Absolutely spectacular stout. Sweet, dense, creamy and one of the best stouts out there. Incredible balance between chocolate, coffee and vanilla. A definite sipper. Wish I could get some more. The only way to improve this would be to age it with cacao nibs and vanilla.

This ranks up there with Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Proprietor's Stout. Got to share this awesome Bruery's Black Tuesday at a Alchemist Heady Topper tasting that I did in Chicago on 6/5. After the Heady Topper was gone, the guests dragged out the Bruery's Black Tuesday bomber and a couple of 12 ounce bottles of the Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Coffee Shout.
Both beers were top of the line brews, but I would give the edge to Black Tuesday. Just a total joy to consume; especially with all my new friends that came to share my Heady Topper Tasting.
