    I went to Ireland for 10 days a while back and drank so much Guinness (and ate so much black pudding) that my stool was solid black almost the whole time

    Just returned from the evening BT party. Overall an awesome experience and well worth the price of admission. Stars of the night for me were single barrel, 2012, and whatever the pistachio one was. Overall the variants that included some type of nuts were my favorite.

    The food was great and I really appreciated the always full charcuterie boards. Seriously ate my weight in meat and cheese.

    Mostra coffee was great, scored a bag of their bourbon barrel coffee beans and left them at a middle table before we left after holding them all night... Womp womp, super bummed about that.

    Loved the beers, people, food, and ambiance! Definitely going again next year :slight_smile:

    Also mad props to @PMR for talking to everyone who wanted to chat while sporting a tux. I was standing at a table nearby and it was a revolving door of people wanting to chat with Patrick. Classy and engaging each time - that type of engagement is part of the reason I continue coming back.

    BTW the barrel warehouse felt great, didn't feel stuffy or hot like I was fearing.

    Tell No Tales is up (along with a few Terreux 375ml bottles):

    "Mark well what you see here, mateys. This ain’t no ordinary tale or ale. Designed and destined for ye heartier souls, this spiced, autumn ale is filled to the brim with barrel-aged character from its voyage in bourbon and rum barrels. Brewed with yams, maple syrup, vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and allspice, with a dash of barleywine flare, ‘tis the motherload of flavors to fly under the flag of Captain Rue."

    Sounds delicious! Need tasting room reviews stat :slight_smile:

    Seems like a crafty return of BA Autumn Maple? I used to get that on growler fills as it was fairly drinkable and cheap. Could also be nostalgia goggles too.

    2009, b1. Waited in line outside for a few hours. When I got to the front I got to buy 3 bottles of BT and one of BA Partridge in a Pear Tree. Also bought a membership for the first year of reserve Society. BT really was a mind blowing experience back then....there was nothing quite like it. And everyone wouldn't stop talking about the chocolate variant that we got one 2oz sample of. That ended up becoming chocolate rain.

    really, @BruerJoel? only 6 Black Tuesdays purchased on Tuesday itself are eligible to be picked up in DC? i've bought two cases of BT, but i can't have six of those sent to DC -- only if i were to have bought six on Tuesday itself?

    ffs.

    you can't see the comments anymore, but the original blog post is here - http://www.thebruery.com/the-beer-from-hell/

    one of the commenters suggested "Black Tuesday" as a name and @PMR liked it.

    i suspect he's forgiven the beer at this point :slight_smile:

    I was at the tasting room yesterday and her are my notes:
    Reserve society 2015 Chocolate Rain: WOW, this beer was pretty amazing. Is there vanilla in this because I get tons of it with the chocolate and the bourbon... just amazing. I need to go back and get more! 4.5 out of 5
    Tell No Tales:
    Smells like cheap cologne. Tastes like a dump bucket at a beer tasting. This doesn’t work for me. 2.5 out of 5
    Black Tuesday 2017
    Tangy. What’s up with the tang? Looks like a barleywine, very light brown, by no means does it look like a stout. I was hoping they would correct themselves and make this years batch better but not or if the gate with me. Maybe it will age to be something better. Serverly dissapointed. 3.25 out of 5

    BT is always tangy and dark brown, why would it be any different this year? Changing the recipe of their flagship beer would be a bad idea imo.

    I am a new RS member this year and have a question- Is it possible to purchase bottles and choose the pickup option and then later change and have them ship to you?

    I live in northern ca (8+ hours from the brewery) and would like to purchase a few bottles each time they are released... However if I could have them hold 3 bottles from one month and 3 bottles from the next month and pay the shipping only once it would be nice. I plan on holding most of the stouts for a while so there is no rush to get them.

    Really? So tangy that they drink it in space?


    Because astronauts drink Tang!

    I don’t remember it being tangy. Does it die down? All previous years I’ve had didn’t register as Tang.

    Yep. Choose pickup when you buy and when you've got enough accumulated go to the merchandise page on the store and buy a flex shipper. In the order notes tell them which of your old order numbers to include.

    Remember everything you buy this year still has to be picked up or shipped by end of February.

    as expected as in tangy and a crap beer? Got it. Thanks for your detailed analysis.
    Next you will tell me Tell No Tales is as expected without saying it was good or bad.

    Also keep in mind they won't split up orders, so if you bought say 6 in one order and 7 in another they won't hold a bottle back to make one box.

    It's always had a tang to it, even going back to 2009. But, the perception of the tang could be heightened due to what you drank/ate right before you had it. Also, newly bottled BT is always hot and it takes awhile to mellow.

    I'd say Single Barrel BT was a personal favorite, right up there with the Baklava treatment. Brazilian BBQ BT was super interesting too.

    $75 isn't a lot. That's less than 2 Bruery beers, or a concert ticket or a dinner at a restaurant or a ticket to a sporting event. How could you complain about $75?

    I dont have much to say about the BT Party, as I've never been able to go. But, $75 gets me into FWIBF, and that is epic.
