The Bruery So Happens It's Tuesday 2016

What the brewers say

“Our Black Tuesday stout is named in honor of the great stock market crash of 1929. So Happens It’s Tuesday is similarly dark and delicious, but in a more affable format, reminding us that there is always a bit of good to be found within the bad.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Chocolate, roast, bourbon, and light oak, with a light smokiness. Some moderate dark caramel, vanilla, molasses, toffee, and bourbon. Fruity, with notes of apple, pear, plum, light white wine, cherry, and prune.”

Flavor: “Slight brightness up front, that has a touch of citrus that verges on sour—lime, perhaps? More fruity notes of pear, apple, white raisin, Riesling, dark cherry, and plum. Some malty sweetness of chocolate and caramel, with vanilla and a little oak—the bourbon comes through and adds so much to this beer. Mouth-filling carbonation and a luscious mouthfeel.”

Overall: “A very complex and bright imperial stout, with fruits from the whole spectrum as well as dark chocolate and coffee throughout. The acidity with the sweetness and the barrel complexity make it deceptively easy to drink.”
