On tap at The Salted Pig in Riverside, Ca.
Pours opaque black with a faint tan head that quickly disappears completely and leaves no lace.
Smell is dominated by bourbon with faint hints of vanilla, chocolate and hazelnuts.
Taste is a sweet mixture of dark chocolate, dark roasted malt and hazelnuts with accents of oak and vanilla. Bourbon flavor is strong toward the finish but is not as overpowering as it is in the aroma.
The texture is thick and syrupy with low carbonation.
This is a very well executed, complex and huge imperial stout. Seek this beer out and share among friends.
Serving type: on-tap

Black Tuesday with hazelnuts. Bottle into a tulip. Note: the wax smells like hazelnuts. Awesome.
The brown of melted dark chocolate, opaque everywhere save the very edges, where its a lighter cherry-red. Thin head of off-white.
SWEET! Chocolate syrup, boysenberry, hazelnuts, vanilla, toasted oak, alcohol. Beautiful.
Better than Black Tuesday. Syrupy chocolate, hazelnuts, vanilla, a little oak, toffee. Extremely rich, very sweet.
Very spicy on the tongue. That alcohol doesn't mess around. Syrupy medium body, thick and heavy. Very mild, tingly carbonation, though the alcohol adds something.

Certainly not for the tepid or uninitiated, the bigness of this barley-type elixir seems to trump that even of stout, in favor of deep savory flavors, wonderfully oxidized taste, and a lavish texture.
Its sheer blackness is only impeded by its chalky cocoa haze, casting a brownish depth. Decadent aromas of port and sherry wrap around flavors of chocolate fudge, espresso, cashew and blackstrap molasses. Early sweetness fare similarly as its tawny liquor clings to the mouth like silk.
Its full toasted sweetness is taste and felt on the middle palate while tangy alcohol reinforce the taste of fortified brandy, grape and plum, leather and oak. All the while, a foundation of cake batter and toasted soft nuts provide a savory earthiness that's stern and unyielding.
Its incredible oily body is viscous, dense and indefinite in its linger. While strong vinous and rum alcohols thin the body slightly, a granular texture of silt seem to rise from a cocoa powder base and gives the stout a bit of grit.
