Infected. Quite tart. Probably drinkable, but the flavors were not quite right, unlike something like Tart of Darkness.

The nail polish and infected flavors were intense and hiding the roasted malt of the base.

Tastes like Tart of Darkness / cherry coke with a hint of pineapple (which might sound great, but this is not).


Edit: New Growler filled 12/01 not infected score : 4.41

Thanks to Callmecoon for sharing this one at Skuter's tasting.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, caramel, toffee, vanilla, and toasted coconut aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa powder and chocolate coconut candy flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that it tasty, but the coconut presence is slightly better in the smell in my opinion.

Serving type: growler.

Pretty darn good beer right here, my peeps. Wow. Really good. Like Truffaut during the 60's, this thing is at full speed. It's basically Shaquille O'Neal cut in half: not its massive, regular self (Black Tuesday), but still huge and dominating. Overall, it's just lighter in essence than it's big bro; and with the coconut added, it definitely has Raul feelin' wowie to the zowie.

First off the nose is incredible. Toasted coconut.
Now the appearance...it's fine.
Taste has a hint of the barrel aging with a leaning toward a roast and molasses, but the coconut lingers, beautifully. This is where the Bruery does it sooo well. They take the time to blend, and blend, and blend until they concoct a batch that melds the flavors they want, yet allows one to still discover the different flavors in the profile at different times during your imbibing.
Mouthfeel is hefty enough
For those who think Black Tuesday is too much of a force to be reckoned with I'd recommend giving this one a shot. Hell, even if you can handle BT, you should try this one.

Pours opaque black. The thin tan head quickly disappears completely and leaves no lace.

The smell is dominated by toasted coconut and dark chocolate with bourbon accents.

The taste is of bourbon, dark chocolate and strong coconut sweetness.

The texture is heavy bodied with low carbonation.

For those who enjoy chocolate and coconut, this is the one you've been waiting for. The taste is reminiscent of a bourbon soaked Mounds candy bar. I'm not crazy about coconut.

- 4 oz. pour into tasting snifter.
- Off tap at the Tasting Room on 19-Sep-14.

I tasted this one along side the other two variants: Cacao & Raisin and Vanilla Bean & Cherry.
Of the three, I thought this one was the best. The aromas was full of toasty coconut and the flavors balanced just right in the taste. I've never had BCBS Proprietors so I'm really interested to hear from others how they found this one compared to that.
