Bottle from Bill. Pour is pitch black with brownish head. Notes of dark plum, roasty cocoa, wet wood, caramel, nuts, candy sugar, coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Medium to fuller bodied stout. Booze was a creeper, warming in upper stomach. Another great Struise beer. Thanks for sharing Bill.

330 ml bottle. Dark brown with a dirty tan cap. Nose is cocoa, blackberry, molasses and wood; eventually dominated by the port. Medium to full body with tiny carb pricks. Taste is odd for a stout, quite fruity. Blackberry jam, coffee, cane sugar and hay. Finishes with dark chocolate.

Tmoney99 (11463) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a black color with a medium to large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt, dark fruit, candied sugar aroma. Full body with smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex dark fruit sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

cant put in words whats ’ wrong ’ ( less right) with it, but i’m not to crazy about this one. i think black albert itself is way better than this... its good but i’ve tasted it multiple times and im just not convinced ( yet? )

August 5, 2012 bottle shared by Brett at his tasting event. Opaque dark brown pour with head that faded quickly. Roasted malt and smoke or ash in the aroma. Taste was similar and the palate was medium to full bodied.

Puchased from the Struise shop in Brugge July ’12 - 2nd last bottle they had! Drank at home 04/08/12. Poured into a snifter to a rich black colour with a tan head that soon gives way. Smells of dark fruit and liqourice, sugars and roasted malt. Tastes of dark fruits, roasted malts, aniseed, burnt sugar and the port definately comes across. Maybe the only let down for me is the carbonation level which seemed just a little too high. Great beer and would revisit given the chance!

Sammy (9190) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2012
Black with lace and good looks even under the deck lights. A full mouthfeel. The aroma is neural, better by the bottle’s end. Creamy smooth, lots of coffee and sugar, alcohol warming.Shared Liam’s bottle from Europe.

marcus (7081) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle at Kulminator. Pours dark brown with a nice tan head and a chocolate aroma. There is a robust chocolate and treacle flavor with a hint of port. Very complex and tasty, as it incorporates the best features of Black Albert and Kate.
