tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2011
750ml bottle. Holy shit. Big, boozy, sweet, sweet, vanilla extract, sweet, Hersheys Milk chocolate, fusel alcohol, sweet aroma. Did I mention the massive amount of ethanol and sweetness on the nose. Pours a lighter than expected dark brown. No head. No lace. Virtual no appearance of carbonation. Aggressively boozy, harsh and unrefined on the tongue. Not as sweet as the nose would lead me to believe. Also not as sweet as Black Tuesday. Still... The raw vanilla extract and harsh alcohol on the tongue is pretty nasty. Makes no apologies about being 18.5%. Three flavors here: cheap chocolate, grain alcohol soaked vanilla beans and poorly distilled alcohol. Surprisingly thin and watery on the tongue with... Guess what? A shitty hot boozy finish. Tastes like RARE for sure. Thanks fellas!

Tiny pour, from a bottle at a tasting / bottle share on 4-1-17. Pours a dark amber to medium brown with a small amount of beige head. Chocolate-covered raisin and plum scents. Boozy aroma. Delicious, sweet, fruity taste features flavors of prune, raisin, chocolate, almond, and Zinfandel red wine. Alcohol heat in the palate. Full body. The best of the approximately dozen beers I tried during the tasting. Memorable and really tasty.

Bit more flavorful than bl.tuesday, creamier, but still not too thick, I think it could or should be thicker... This is very boozy, i could only enjoy the first few sips. Once warmed up a bit more, the alcohol smell bites my nose, that is not a good thing.. Vanilla, caramel, cherry like notes, and peanut aftertaste - these things are good though

Tasted from bottle. Pours dark brown/black with minimal head. Aroma is dark chocolate and vanilla. Moderate bitterness with alcohol burn on the finish. Flavors of cacao and vanilla, bourbon, toffee, caramel and maple. Huge beer and very dangerous. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This one is a monster. I had a sample courtesy of the great Matt Kibbe at LibertyCon 2017 in Prague. Notes of noble alcohol, rum, raisins, mix with a lot of wooden vanilla flavors. Boozy, monstrous, with a helluva chocolate and dark brown notes. Definitely an amazing beer.

(The Bruery Chocolate Rain) Bottle 750ml at home. Served into a snifter, ABV 18.4% Dark brown to black coloured body, small dark brown head on top, kind of thin, with low retention. The aroma has bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, cocoa, fudge, chocolate cake. Taste is intense chocolate, fudge, chocolate cake, vanilla, nice bourbon notes, cocoa, alcohol. Thick body with soft carbonation. Sticky palate. Just amazing.

Suttree (6286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 7, 2017
It was...okay. I mean, it smelled nice, chocolate and vanilla and oak, but man, you can taste every bit of that 19.5%. Nice chocolate flavor, but it ends being too sweet and boozy.

Aminatchime (127) - BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2016
Heel donker bruin met beige schuimkraag. De geur is sterk alcoholisch en heeft toetsen van oud hout. De smaak is alcoholisch (zonder echt storend te zijn) en op en top chocolade. Daarnaast ook toetsen van hout. Zwaar maar wel Super voor chocolade fanaten.

JBPortland (1535) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - DEC 20, 2016
750ml bottle 2013 vintage pours viscous oily black with barely any head. Nose and taste are super sweet, sugary rich chocolate brownie batter, big roasty char and some smokey notes, hints of licorice, boozy, some vanilla, dark fruity chocolate, finishes cloyingly sweet, sticks to the mouth.

dysenteri (284) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2016
Bottleshare. Chocolate (duh!), vanilla, dark fruit, prune, figs, raisins, dates. Very fullbodied, its boozy but in a good way, its very nice hotness.

For all the hype Black Tuesday has and the fact that I really didnt enjoy it one bit, I thought this was great. Hid the booze surprisingly well as opposed to Black Tuesday and the vanilla gives it a nice rounded sweetness rather than a sugar driven kind of gritty sweetness. Like a high concentrate bitter dark chocolate dessert
