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.
