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.

På fat. Smak och doft av choklad, svartvinbär, laktris med toner av trä och lönnsirap. Fruktig, torr, smakrik. Syrlig, oljig och vinös med obefintlig kolsyra. Välbalanserad med bitterchokladbeska.

bursprak (417) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2014
33 cl bottle. 2009 vintage. Pours a dark black with a small tan head that settles and leaves lacings on the top. Aroma is a bit boozy, chocolate, fudge and some light espresso. Really smooth mouthfeel with a oily like texture. Taste is smooth as well, no sign of the booze presnt in the nose. I get lots of cocoa, sweet vanilla fudge and some caramel. Really nice and nicely balanced Imperial Stout.
