Again thanks to Miketd and Fiver29 for hooking this up for a small Friday tasting.
A: Deep cola black hole looking color with a small but sufficient head. Decent legs but not much lacing.
S: Interesting. I imagine taking some cocoa nibs and soaking them in soy sauce. After that you would take that old bourbon barrel you have out back that your Uncle Cornelius picked up for you that you thought would be good to throw some of your Aunt Mae's famous maple syrup in. Now throw those nibs in that barrel and add some grain to the mix with a little malt. Shake vigorously chill and serve. You would have just recreated Black Tuesday.
T: Read my thoughts on the smell of this beer and translate that to your taste buds. Pretty straightforward.
M: Definitely the highlight of this brew. Viscous. I should probably just keep a spare bottle in my car in case I start leaking oil. Good carbonation.
D: 25.4 oz = 24 hours. Definitely something to share. I have to say this is a very unique and interesting beer. I don't feel it is worth all the hype, some maybe but not all of it. Very good don't get me wrong but you Cali guys can just keep holding on to those bottles for yourselves.

Standard 750mL Bruery bottle, poured into a snifter glass. 2013 bottle.
A: Black. Very little head or apparent carbonation. Almost no lacing. Flows oily.
S: Some roasty-ness, bitter fruits and booze. Sweet too.
T: Similar to the smell. Big boozy beer with lots of biter fruits. Not as much coffee/caramel/bourbon as expecting, but its not lacking. Very excellent. Doesnt taste like 19% either, thats not to say you cant taste the alcohol but it works well, it tastes strong, it works well but doesnt taste like im drinking 19%.
M: Oily and coating. A great thick feel, it coats the mouth.
O: I have had this beer sitting in a beverage cooler for about 5 months, anticipating opening it. I finally opened it, it wasnt what I expected (I was expecting more bourbon), but it was amazing in what it was.
