In a blind tasting by BJCP trained experts, this beer rated


The Bruery Black Tuesday Port (2017)

Aroma: “Musty cork, mushroom, light roast, strong fruit esters (apple and pear), some green-apple notes, spice notes of pepper or clove, some nail polish remover.”

Flavor: “Tart dark fruit, not much stout/roast character. The musty character carries through from the nose. Very sweet and very boozy, but the booze helps balance the sweetness. Finish is tannic.”

Overall: “There’s some great underlying dried-fruit malt character, with a pleasant warming booziness, but the musty cork/mushroom quality is just too much.”
