The Bruery So Happens It’s Tuesday

What the brewers say

“Dark and delicious like Black Tuesday, but in a more affable format. Things happen, and life goes on. This beer can be enjoyed in all of those moments and seasons.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Dark roast coffee with a touch of cream. There’s a subtle hint of chocolate that peeks out from behind the vanilla, toasted malt, and alcohol. Rich, but not overpowering, dark chocolate and sweet dark cherry. Medium sherry notes indicative of some age? Leather, moderate caramel, touch of nutty toast, light plum.”

Flavor: “Moderate dark chocolate, coffee, and vanilla, big fruit—cherry, apricot, plum, mango, and peach. High sweetness up front with high oak notes. Caramel coffee with a shot of chocolate syrup and a jigger of whiskey. Smooth blend of chocolate and coconut support the cherry sweetness and help to dry it out.”

Overall: “A big fruity beer throughout, with some fruity dark chocolate and earthy oak notes. It was a bit surprising. A very tasty, fairly estery version of the style. All of the pieces fit together well, but it does finish a bit sweet.”
