Waxed bomber poured into a Hill Farmstead tulip.
Pours a super oily dark black with a small dark brown head along with some light lacing. Nose is slightly sweet, raisins, and chocolate.
Taste is much better than any of of the four beers on their own. Rich and creamy, chocolate and raisns, light roasty flavors as well. Overall quite tasty.

22oz yellow-wax bottle, generously bought over by Doug tonight at our celebratory whale tasting. Poured into a Three Floyds teku glass today, 3/22/2014.
App- Dark opaque black body, with a beautiful tan head, one finger, with very good retention. When Doug opened this up, it was pretty much a gusher and made a mess. So, this is a well carbonated looking stout here.
Smell- Charred malts, roast malts, dark fruit, with that characteristic Black Albert charred dark fruit flavour with a touch of Belgian yeast. Very interesting, but at the same time, not the most pleasant nose that I can get from any imperial stout.
Flavour- Meh. After drinking this with Murda'd Out, the best I can say about this beer is that it's sweet with a nice roasted and charred malt character with a touch of Belgian yeast. If I had to pick the two most forward constituents, I'll go with Darkness and Black Albert. Because I don't have any of that Dark Lord soy sauce diabeetus sweetness here. Decent, but nothing that I'd call well-crafted as the components kind of clash.
Mouthfeel- Fuller bodied, good carbonation. Aftertaste of dirty water mixed with chocolate milk. I don't like that aftertaste very much.
Overall- A fine blend of stouts, definitely deserves its reputation of being a pretty lame stout next to its superior barrel-aged sibling, Murda'd Out Stout, but most good beers would also be lame next to Murda'd Out Stout. Not worth paying $30 for this. Still, it's certainly not a bad beer.
