2016 offering served in a tulip glass. Sweet Mexican sugary taste up front, w some butterscotch and raisin. Defiinitely oaky backbone, slight bitter taste. Mild expresso taste, w coffee on the nose. Taste like a piece of fudge melted in your mouth, as you died and went to heaven. Very boozy, watch out.

Day 2- Bitter choco and coffee. Highly recommend killing the bottle on day 1

overall the class of the night of the bruery tasting night. a great looking dark pour from the bottle. smells of coffee and chocolate with a little sweet caramel flooding from the glass gets the mouth watering. taste fully follows the nose and does not leave you looking for more. feel is very good with an nice coating left in the mouth.

Pours pretty much the same as Black Tuesday (base beer here) with a jet black thick body and a brown head in the 1/2" range. Aroma rocks the coffee hard, and then its all bourbon fudge after that.

Taste, decadent, amazing. Thick ass chocolate malt, bourbon heavy notes, plenty of rich coffee. Mild oak. Love the mouthfeel and how it covers up the massive abv relatively speaking. Carbonation on point, some vanilla creeps in as well with the coffee.

I might like this as much as Black Tuesday, but the increase of $10 price wise just because there is coffee is a little befuddling. I mean, its an awesome beer, but I don't understand why the variants are $10 more. . .

Had this last night at the Bruery Terreux. A 2017, but i have a few bottles that i plan to open at different times in the coming years. This was an opportunity to try it fresh as I've been told the coffee taste tends to drop off the longer a bottle ages.
You have to understand & enjoy Black Tuesday in order to appreciate this beer. Not for the faint of heart, a beer that's best appreciated in a snifter. People have said that it's best served not too cold, but i say pour a healthy amount into your glass right out of the fridge and sip. Different flavors come out as it warms. Who is to say you won't like it cold, cool, warm? You be the judge.
