MI Mega Tasting III, provided by the one and only hoppymeal. Seems I'm thanking him a lot lately, and for good reason. 750ml wax-dipped bottle. Poured into RBSG 2010 snifter.

A - Pours a syrupy black, ever-so-slight tan-colored head on the initial pour which vanishes quickly and leaves only the base beer behind.

S - Huge sweetness, tons of chocolate, vanilla, oak, alcohol. Decadent. It's pretty messy right now...lots of booze, cloying sweetness, vanilla. It needs some more time, IMO.

T - Again, pretty much a mess. Chocolate, booze, vanilla, oak. The booze is very evident, and at 18.5%, I can understand why. It's like sipping chocolate syrup spiked with booze.

M - Full, rich and smooth, creamy finish.

O - The alcohol is a bit too much right now. I found 2009 Black Tuesday to be much the same upon release, but after a year, it really mellowed out and came into it's own. For what it is, it's not bad, just not outstanding and a little too much hype. My 3oz pour was more then enough.
