The Bruery - Black Tuesday, poured into a Lawson's tulip.
Look - Pours a thin viscosity brown and settles black with minimal head. Not much lacing.
Smell - Chocolate malts and bourbon. Smells delish.
Taste - Rich chocolate followed by a nice bourbon warmth. Sweet oak vanilla finish.
Mouthfeel - Full bodied with medium carbonation. Boozy and warm but yummy. Definitely a sipper.
Overall - Great brew, pretty much the epitome of the style.

Opened a 2012 - 19.2% Black Tuesday on 1/4/2014 shared among 3 people.
Aroma: Amazingly complex aroma. Initially it smells a bit boozy but also has a good amount of chocolate and oak with a bit of vanilla at the end.
Appearance: Motor-oil black, pours thick with just a touch of head if you pour correctly. If you pour carefully anticipating head, you won't get any. Alcohol legs on the glass.
Flavor: A bit of alcohol heat, but that is to be expected. Oaky, chocolatey, coffee, vanilla, molasses, a confusingly slight hint of something almost fruity that I couldn't quite pinpoint. If I tried it again, i'm sure I would pick up on something new that I overlooked, there's so many different things going on in this beer.
Mouthfeel: Light-Moderate carbonation with a full body. Sweet, warm, and slick.
Overall: I enjoyed this beer tremendously, the variety of complex flavors make this a unique and delicious beer. It's got about as much flavor as I would think you could possibly get from a beer with an ABV this high. I've drank 10% stouts (almost half as strong) that have tasted boozier than this beer, and that to me is an amazingly well done job.
