Bottle kindly shared by MisoW, huge thank you. ABV 18.5%. Almost black color with small beige head. Very nice aroma of roasted malt, hazelnuts, chocolate, bourbon, wood. Extremely nice taste of dark chocolate, whiskey, coffee, vanilla, caramel, hazelnuts. Extremely tasty. sonnycheeba (6126) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 22, 2015
2013 bottle. Pours dark cola brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is extremely rich cookie malts, booze, oak, vanilla, nuttiness, and dark fruit notes. Flavor is extremely rich and malty with heavy booze and barrel character, and tons of caramel sweetness. Full body and soft carbonation. BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Backlogged rating, Bottle Share: Yepper, looks just like all the Black Tuesday variants, jet black with small head head and oily tears. Right away the nose tells you this one is a tad different, heavy roasted hazelnut espresso and bittersweet mocha. A fair amount of dark fruits, charred barrel, vanilla, molasses and sherry like oxidation create a nice flavor profile. Maybe cause I had this one last it was seemingly a tad easier to finish... or I am getting buzzed and don’t care anymore. Ahead of Chocolate Rain and Mocha Wednesday but just a nip below the base Tuesday.

Bottle @ RBBWG 2015. Thanks Elmanana! Oily texture, almost no foam. Flat carbonation. Light roastiness, vanilla, bourbon, molasses, caramel and hazlenuts. Very sweet and boozy. Sticky. Ok, but not my favourite imperial stout. 77ships (9895) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2015
Thanks to ElManana + 1! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBWG IV. Waxed with vanilla-scented wax, interesting, a bit Spinal Tap. Black with no head. Nose is umami, soy sauce, lots of it & quite boozy. Taste is boozy soy sauce, mocha, vanilla, light herbs, thick bourbon, barely picking up hazelnut here, thick malts, sugar. Very simple, I was hoping for more here & a beer this strong probably should have more complexity. Very boozy & little in the way of carbonation. This is no Chocolate Rain for sure, it is slightly better than Black Tuesday.

Bottle @ RBBWG 2015 shared by elmanana. Opaque pitch black color, very small off-white head. Smell and taste malts, huge bourbon, huge alcohol, and alcohol. And alcohol. So that says it all. ElManana (2079) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle at RBBWG. Pours black, dark brown with no head. Aroma doesn't give me high hopes. Lots of alcohol, some chocolate, malts. Nice chocolate, hazlenut, nuttela. Awesome but too boozy to drink lots of. User287050 (20) - - FEB 1, 2015
Had this and Mocha Wednesday on the same day with friends.
Pours dark with very short lived head.
Smells delicious, lots of vanilla, a little hazelnut, you can tell it will be very sweet.
Boozy flavor, not a lot of nuts but plenty of the regular BT taste in there.
Great beer but it´s way too big, 125ml bottles would be so much easier.
