2017 bottle

L - teku pour. Thin out if the bottle. Dark cola brown in the teku. Nice bubbly offwhite one finger head. Thick sticky lacyling.

S - literally made me cackle with mind blowing sensory overload. Like the decadent black tuesday with sweet nutty Nutella and vanilla whipped throughout. Fuck.

T - it tastes like black tuesday + hazlenuts... I'd say they did it right. All the dark fruit and deep carmelized sugars of its base brother + dessert like nuttiness.

F - highly carbonated, quite fizzyy. Sweet up front, finishes more dry. Although roughly the same abv as BT this variant tastes significantly hotter.

O - stellar shit. I still think BT is my favorite of the weekdays (still have CR to try) but this is right there neck to neck with it.

In the interest of fairness, I am not a huge fan of hazelnut. There is something of putting about the overall profile. That said, at the front the thick boozing this is very apparent. Lingering about the mouth, the hazelnut was very easy to detect. The field was very sticky and sweet, swinging easily to the sides of the mouth. The feel was almost chewy. Raisins and dark fruit were also present. Yet in the overall scheme of things, the hazelnut make this hard for me to like.
