Van Untappd: This is not as much a beer as it is an experience. Originally brewed for Ebenezerâ€™s Pub in Lovell, Maine (USA), this beer is a tribute to Albert II, sixth king of the Belgians. Nicknamed â€˜laughing kingâ€™, 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, youâ€™ll find Black Albert to be dangerously drinkable. With its thick, tar-like body, itâ€™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 tattooâ€™ed from the inside.
