The Bruery Grey Monday

photo (1)18.6% ABV. This is Black Tuesday (Imperial Stout) aged with hazelnuts from The Bruery in Placentia, California. This beer was only available to those who belonged to an “elite” (paid) membership club offered by The Bruery and only distributed in extremely limited quantities. Black Tuesday is one of my favorite beers and in my top 10 list and when I learned that The Bruery offered a Black Tuesday variant that was aged with hazelnuts, I had to get my hands on a bottle somehow. I had to give up a lot to land this special beer. Pours dark brown along with a razor thin light brown head that left behind light lacing throughout. I could immediately smell the hazelnut and booziness right off the bat along with some delicious chocolate notes Flavors of roasted hazelnuts, brown sugar, sticky chocolate, toffee, light molasses and bourbon vanilla. Full bodied, well-carbonated, slightly cloying on the palate, and a boozy finish with some lingering heat throughout. Overall, an amazing bourbon- and nutty-centric beer!
