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.

AleGuru2 (379) - Houten, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2021
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2021 Zwart bier met een bruine schuimkraag die snel verdwenen is. Geuren zijn nootachtig, geroosterd, koffie. Smaak heeft bijna iets scherps door de geroosterde smaken.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2021 Bottle from Knightly Spirits in Orlando, FL. Aroma is dark breads, dark fruits, molasses, treacle, coffee. Taste is tangy dark things (bread, chocolate, spiced fruits, molasses). An incredible blend of ancient Belgian charms and new-school euro Stoutness.

davidezdonz (1496) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - JUN 16, 2021
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2021 A 330ml bottle, 2020 vintage, bottled on 18th March 2021, with a best before date of bottled date +5 years. Poured into a De Struise tulip glass. It was black in colour with a nice big three finger brown head that had decent retention while leaving some lacing. Aromas of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, cola, with notes of licorice, berries, and caramel. Tastes lightly bitter, roasty coffee, dark chocolate, candi sugar sweetness, dark stone fruit, plum, prunes, with notes of berries and maybe licorice. Smooth, creamy, full bodied, with soft carbonation. Overall an excellent sipper with alcohol well hidden. Good bitter and sweet balance.
