O kierwa. Ale fajnie beczka, wanilia, czeko, duzo ciala, lepkie, alko czuc fajnie, kiepsko sie opisuje wyjebistosc, bo lepsze niz opis

warto odstawic w szkle, zeby sie otworzylo... ale uwaga: nie za dlugo, bo przesadzenie powoduje zmniejszenie intensywnosci aromatow i troche wieksze wyjscie alko

fraternie (996) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2016
A massive and vinous brew, which communicates its bourbon barrel age over the entirety of its creamy texture. Dark as night, with presence of raisin and dark plum fruit that leads into spicy bourbon, marshmallow and toffee. Lingers incredibly long with barrel spice lingering. Insane heat covered up well.

cards04 (2695) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 13, 2016
Thanks kathouse. You rock. Pours a dark chestnut brown. Basically no head. Then again I cant imagine any beer at 20% ABV would have a lot of head. Aromas of toasted nuts, coconut, dark chocolate, hot bourbon. Flavours of molasses, milk chocolate, bourbon, coconut, booze. Not crazy hot on the finish. Oxidisation makes it drink like a sherry. Very good.

Zwart als de nacht. Crmekleurige schuimkraag. Aroma en smaken van koffie, (pure) chocolade, hazelnoten. Vol en halfzwaar van smaak. Lange plakkerige zoetige afdronk. Alcohol goed weggestopt. Gevaarlijk maar hl lekker bier.
