Pours almost black with a big, fluffy, tan head, and nice lacing. Aroma of toffee, coffee, and dried fruits. Very complex with an incredible toffee finish, Wow, a great balance and mouth-feel. My new BFF.

This is a very complex RIS. It poured jet black with a brown head that dissipates quickly to the edge of the glass. The smell is chocolate, coffee, raisins, and a little booze at the end. The taste follows suit but there is an element of flavor that lets you know it's Belgian. The feel is thick and chewy the way you'd want for this style. This is an outstanding stout!

Bottled, 330ml at Nuetnigenough, Brussels. Black with tan head. This was super intense with bitter chocolate flavours to the fore, heavy on the palate, drying, burnt malt hints. Lasting forever. Big and beastly, a beer to savour.

I had Cuvee Delphin first and thought the black albert would be pretty standard IS. But it was wrong. This beer is like a Belgian Strong Stout. The dark fruits aroma like resins, plums, black currents is very well harmonized with black malts character. Sweet, fruity, chocolate, roasty, no booze at all. Fantastic.

Tar black, small tan head. Roast, anise, malt aroma. Flavor’s like nose, but substitute licorice for anise. Palate is ultra smooth. Long finish.
