On Tap at the Bruery Tasting Room
Served in a taster glass
Had this beer Tuesday October 30th at the Bruery Black Tuesday release party
A: Pours black as night, with only a slight brown head. Only minimal effervescence. Pronounced alcohol legs are visible. Unofficial ABV communicated by the tasting room staff was 19.5%. Yikes!
S: There is a strong boozy bourbon smell to this beer. Multiple smells presented vanilla and some nondescript nut aromas.
T: Milk chocolate and bourbon are the dominate flavors of this big sweet stout. It might have been me but I did not taste the hazelnut flavors, but only a slight nuttiness. This could have been a result of the food I was eating at the time. Surprisingly there was no alcohol burn on the finish. Only a lingering milk chocolate aftertaste. With all of the flavor additions it is very evident that the base of this beer is Black Tuesday.
M: This beer has a different mouthfeel than the 2012 Black Tuesday which was tasted before this beer. While not quite as thick, Grey Monday coats the palate with a oily sheen. Not a bad effect, but would limit the amount of this beer one could tolerate in one sitting.
O: This beer did not taste how I had anticipated. I was expecting Black Tuesday with Nutella stirred in. While Grey Monday is a great variant of Black Tuesday there are others that I personally like better (Chocolate Rain). Overall, I would recommend trying this beer, you wont be let down.
