Thanks to berntholer for sharing this one. If you want to smell & taste alcohol, molasses, sugar, coconut and artificial vanilla (Bruery trademark); this is your beer. Sugar all over the place, I’m instant diabetic. f you would like to drink stuff like this, it is cheaper to eat a Bounty and mix it with some Coca Cola. After the regular Darklord, this is again an overhyped American one. To me, it is rather Chocolate Drain. kbudd19 (1019) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle from birdmachine and the doodler Thanks guys! Black thin pour, not much head to speak of which isn’t surprising given the abv. Aroma..holy shit balls, its a cup of brownie batter, with lots of oak an bourbon. Taste, well I poured way to much of this, it is very sweet, not cloying per say but you best like rich desert beers, lots of chocolate and vanilla, finishes with hits of oak and bourbon, hides the booze better than its BT predecessor. Personally I like Black Tuesday better but this was a really fun beer to try, make sure you share cause getting through a bottle of this on your own would be like that one time you thought it be cool to chug four litres of milk.

Tasted at a bottle share in a hotel room after the most recent Jackie-O’s bottle release. Wow, can’t believe this is getting cracked.. Solid 3oz sample, here. Looks unimpressive... Very dark brown color, no head or lace. Wow, the nose... Too intense, too sweet up close. I had to smell it with at least a foot in between. Lots of vanilla, cocoa, massive sweetness noticeable in the nose, makes me nervous to take a first sip.. Wow... First sip... Tons of massive dark chocolate syrup, and some light coffee. Bigger body. Drying finish. Lighter carbonation. Lots of cookie dough. Bigger sweet taste. A moderate to bigger alcohol heat, some light burn, but not an uncomfortable amount. Damn interesting, tasty stuff to try. Aside from the obvious alcohol (mild for 20% though), a bit too sweet for my taste. A pleasure to have the opportunity to try this, though. Very tasty, interesting stuff... I wouldn’t be eager to chief a whole 10oz pour, though. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 1, 2014
2013Bottle, thanks tommy. Pours dark mohageny with a fast fading tan lace. Nose is big and syrupy chocolate, fresh vanilla, bourbon. Really smooth mouthfeel for the strength with a rich chocolate milk type flavor. Enjoyed this much more than expected.

Poured from our Reserve Society delivery into a snifter a darkest brown black with a thin head.
Aroma is WOW dark fruit boozy cocoa vanilla bourbon.
Flavor is incredible. Flat out pruney raisin bourbon with a domination of chocolate & vanilla like a job.
Overall a smooth lovely beverage eons above many other brews in this category. LOVE this shit!!! 18% makes it a sipper and happy to do so. Another reason The Bruery is an outstanding brewery. Signature beverage for sure! zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - FEB 18, 2014
(bottle - 750 ml) Dark black pour with a tan head. Lots of roasted malts and chocolate with some dark fruits. Flavor is big roasted malts with lots of cocoa and a big bourbon and dark fruit finish. Got to get more to age. OPIE788 (337) - Ohio, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle. Big chocolate, vanilla and bourbon in the nose. Similar flavor with a bit of dark dried fruit (think raisin or prune) and loads of alcohol. Really good, but could use some age. JustDrinkIt (261) - Arizona, USA - FEB 14, 2014
Dark brown pour with no head. Aroma of bourbon and vanilla, chocolate, dark fruit. Flavor is bourbon, cocoa, vanilla, mild tart fruit. ABUSEDGOAT (2760) - California, USA - FEB 6, 2014
Black pour, moderate to small tan head, some lace/retention - which is good for how strong this stuff is. Aroma of chocolate, barrel, vanilla, darker fruit, high alcohol, light roast. Full bodied, sweet, alcoholic. It’s really decadent but the alcohol heat and cost ($40/bottle or $34 with reserve membership) take away from it.
