COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Belgian Royal Stout was brewed as a tribute to one of America’s best pubs. Jennifer and Chris Lively who run the place may be proud of Ebenezer’s Pub. Not only do they have 35 beers on draught, most of these are hard to find Supreme Belgian Ales. Above that, they have one of the most extensive bottle-conditioned beer lists through different bottling dates we have ever seen. Not only can you drink almost any Belgian beer, the worlds best brewery’s are represented. A lot of the guests talk about the American Kulminator, yet with that difference that the Belgian inspired food, is simply great. Black Albert was brewed and crafted with a 100% Belgian ingredients. Pours a blacker than black beer with an inch of dark tan head that lingers as it cascades into itself. Nice aroma of bitter-sweet chocolate, fresh torrified coffee beans, barley, candy sugar, complex fruits, and floral hops. At the front, there is spiced baker’s chocolate, fresh mocha, caramel like barley touches, and underlying hints of dried fruits which marries the back of your palate and features a Top, and well integrated but not overbearing hop flavour. The after-taste is well balanced and shows a panorama of extreme sensations like chocolate and coffee bitters, a plum cake richness that covers the palate, and a crisp impression of hop bitters that brings elegance and freshness into this massive brew.

GTAEgeek (5072) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 29, 2022
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2022 375 mL bottle, shared with Albert (because, of course). Pours black, with a small, tan head. The aroma is toffee, black chocolate, almond, cherry brandy, and cloves. Sweet and malty, with a mellow bitterness. Heavy body, chewy, and thick, and chalky. Yeasty and delicious.

colui72 (4117) - Yuen Long, HONG KONG - JUL 1, 2022
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2022 As they like to call it in Belgium... this is a Belgian Royal Stout, which yeah, it's an Imperial Stout, but with Belgian characteristics. Aroma gives dark-chocolate, with both sweet and roasty notes, coffee, fruity esters and floral hops. Pours black, small beige head with retention along the glass and legs after sips. Tastes bitter, with spicy dark chocolate, dried fruits, roasted coffee and barley, burnt caramel. Dark malts, fruity, floral and bitter hops lingers in the after taste. Full body, with a medium carbonation, viscous, creamy, boozy with a heat. A powerful Imperial/Royal Stout, that can company you for hours in a rainy day. Or not.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2022 Bottle shared at Det Bette Ølhus. Black with a small brown head. Low carbonation. Aroma: Big aroma with chocolate, bourbon, fruit, malt and caramel. Sweet with restrained roasted bitterness. Really good and a bit different from other stouts. Will buy again!

ricardostercios (1587) - Castelló de la Plana, SPAIN - MAR 28, 2022
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2022 Color negro, opaca. Espuma marrón, escasa y efímera. Aroma medio intenso, alcohol, vino tinto, frutos rojos, sobre todo cerezas dulces, notas de regaliz, madera y tabaco que se intensifican al atemperar. Sabor medio intenso, madera, regaliz, nueces, vino tinto y cerezas, notas de tabaco, anís y chocolate, final medio largo de dulzor chocolatero medio alto y posgusto aromático, alcohol notable. Textura semioleosa. Carbonatación baja. Tras unos primeros tragos algo vinosos y ácidos, ganan protagonismo los tonos amaderados y aromáticos. Muy al estilo Struisse, siempre te quedas con ganas de que dure unos pocos tragos más.

ianwelby (3417) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - MAR 19, 2022
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2022 Smells malty with dried fruit. Flavour is dried fruit, loads of malt, chocolate, loads of booziness, a little anise. Rich and tasty and very boozy. Nice but dangerous.
