Bottle at Premature Blue Balls with Andre 160729. Opaque black beer with a small beige head. Chocolate and cocoa aroma, tar, hay notes, figs, hoppy, cocoa powder, some coffee. Roasted chocolate flavor, cocoa powder, tar notes, licorice, warming alcohol, dark chocolate, some hay. A bit boozy bit I like this!

Maakun (4483) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2016 Bottle shared thanks to KVN. Slight gusher. Almost black with light brown fizzy head. Massive vanilla and chocolate, brandy and bourbon, chocolate mousse, loads of sweet vanilla things with soft roasted malts, strong chocolate and booze. Crazy dessert notes with lots of alcohol. Very sweet and under medium bitter. Full bodied with alcoholic finish. Just massive, but the alcohol level is a bit ridiculous here, couldnt finish a bottle between three people.

DLD taster. Big dark bold RIS. Hits all the right notes... Major dark chocolate presence on nose and palate. Smooth finish... Incredible! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Highly acclaimed variation on The Bruerys Black Tuesday theme, at Bruery Sucr Tasting in Bruges. Thin, pale greyish beige, quickly dissipating head over a hazy black beer with warm yellowish mahogany brown edges, like Black Tuesday. Complex, intense aroma of bitter chocolate, sherry, fig, shoe polish-like phenols, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, cocoa, beef broth, coffee grounds, whisky, candied cherries, dry thyme and indeed vanilla, but less strong than I had expected. Candied sweetness in the mouth, raisin, candied cherry, hint marmelade, soft carbo (almost flat), thick and oily mouthfeel, thick nutty, caramelly and eventually very dark chocolatey maltiness with a soft roasted bitterness to it, coffeeish, with overwhelming liqueurish alcohol growing to great intensity in the end, as is the case with standard Black Tuesday; vanilla and peppery hops are there too, but the booze overpowers most other flavours in the very end. A bit over the top for me, like most of these super strong Bruery exclusivities, but seductively rich, too seductive not to enjoy it - this type of beers force you to very slow sipping in small quantities, and in that sense, they certainly deliver what they promise. The moment you cross this border in terms of quantity or velocity, they become very tiring in my opinion, but considering their daring intensity and substantial complexity, I will not take that into account in my rating.

This group of bottles during the Bottle Share was amazing and outstanding. Flavors and aromas of chocolate and dark fruits. So freaking good.

Boozy sweetness for the most part. A ton of vanilla, chocolate, toffee, cherries, all dipped in warm bourbon. Alcohol is hidden very well (under all that sugar). Its thick and syrupy. Low carb. Its good but too much sugar for me. Its a once a year beer to keep you warm and mess you up.

2013 bottle shared with wife. Pours the part with a thin tan head. Lots of boirbon, oak, vanilla, cocoa, full body, dry finish.

Un grand merci Dominique pour le partage! Cette bire est dcadente, peu subtile, intense...jaime a! Dabord le liquide est loin dtre noir. Celui-ci est brun fonc et mme peu opaque. Surprise. Est-ce le vieillissement en barriques qui en aurait aminci les des courbes? Possible. Avec cette absence de mousse et un pinceau de lumire qui perce le liquide, janticipe soudainement une bire plus mince et moins riche que prvu. Nez de gteau fort noire, de chocolat noir, de malts lgrement torrfis et dun alcool chaud de sud amricain. Les 18% dalcool on les sent! En bouche, lattaque est dirige par un chocolat noir mesur. a ne gote pas le chocolat artificiel et bon march dun calendrier de lavant. Lalcool prend rapidement le dessus au rythme o le chocolat se mtamorphose en caramel vanill. Ma bouche se sature cependant plutt rapidement, tout comme mon verre dont les parois taches par le sucre semble avoir t peint au rouleau.
