This is a true monster of a beer. The full brunt of the 19.5% ABV and strong bourbon character pack a hell of a one-two punch.
It pours from the bottle like oil from the drain plug on my car when I've gone 15k miles without a change...dark and thick. It looks truly syrupy in the glass and they'll probably need a chisel to clean the glass fully.
The bourbon aroma is intense as it wafts out of the glass and up your nose to rip the hairs out by the root. It is so overpowering and imposing that I can't detect anything else in there.
I've had to put myself on a tongue transplant waiting list thanks to this beer. Right before it killed my last tastebud I recall a ton of bourbon with copius amounts of chocolate and coffee. They were however not copius enough to consider ganging up on the bourbon in an attempt to get some foreground action. The bourbon rules this beer with an iron fist and dissent will not be tolerated.
The mouthfeel is surprisingly light for the intensity of the flavor and syrupy look. I think the bourbon must have scared the body away. In place of the body he has appointed his son, the esteemed Mr. Bourbon Burn, as Vice Chancellor of Black Tuesdayville.
All things considered, this is not a very drinkable beer but under threat of violence from the bourbon I have been instructed to wrap up this review on a positive note. It actually is pretty damn good in small doses but drinking a bottle would put a man six feet under.

Thanks to my brewing buddy Steve for this one.
Pours up black with brown edges. Quickly fading brown head. Nose is chocolate malts, booze heat, raisins, black cherries, caramel. Tastes of all of the above, huge bourbon and oak, and then some. Thick bodied, smooth mellow carbo. Insane!
