From a 2013 bottle. (thanks to Ultrarunner100 for the share)
This was a sublime experience. Black Tuesday pours as dark as the night, and at that you are captivated. The nose was full of amazing bourbon, chocolate and vanilla. The flavor includes all the nose and some anise and a nice warming booze for good measure. Feel is rich and full. I found this beer to be similar to some good ports I have had, and that is the way I recommend one approach it.
