A rare special version of the Black Albert. It’s a delicous and complex black beer with subtle tones of wood and bourbon. Get this if you get the chance. Steasy66 (1155) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2013

Great Pour. Big chocolate, hints of alcohol and coffee on the nose. No alcohol in the taste, just chocolate and coffee beans. Didn’t get much of the typical barrel flavours. Hard to pick between this and Black Albert, both great beers.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2015 On tap at Local Option, in a snifter, pours black with thin tan head that quickly fades. Roast coffee and dark chocolate on the nose and palate ... A potent brew indeed...

On draft (taster) at World of Beer - Tempe. Pours a deep black with a thin, quickly dissipating mocha head. Typical nose of licorice, heavy oak, some phenols, and just a hint of bourbon. Sweet, malty flavor with dark chocolate and vinegary woodiness; the Belgian yeast takes center stage late. Very thin body for a stout, much lighter than Black Albert. Solid, though very little bourbon comes through on the taste.

On draught at 2013 Portland International Beerfest. Black with tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, tobacco, and dark malt. Taste is liquor, chocolate, fig, and sweetness. For 13%, it hides the alcohol well. VsXsV (4437) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2013
