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.

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.
