De Struise: Black Albert 2016 13% [330ml]
They say "This Belgian Royal Stout was brewed as a tribute to one of America's best pubs. Jennifer and Chris Lively who run the place, may be proud of Ebenezer's Pub. Black Albert is brewed and crafted with 100% Belgian ingredients. At the front, there is spiced baker's chocolate, fresh mocha, caramel-like barley touches, and underlying hints of dried fruits, which marry with the well-integrated but not overbearing hop flavour."
We say "This is a buy one, cellar two imperial stout. Laden with roasted, toasted and smoky flavours, hints of sweetness and the warmth and kick of alcohol. If you were to age this, the alcohol would mellow and the chocolate, coffee, dried fruits and spice would come through more."
