The Bruery Black Tuesday
From The Bruery – First brewed on an early morning some time ago, before the sun had the chance to rise, this stout wreaked havoc so great upon The Bruery that the day lasted long into the new moon. Wort spills, mash clogs, skin burns, stock losses and near catastrophe forced Black Tuesday to be shut off from humanity, bound to rest in oak barrels for well over a year. Now, after sleeping through most of the modern depression, the The Bruery has no choice but to unleash Black Tuesday upon the world.
The Bruery – Black Tuesday – 6 oz. glass poured into Bruery Glassware. 19.5% abv.
Appearance: Midnight brown with a small layer of khaki froth that leaves a good amount of legs.
Aroma: Vanilla, bourbon, caramel, and sweet breakfast cereal.
Taste: Bourbon, roast, burnt malts, raisins, and a noticeable finish of spicy hops and booze warmth.
Mouthfeel: Fizzy at first but mostly goopy.
Overall: I had this after trying Chocolate Rain (Casked conditioned Black Tuesday with cocoa nibs and vanilla bean) and I think I was spoiled at that point. This isn’t something you would want to chug down, or even have a full glass of. Close to an after dinner cordial that should be paired with dessert, or alternatively paired with something savory to offset the sweetness.
