Picked this up from a great trade with Mike! An aggressive pour yielded no head or lacing with a rather flat looking dark brown, nearly black body. The nose was incredibly big and incredibly boozey. Tons of dark fruit and chocolate fudge along with hints of vanilla, oak, raisins, and subtle hazelnut. The taste follows suit with huge boozey bourbon and chocolate fudge along with hints of raisins, tobacco, oak, port wine. and molasses. As it warms, the hazelnuts really emerge...beer meets Nutella. The mouthfeel is thick and syrupy, boozey and hot, with almost no carbonation. Overall, this was definitely better than Black Tuesday, albeit just as hot and boozey, but a tad bit more drinkable. The sweetness was dangerously close to cloying, but I think the hazelnuts gave it enough balance to make it a pretty enjoyable sipper.

Chocolate, coffee, bourbon, booze, caramel, raisins, toffee, oak, vanilla. Very similar to BT, but nuttier with the addition of the hazelnut. Did a side-by-side with BT and CR and this was in the middle of them with CR being the best.
