Black Albert was used in a new barrel aging project. More than a year ago, Carlo was able to get his hands on a stock of Four Roses Bourbon barrels, and we happily filled them up with Batch „0". This unique creation was originally to be named 4 Black Roses in honour of its heritage, but our friends in Kentucky strongly advised us not to do so! What to do? As the disowned offspring of Black Albert, the name Cuvée Delphine imposed itself. Savouring the Belgian irony, we are most honoured to have artwork by Delphine Boël shining on this label. You will not find this ale all over the globe. There is no export program, but we will try to provide stock through our web shop and some specialty beer pubs.

Smell and taste are strongly linked, but luckily the taste of alcohol is much lower than the smell of alcohol. A really good stout, with a small taste of sugar before the alcohol aftertaste.

Powerful stout aroma. Very rich beer. Lots of different taste. I’m under the spell of this beer. Will have to drink it again because one is not enough.

Bière bien crémeuse. Goût de stout non predominant et il laisse place à d’autres saveurs. Bière bien lourde et sucré. bière de 2012.

hohops (386) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Appearance is black, a tan/dark brown thick head which clings to the glass. Looks like a beer milkshake. Rich aroma of coffee, fudge, vanilla, bourbon, roast malt hints. Massive taste- rich chocolate, dark espresso coffee, plenty of vanilla and booziness from the whisky, thick and chewy mouthfeel, clinging, dense, rich finish. Amazing.

Quack-Duck (8299) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2014
bottle. Deep black with a chocolatey brown head. Dark, roasty malty nose. Almost oily consistency, dark roasty flavours, cocoa, coffee, some caramel. Not dry, pleasantly malty with just the right sweetness. Vinous notes, vanilla and some woody flavours round this off.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2015 una sola parola!!!! WOAW!! Birra eccezionale che inizia dal suo colore cioccolatoso appena la versi nel suo bicchiere...birra a mio parere da sorseggiare per identificare bene i suoi vari sapori....che partono dal suo gusto iniziale amarognolo di caffè per poi alla seconda sorsata trasformarsi in un sapore di cioccolato e tostato!!! è stata una delle mie prime esperienze con il popolo delle Stout!
