The Bruery Black Tuesday CAN Barrel Aged Imperial Stout (473ml)
Brewed by: The Bruery (Placentia, California, United States)
In a skyline filled with towering barrel-aged stouts, the elegant simplicity of Black Tuesday continues to shine the brightest. This imperial stout was aged in choice bourbon barrels for over a year, developing complexity and flavors like nothing you’ve tasted before. Roaring notes of crème brûlée and poached fig are interlaced with hints of malted milk balls and Australian licorice, sparking a decadent, sophisticated fusion fit to claim its own day of the week.
Black Tuesday pours a rich jet black with a surprisingly two-finger-thick head for the style. Immediately after pouring, the nose is greeted by notes of bourbon-poached fig and crème brûlée dancing in the glass alongside a hint of burnt almond. The palate experiences much of the same with a gentle hint of foie gras cotton candy, followed by notes of malted milk balls and stewed raspberries on the mid palate. The finish is long and bold, with notes of Australian-style licorice and cherry wood-smoked shoyu. Open with friends and enjoy.
