Aromas are powerful: chocolate, coffee and blackberry. Taste is very interesting: fruity, roasty and rich. Too sweet, a bit heavy for my taste.

omhper (19220) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2012
Draught at SBWF! Very black with rich beige creamy head. Aroma of licorice and port. Mid sweet with full body. Lots of licorice, berry flavour is subtle. Slight resiny and plenty of tar in a really bitter finish. More mellow than the regular Albert.
