Black Tuesday

Coming in at just under 20% abv, Black Tuesday could really make for a Blacked Out Tuesday.  This Barrel Aged Imperial Stout packs a heckuva malt punch, tasting much of raisins and dried fruits.  The bourbon barrel character shines through in some caramels and a slight oakiness, as well as the slight alcohol bite.  This beer makes for a wonderful shared pour among friends, but be careful when enjoying alone.  It may leave you wondering where Tuesday’s gone.

Taste.  Very malt forward.  Raisins.  Whiskey characteristics (oaky and caramels).
