De Struise Brouwers "Black Albert" Imperial Stout, Belgium 11.2 oz

SKU #1046536

Imperial Stout brewed by De Struise in Belgium. Strong (13%abv) with a dark color and dark fruit aromas and flavors, rich and smooth in body with malty finish. Somewhere between a Russian Imperial Stout and a Belgian Strong Dark Ale. "This is not as much a beer as it is an experience. Originally brewed for Ebenezer’s Pub in Lovell, Maine (USA), this beer is a tribute to Albert II, sixth king of the Belgians. Nicknamed ‘laughing king’, it is only fitting that the beer named after him should put a big smile on your face. And we can safely say it does. This big mother of a Russian Imperial Stout is often considered one of our true classics. Despite the 13% ABV, you’ll find Black Albert to be dangerously drinkable. With its thick, tar-like body, it’s definitely a sipper, but the alcohol is very well-hidden. It pours pitch black and retains a strong caramel-colored head, despite the ABV. Every sip bombards you with roasty bitterness and the unique sweetness of real Belgian candy sugar. Black Albert: get tattoo’ed from the inside."

This smells like a Belgian Dubbel with lots of extras added to make it into a monster. Coffee, burnt caramel, hearty hops, bourbon deepness, chocolate malt, a little of the Belgian yeast flavor and a splash of alcohol (13%) hit the nose and the palate upon the first sip. This needs to warm up to really get the bourbon to come out. The coffee and bittersweet chocolate flavors really rise up, as does a subtle bourbon flavor. This ale is very well integrated, like Speedway Stout from Alesmith (and on the same level of quality I have to say). This is an incredible melding of flavors to create one single well designed ale flavor.
