On tap in the Bruery tasting room.

5oz. pour served @ 45 deg. allowed to warm to room temp before finishing the last sip.

A: very dark brown. Viscous and opaque. No head what so ever.

S: Roasted, espresso, chocolate, bourbon.

T: Very much like the nose. Roasted coffee, up front then creamy and dark chocolate. The high ABV is well hidden. Some dark fruit. Very drinkable. As the beer warms, even more of the flavors of vanilla and chocolate come out.

M: The only fault I find in this beer is here. A little oily with no carbonation. But really how much carbonation can you expect at this high ABV.

OA: Better then Black Tuesday and Grey Monday. Far more drinkable then the other two. The sweetness of the base beer is perfectly contrasted by the bitterness of the coffee. Black Tuesday is a beer you have to share, Mocha Wednesday is a beer you don't want to share.

2021 edition. Coffee comes across as burnt, hides the ABV well. Tasty, but not something I'd seek out again.

2016 bottle courtesy of hefman.
(~5 yrs old at this point).
L: almost pitch black but not super thick. Minimal to moderate mocha head.
S: chocolate, coffee, bourbon.
T: Chocolate, vanilla, bourbon heat, oak. Roasted malt, burnt coffee.
F: medium, fair bourbon burn.
Overall: pretty good especially for epic abv, but not great. A little thin, a little too boozy. Coffee flavors are old the old/stale/burnt side.

Appearance was tan to dark, nose was a little coffee and some sweetness, taste still had great coffee and plenty of oak and vanilla, feel was velvet and smooth similar to a good barrel aged wheat wine. Amazing that this beer packs a 19%+ abv. Overall, still drinking fantastically four years later.

2014 Bottle. Great complexity. Bourbon, chocolate, and coffee come through. A great sipper to share!

Bottle dated 1/10/19 poured into a DFH Signature Glass. Body is inky black with a quickly receding soapy head that left zero lacing. Aroma is bourbon, malts, coffee, and dark fruits. Taste is alcohol, cherries, chocolate, coffee, coconut, and vanilla. This beer gets more complex as it warms. Overall this isn’t better than Black Tuesday, but it’s still a world-class BBA Stout.
