Our infamous Black Tuesday is an imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels for over a year. Rich caramel, toasted malt, vanilla, burnt wood and anise are just a few of the many flavors in this rich, decadent imperial stout.

Review from memory, unfortunately. 2013 bottle served in a Duvel tulip. Got the bottle in a Reddit beer trade and split it with a friend. Served slightly cool, not sure of exact temperature.

A- Pours a very dark brown, which is much lighter and clearer than I expected. Pretty much no head.

S- Boozey nose, but that's expected. Rich and oakey.

T- Woahhh bourbon all the way through. Sweet vanilla and chocolate notes down to the burn from the booze. This beer is huge in every way. Almost a little spice character in there along with lots of dark fruits.

M- Thick and velvety, rather than aggressive. Light carbonation.

O- This beer was just a pleasure to drink.
