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

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.

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.
