Giving it a 4 as despite it being a 13% beer, I drank it without really thinking about how good it..... at that ABV it should scream out of the glass and be a 4.5 ++ easily.

On tap at Craft Ale House - 5 Oz pour. As all of the De Struise offerings, this is incredibly complex. Pours an ink black with small dark brown head. Smell is of bitter chocolate, whiskey and earth. Taste is lots of dark malts, oak, peat, smoke, scotch whiskey, dark fruit and a touch of chocolate. The body is a little thin for me, but the mouthfeel is coating and nice. Overall this is fantastic and takes Black Albert to a whole new level. Well worth the price of admission.
