Finally, a year late, I got to have this on cask,
A: Pours a dark brown with a mild cask head. Some lace, very nice colour.
S: Lots of chocolate, bourbon, the cacao really comes out and differentiates it from BT. A soothing but complex smell.
T: Direct bitter cacao nib flavours. Sweet residual sugar throughout with a hint of acidity in the finish.
M: Full-bodied, but thins out a bit with the acidity towards the end. A big beer though for sure.
D: A very nice stout. I was a bit underwhelmed as I missed it last year and have been waiting for this moment. Not as good as regular Black Tuesday for me, but in the whole scheme of things it is well made in its style.
Serving type: cask

Reviewed from notes. On-tap for the Third Anniversary Party at the Phoenix Club. 5/29/11.
A: Pours an oily, deep black with a faint dark tan head which leaves a couple of spots.
N: Dark cocoa powder, milk chocolate, roast, vanilla, dark fruits, boozy, molasses, warm caramel and maple.
T: Complex. Dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel, bourbon, brown sugar, aged wood, charred leather. Amazing.
M: Full body and light carbonation. Rich, oily, creamy, sweet, syrupy, bourbon soaked chocolate cake.
O: Stunning and in awe.
Serving type: on-tap
