Aged this beer a little while longer, which just about wiped out the coffee taste, but did mellow out this high octane Imperial Stout. Motor oil in the glass, deep, smooth bourbon accents, every sip delightful.

Poured from the bottle into a Bruery snifter glass.

Deep rich dark body, a sort of blackened mahogany red color, with a lather rich and thick topped three finger mocha to tan head. Creamy topped, almost milkshake like, wonderfuly presented. Solid rich aggressive and bold looking imperial stout.

Aroma is filled with excellent creamy various tones. Rich touches of chocolate, vanilla and cream. Mixing in a little bit of coffee and it comes off like a nice thick machiatto, with a dollop of whip cream somewhere. Small touches of barrel heat as well, almost smokey.

Wonderful palate. Creamy rich tones with an excellent thick controled body. Vanilla with more touches of fruity strawberry ester mixing. Blends extremely well with milky dark chocolate bitterness, and a soft coffee quality. Controlled astringency on the finish, with a wonderful round oak tone of fruit and whiskey like quality.

Excellent take on a coffee stout, with interesting fruit like hinting angles.

A - Dark brown pour, lots of legs on the sides of the glass. Frothy toffee colored lacing.

S - Chocolate, some alcohol, and paper. The nose falls way flat, I'm sorry. ;o(

T - Chocolate, alcohol, spicy oak, alcohol, oak, alcohol.

M - Big medium body to borderline full bodied.

O - It's like being b*tch slapped with a bottle of alcohol.

Maroon foil capped 750mL bottle acquired through The Bruery’s Society. Bottled 8/31/17. Served in a Bruery snifter. Enjoyed 1/6/18.

Pours a dark, near-black brown with a full three finger pillar of khaki foam resting on top. A large central patch of retention spreads to an uneven collar which imparts a few wide trails of lace.

Smells of coffee, dark fruit, cooling alcohol, some bourbon sweetness and a little woodsy character.

Taste follows the nose remarkably. Pleasantly bitter coffee, dark fruit, bourbon, subtle oaky char, dark chocolate, burnt caramel, fruit skin and some vague yeast, all wrapped up in a hearty hug of alcohol. It’s big, bold and boozey but easy to drink nonetheless.

Fairly full, almost syrupy feel with restrained carbonation. The aftertaste is strongly alcoholic with a nice mix of coffee, bourbon and dark fruit.

Thank you Bruery. I enjoy the original So Happens It’s Tuesday but the addition of coffee really kicks it up a notch. I hope this becomes an annual release.

Thanks, Chris!

Got this surprise when I got into my office on Dec. 18 from Chris (via Lesley). Was surprised. Told him I was going to pay for it, but of course he ignored that part. I love beer from The Bruery, coffee beer and bourbon barrel-aged beer and this had all three. Description online read, “So Happens It’s Tuesday is a dark and delicious bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout, with subtle roast and pronounced notes of oak, vanilla and chocolate. It harkens back to a simpler time, where stouts are cordial and more approachable than other days of the week. The addition of freshly roasted coffee beans from Ryan Bros. Coffee lends credence to the simple existential observation that this beer can be enjoyed in all of life’s moments and seasons.” Originally gave the base So Happens It’s Tuesday a 4.25 on Untappd on Nov. 8, 2015. Probably going to be better here.

Poured a black color with two fingers of frothy khaki head. Calm setting underneath with just a few noticeable bubbles. Good spotty lacing. Good retention. (Sight - 3.75)

Smelled roasted coffee, smooth bourbon, oak, chocolate, dark cacao nibs, vanilla, char wood, fudge brownies and cocoa powder. (Smell - 4.25)

Taste followed the nose for the most part. Got roasted coffee, chocolate syrup, fudge brownies, toasted oak, smooth bourbon, vanilla, cacao nibs, cocoa powder, milk chocolate and semi-char wood. That 14.6 pct. ABV was well hidden. (Taste - 4.50)

Full body. Sticky texture. Average carbonation. Long, smooth, warming finish. (Feel - 4.75)

This was a terrific coffee bourbon barrel-aged stout. Just lovely. Might have underrated this slightly. (Overall - 4.50)
