stangger (615) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Dark, deep, with a rich purple hue. A touch of sweetness, strong roasted malt, complex fruit flavors that last for what seems like a minute after each sip. Blackberry and chocolate fight for the finish. Spectacular.

Bottle, shared at RBAG 2015 by dfearnly. Near black, hearty black malts, spicy, with understated berry character. Not sure whether the berry adds much here, but such a great beer anyway!

Black Albert strong stout inspired by the British Imperial Stout tradition as revived by American microbrewers. Described as a "Belgian Royal Stout" and made with ingredients of only Belgian origin. Bitterness of 100 IBU, deep black color of 160 EBC.

tectactoe (3120) - Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Bottle: Dense black body with a khaki foam that recedes quickly to a collar. Smells like chocolate covered raspberries... Or blackberries, I guess. Lots of berry juicy, chocolate, roast, & burnt caramel. Flavor has a sharp berry skin note to it up front, as it lingers into a softer sweetness from the chocolate malt. Notes of molasses, burnt brown sugar, soy. Finishes like chocolate covered raspberry candy with a touch of roasted malt to offset & balance. Pretty warming & heavy. Good stuff.

Ferris (8012) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 30, 2015
Bottle - Dark chocolate, some light blueberry and barrel notes. Jet black with a nice brown head. Deep dar roast, bitter chocolate and some bitter and Berry notes. Blueberry is subtle.

75cl bottle, served in Tulip. What an amazing brew, only the aroma seems "average" for a beer of this class. Blackberries are so well integrated, just a slight fruity touch enough to make it special. Wood, coffee, hops, long and pleasant dry aftertaste...and the rest is magic till the end.

Chalumeaux (433) - Methuen, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Poured from bottle thanks AdamJackson. Dark chocolate color with lacey tan head. Aromas of oak berry port and roasted malt. Taste is sweet with a nice mouth feel and a warm lingering burn. Awesome.
