Sample had the FFF Anniversary Party. Served in a plastic sampling cup.
A: Very dark black with a tan head. Splotchy lace is left down the cup.
S: Sweetness with toasted malts and some chocolate fill the nose. Nothing special.
T: Taste is much more complex than the nose. Roasted malts, dark chocolate. Slight bitter coffee grounds with some nice dark fruits (figs and dates mostly). There is a little booze on the backend with a touch of heat.
M: Heavy bodied with a viscous coating quality to it. Good carbonation.
O: Tasted like a blend of Darkness and Dark Lord. I haven’t had Black Albert, but I can’t imagine it added anything substantial to this. It tasted good, but it wasn’t mind blowing.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle at Kingcecils Birthday Tasting. Pours jet black with a medium beige head. The aroma is port, ripe fruit, toasted caramel, light chocolate, hard roasted malt and a great load of hops to balance it. The flavour is intense. Loads of coffee, ripe fruit, hard roasted malt, chocolate and some liquorice. Wow!! KingCecil (2084) - DENMARK - OCT 6, 2012

Bottle. Pours a pitch black color with a tan head. Aroma is of coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, some almost grassy juicy hop notes, toffee, dark caramel, dark fruits, tobacco and liquorice. Flavor follows the nose and has a nice balance between sweetness and roast, I get lots of coffee, roasted malt, almost grassy juicy hop notes, toffee, dark chocolate, dark caramel, dark fruits, liquorice and tobacco. The body is full with a viscous mouth feel. Overall a pretty nice blended brew, and the age has done it well. I think I prefer the different beers on their own though. hallinghansen (3193) - Odense SV, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2012

Black with a faint red highlight. Small tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate and licorice with notes of toffee, dried fruit, alcohol and coffee. Sweetish licorice, chocolate and ashy flavour with lots of hops, and a hint of coffee. Dedollewaitor (16171) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2012
Bottle @ Odense September Tasting, 2012. Thanks to HallingH for sharing. Pours nearly black with a creamy beige head. Sweet nose. Nuts, roast and chocolate. Smooth and full bodied. Oily and slick. A bit of charcoal, coffee and liquorice. Lasting bitter finish. Tasty stuff. Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 11, 2012
Received from a trade with beersis. Pours jet black with two finger head. Smell is big red fruit, some roast and a subtle chocolate. Taste is smooth chocolate, very thick, some spice and some heat, good lacing. I like this a lot better than straight Dark Lord, I think they did a good job with the blending. conway (2210) - - SEP 6, 2012
Uploading from Beer Buddy App. Notes from memory. Very nicely done, but maybe not as good as its individual components. Lots of alcohol, chocolate and coffee notes. Just didn't seem as special as any of the 4 beers that it was made from, although I've yet to try Black Albert.
