On tap at When Pigs Fly. In a snifter the beer was black with a dark cocoa-colored head. The head dissipated rather quickly.

Chocolate aroma, some fruit. Booze.

Great taste. Dark mocha chocolate, brown sugar. Berry taste, maybe not as much as I thought would be there, but still a great addition. Boozy taste, but in a positive way.

A very rich beer. A lot of alcohol, sip it slowly.

VARIANTS!

Ebony body, creamy mocha head - aroma, much like the base beer, is a hammering of bitter malt. Charred malt, dirt, dark fruit. The blackberry just doesn't play well here because Black Albert is so dense and bitter, making the delicate berry difficult to pinpoint I think all of these black albert variants are a bit overrated.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Almost black. Huge mocha head. Excellent retention.

Smell - Belgiany. Roasty chocolate. A bit of fruitiness. It's a little more fruity than regular Black Albert.

Taste - Great blend of caramel, chocolate, and fruitiness. Chocolate most predominant, coming out as a dark chocolate in the back. Slightly bitter.

Mouthfeel - Heavy, but not boozy. High carbonation.

Overall - It's less subtle than regular, but still very good. Where is the port?
