Poured out of a 750ML bottle into a tulip

This poured jet black, with little to no head at all. Expected with that ABV.

The smell is really sweet- chocolate and intense bourbon smell is picked up instantly

Taste- strong alcohol heat right away, totally understandable though. Really hot, but the chocolate sweetens it up so much. Bourbon and oak in the finish. A lot going on in this beer that is hard to pick up the first time drinking it.

Mouth- Really hot and boozy taste and just coats the mouth. Warm and a little carbonation. This is def a sipper

Overall- This beer was great and I would love to have the chance to try it again with some age on it to see how it ages.

Black Tuesday has to be one of my favorite beers. This is the beer I use to judge other bourbon aged stouts against, and I haven't found many that stack up to this one. If you're a fan of strong, bourbon aged stouts, then Black Tuesday has to be on your bucket list.
