jbruner (2315) - Athens, Georgia, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Pours an opaque black on tap with bubbly brown ring of lacy head. Aroma is strong roasted malt and dark fruits, with hints of chocolate and Belgian yeast. Taste follows with a definite fresh fruit quality that adds to more sweet chocolate notes. A little thin, but the booze is so well hidden it drinks like a sweet stout. This is amazing!

Bosbouw (1237) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2013
Mooie donkerbruine kleur met een volle bruine kraag. Ruikt een volle koffie en vanille geur. Smaakt erg goed. Heeft iets fruitigs en kers. Volle koffie smaak en een goede brandende alchol nasmaak.

Abijen (1472) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2013
Pours a beautiful black beer with a big brown head. Smells butter, coffee and bit alcoholic. Tastes vanilla coffee and roasty, also bit burning like the black albert. Thick body good low carbo and a sticky texture.

Erg sterke smaak, koffie, branderig maar toch fruitig. Super zwart, mooi bruin schuim. Perfect mondgevoel

brystmar (1257) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2013
On tap. Beautiful pour black as night, tan head & lace. Deeply roasted, dried fruit, boozy, berries tickle the taste buds at the end. Just enough berries to make a splash. Silky body. Delicious.

This is rich and very interesting but also rather odd. It is jammy and sweet but also fairly bitter. Initially these don’t integrate but after some time in the glass, some palate adjustment or a bit of temperature rise, more so.

joeneugs (3240) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 12, 2013
On draft at Trappist Provisions. It pours a very dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is lightly jammy with cocoa and nice subtle notes of port and wood. The flavor is pretty much the same. Light blackberry jam balanced nicely with roasted malt. Not as complex as some others (like the regular black albert) but well executed and not over-fruited.

bytemesis (3151) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Tap. Pours opaque black, small brown head, good lacing. Aroma is roasty, coffee, cocoa, a bit fruity and vinous. Flavor is the same, some sweetness and fruitiness counter balanced by medium roasty bitterness. Not a lot of barrel going on here. Medium body, almost a bit watery. Somewhat hot due ABv. Nice beer.
