2010 bottle, first batch in 33cl bottle. Too old for coffee but still good.

Bottle shared last night at Umberto's tasting. '12 vintage.

Pours a fairly dark black, with a half inch head, not a whole lot in that department, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells a lot like Jack Daniels, honestly- that portion of the blend really stands out. I also get a good amount of creamy coffee and sweet chocolate.

For me, this is a big step up from regular Black Albert. I don't get a whole lot of the big dark sweet fruit flavor that Black Albert provides in spades, it's still pretty sweet though, creamy sweet chocolate, and iced coffee with sweet vanilla creamer come through very strongly. The booze doesn't show all that strongly, which is nice, and probably a product of the beer's age.

This has an unbelievably creamy and smooth mouthfeel, with a lower level of carbonation. This is really, really drinkable.

I'm not entirely sure if this is worth the $42 price tag, but it's definitely tasty, and you can tell a lot of work when into creating this one.
