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.

huineman (1060) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 31, 2020
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2020 Bottle in yet another visit to Kulminator with my dad, July 23, 2020. BB: Sep 2015. It pours pitch black with a reddish cast and a long-lasting (despite the age), thin, tan-to-camel hued head. Aroma is not strikingly intense, rather medium-intensity. Being an old ale, it's no surprise to find first some oxidizing scents, such as red apple, but nothing unpleasant. It then yields way to the foreseen stout aromas, the likes of caramel, coffee, blueberries, mulled wine, even a nice tinge of raisins. Mouthfeel is slightly acidic, rendering a fresh feeling to it that makes it less strong than the label promised, and much more enjoyable than some of its bitterer counterparts. Talking about bitterness, it's present and well balanced. Aftertaste brings molasses, coffee and milk chocolate and lasts for a good while. Very nice.

kalasanty (589) - POLAND - MAR 24, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2020 Butelka 0,33 l, rozlew 21.04.2017 r. Kolor smoliście czarny , całkiem nieprzejrzyste. Piana jasnobrązowa, bardzo obfita, gęsta, szybko pęka i opada do warstwy, ładna koronka. Aromat z początku bardzo ładny i intensywny, nuty pralin, deserowej czekolady, kawy, palone, popiołowe, alkoholu, z początku lekki aldehyd, który po ogrzaniu niestety przykrywa wszystko. Smak przynosi jeszcze większe rozczarowanie, przywodzi na myśl gorsze warki żywieckiego portera, lekko słodkie i kwaśnawe, jeszcze więcej aldehydu, pod spodem kawa, paloność wpadająca w popiół, gorzka czekolada, przypalone wafelki, alkohol. Pełnia wysoka, wysycenie średnie, goryczka średnio wysoka, palona, alkohol ostry, gryzie w połączeniu z aldehydem. Niestety wielki zawód przez ten aldehyd, tym bardziej, że tkwi tu potencjał na wielkie piwo. Acetaldehyde ruins potentially great beer. Sorry.
