2015 version. Slight mocha head that dissipates quickly on this very dark black pour. Enticing aroma of coffee and wonderful chocolate covered dark fruits. Flavors consist of dark roast coffee, some bittersweet chocolate and dark fruits. A full bodied stout with a thick and syrup like feel on the palate. Abv is very much not noticeable so a nice sipper on a cold night. Sweet, a little sticky, but this RIS is so flavorful and the nose matches the taste. Black Albert is a truly fantastic brew that should be tried at least once!

330 ml bottle, Brewers Droop, Bristol - Pours dark black with a large tanned foamy head. Medium carbonation. Smell - coffee, dark stoned fruits, light alcohol. Taste - coffee, roasted malts to the fore with warm alcoholic finish. Fantastic imperial stout. One of the best I've tasted.

It's very good, not worth $5 per bottle though. The flavor is solid and it's very smooth. It 's just something about Belgian stouts that I don't prefer.
