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.

9/24/13 bottling date. into a tulip.

wax smells amazing...insane like hazelnuts... pours a dark black with a great beige head. vanilla, hazelnuts, slight bourbon on the nose. very nice aroma. the taste starts off hot but quickly balances out with the bourbon and hazelnuts. ABV apparent though, this is a big beer. very full bodied...mild carbonation.

overall just a great imp stout. smell is world class. taste is awesome.

Pours just like all of the Black Tuesday variants... thick, dark brown, and minimal head. The nose starts with rich chocolate and vanilla, this is followed by mild hazelnut notes. There's definitely a little nutella action going on in the nose. Notes of bourbon pair nicely with the big chocolatey base beer. The taste is very sweet with chocolate, roast, bourbon, and oak all present. The finish is hot and boozy. I'd say that this treatment is quite a bit more smooth than the base beer with a little better melding of flavor. Mouthfeel is thick, syrupy, and mildly carbonated. Overall, I rank this one above Black Tuesday, but below Chocolate Rain and Mocha Wednesday.
