The beer pours out pitch black without any head.

The aroma has tons of intense bourbon. Alcohol is very obvious in this. Then there's sweet chocolate, vanilla, and then hazelnutes.

The flavor follows with a huge punch of sweet chocolate and then alcohol and bourbon notes. The hints of hazelnut come through towards the middle.

A big delicious beer as the hazelnuts are a enjoyable little addition. Tuesday is still not my favorite base brew. Alcohol comes through at 19.5%, though it isn't as obvious as it could be.

I brought this one to our monthly tasting last night, 2013 bottle.

A - Pours pitch black with a small half finger tall tan head, quickly dissipating down to next to nothing, leaving very small trails of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of intense sugary sweetness, fresh roasted hazelnuts, bakers chocolate, vanilla, molasses, dark fruits, charred wood and plenty of warming bourbon. All of the aromas I expected are present and it smells just as sweet as I thought it would.

T - Starts off with the intense sweetness - mainly chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits and molasses - quickly being joined by the hazelnuts, charred wood and warming bourbon burn. Finish is really sweet with some mild booze burn, lingering long after the finish.

M - Heavy body with moderate carbonation. Huge, sweet feel from start to finish makes it hard to consume more than a few ounces in a sitting.

O - A really nice rift on regular Black Tuesday. We drank this one right after a Chocolate Rain and I think I actually prefer that one to this, but only by a small margin. Looking forward to seeing how this one ages over the next few years.

Very dark. Garnet highlights. No head.

Intense bourbon. Lots of oak. Interesting nuttiness. Vanilla.

Sweet and chocolatey. This is big. BIG. The sweet chocolate and alcohol are a dominating character. Hazelnut comes through with some sort of Nutella note. Te residual sugars are diabetes inducing.

Full body. I mean full. Moderate carbonation. Good.

This is a massive beer. Frankly, it is too fucking big. Epically big. Bourbon and chocolate kill everything.

Wow... Christmas, Walt Disney, the memory of your granmama, and heaven; this is what conjures up to Raul while drinking the divine substance that is Grey Monday. Luscious, silky and glorious stout textures/layers/aroma/taste with a lil nip of roasted hazelnut.

Pinch me, my children. I am alive.

Vintage 2013 (9/24/13). Poured in to tulip.

A - Poured dark brown and settled black with a bunch of sediment in the glass.

S - Huge bourbon and vanilla notes up front with char and chocolate fudge. Not getting any hazelnut notes. Decadent nose that seems to mirror Black Tuesday.

T - Barrel qualities dominate - bourbon, charred oak and vanilla notes all come to the forefront. A big chocolate fudge presence and a very slight nuttiness comes through. As the beer warmed all the way up to room temperature, the hazelnut became more pronounced but it still wasn't as prominent as I expected.

M - Full body. Viscous. Light carbonation.
