Bottle: 2013

A: Pour is thick, and dark brown with minimal head formation, retention, and lacing

S: Hazelnuts, dark figs and mixed fruits in the aroma. Quite impressive with the barrel character surfacing the roasted malts, nuts, and fruity/earthy undertones. A nice balance to the subtle foray of black licorice, toffee, molasses, smoked bourbon, vanilla, toasted coconut/marshmallows

T: More of the heat takes precedence, yet not overbearing with well-incorporated notes of raisins, caramel, brown sugar, smoke, leather, molasses, oak, cocoa, hints of nuts

M: Feel is roughly average, with fluctuating carbonation; more heat as it warms

O: Age seemed to be a benefactor, with the elegant portrayal of notes in the aroma while not too cloying. There’s heat, but it’s not overly constraining

11/12/17 @ MTKATL - Drinking this on a Grey Sunday. Delicate balance of bourbon and hazelnut. Very enjoyable!

Every beer in the Black Tuesday family is ridiculously good and worth seeking out.

Reviewed on 12/25/17
2017 bottle
L - pours a dark caramel color with a minuscule fizzy mocha head.
S - Upon opening the bottle and got a big blast of sugary hazelnuts. But in the glass, the beer smells like Black Tuesday.
T - There is classic Black Tuesday sweetness and a little bitter boozy notes. Finish is a little nutty.
F - The mouth feel is a little thin but sticky. Finish is dry and a little astringent. Definitely has chest heat.
O - I don't think this is much better than Black Tuesday. The hazelnuts are a unique variation. But I don't think there is as much depth.
