Thanks to SaucerSam for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a medium to dark brown color with some red highlights and a tan head. The aroma is extremely sweet. I get a ton of brown sugar and molasses notes, as well as some wood, maple and vanilla. Unfortunately the flavor is just as sweet as the aroma. I get a lot of dark fruit and oak, as well as some brown sugar. I get some maple notes as well. I know Black Tuesday is a part of the blend but I get no roasted malt or chocolate notes. Very boozy. Thick, syrupy mouthfeel and low carbonation. I am very glad I got to try this one, but it was way too sweet and messy for my liking. Still, definitely a unique brew.
Bottle from trade with kmyers8807, the first trade we did, so the bottle is vintage 2012 at the very latest. 15%. Many thanks buddy!
So, very old but has been cellared under good conditions.
Dark brown to black with a beige head.
Aroma is malty with dark fruit, licorice, oak.
Taste: toffee, fudge, maple syrup, malty, oak, vanilla, milk chocolate, dried fruits, light herbal.
Balanced and very tasty. You certainly feel the aging, but also that the beer can handle it. Muggus69 (2807) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - DEC 31, 2017
750mL bottle from Carwyn Cellars, Melbourne
Deeep bronze body with dense tan head.
Aroma is proper immense - vegemite, molasses, dried figs & prunes, black fruits, chococolate, dark toffee, insane.
Thick, chewy, low carb, warming, almost hot, very big!
So intense - so much rich toffee/caramel, burnt things, black dried fruits - figs, dates, lots of prunes, burnt vanilla, over-the-top bourbon coconut boozey Malibu, creme de cacao - it's a bit of a chaotic mess that is sort of so awesome that it works. Needs a lot of time to settle down!

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2017 Complex, velvety, rich, smooth. The taste of all three beers can be found in this beer. Clear bourbon and oak. Heavy to drink. Good. Very good.

LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Overheerlijke bourbon BA old ale: bourbon, pruimen, chocola. Dikke textuur, genoeg koolzuur voor een fris gevoel in je mond. Heerlijk! pjotrapostou (412) - POLAND - DEC 20, 2017
Dość słodkie, w tle minimalna kwaśność. W smaku rodzynki, likier, treściwe, ale jak na parametry zaskakująco łatwo się pije. Świetnie ułożone, bardzo przyjemne. fiulijn (21516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2017
Bottle at Black Christmas 2017czlowiekmotyka (576) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 11, 2017
Dark brown color. Malty aroma, fruity esters, candies, banana, and huge alcohol. It appears to be quite messy.
I can drink it, but it's overpriced.
The best of the Bruerys I've tried. Alcohol level on spot (kind of noble). Heavy on bourbon notes, marzipan, toffee or caramel. Impressive. beerplace (2330) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2017
A pour from the bottle on Black Christmas V. Pours a hazy brown with a beige head. Aroma is bourbon and some candied fruits. Similar taste with lots of fruity notes. Nice.
