COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draft at Lord Hobo, was not very impressed with this. Watery black body. Big roastiness, dark chocolate, boozy. Very thin, ok flavor. Don’t get the huge ratings

Negro opaco con espuma beige. Aromas de maltas tostadas, licor y uvas pasas. Es densa y entra dulce y afrutada acabando con un agradable amargor seco y acafetado. Muy rica.

Bottle at home, courtesy of Eric. Big thanks man! Pour is deep black with a small tan head. Big raisins, figs, dark fruits, red grape, roast, marshmallow, graham crackers, vanilla, and coffee in the aroma. Taste is rich dark chocolate, dates, tangy, prunes, toasted bread, licorice, nutty, grapey, light wood, and earthy. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Pretty tasty belgian style stout.

radarsock (897) - Vermont, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Had on tap at Lost Nation Saturday evening. Shared with jamesewelch. $3 for the 3 oz. serving. Pours a mahogany-tinted black; no head whatsoever. Syrupy and viscous. Aromas of soy sauce, booze, mashed bananas, cinnamon, vanilla beans, bourbon, and roasted pears. Tastes the same with the addition of brown sugar, young oak, bing cherries, black licorice candies, blackcurrants, raisins, white chocolate, and sugarplums. Slightly acidic by swallow. Dangerously drinkable.

Full bodied sweet caramel slightly roasted beer. Quite some yeast in the aroma. From the barrel aging not much sourness or vanilla, a slight bit.

Kolsvart med medium stort mörkbrunt skum! Doftar söt av rostad malt och lite whisky! Smakar verkligen fatlagrad med inslag av kaffe, choklad och lite dessertvin! Vintage 2009 så ca 5 år gammal! Grymt bra öl!
