Bottle into a snifter appears a dark mahogany with ruby clarity and no head formation.

This smells fruity with licorice and is overall a bit medicinal.

It tastes equally medicinal and herbal, bitter and boozy but there is plenty of fruitiness to break it up a bit across the back and stop it from being as harsh as it initially seems.

This is on the fuller side of medium bodied with very light carbonation. No doubt its interesting but boozy as heck. I enjoyed this more than PB thursday as the PB is nonexistent and at least the jelly aspect is noticed here.

Poured from fridge temp. Pours a super dark brown with a good amount of tan/light brown head. The nose is similar to a typical huge beer from the Bruery, but also distinct in some ways. I get the salt, toffee, Belgian yeast, and blueberries/boysenberries. Also getting some bourbon and molasses. The taste is an explosion of flavors. Very sweet and salty - really nice. Deep notes of toffee and bourbon, with salty fruit coming after. I am getting some nuts, and some coca cola flavors on the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is a bit thinner than the weekday beers, and the alcohol is definitely detectable. Overall, it's good, but I prefer the normal weekday beers.

Dull maroon wax capped 750mL bottle acquired through The Bruery’s Society. Bottled 5/1/18. Served in a Bruery teku. Enjoyed 9/6/18.

Pours near-black, dark tea brown with some loose tan bubbles that fizzle away too quickly to be considered head or retention.

The signature sweet, Bruery aromas are on full display. That familiar house yeast is there along with bourbon, berry jam, vague toasted nut, roast and a strong alcohol tingle.

The flavors are as alcoholic and decadent as expected. Bourbon-soaked berries, wet wood, a chalky peanut character, dark fruity Bruery Belgian yeast, cooked caramel, fudge, a little salt, roasty malt and a whallop of booze throughout. It’s damned delicious and mighty hot.

Fairly full body with faint carbonation. There is a roasty note in the boozey, sweet finish that poses an interesting counterpoint to the remarkably faithful peanut butter and berry jam Black Tuesday.

The Bruery delivers yet another successful spin on their classic barrel aged stout. While I think I prefer the peanut flavor in PB & Thursday, I do really like the addition here of those jammy berries on top. We’re now only two days away from perhaps the best week in bourbon barrel imperial stout history.

L - Pours a slightly burgundy dark caramel color with a thin fizzy mocha head.
S - There is a burst of boysenberry upon opening the bottle. More of the classic bourbon barrel anniversary beer aromas in the glass. Toffee, bourbon, chocolate, ethanol, with hints of berries.
T - The boysenberry comes out nice and strong on the initial sip. There is a nutty flavor in the cheeks as the initial tartness fades a little. Gives it a bit of a berries and cream flavor. There is still that rich toffee, chocolate, vanilla, flavors upon the finish. The alcohol is decently subdued considering it's 19+%.
F - This has more of a creamy texture then some of the other weekday beers. A little too much carbonation as I get that fizzy sensation upon closing my mouth after the sip but before the swallow. There is some chest heat.
O - I think there could be more peanut flavors, as it doesn't scream pb&j. but this is a nice berry variant to BT.
