The Bruery Black Tuesday (2017)

What the brewers say

“This year’s edition of Black Tuesday emerges from oak after extensive barrel aging, developing deep, warming notes of vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate, bourbon, dark fruit, and singed oak.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Boozy (there are actually serious legs in the glass and almost zero foam). Lots of dark malty things. Toffee, melanoidin, dark chocolate, toffee, and maple syrup.”

Flavor: “Alcohol is the dominant flavor, followed by a rich melanoidin sweetness with dark fruit, chocolate, and hints of tomato juice. Finish is sweet and boozy, not particularly bitter.”

Overall: “Massively alcoholic. Blurs the boundaries of beer flavors and moves into the territory of cognac and sherry. But as far as ‘feats of strength’ beers go, there is fantastic complexity throughout, and the alcohol is what you expect for something this strong.”
