4oz pour into a Bruery tulip on tap at the Bruery for the Black Tuesday release.
A - Pours an opaque black with dark brown highlights around the edges when held to a light. No head at all. Pours very thick and syrupy, totally coats the glass wherever it touches.
S - Lots of milk chocolate, sweet vanilla, coconut and bourbon. Very sweet aromas, smells very smooth. Not much of an alcohol smell to this one...hard to tell its almost 20%
T - Taste largely mirrors the aromas. Creamy, milky chocolate dominates. Vanilla presence is quite prominant too and blends well with the chocolate creating a very smooth and creamy flavor. Hints of bourbon too. Again, not much alcohol presence detected, surprisingly.
M - Thick and syrupy. Absolutely still, no carbonation. This beer completely coats the mouth in flavor. Amazingly low perception of alcohol in this - this really goes down easily. Couldn't believe how smooth this is.
D - For a 19.5% beer, this is incredibly drinkable, dangerously so...very low presence of alcohol in the flavor (the other beers on tap had way more alcohol presence - Autumn Maple, for one). Should be a slow sipper, but tastes so good, it is hard to drink this slow. This makes a perfect desert beer all by itself.

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.

pouring it I was expecting it to have a thin mouthfeel, because that's the way it appeared as I poured. the smell was of vanilla and chocolate, and when tasted the mouthfeel was actually thicker than I had expected. right away tastes of chocolate and vanilla oak so good, and then a peculiar mapley finish as the liquid fades. This was truly a treat last night love this stuff would drink it all the time if I could.
