    Anyone else here had this?

    It's very nice, and suitable for people who like the strong umami taste of De Struise's Black Damnation. On that note, my only quarrel with the beer is that it could just as easily be a thin imperial stout.

    I meant to say Black Albert, and batch 0 at that, not Black Damnation.

    I've got one but not had it yet. Looking forward to it. Do you reckon it had any aging potential?

    Yeah. There's a strong hop presence to it now so once that begins to fade there'll certainly be change in the taste profile.
