look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Tampa Bay Brewing Company snifter.

A: Deep brown with garnet highlights around the rim. Basically opaque except around the edges. Forms a thin tan head that fades fairly quickly, and low visible carbonation.

S: Bourbon and oak, vinous, tart cherries and some acetic character, roasted malts with some chocolate notes.

T: Follows the nose well - tart cherry, acetic, restrained bourbon flavor, oak tannins, roasted malts, and a touch of chocolate. Finishes tart with lingering vinegar acidity.

M: Lighter body than the appearance suggested, but not at all watery. Carbonation sensation on the low side. Alcohol flavors are obvious, but certainly not overly hot.

O: Very tasty. The sour flavors from the Oude Tart dominate the Black Tuesday character, but it's a nice blend. Significantly easier to drink than I thought it might be. Recommended.

Serving type: bottle
