Since this was the newest version of BT at this year's Black Tuesday release party, I went with it first. Overall, I found it very agreeable. But as I learned more of the backstory on it I was trying to find the marshmallow and graham cracker notes. I kinda found what I thought might have been the marshmallow sweetness, but fir the life of me I couldn't nail down the graham cracker. I was talking to one guy who was going apesh*t over his enjoyment of the graham cracker notes--guess I wasn't so lucky.

Or was I? Still, I quite enjoyed this version. But as i worked my way to the BT, (which is phenomenal this year) I wasn't looking to go back to the S'more at the cost of not having more BT.

Yet, if I could get another chance at trying S'more Tuesday again...I certainly would jump at the chance.

On Tap at Black Tuesday release, 2011.

An interesting spin on BT as it's brewed with Graham Crackers and Marshmallows.

Not as good as BT, or Chocolate rain, but still a very good beer. Smooth for as thick as it is, great sweet, bourbon/chocolate aroma.

Session #1 tasting at the 2011 BT release Party

A: Flat. Looks more like cough syrup than beer. But of course the same could be said for all of the BT variations. Min lacing and dark as dark gets.

S: I had a panel of 4 judges in my group. Some only got bourbon, a few got the chocolate and vanilla notes. The stand out to me was the mash-mellow notes. How did they do this? Did they put actual roasted mellow and graham inside the cask with BT? I'm not seeing any chunks in my brew... the plot thickens.

T: Over the top. When you were a kid how much did you love hot chocolate? Welcome back to youth with this adult version. Man is this decadent. No way I could drink a whole bottle, but would like a 375 with friends. Very interesting and enjoyable.

M: Velvet wash. Better than BT.

O: Hope to try again, but given the difficulty of making such a brew it seems unlikely. Formal request on how I turn my BT into S'more!

Sampled at Black Tuesday release party, session 2.

Review from notes.

A: 2 to 3 oz pour (had more than 1) served in a small tasting flute glass. The beer is black an oily, with dark wood hue along the edges, with no real discernable head, or carbonation, though the beer coats the glass like milk.

S: In short, I would wear this if it were a cologne, as I could smell this all day. Marshmallows, graham crackers, chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, some light oak & leather hide notes as well. Some heat burn in the nose, but in a pleasant way.

T: Decadent, but balanced. All the layered flavor are present, notes of graham crackers, bourbon, vanilla, rich chocolate, oak, and roasted malts. Like a liquid smore with some smooth bourbon in it. The flavors are both easily picked out, but also not overwhelming.

M: Heavy mouth feel & velvety viscosity, even though it's right out of the firkin & essentially flat. Temperature was just right.

O: Very good. Lots of balance, as all the flavors can be picked out, and yet none are overbearing. It also really does taste like a smore, no missing the distinction. Tastes Like a real smore by the campfire, if this were bottled, I'd have a real smore along with it.

On tap from a firkin at the 2011 Black Tuesday release.

Appearance: Black, brown chocolatey colored on the edges. No head for this beast.

Smell: Chocolate Rain-ish, can smell and almost taste Graham Cracker, slight toasted marshmallows, I pick up more Graham Cracker, boozy aroma - you know your gonna get hit with the alcohol in the taste.

Taste: Chocolate, some oak coming though, vanilla bean for sure... not some much taste of the Graham Crackers and Marshmellows, if anything it's slight.

Mouthfeel: Big beer, full bodied, light carb, very smooth, silky, tad boozy but not over the top. Yum Yum!

Overall: A fun beer that was successful. Some people picked up more marshmellow while I picked up more Graham Cracker (which I love). Only knock was that I would want more GC and Marshmellow in the taste/body of the beer.

Tyler at the brewery said it was pretty complicated to do with the toasted marshmellows, getting them toasted and then into the barrel turned out to be harder than expected (marshmellows can be sticky bastards when heated/toasted). It was a fun experiment and I wish I had S'more!

On tap at the Bruery for 2011 Black Tuesday release.

A: Pours an opaque very dark brown, no bubbles or head.

S: Whoa, s'mores. Dark chocolate and graham cracker, barely perceptible marshmallow, along with some nice bourbon and vanilla. A little dark roast coffee in the background.

T: Like the smell but tends more towards melted chocolate. Again, a little bourbon and vanilla as well. Alcohol is a little noticeable, but substantially less than Black Tuesday. Leaves behind a cocoa residue on the tongue, like when you make hot cocoa from scratch.

M: Full body and a little creamy, mouthcoating, but basically no carbonation.

O: Incredible beer. They really got this right. Delicious and flavors are very well balanced. At 18.3%, this is ridiculously drinkable.

Between this, Chocolate Rain, and Black Tuesday, this was my favorite.
