Previously 13% abv, 11% abv from 2014->. 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.

Tap at Borefts 2013. Poured a deep mahogany with a huge frothy tan head. The aroma is rich red berry fruit. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a rich fruity, slightly sweet raisin palate that simply masks everything else. A super beer.

Draught @ sbwf13. Poured black with no head. Quite flat. Roasty aroma, licorice, molasses, dark fruits. Flavor has molasses, roastedness, candy sweetness with aniseeds in finish.

Draught. Pours black with virtually no head. Feels a bit flat. Some grains and bready darkness in aroma. Sweetish taste, slightly vinous. Feels flat, yes - there are some flavors but they don’t stand out in the long run.

Pours an opaque black on tap with bubbly tan ring of lacy head. Aroma is heavy on the roasted malt and Belgian yeast, lends to nice dark fruity esters, and then the barrel hits you; big vanilla and wood notes on the back end. Taste follows, smooth and bubbly. This is pretty amazing, priveledged to have tried it.

330 ml bottle. 2009 Vintage. Thanks Brett! Pours pitch black with a small foamy head that fades normally to a ring. Aroma is sweet and dense. Dark chocolate, wood, vanilla, ash, licorice, black currants and light whiskey. Taste is sweet at first but quickly turns fairly bitter. All the aromas come through nicely with the dark chocolate and burnt wood being most prominent. Thick, dense beer. Mouthfeel is very chewy but also a bit chalky. Really great imperial stout. Love everything but the slightly chalky mouthfeel.
